Main features & Design options Theme Options Framework
Choose fonts, add custom CSS, enable apps, tracking code, and a variety of different customization options all without touching a single line of code. Base includes a theme options framework so you can add new options with minimal lines of code for your or your client's projects.
Base includes an application framework for adding "apps" to the theme. These "apps" include things like Slideshows, Category Columns, Magazine Layouts, Sliders, Video Galleries, etc. These apps will be added to child themes and will extend the functionality of Base. These apps are also interchangeable between Base child themes, so you can mix and match any of the available apps between themes. Apps are also sortable on the Theme Options page.
Post formats are a new feature in WordPress 3.1 and will be included in Base when 3.1 is released. Post formats are similar the way in which Tumblr handles different styling for blog posts, gallery posts, video posts, quotes, Tweets, audio posts.
Select from a variety of header images, upload you own header image and select background colors. Header images add personality to your site and can change on a per-post basis if you select a Featured Image for a specific post. You can choose your own header image on the Appearance -> Header tab.
