Whiteboard Framework for WordPress


Powerful, clean, and well-noted code for efficient WordPress theme development

Whiteboard Framework has been helping WordPress developers cut back on their development time and improve their WordPress powered websites since 2008.

Whiteboard framework for WordPress was developed to speed up the development of WordPress themes. Whiteboard does so by eliminating the time spent on code common to all WordPress themes and includes non-intrusive code that improves the overall WordPress theme in many ways - including SEO, speed, usability, mobile support, and multi-lingual support.

Whiteboard is not like most other WordPress Frameworks out there. While most other WordPress Frameworks include a mess of styles, functions, and content areas that have to be cleaned out for nearly every project, Whiteboard remains a true WordPress Framework. Whiteboard includes only the core WordPress structure and does not get fancy with unnecessary functions. While Whiteboard does include Less Framework and a minimal theme, these can be easily removed with the exclusion of a line of HTML each.

Whiteboard is a true WordPress Framework.

PUBLIC SCHOOL, @go2publicschool

I feel like I've looked at every framework, free and premium, & I just can't get over how straight forward and simple Whiteboard is. ... everything you need & nothing you don't; an incredible foundation.
