Introducing the WooFrameworkAllan Fuelling – Fuel Web Media
WooThemes• Head over to WordPress.org to download the current version.• Extract the files
WooFramework• The WooFramework is included with every premium WordPress theme from WooThemes. It is the basis for many features that are available with their themes. One such feature is the options panel which allows for extensive yet easy-to-use customization for theme users.
Sidebar Manager • The Sidebar Manager is a new tool for your theme. As the name suggests, it will give you control over what you want to add to any sidebar space anywhere on your site.
Pre-defined Theme Options • Every WooTheme comes with built-in or pre-defined options. Settings like custom logo uploading, alternative style selectors, custom CSS input, custom RSS links and tracking code input are common in all our themes. • But that is just the tip of the iceberg. Themes come with a huge amount of options over and above the ones mentioned already. Options for sliders, ad spaces, colors, images, layouts, typography, and plenty more for fine- tuning your theme for your specific needs.
How it makes your theme better• The best thing about the WooFramework is the integration of more theme options that will give you greater control over the way your theme works without having to mess so much with the theme files in order to change the looks and functionality of your theme. Standardizing the themes also means that if WooThemes releases a theme you like better you can quickly change over and not worry about having to reset all your options – as they will be remembered by your WP database.
