This week WordPress theme company Pagelines announced PlatformPro, their new theme framework. Platform includes a drag-and-drop interfacing for laying out page templates, support for BuddyPress and bbPress, and is available for $95.
Andrew Powers, founder of Pagelines, explains their goals for the project:
When we started work on Platform, the goal was to “take the code out of web design,” and help you build a custom site faster & easier than ever before.
To accomplish this we built a completely new type of drag & drop website control—the Section API— as well as draggable layout controls, draggable post-types (feature slides, boxes, banners) and tons of comprehensive page-by-page options.
