There are a lot of different frameworks out there and most are responsive. Of the frameworks we’ve tried and tested Foundation looks to be one of the best supported and looks to be around for the long haul. If you’re a WordPress guy (or girl) as we are, you want to be up on the latest trends, and if you can use a great framework like Foundation, you’re going to want to jump on the opportunity.
Which is why we’ve highlighted a couple of themes already built using Foundation so that you get to use something familiar (WordPress) with your shiny new framework. Even if you don’t use the theme on an actual site, it is incredibly valuable to get in there and see how these themes are made, for your own work.
If you are not familiar with Foundation, here are the basics in their words:
It has a 12-columns, nested, responsive grid that provides a lot of its design and style, there are other typical elements and objects. Navigation, tabs, buttons, typography, forms, and even more are pre-defined with basic designs that will help you build quicker without having at first fretting about custom made CSS.
If you would like find out more about why I as well as others really like Foundation framework, take a look at ALA by Jonathan Smiley and wpmu by Sarah Gooding articles – it has lots of useful things that will help you personalize Foundation for your task needs.
