Themify Flow: WordPress Theme Builder

Jun 11, 2015 566 Comments

I haven’t updated this blog for the longest time. Today I have something very exciting to present. I’ve been working very hard with the Themify team on a new theme builder for WordPress called Themify Flow. It is a lightweight, fast performance framework, which allows you to build responsive themes. Everything is done within WordPress with an intuitive drag & drop interface. No PHP or CSS coding required. Watch the video below to see how it works. It is a free open source project. Give it a shot!

The posts are auto loaded and stacked as soon you hit the bottom of the page. It is also responsive. Check the demo and resize your browser window to see how the layout adapts.
