What is a WordPress SuperTheme? BoldGrid Crio

Featured, Release Notes

When a web developer is starting a new website, whether it’s for a client or for a new business of their own, the first thing they’ll do is start shopping for a WordPress Theme that fits their vision. But what if there was a theme that could fit any vision? That’s a SuperTheme.


Crio is Portuguese for “I Create.”

Crio represents a new era for WordPress Themes. When we originally created the BoldGrid Theme Framework, our aim was to make it easier for developers to create their own themes. With Crio, we’ve updated the framework to make it easy for anyone to create their own theme.
