== Description ==

This is the adapted theme version of the Options Framework plugin.

The Options Framework Plugin makes it easy to include an options panel in any WordPress theme.  It was built so that theme developers can concentrate on making the actual theme rather than spending a ton of time on creating an options panel from scratch.  It's free to use in both commercial and personal projects, just like WordPress itself.

Please visit []( for a full description of how to define and use the theme options.

The code is heavily based on the [WooFramework]( and their option styles.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= How do I build options for my own theme? =

Just drag the admin folder of this theme, options.php and functions.php into the theme of your choice.

Options.php is a blueprint for how to work with options.  It includes an example of every option available in the panel and sample output in the theme.

You can also watch the video screencast I have at [](

= What options are available to use? =

* text
* textarea
