9 Useful Websites for Thematic Child Theme Development

You’ve may have noticed a design change here at RepeatGeek, if you’ve visited before. I have been exploring different WordPress frameworks to build my website around and I finally decided upon Thematic.

My decision to go with Thematic was that it is extensible, stable, SEO optimized, easily configurable and most importantly FREE.
