What's so special about ThemeFrame! What does it do?

Dumb question: What's so special about ThemeFrame!

I've seen the video - it looks awesome
But... I think a few more lines of text explaining exactly what it does would have helped!

Can I use it to develop ANY layout for Wordpress?
How well do I need to know CSS?

How about adding extra menus and other interactive objects (non Flash) - how well does it cope?

What does it NOT do? What limitations does it have?

Can I use it to apply a graphic shadow outline to DIV's?

Can I use it to change underlying backgrounds?

Ready to buy... would appreciate answers to the above

Where is it hosted?
Do I get the code and host on my server?
Or do I use from somewhere else as a web based service?

Thanks!

The simple answer is Themeframe is a theme creation tool. It is pretty much a blank slate for developing most any look and feel you are after. Once the theme is created it is like any other theme. You can add plugins etc.

While knowledge of CSS can help the interface it very easy to adjust widths, colors, etc with sliders and color pickers.

The background dialogs have pickers for colors and upload dialogs for images. You can create rounded corners and there is even the ability to create rounded corners for IE with javascript. Shadows and other CSS3 specific stuff can be added to a CSS section.

What is a benefit for some is the inability for the end user to tweak (mess up) settings. To make changes to layout you would just edit and save as a new theme.

There is still work to be done but this is a pretty neat tool that is going to net neater.

2 weeks ago I purchased TF16 to be able to make a wordpress site quickly.
I'm not at all a Webdesigner. I understand CSS lines.

Here is the result: my TF site
It's not a perfect site but it's ok for me.

So I am really convinced by TF

And I may use it soon to renew my personal site (which took me hours and hours to adapt from a GPL theme).

Thank you very much
I am glad to see that if I tried to get something clean and simple it seems it's quite achieved.
Really TF helped me a lot.

Hello! I've seen that many themes (like those from elegantthemes.com) come with several shortcuts that create several functionalities, like buttons, content boxes, toggled content, tabbed content, slideshows, social media buttons, password protected content, column layouts, image sliders, tooltip scripts, etc.

How does ThemeFrame address these type of features?

Will I be able to create custom behaviour sites like my current one at http://lalomarquez.net/ ?

Thank you in advance,

Ed.

The shortcode functionalities or that theme package are really just built in plugins. For instance the Content Boxes shortcode is very similar to the Special Text Boxes Plugin but the plugin has quite a bit more functionality in that you can easily design your own box.

So the answer to your question is Themeframe doesn't address those items mentioned as they are available in the many plugins out there.

Thank you for your fast reply, Larry.

So, if I want a special content slider in my front page, or if I want some shortcuts added to the wysiwyg editor like, for example, a button for columns (one half, one half last, etc.), and the like, I have to find available plug-ins to install those functionalities?

It would be nice if ThemeFrame had a special section where one could add those functionalities so that the produced zip package was complete at the moment of install by an end user without having to download plug-ins after activating the theme.

It would be nice if all the functionality someone wants is built in but unfortunately that adds a lot of bloat to the package and you don't necessarily have the functionality the user wants. I like adding what I want via plugins and have the theme be the theme. For some end users who just want to put up a blog and not have to figure out what plugins to install that t might be a simpler way of going but Themeframe is really geared for those who want to build a custom site.

You can put together your own custom set of plugins and upload all at once instead of installing one at a time.

I agree with you. I guess that a software that would do most everything would have to be as big as and cost something similar to Word, Excel, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and the like. Thank you for your help and best regards, Ed.

I will add the option to add functionalities to a theme like breadcrumbs and SEO options so that plugins won't be needed for those.

It is not planned to include many plugins though because they would have to be maintained too, not just included at some point.

You can ship most plugins (mainly the smaller, easier ones) with a theme (and have the plugin be activated when the theme is activated) by including the plugin in the theme's directory, i.e. in a subdirectory

/my-theme/index.php
/my-theme/..other theme files..
/my-theme/images/
/my-theme/included-plugins/
/my-theme/included-plugins/someplugin.php


and include it in the functions.php of the theme:
PHP Code:
include_once (TEMPLATEPATH '/included-plugins/someplugin.php');
