    hi, i might just be being a bit slow today but for the life of me i cannot figure out how this thing works!

    i've installed the plugin. i'm using a child theme of thematic. i've copied options.php + the inc folder + the code snippet from functions.php in the options_framework_theme folder over to my thematic child theme's directory. i've changed the get_theme_directory_uri to get_stylesheet_directory_uri and i can see the options panel in the dashboard under appearances but for the life of me i can't figure out how to actually make it work!

    hack away isn't the most helpful instruction unfortunately...

    i'm pretty handy with wordpress and not too bad with code so i know what i'm looking at and i'm not scared of making changes but how do you make it work? how do you make the options panel options take effect?

    sorry for beng dense, it's probably something really really obvious but i just can't figure it. big thanks in advance :D

    The Options Framework only helps you set up an options panel. It doesn't actually make any of your options work- that's something that is particular to each individual theme and something you'd need to code out yourself.

    If you want a demo for Thematic, I actually built an implementation for some simple theme options: https://github.com/devinsays/thematic-options

    You can also purchase Options Kit for the plugin, that shows how you might do various integrations: http://wptheming.com/options-kit/
