Frameworks are mostly for noobs who want to create a website for their aunt’s beauty salon! Sorry if i insulted someone, but that’s my opinion about frameworks and you can see that it isn’t nice :))

I couldn’t disagree more, and such a vague generality is more ignorant than insulting. Frameworks are all over the place for a variety of reasons, they’re often powerful, chalked full of time saving code libraries/snippets/functions that you’d otherwise have to build from scratch. In WP frameworks they often provide the core foundation for things like threaded comments, custom post types, image processing/resizing, thumbnail functionality (current and legacy methods), as well as the core structure and organization of things – the list goes on… I’ll never code a site from scratch when I can build on something excellent like CodeIgniter, or EE for general web development.

Anyway, IMHO , honing in a sweet custom framework to use in your WP themes I think is critical to productivity, especially once you’ve tailored it with all your goodies just how you like.

I agree with chrisfay, saying frameworks are for noobs is just ignorant. Ever tried to build something with a framework that goes further than the tutorials? ;)

Ah sorry, i see that you mention CodeIgniter so i realized that i din’t explain that i was actually referring to WP frameworks only (because author asked about WP framework).

And you say that WP frameworks come with stuff like custom post types, image processing/resizing, thumbnail functionality… Stuff like that can be done in 10 minutes without a framework (just the code, not all the styling and fine-tunning). Yes it saves time, but i believe that if you are a beginner and relying only on frameworks you aren’t doing good for yourself.

But i think that Bebel hit the point with this:


Long story short: learn by doing, but don’t get stuck with available WordPress frameworks out there. Know your own needs and build something that fits you, if necessary.
I agree with you, i was maybe too negative about frameworks in my last post, but that’s because i wanted to warn kegler68 that he doesn’t get stuck with them.

PHP explode.

<?php //For example our title is: "WordPress Post With Long Title" 

$new_title = explode ( " ", the_title() );
echo $new_title[0]; // WordPress
echo $new_title[1]; // Post
echo $new_title[2]; // With
// and so on....

//Or if you want to echo first, lets say, 10 words, you can do it like this withouth writing 10 lines of code

for ($i = 1; $i <= 10; $i++) {
echo $new_title[$i]; 
}
?>

No no and no, if you want to really know something avoid frameworks!

I will give you an example. If you don’t want to learn e.g. PHP and just try to use frameworks that’s the same like trying to win in a 100m sprint on olympics without any training – you will start running but sooner or later you will face a mega fail!

And BTW the name says it all – FRAMEwork, it’s putting you into certain frame, you are limited and you can’t see beyond that frame.

Starting with the basics like HTML / CSS , then advancing to Javascript and/or PHP and/or whatever / is the harder way and in this case the right way. By jumping straight into frameworks you can’t see beyond them and you are stuck with them, but if you have a strong base in HTML / CSS / PHP / Whatever /, than advacing to new techonologies and trends will be much easier, you don’t have to rely on other frameworks and you might eventually write your own framework for the thing you are doing which is great!

Yeah that’s an issue, but i don’t think that it’s something too big.

Like other guys mentioned you can easily scroll, or if you don’t have a mouse you can use arrow keys on keyboard. One more reason why that isn’t too important is also because you can access all categories by going to files->browse categories.

The thing you are looking for is very specific so i doubt that you will find a theme with such features.

I would suggest you to buy a theme that you like and than hire a freelancer who will implement such features in your theme. Something like that could probably be achieved using WordPress custom posts and custom taxonomies.

Back in late November 2010, when i decided to try my luck at ThemeForest, i thought that i can do everything alone. But after 1 rejected theme and few failed attempts i realized that i simply can’t design! Coding has always been “my thing”.

Then i decided to team up with a designer. I found one great designer in January 2011, he designed one cool theme, i coded it and here we are, we finished the theme!! I am currently finishing theme documentation and we should submit our theme tonight or tomorrow! I think that it turned out really nice, i am so excited :)) !
