It’s time to change my blog site’s design. I need a better theme for my sites. I’m using WordPress blogging platform and I always look for a good WordPress theme that is easy to use, easy to manage, simple and look nice. But it always turn up I design my own theme from scratch or customize an existing one.
This time I have chooses a premium WordPress theme – Genesis Framework with Minimum Pro child theme. Genesis Framework is developed by a company called StudioPress and Genesis Framework is not a theme by itself. It provides a framework on top of WordPress to add more functionality to WordPress. A child theme, in this case I’m using Minimum Pro, is required to work on top of the framework to provide the real WordPress theme.
The reason for choosing this framework is that it is so easy to configure and use. You don’t need to modify code to get what you want out of the theme. And secondly, many pro bloggers (e.g. problogger.net) are using Genesis Framework child theme for their websites. And thirdly, you only need to buy the license once, you can use on all your websites, with unlimited support. I’m still playing around with the theme and will use it on all my blogging websites. I will review more on this framework when I get more hands on. My initial feeling is: impressive, easy to use, very comprehensive of tutorial and definitely worth of the money.
These are the features offered by Genesis Framework:
- Search Engine Optimization
- Responsive HTML5 designs
- Unlimited everything: support, updates, websites.
- Instant update
- Customizable and fast
- Widgets and layout options
- A list of reliable developer if you like further customize the theme
