Redux is a simple, truly extensible and fully responsive options framework for WordPress themes and plugins. Built on the WordPress Settings API, Redux supports a multitude of field types as well as: 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 is designed to simplify 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 own imagination in a fraction of the time it would take to build from the ground up!

Online Demo

Don't take our word for it, check out our online demo and try Redux without installing a thing!

Use the Redux Builder to Get Started

Want to use Redux, but not sure what to do? Use our builder! It will allow you to make a custom theme based on _s, TGM, and Redux, and any Redux arguments you want to set.

Don't want to make your own theme? Then output a custom admin folder that you can place in a theme or plugin. Oh and did we mention it's free? Try it today at:

Docs & Support

We have extremely extensive docs. Please visit If that doesnt solve your concern, you should search the issue tracker on Github. If you can't locate any topics that pertain to your particular issue, post a new issue for it. Before you submit an issue, please read our contributing requirements. We build off of the dev version and push to when all is confirmed stable and ready for release.
