Museum Core is coming

Over 2 years of thought, research and development has gone into our new theme framework (and free WordPress theme) Museum Core. It’s currently available on GitHub and will be available to download, for free, in the WordPress.org repository soon. Core supports post formats, custom backgrounds and header images, custom menus, has an all new theme options panel with customizable font options and link colors. There are a lot more features under the hood and this will soon be the framework for all of our themes. It will also mark the beginning of a new model for selling themes and support. Core will always be free, all our existing and future themes will be child themes of Core, and we will put an immediate priority on porting our existing Blogger templates to be WordPress child themes of Core. Once that’s done, we will introduce a new membership model in which you pay a monthly membership fee and have access to all our themes. That will be over 25 themes with more to come for one monthly subscription. We’ll have more information as we get closer to the change. We’ll still continue to support and sell themes individually but the membership will be a much better deal.

AP Blueprint is a theme framework we initially built a year ago.  Since then, we’ve used it as the foundation of all of our themes, be it for client work or Museum Themes.  But after a while, we started to add things to themes that weren’t in the framework.  Over time, this got to be more and more common, so we decided it was time to update the framework.

The most recent version includes @Twitter hovercards, better styling for post comments, a few additions to the sharing links under posts, the updated Tweet This link from Twitter and the new Tweet This button, widgetized footer, WordPress 3.0 menus, and a theme options page for social networking links, Twitter controls, and sidebar controls.

Interested in contributing to, or building on top of AP-Blueprint?  We’ve also set up a repository on GitHub.
