An "original creation" WP theme not accepting plug-ins (2 posts)

    Hey folks. I have a question that may be very fundamental, but with my limited knowledge of Word Press (enough to be dangerous) I may be looking at this the wrong way. We have a multi-site project that includes two themes that have to be "tweaked" by the developer for almost each plug-in we want to use. This adds time and money and is somewhat frustrating. Asked about going to another theme that hasn't been "customized" but wanting the same look as the current theme, I asked what WP theme was used to adapt ours? The answer was the theme design was an original creation.

    My question (and it may not be worded correctly) is why would you custom build what is already an open source platform? Thank you for your thoughts.

  2. I'm not sure what the crux of the question is ... You custom build themes to meet the needs of your client all the time. If their needs change, you end up rebuilding all the time, but that happens if you don't plan well for eventualities and posibilities.

    The more you code into your theme, the less flexible it may become.
