This is probably a totally silly question answered a thousand times. But, I really want to be clear on the nature of ThemeFrame.

Is the theme created (and output) by ThemeFrame a standard type theme?

I guess, another way to ask the question would be: Is ThemeFrame a type of Graphic User Interface used to create themes?

The main reason I ask is that if themes created by ThemeFrame contain the generalized code needed for the amazing customization that ThemeFrame does, then in practice the theme would be bloated.

I am hoping to create lean themes that do not have much in the way of excess baggage.

Does my question make sense?

Regards,
Claude

Yes it is a graphic user interface to create themes. After creation you export the the theme which does not have the code for creation built in. To edit a theme you created in Themeframe you would import it, edit it, and export.

Thanks for the reply. Much appreciated.

I take it then that the theme as exported will be entirely self-contained.

For example I'm hoping it would not have code such as:

Code:
div#wrapper {
	width: <?php echo $bfa_ata['layout_width']; ?>;
	<?php // if layout is fluid, set min/max width, if defined:
	if(stristr($bfa_ata['layout_width'], 'px') === FALSE) { 
	echo ($bfa_ata['layout_min_width'] == "" ? "" : "min-width: " . $bfa_ata['layout_min'] . "px;\n"); 
	echo ($bfa_ata['layout_max_width'] == "" ? "" : "max-width: " . $bfa_ata['layout_max'] . "px;\n");	
	} ?>
	}
The flexibility of Atahualpa theme is amazing. But if I create a theme, I am not looking for flexibility in the exported theme. It should basically be locked down an changed only by re-editing in the ThemeFrame then re-exported.

Are we on the same page?

It of course has a style sheet but there are currently no ways to change the theme other than editing in Themeframe for editing the theme files themselves. It doesn't have code as you mentioned. For instance here is the code you mentioned as rendered in Themeframe.
HTML Code:
div#wrapper {
margin-left:auto;
margin:auto;
text-align:center;
width:980px;
}
