intro

Anyone following me on Twitter will already know this by now, but our big project, PliablePress, went live around 24 hours ago!

themeops1

A “Theme Options” page is designed to give control over how a theme looks and functions, solely by setting options in the WordPress dashboard. The user then has no need to edit the core theme files.
