I've been working as a freelancer for a long time. This is excellent progress to accumulate experience and it helps me a lot in being familiar with code of premium and free themes, frameworks and plugins. I've been learning and customizing them. Thanks for that knowledge, my team FitWP has built a theme framework and started making themes based on it. Our goal is creating powerful themes (if you are a developer who uses Genesis or Hybrid, my favorites frameworks, you'll know what I mean) but still friendly, easy to use and customize. Whisper - a corporation WordPress theme - is our first theme in that direction.
Whisper is a corporation, business WordPress theme, which focus on ability to customize and user friendliness. In today background, where most themes have similar appearance and features, we focus on easy-to-use at most. All theme options are built minimally, but still keep it as flexible as needed. Theme uses a new theme options framework, not popular theme frameworks like Options Framework, NHP, SMOF or Options Tree because they're quite complicated and don't satisfy our needs of customizing and appearance.
Besides that, Whisper is carefully built with highest SEO efficiency. We know that SEO plugins like WordPress SEO By Yoast, AIO SEO Pack bring a great SEO ability to any WordPress theme. But there're something that these plugins can't touch, like HTML markup - how to use HTML5 tags semantically, how to exactly declare microdata or micro formats (used for rich snippets). This is what Whisper supports and is its difference.
Whisper has some advantages which a good theme should have like: clean structure (including code), modular CSS with LESS, using theme wrapper to optimize templates, ... You can see full feature list of Whisper here.
Please let us know what you think about Whisper in the comment below. We're open and will improve the theme constantly!
And don't forget to support Whisper by purchasing it at ThemeForest. Thank you very much.
