In case you are wondering what a framework is let me explain. Developers who code themes for WordPress would know that some themes have some common code at heart. There is some code that is basic to many different themes and thus is repeated when coding new themes.

A WordPress framework comes with this basic code already written. Then you can run this framework as the base for your new themes. The new themes that run on this basic framework are called child themes.

Template Monster currently hosts more than 300 child themes for the Cherry Framework.


Blends in within the dashboard

The Cherry Framework blends seamlessly with the entire WordPress dashboard. A user who logs in can have one personal dashboard experience. It will look like a typical WordPress admin panel but with a new category headed “Cherry Options”. This new category is well designed and brings a better overview on WordPress themes, Framework updates, import/export and template customization options, support and documentation.

The image below shows the screenshot of how this Cherry Framework will sit with the WordPress dashboard.
