Feature-rich WordPress theme frameworks are reckoned as dream-come-true to many WP enthusiasts. Strange though it may seem, but beginners demand a lot more control over the layout and design, while advanced users literally want to know whether the platform is flexible enough to add more functionality at any point of the ongoing project.
Popular framework developers claim they already have products on the market to satisfy all the individual needs. In other words, by purchasing one of the popular theme frameworks you get everything you ever wanted and your next project is as limited as is your imagination.
Well, I consider myself as creative person and most of you, probably, feel the same about yourself, so it’s about time to sack our web developers and create some impressive projects all by ourselves – easily, rapidly, without touching a code! But is it really that simple?
Actually, your success is based on the same fundamentals as in any other WordPress project you’ve already started or going to start. There is no such tool that could substitute creativity, experience in web developing and proficiency in WordPress. Only having a combination of these skills can help you to make use of the unlimited theme framework features to create something unique.
