We discontinue development of the required+ Foundation theme – here is why.×

Love theme options? Sorry, we don’t!

Personally we think that theme options are a big overkill and should be used only under certain conditions. Therefore we use the Theme Customizer built into WordPress where necessary and the rest is up to you.


Further explanation

Have a look at the Theme Options Gallery to see why they aren’t always a win for you or your users.

When we first started working on the required+ Foundation project we were tempted to add theme options for everything. We had numerous options to configure the theme in mind. Our goal was to create the most flexible theme that is out there, with tons of plugins, shortcodes and what not. As we built all this and used it with clients right from the start, we realized that, as almost always, less is more. We removed all the features that never got used in a client site until we had a feature set that made us faster in creating stunning responsive themes and taking the pain out of configuring them.

We decided that instead of bloating the theme with features, we rather release a couple of blog posts from time to time with code we used in real life to show you how easy it actually is to change stuff in required+ Foundation.
