Still no theme engine

    There are different discussions about this topic in the Internet, but there does not seem to exist a standard solution that can be implemented without any hacks.

    The way templates in WordPress are built and have been built since the beginning does not meet today's requirements of WordPress as a CMS anymore. I usually end up with a lot of procedural code in the more complex theme template files. One approach is to try to export as much functionality as possible into a separate class file.

    I think WordPress needs to grow up here. One of the biggest drawbacks if you develop themes regularly.

    This approach is one important for the future because WordPress isn't anymore a simple CMS for quite a long time.

    As time has passed we could enjoy more features, WordPress possibly need to improve in some aspects, but I think for the usual author of this CMS does not need many changes.

    I understand that professionals need more facilities to achieve its purposes and because of this we are here proposing alternatives.

  4. I think that's the point of WordPress - to be easier and more convenient. For a more complex design or other suggestions, you can customize everything byself.

    Interesting - my point is that "easy and convenient" get's lost when you look at most template files.
