Say hello and introduce yourself

Hi guys,

I'm using the Zack child theme to make a very minimalist design for an upcoming album release. I really don't have a clue what I'm doing but I'm making great progress! I may need to askfor help at some point but so far so good ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello! My name is Alfredo, I'm originally from Argentina and living in Chicago area for many years. I'm a bilingual Spanish teacher working in a public elementary school, but usually I spend the rest of my time working with some WordPress project. Looking for some lightweight WP theme, I found Beans, and immediately fell in love with the simplicity, flexibility and speed of this framework. Thank you, Thierry and Beans community! Alfredo

Hey Folks.

Congrats on a great Framework Thierry. I'm loving seeing what Beans can do - hopefully I can spend a bit of time familiarising myself with the hooks and functions and develop a system that will fit for our workflow.

I am primarily a front end developer and designer. We cater for a wide range of clients and layout styles, often doing promo landing pages that are not template based at all - not Beans' strong suit. Hopefully I can work out a way I can include template parts to easily overcome this.

Expect a bunch of dumb questions from my corner as I try and work out a good templating system.

Hi I'm Bima!

Firstly i would like to congratulate you for this great framework, I do mainly graphic design (logos, illustrations & web layouts) and still learning web development. Currently still reading through the beans documentation & posts by the community. I still have a long way to go in learning this platform and i definitely need help from everyone here so here i am saying hello to you all and once again thank you Thierry and all those who are involved in making this beauty of a beast!

Hello, my name is Vin, still learning in building a website, and found beans theme seems to be awesome. Right now I'm building a real estate website, and I think beans theme can help me achive what I want. Sorry for my bad English for it's not my first languange.


Hi All,

I'm James. I'm 27 and I'm a web developer who works from home. I mostly work with wordpress sites and Beans caught my attention.

Looking forward to learning more about it and putting it to good use in future projects.

Hello Everyone,

I'm Tonya Mork. I'm an engineer (software and electrical), mentor, author, and educator. I bring over 30 years of software, architecture, and lead experience as I partner with Thierry and all of you. I teach at Know the Code, where I'll be adding labs and insights for Beans.

I have an interesting story of how I came to WordPress, which you can read on HeroPress or check me out on my personal website.

I'm passionate about craftsmanship, quality, maximizing the user experience, and empowering developers. I really dig frameworks that empower you to rapidly build high quality, amazing products and experiences. Beans ticks those boxes.

I'm thrilled to partner with Thierry and do my part to help grow our community and the blazing fast, innovative Beans framework.

Cheers and Happy Coding, Tonya

Hello Everyone,

I am Elroy Fernandes from goa, India. I am a freelance wordpress developer who works on WordPress.

I enjoy learing new things, travelling.

Since I know Tonya has joined the team I am interested to see who things are going.

Hi everyone,

I'm Tom, and I'm from Edinburgh in the UK. I am just discovering the joy of Beans and am working on learning and moving over to it.

I used to run web design agency about 8 years ago and then gave up to teach singing and focus on marketing but I am slowly coming back to doing websites for my own projects.

I started off with Wordpress and custom themes and then progressed to Genesis and now am loving Beans! I feel like it took me months to get to grips with Genesis but with Beans I was up and running afte after a weekend.

I've just joined Know the Code and am looking forward to re-learning to code properply and expand my skills.

Must say thanks to @Thierry for all his hard work on this amazing project!

Hello Everyone. My name is Alexander. I have currently joined this forum. I am a developer.

I am Marjorie Ray, a freelance WordPress developer from Vermont, USA. My company, Codewryter, specializes in small business coaching, ecommerce, and digital marketing.

I am organizer for a local WordPress Meetup in Brattleboro Vermont. I have used Genesis on many sites, but like to keep learning and have just started with Beans.

Hello everyone (whats the collective name for Beans Theme users... Beansters?).

I have been using WordPress to build websites for the last 5 years, I'm not a developer, nor a designer, more of a facilitator of online space creation. I've been using the Genesis Framework for 3 years and find it strange that I'm excited about Beans!

My work is erring towards helping clients find an authentic online voice and I feel that the Beans Theme Framework will help me achieve that. So I'm glad to be here and look forward to getting my coding feet wet.

Hi All,

My name is Pam Hirsch and I found Beans via a post from Tonya Mork. Who I adore! I've been a die-hard Genesis user/developer for years but have been frustrated with how slow my resulting sites were.

I'm here to learn as much as I can and help out when I can.

Happy Thanksiving to those of you in the U.S.!



Hi everyone,

I'm Adam from the UK and I stumbled across this great framework when doing some research about adpoting Genisis (and, as you can guess from me being here, I chose otherwise).

I'm a hobbyist web designer and I've been using WordPress for about 4 years. Love what I've seen of Beans so far and I'm geeting good results experimenting with the child theme - not the best at php but hopefully that'll change!

Cheers, Adam

Hi all,

I'm Didou from Breda, The Netherlands. I got curious about Beans when Tonya Mork started posting about it on Facebook. I'm one of her students at and have learned a great deal about efficiency because of that. If she's digging it, it must be worth my time, right? I've been a webdeveloper for over 10 years now, created my own multisite CMS some time ago and got into Wordpress three years ago. It didn't take me too long before I went for the Genesis Framework, and now I'd really like to explore the possibilities that Beans offers. Love the on-the-fly compiling of LESS, hopefully SASS in the near future!

Hi, I'm web developer from Indonesia. I have been developed some offline website using php-html-javascript and last year I made some wordpress theme using underscores and understrap. I still not comfortable enough with understrap framework especially for performance issues. Until i found beans and described itself as light and fastest wordpress theme.

I think I would like to put my time to see how powerfull this framework. Please teach me.

Regards, dewaz

Hi there, Jasper here! ๐Ÿ™‚ Full-time front-end developer and UX/UI designer. Freelance for 14 years already and always had a thing for design, typography and colors.

I've been building a ton of websites with Beaver Builder these past 2 years because it was easy money but that seriously dumbed down my will to develop new projects and it made me stay behind on new and exciting developments in the WP world we're all in here. By taking on a big new fresh project I've revamped that spark and now I'm happy to be full-time creating again, instead of just clicking and dragging some nonsense on a page.

In my spare time I really love to travel, ride my mountainbike and watch youtube or twitch. Big fan of watching online gaming, more so than playing them myself.

I'm also very much into cryptocurrencies and blockchain development, and consider myself a part-time crypto trader.

If you want to ask me something, just shoot me a reply ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi, I am Niyi Adewole. I have completed multiple website projects with wordpress. I created custom themes for most of these projects and finally decided to start using a front-end framework. Beans was my framework of choice after a bit of research. Just getting around to learning beans and excited to create beautiful sites with the help of the community.

Hi all Im Chedin from MY. This year, I try to get my hand dirty on WP and Beans Framework. Hope U guys can help me alot since i left WP couple years ago and now try to catch up back.

Hi all,

I'm Yan from Toulouse, France. I'm a website designer, working exclusively with Wordpress and almost exclusively with Divi theme (for now).

I have to say I'm really impressed with what Thierry (and all his team, of course) did with Beans. Amazing work... it's fast, clean, modular, and is the perfect compromise to me between too low level hardcore code and mouse clicks ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would adopt it (actually I have for my own website, transition in progress) for all my websites if not for my clients... Most of them DO WANT a page builder ๐Ÿ™

Also, I've browsed the forum a lot here to start my first child theme, and it looks like support is 6 stars here ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats !!!

Well, I have a lot of questions, but that was my "hello world" !
