TechCrunch has just announced the release of a new WordPress Theme Framework called PageLines that focuses on providing a drag and drop, professional CMS theme framework. I’ve been hoping for a theme framework that targets CMS driven WordPress websites work for quite some time now, and this one seem’s to be very promising.
Websites Using PageLines
