I know I will have nothing on any of the other more popular frameworks out there, and I do owe some credit to the others for help they have given me along the way. The others are excellent as I have used them myself, but found that the code got harder as they upgraded more... and more PHP was needed instead of just using CSS, and images to create a Wordpress theme. If you are looking for the perfect all out with many options framework please check out some of the others. If you want to use CSS and XHTML or even easily convert a static HTML / XHTML site to Wordpress.. Then check out my framework. I am designing it to be as basic as possible, and very functional as well as being SEO friendly. This Blank-Wordpress framework is meant to cater to the more "simple" users looking to obtain a blank slate and style using CSS, while not having to worry much at all about any PHP code. Everything under the hood will be set to work, and updated to ensure it works with all future Wordpress releases. For this you will need to know some basic CSS to get going, but I will provide support and examples to get you started. Framework includes an archives page template, and some other basic items. Sidebar is hard-coded but can easily be changed to a 2 sidebar right, left, centered content... or any way you wish. Feel free to ask questions as they come up.
