‌I really enjoy using Muse. I hear it will soon include responsive design, which is awesome. I would really love to figure out how to use Muse to create Word Press Themes quickly. Has anyone done this? Is anyone working on this, or is this something you also thought about doing?

This is not possible with Muse. Wordpress has a very proprietary structure and uses PHP. Muse generates HTML, CSS and Javascript only.

‌That's a shame. This is the only thing missing with Muse. Maybe I could export the site to html and then change the extensions to PHP? I know it's a stretch, but it seems it could be possible to do this and then maybe tweek the files to fit into the Wordpress structure? But then, this might be more work than actually building a Wordpress theme from scratch. It just seems that Muse might give me a good starting point. I don't know...I'm just now learning code, so I'm curious.

The code that Muse generates is not very usable for even experienced coders. You would be better off starting from scratch in Dreamweaver.

‌Yeah, you're right, that makes sense. Oh well.  It would be a dream if maybe one day Business Catalyst supported PHP and Muse output PHP code. Together, they could create a phenomenal CMS that has the potential to be so much better than WordPress. Muse is so intuitive. It really almost gives web designers the power to create anything they can imagine, minus any site that would need a CMS or dynamic content. But the Adobe and Muse teams are in my opinion the best out there. Muse is a fantastic product. I wish I could use it for everything!

Business Catalyst does not support PHO and doesn't need to. It is already a far superior CMS than Wordpress.

I believe you, I just never have experimented much with business catalyst.

How is it superior to WordPress?
