Fairly new to this so be kind!
Want to create some wordpress sites but dont really want to use preset themes but create my own. Should I be using a framework? Have downloaded and used genesis for one site but it just seems to make it more complex than doing it from scratch?
is the done thing to always use a framework? what do others do?
also i have a need for a mutisite installation ( as it uses marketpress ). should I use a frame work for that if so why/why not? thanks!
