I have wanted to try a WordPress theme framework for a while and I am going to give this framework a run. It is written by Justin Tadlock whose work I like very much. He wrote the WordPress Members Plugin which I use on a variety of sites.
You want a framework that puts you in control of your design, is 100% open source, and is completely $free to download? You’ve come to the right place. Hybrid Core isn’t used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world by mere chance.
I’m going to give a run on a test site and see how we go.
