So Jason Schuller is a pretty well-known WordPress theme designer/developer. I’ve always thought he was one of the most talented in the WordPress space, so was kinda bummed when I heard he was losing interest in WordPress, selling Press75, and working on his own standalone apps…although I understood the reasoning behind it.
Well now, he’s back making niche admin themes that “scale back” WordPress according to the type of theme/website.
I have to admit, I’m a bit undecided on this. Comments in the WP Tavern seem rather mixed. While I love the innovation and thought behind it, it’s hard to tell whether it’ll catch on or not.
People know WordPress, and while Jason’s admin experience would be more paired down, it may feel unusual and limiting to an experienced WordPress user. On the other hand, a brand new user may find it easier to catch on to.
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
