Custom vs. Customization Defined????? (4 posts)

    So, hopefully I won't confuse anybody here, but a questions have been tumbling around in my head for the last week.

    Imagine a client asks for a "Custom WordPress Template". Possibly a little vague. In the end, what he recieves is a child theme of TwentyTen.

    Would you consider this custom? Might it be considered custom? When I think "custom" I think taking a Photoshop designing and coding it into a WordPress Template.

    However, these days with the power of child themes and the 1000's of themes that can be fully customized maybe definitions have blurred.

    Sorry if I am confusing everyone here. Possibly I am over contemplating this : ) .

    Well you know it's custom, but do you think the client will think a child theme is custom.

    Creating a child theme could easily be view as customizing (a verb) a custom (an adjective) theme.

    But if the client doesn't think so then copy the TwentyTen theme folder to a new folder and customize that.

    In that regard you would consider all WordPress Themes frameworks. And a "Custom WordPress Website" would be a customization of those frameworks (possibly redesigned graphics etc.).

    ...could be defined as a customization of those frameworks. I guess semantics.
