Ow ow ow, big news today. I'm releasing something I've been working on for quite a few days and that has turned into something even cooler than what I was planning at first. Introducing …
WordPress Theme Toolkit : Helps theme authors adding an admin menu. Helps theme users customise their blogs.
WordPress Theme Toolkit is for theme creators : it allows adding an admin menu into a theme as easily as editing 3 lines in a file. Most users can't tell the difference between an HTML tag and a PHP tag, so why not give them control over their blog layout through a clean admin menu ? Days of shipping theme files that the end user will have to edit to customize things are over !
As an example of what WordPress Theme Toolkit makes possible, I'm releasing another stuff : Minimalissimplistic, a minimalist elastic theme that comes with interesting additionnal features you will manage from an admin menu. The point here is not to show how cool these features are, but how simple it has been to implement them into the theme thanks to the Toolkit. Simple… as editing 3 lines.
I've intensively tested WordPress Theme Toolkit in every situation I could think of, and as far as I can tell, it's working like a charm. On a side note, I'll add that this project has been my training grounds for learning PHP classes, and the result is very satisfying :)
So, now that I think that it's working fine, I want feedback ! Is it cool ? Useful ? Easy to use ? Theme authors … your turn now, make something with it !
