Why you should use a WordPress Theme Framework
A theme framework takes a lot of the initial code out of WordPress. There is still plenty of room to add visual elements (using HTML and/or CSS) into the design, but theme frameworks are designed to guide a user through the design and function of the website.
Theme frameworks DO NOT create the website for you. Rather, theme frameworks guide you through the process in a way that eliminates major CSS and PHP coding.
A child theme is a theme that has been created using one of the frameworks. You see a lot of this with theme frameworks, where the initial framework is basic enough that it is easy to create a different visual style or technical function around the framework.
There are also tons of child themes out there. Some WordPress themes even support built-in one-click child themes, to make it easier than ever to build a website with the colors and font sizes you want.
