Hello everyone. I am a Thesis user with some questions to see if I should move over to Thematic.
I have an existing site on Thesis, and I'm concerned about how it's going to let me integrate Buddypress, but that's not my main question.
My big question is if I should instead of Thesis switch to Thematic for the site I am about to start this week. My main concern is that I have a framework/theme that keeps up with the myriad of new features in WP 3.0 as soon as possible. In addition to that, I want to know that I can add Buddypress at some point in the reasonably near future and not be held back by Thesis. Lots of people at Thesis are asking about BP integration, but no official answers are forthcoming. And I wonder if Thesis will right away allow the use of the new WP 3.0 menus, for example, since they have their own set up.
So, I've been looking around at all the various frameworks. I had thought that Thesis was the greatest thing for WP designers (and I do like it), but since looking around I'm seeing that this may not be the case. I am trying to find that helps with what I said above, and is not so completely hard to learn after using Thesis. I'm an intermediate level technical person, including in CSS and Thesis hooks. I'm also going to work on this new project this week with my son, who is new at most of WP stuff, but I want him to get trained on something we'll stick with.
So, would someone be so kind as to give me some advice regarding all this? I hear this is a very good community, btw.
