WordPress Themes are a Hard Habit to Break

I never knew Word­Press had soaked into my soul so deeply. Get­ting a lit­tle bored with the same old Word­Press themes, I thought I’d play with Twit­ter Boot­strap some. (This post has lit­tle to do with PHP or Word­Press, just as a disclaimer)

Here I am sev­eral weeks later, and I’m putting the fin­ish­ing touches on an actual “How-to” book I wrote and am pub­lish­ing for how to build unique Twit­ter Boot­strap Themes, quickly and eas­ily. That’s the work­ing title, as well. Need­less to say, I’m now a big fan of Bootstrap.

I feel like a WP junkie though, because I really want to work in the com­fort of this WP Admin page, and keep find­ing myself want­ing to add that wp-admin after my Boot­strap site. And lord, am I miss­ing the plu­g­ins. But the results are worth it. The Boot­strap site is more of a sta­tic site, but with password-protected resources and a sales squeeze. I would def­i­nitely not go that route for blog­ging. You learn to really appre­ci­ate CMSs after hand-coding a fairly com­plex site. And I’m still think­ing of redi­rect­ing my “Buy It” but­tons to another web­site of mine on Word­Press so I can use the Easy Dig­i­tal Down­loads plu­gin. Pip­pin Williamson spoke at my local Word­Camp, and his work looks stel­lar. Almost worth writ­ing a book or song, just so you can try out EDD.

So, keep your eyes peeled for A new Twit­ter Boot­strap book to be climb­ing the NYT best-seller list very soon. And do your­self a favor, and try out Boot­strap if you’re into designing/developing. It’ll give you a break from all the PHP, since you’re tin­ker­ing with HTML, CSS and JS with Boot­strap. And some cool third-party sup­port as well.

It also makes me won­der: if I could write  (what I think is) a very com­pre­hen­sive piece of ref­er­ence mate­r­ial for a frame­work I had lit­tle expe­ri­ence with in a cou­ple of weeks, what is the holdup with the CREATORS of the The­sis theme still hav­ing not released any­thing com­pre­hen­sive or help­ful to a large degree? That’s a thinker.
