Flat Portal: Client area child theme of Twenty Thirteen
I would like your opinions on this please:This is a theme I’ve been developing for going on 2 years now in my spare time:
Flat Portal is a theme I’ve developed as a child theme of Twenty Thirteen to utilise the modern features of WordPress as a publishing platform. It also uses Twitter Bootstrap 2.3.2 for layout and responsiveness, and developers can take advantage of the framework.
The added concept behind this was to create a private member website with optional public areas that uses WordPress as a content management system by utilising the page template system and core functions of WordPress.
Works well and tested with BuddyPress (1.9 latest) and BBPress (2.5.1 latest).
Using WordPress you can avoid subscription costs for a simple private portal solution and have unlimited users.
WordPress is very easy to use and can be extended and modified to whatever you need with free and premium plugins.
This theme includes Twitter Bootstrap 2.3.2 css and jquery and glyphs.
Go to the Twitter Framework site to see what other components and jquery scripts you can use with this theme.
Currently it’s on offer for $25 in my online shop at
but I have no idea how to promote it and I am thinking of releasing it as a free download like my Flat Portfolio theme.
I would like to know if anyone would like me to release it as a free download (with no extra support if free and no more major updates- tweaks or minor improvements as needed) because I don’t have time for this anymore (pursuing an Illustration career- not so much web development now) on my own and I would like to see it used in the community as I thought it was a useful thing and I’ve found it useful myself. If I get enough interest (10 plus people replying here) I would love to offer it as a free resource which hopefully would be developed and shared. Maybe someone would be interested in this?
I’m posting it here because I use BuddyPress and BBPress and this theme is designed for these plugins.
