this is the single most useful thing i have seen in wordpress for years. Having spent too many hours searching through different themes and plugins finally somebody is ahead of the game. Thank you Daryl.
oh, and, does it allow for creating multiple page templates to use within the theme?
This should basically be standard in WordPress.
I hope the WP development community gets behind this effort. Creating a custom theme from scratch is a huge effort and not for the newbie. If you want wordpress to become the CMS standard, then you need to attract people without php skills and tools like this make it possible.
I will be following this very closely. Go Daryl!!
I just paid $175 for a developer’s license to a WYSIWYG theme called Headway. Maybe I should have tried the Elastic open source theme first.
I applaud Daryl Koopersmith for starting this project while being a student. I’m looking forward to seeing how far the community will take it.
