WordPress theme frameworks are nothing new, and Solostream recognizes that this is only the first step in the development of a serious theme framework. Michael Pollock, the marketing and product development lead at Solostream, said:
…[T]his is our first attempt at a theme framework, and we’re clear we have some work to do before WP-DaVinci can be considered a full-fledged theme framework. In the meantime, we want to get it into the hands of folks like you, and get some feedback on it as we continue to develop it over the coming months.
This new framework touts a number of features, including:
- Multiple page layouts
- Featured content options
- Banner ad management
- Four built-in styles
WP-DaVinci is available starting at $79, though developers will likely be interested in the $279 price for unlimited support.
Now might not be a bad time to grab a theme from Solostream. They are running a holiday 3-for-1 deal. Buy any three themes for 67% off the total price when you use the discount code “happyholidays”.
We do, of course, have a copy of WP-DaVinci to give away in the comments. Would you give WP-DaVinci a shot? What do you think can be done in the theme framework space now? We’ll give the theme to the most engaging commenter.
