When Startup Framework was released back at the end of 2013, we know it’s gonna be a hit. With drag and drop feature and comes with blocks of predefined layouts, it’s probably the first and last template you’re going to buy. The only problem with it?
It’s not built for WordPress.
When Designmodo announced their release of Startup Framework for WordPress a few days ago, we know lots of people will be very happy.
There’s no doubt that WordPress is the most popular Content Management System (CMS). A study by Pingdom in 2013 shows that it currently powered 52% of world’s top 100 blogs, increased from 48% a year before. Furthermore, there are over 65 millions sites powered by WordPress (both WordPress.com and WordPress self-hosted) and still counting.
Like the HTML version, Startup Framework for WordPress is aimed to help both developers and non-developers to build websites in an easy and intuitive way. Want to build a website but have absolutely no HTML, PHP and CSS knowledge? No problem at all.
In additions to drag and drop feature, the Startup Framework for WordPress comes with these features:.
- Comes with pre-design 100 blocks.
- Mobile ready
- Unlimited design options
- Easily add and style content using the inline visual editor
- Multipurpose use. Startup Framework for WordPress is great for blog, gallery, portfolio, landing page and etc.
The Startup Framework for WordPress will definitely change the way you build a website using WordPress. The live preview feature helps you to preview all the changes you make from the front-end of your site. No need to refresh your browser. Once you’ve satisfied with all the changes you make, simply hit Save button and you’ll see the changes on your live site.
Try before you buy
We know it’s very frustrating when you find a great product, purchase it and only later to find out that it’s not for you.
If you’d like to give it a try prior to purchasing it, check out Request Demo page and insert your email to request a demo. Within a few seconds, you’ll receive a unique and personalized URL for the demo site where you will get access to all features of the framework.
Designing your site with this framework is very easy. Once you’ve activated the plugin, you can start designing your site from SFW Page menu on your dashboard. Using the built-in visual editor, all you need to do is to choose the right block for every element of your site such as headers, contents, pricing tables, projects, contacts, crew and footers. There are over 100 blocks in total so you’ll definitely find one that works best for every element of your site.

Unlike other drag and drop frameworks out there which are very confusing to setup and use, Startup Framework for WordPress is not. It’s dead simple to use. Furthermore, it does not add bloat to your site with unnecessary shortcodes and theme options like other frameworks would normally do.
Get a Copy Now
If you’re satisfied with what what you’ve seen so far, why don’t get a copy for yourself? It’s definitely worth every penny and is going to save lots of times developing your site. Currently, there are 3 different plans. The first plan is priced at $149 and is good if you want to use it on only one site. If you want to use it to up to 3 different sites, it will cost you only $249. That’s about 44% off if you buy 3 separate single-site licenses. If you want to use it to up to 5 sites, buying the 5-site license can save you even more money.
All plans come with 1 year of updates and support. The framework was just released for few days and as its gets matured, we may see more features will be added to it in the future.
While $149 seems pricey, it’s not. Really. We’ve tested few other popular drag and drop framework before and there’s great learning curve for most of them. Sometimes, it will take hours just to setup one single custom page. Furthermore, with over 100 pre-design blocks, you can eliminate the need to hire a web designer which definitely will cost you more than what you will have to pay for this framework.
