A drag and drop editor for wordpress themes: Headway

It's pricy, theres no demo, and no refund, but if this works it'd be killer:

http://headwaythemes.com/

Thoughts?

It gives you option to change almost every little point in your wp theme. It has good selection of fonts and color schemes. If you don't want to digg much into the frameworks and code then I guess it's worth a purchase.

One of the most known ones of its kind and it ranks high for flexibility.
I doubt anybody agrees with this statement but here goes...in my opinion frameworks are still more suited for learning (working with hooks, etc.), if that makes sense, for most instances a good theme can be found without using frameworks.

Downsides:
  • CSS goes inside the db. One cannot version-control it
  • No existing templates. The videos show super-basic results
  • Forum is not open, you cannot see the docs till you pay
  • No refunds. Period
Still, if it works as well as Xara, for dynamic sites, it's quite an achievement.
Better than thesis and genesis.

Some comments in this review are really negative. People say 3.0 is a flop and want their money back.
