I love Kohana code, I don't love Wordpress code. I need to upgrade a blog to have a custom theme, very custom with Grid style blog roll (like Pinterest) and Traditional Blog Roll, and fully responsive for all devices.
I was thinking of keeping the Back end on Wordpress as it currently is (maybe on a different subdomain), and then writing a custom Kohana front end, which queries the WP database and makes up the pages. All blogging happens on WP, all pages that readers see are run as a Kohana site.
Am I crazy? Has anyone tried this? Is there anything to watch out for?
(Yes, what I need to do probably could be done by an experienced WP developer, but I'm not him, and I'm gonna have to maintain this for years to come).
