For those who develop for CiviCRM on WordPress, what theme frameworks do not work with CiviCRM, what theme frameworks do work without problems, and which seem best for displaying CiviCRM content?
I've looked at Genesis, and Gantry.
CiviCRM Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for administrators and users of the CiviCRM Constituent Relationship Management software. It only takes a minute to sign up.Sign up to join this community
Watch out for themes or plugins that use Backbone.JS calls. They seem to be causing some issues right now. One such theme is Salient.
The JetPack plugin also seems to be suffering from the same problems. (Search the StackExchange for backbone and you'll see a few different threads.)
The Virtue theme has styling issues.
Twenty Fourteen provides good displays.
Avada, Divi, X theme, Genesis, Virtue and in general most well-developed WordPress themes work fine. I think BeTheme is OK too.
The Slider Revolution plugin causes JS problems and can be disabled and replaced easily. A lot of commercial themes bundle this plugin.
You can still expect to do some work making CiviCRM pages display nicely because CiviCRM uses it's own CSS and classes - this can be disabled using CiviCRM Admin Utils in WordPress. This is not a WordPress theme problem, that's a CiviCRM design decision which has been discussed at length in Github.
