(This is my first time posting here, so would appreciate if anyone could let me know the best way to post questions).
Until now, I had been using TwentyEleven Theme and adding "Options Framework - http://wptheming.com/options-framework-theme/". It works great and I wish to continue using it.
However I found a better base theme Hybrid Core (http://themehybrid.com/hybrid-core), through which I could better management my development.
I wanted suggestions if its good to combine "Options Framework" & "Hybrid Core" for theme development considering Hybrid already has its own way of adding meta boxes to the Theme Options page.
