    I just made this today for a WordPress 3.0 application I’m making. It’s a full object oriented custom post types and taxonomies theme that has more functionality than the average premium theme pre-3.0.

    Why WordPress Themes are Derivative of WordPress (via Mark on WordPress) 

    I feel like this sort of thing should be a given, but hey, I guess not everyone see’s things the same way. To me, it’s a no-brainer, and shouldn’t even have been necessary to clarify so thoroughly.

    Anyways, I’m going back to building my custom post types, and 3.0 app site and writing my OOP tutorial on 😛
