Tina MVC provides you with base classes and helper classes and functions on which you build your WordPress applications.

It uses a lose model view controller pattern to abstract design and logic and make life easier for you and your HTML designer.


  • Completely separate your code from WordPress themes. Your users can change their theme and still retain your application functionality.
  • A helper class for generating and processing HTML forms.
  • A helper class for generating paginated tables from SQL (for when custom posts are not appropriate).
  • A helper class for generating HTML tables from your data.
  • Separation of your code from core Tina MVC files for easy upgrades.
  • Compact and non-intrusive. Currently 3 filters plus 1 action hook for widgets and 1 shortcode hook are used for basic usage.
  • A function to allow you to call a Tina MVC controller from your theme file (breaks the MC) or from another controller.
  • Flexible enough for quick procedural prototyping - don't like MVC? No problem!
