WP-Forge v5.0.2 – Beta testers wanted

This morning I finally had some time to sit down and update WP-Forge to the latest version of Foundation 5, currently 5.0.2 – From my perspective, everything seems to be working properly and shes looking pretty darn spiffy if you ask me!

One thing I want to do is have anyone who is interested test the theme before I actually make it available for download via Github. Keep in mind that this is not the production version. If you want to use it on an actual web site, well, you do so at your own risk and I cannot guarantee she will work right out of the box.

This is the first portion of the WP-Forge beta. The second version, which I am currently working on now, will make use of the Theme Customizer. Some of the options I hope to make available via the Customize section are:

  • Upload logo
  • show full posts or excerpts
  • set the length of excerpts
  • show post thumbnails
  • set alignment of thumbnails
  • change link colors
  • change background color and or use a background image
  • change the text in the footer area

This is not a comprehensive list though, some things may be added, some may be removed. It all depends on how well this little idea of mine goes.

So if you are interested in testing WP-Forge mixed with Foundation 5.0.2, please shoot me an email or let me know in the comments and I will gladly email you a copy. If you run into any issues, please let me know so I can get them corrected. Thanks and enjoy!

  1. Hi thomas, i am workung on my yoga site with foundatuon5 and wont to use wordpress as cms. It is great opportunity for me to be a tester. I linke the framework. My website is ashtangaworld.net and pkease let me know when we can start.
    Best wishes, natasa

  2. Hi, I am planning to use it in one of my upcoming project, so would like to betatest the same if possible.

    Can you send me the details.


  3. Hi Thomas, I’d love to test a copy. You’ve done great work so far and I’ve been looking for a good framework that fuses Foundation 5 & WP. Keep up the good work!

  4. I would like to be a beta tester. I am currently working on a couple of projects using foundation 5 and wordpress, and would be a godsend if I can be involved in the testing!

  5. Just as a quick note to everyone, the response to beta testing has been tremendous. I didn’t think that I would get the amount of requests that I did. I would like to thank all of you who did request to be beta testers. I have gotten some really good feedback and fixed some issues with WP-Forge that I didn’t even know existed. Thanks to everyone.

    I hope, and this is a big hope, to have v5.0.2, with the custom Theme Customizer, available for download to all by Christmas. Keep your fingers crossed and hope that I can get her out of the garage by then…lol
