I’ve recently got to know Eric Hamm and to be honest; I’m pretty impressed with the guy.
Eric is the developer of a couple of my favourite WordPress plugins and more relevant to this post… he’s the developer of the Catalyst theme framework for WordPress.
The Catalyst theme framework is one of the WordPress frameworks that has stood the test of time.
It has a vibrant and passionate community and it’s supported by an increasing number of Catalyst skins and child themes.
To get a quick feel for Catalyst take a look at this ultra short video… it’s just over a minute long.
With Catalyst you get much more than a simple WordPress “Skin”. We’re talking a complete Web Design Toolkit, ready for action. From basic blogs to full blown CMS sites, Catalyst provides all you need to take your online venture to the next level!

Catalyst theme framework – why Catalyst is different
Like I said, Catalyst is one of the theme frameworks which has stood the test of time, but what sets it apart, what makes it stand out from the crowd, what makes it different to the other premier theme frameworks out there?
This is what Eric has to say:
That’s the whistle stop overview of what makes Catalyst different, and just to remind, here are the main points:
- Clean efficient code
- Built-in SEO
- Lots of options to control the basics
Dynamik options (Dynamik child theme)
- Acts as design controls for Catalyst
- 800 options grouped for easy access
- Covers fonts, backgrounds, borders, padding etc.
Advanced options (control of framework and structure of site)
- Can create an unlimited number of custom layouts
- Widget areas and hook boxes
- No coding required
And you also get access to the best support possible from the Catalyst community and in the support forum!
