WP Engineer, the folks behind the steady stream of WordPress tips at their blog, have stepped up and released their own WordPress theme framework called Xtreme One. They of course recognize the prevalence of theme frameworks in the marketplace right now. In response to “why another WordPress framework?” Michael Preuss said:
My idea of a WordPress Framework starts where most of the others are given up – to give the user the complete control of his layout. That’s why Xtreme One is worldwide the only WordPress Framework, which is able to create fixed, fluid and flexible layouts. Create in a matter of minutes your own desired website layout with just a few mouse clicks!
As far as features go, Xtreme brings a number of them:
- 6 layout variations in the content area
- Teasers and footers create 28 layout combinations with up to five coumns
- 3 comment form layouts, fully customizable
- Stylesheet compression
- Multisite and localization ready, both in English and German
It’s available for $69.95 from their new site. Check out the video demo of Xtreme One after the jump.
