I did not found problems to use it in a child theme. I also don't save the
parent / child options on a different way.

In the review process https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/15869 i
found the option framework should be optional and not build in.
suggests me to take a look at http://wordpress.org/themes/portfolio-press i
see how to can be made optional.

Although i first thought making it optional was impossible, i now think it
is the right way  to do.

As discussed on this list this week in fact plugins should be bundled at
all. Main reasons bundled plugin can not updated by users and theme reviews
do not review plugin code.

In the case of the option framework, you don't fix these problems but only
reduce them.
Without the plugin bundled your theme still should have an options.php
file. Also there is no of_get_option() function which should be copied from
the plugin to your theme.


Mocht u / je nog vragen hebben, dan kun(t) u / je altijd contact opnemen.
Ik ben het best bereikbaar via de e-mail.
