[resolved] Deciding upon a premium wordpress framework (3 posts)

    I do hope I am in the right spot for this topic.

    I am a wordpress newbie with a little experience in wordpress and creating my own, from scratch, themes. I've created three very basic & simple ones. I'm an aspiring web designer with intermediate CSS & HTML (starting to work with bits of CSS3 & HTML5 now) with a thirst to learn more about wordpress and the websites I can make. I don't like working with PHP and am not comfortable 100% with the loop and other small things with wordpress (but I'm getting there).

    I was hoping that I could get some advice from members as to what a good premium framework I should start off with. I have looked around google and other sites for premium frameworks and came across the HeadWay Framework. I do like it and have watched some of the videos on how to work it, it impresses me and I seem to be drawn to it. However there are many more out there and I was hoping for some advice as to which framework is suited for a beginner.

    I'm willing to pay for a framework that will not give me troubles, has an easy to follow guide, instructions, videos and are not confusing. I was thinking Thematic but I'm not sure.

    I would appreciate some input as to what an intermediate web designer and newbie wordpress theme designer should choose as a safe, secure, easy to use but easy to customize framework.

    Thanks!

    See this post on Weaver II

    I don't know that any framework is "suited for a beginner" but that depends on your ability to learn and code php, html and css. I'm in the same position as you -- know HTML and CSS fairly well, but pretty new to WP. PHP mostly looks like gobbledygook to me! LOL! It does take some mental reprogramming to alter the notion that one can just go change the HTML code!
