Redux Framework


Redux was built by developers for developers. We save you months if not years in your development time. Everything we do is to help innovation in the industry.

♥️ What the Plugin does?

Redux is a simple, genuinely extensible, and fully responsive options framework for WordPress themes and plugins. Built on the WordPress Settings API; Redux supports many field types, custom error handling, custom fields & validation types, and import/export functionality.

But what does Redux actually DO? We don’t believe that theme and plugin developers should have to reinvent the wheel every time they start work on a project. Redux simplifies the development cycle by providing a streamlined, extensible framework for developers to build on. Through a simple, well-documented config file, third-party developers can build out an options panel limited only by their imagination in a fraction of the time it would take to build from the ground up!

🎉Additional Features

  • Output CSS Automatically – Redux generates CSS and the appropriate Google Fonts stylesheets for you on select fields. You need to only specify the CSS selector to apply the CSS to (limited to certain fields).
  • Compiler integration! A custom hook runs when any fields with the argument `compile => true` are changed.
  • Field validation and sanitization
  • Field and section disabling
  • Oh, and did we mention a fully integrated Google Fonts setup that will make you so happy you’ll want to cry?

🔐 Privacy

Redux does not interact with end users on your website. If a product is using Redux, the option panel will cease to function without Redux.

NOTE: Redux is not intended to be used on its own. It requires a config file provided by a third-party theme or plugin developer to actually do anything cool!


  1. Upload the entire plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.


Why doesn’t this plugin do anything?

Redux is an option framework… in other words, it’s not designed to do anything on its own! You can, however, activate a demo mode to see how it works.

I don't use a lot of plugins, beyond the ones that are mandatory for a theme. The "less is more and safer" approach seems increasingly prudent from a Cybersecurity standpoint. Consequently, I almost never require support for a plugin. However, a recent version of Redux Framework caused a site I manage to display improperly. The issue stemmed solely from how the Theme Developer implemented Redux Framework, but Kev Provance, from Team Redux, quickly realized the problem and graciously provided a fix within one (1) day. Not only is the plugin highly regarded, but the support is exemplary.

I love the way it is helpful for a non-developer like me. I wish the things could be a little more easy, especially for setting up header and footer and product pages.
