Getting Started

Unyson is a framework for WordPress that facilitates development of a theme. This framework was created from the ground up by the team behind ThemeFuse from the desire to empower developers to build outstanding WordPress themes fast and easy.


This documentation assumes you have a working knowledge of WordPress. If you haven’t, please start by reading WordPress Documentation.


Install the framework with the default theme

If you want to start creating a theme based on the Unyson default theme:

  1. Download the archive from the Unyson GitHub repository.
  2. Extract the zip in the wp-content/themes directory.

Install only the framework

If you already started to create a theme and want to include the Unyson framework in it:

  1. Download the archive from the framework’s GitHub repository.

  2. Extract it to your parent theme directory. After this you must have framework/ directory in parent theme. It’s mandatory to have this exact same folder structure otherwise it will not work.

  3. Include the Unyson framework by adding this line in your theme’s functions.php:

    require dirname(__FILE__) .'/framework/bootstrap.php';
