Brainstorming WP Framework 0.3

Development of version 0.3 for WP Framework is undergoing it’s final rounds of testing. This release is a pretty major change for the framework and is a complete rethink on how WordPress theme frameworks should work.

One of the big debates about themes is deciding what functions are better left for themes, rather then plugins, or WordPress core itself. I’ve been shying away from doing any SEO for WP Framework, but might reconsider this as an extension*. This should solve the problem where you’d rather have your favorite plugin handle this for you. WP Framework gets the best of both worlds!

If you have any ideas for feature request, suggestions, or ideas, leave a comment and I’ll consider it for inclusion!

*An extension is an optional feature that you’ll be able to tack onto the core download (once I get that up!).

0.2.2 Release

WP Framework 0.2.2 is a minor transitional release, preparing you for the big 0.3. What’s new? Base.css, a new CSS stylesheet that reapplies some sensible styles for all the inline elements and sets a base vertical rhythm. It’s a work in progress but I finally wanted to include it in core after taking it out (last minute) during the 0.1 push. Hopefully this stylesheet will come as an aide during development so you don’t always have to reapply what reset.css removes.

There’s also a slight change in the file structure. I removed the /custom/ directory temporarily and all of it’s contents are now within /assets/, a new folder in the root directory. This change makes all your theme assets just a few clicks away instead of /library/custom/css/*.

And that’s 0.2.2. Please post any bugs or feedback in the forums.
