The Genesis Theme Framework comes with multiple layout options and a number of child themes that work with the framework and provide a number of enhancements above a typical WordPress theme. It also serves as a platform to build upon for additional functionality. At WebDevStudios, we specialize in building custom Genesis child themes for your WordPress powered website.
WebDevStudios can help customize your Genesis WordPress theme to display your content wherever and however you like. For those of you who are interested in using the Thesis theme, we recommend taking a look at Genesis before making a decision. Genesis was built with a focus on the design element and we believe enhances the design options and functionality of websites.
There are many reasons to use Genesis on your website, below are just a few:
Security – The Genesis theme framework provides a strong focus on security. Mark Jaquith, one of the Core developers of WordPress, has been hired to run security audits on Genesis. Mark is the top WordPress security expert in the industry and has verified Genesis is using the appropriate methods for security.
Flexibility – Genesis is endlessly flexible, allowing you to have a customized website designed to fit any style you can imagine. Genesis offers a wide array of options and hooks making it possible to create any design in your Genesis child theme.
Theme Updates – Updating your theme can be a daunting task. It’s very hard to know if an upgrade will be compatible with your website and plugins. With Genesis there is no need to worry! Your custom Genesis child theme will not be touched during the upgrade process, only the parent Genesis framework theme is upgraded. These means you never have to worry about losing your design customizations.
GPL Compliant – Genesis is released under the GPL software license. This is the same software license used by WordPress. What does this mean? It means there are no conflicting software licenses between your theme and WordPress. Some premium themes are not released under the GPL and therefore violate the WordPress license. You don’t want to run a website that has the potential to infringe upon a software license do you?
Overall Genesis is a very powerful theme framework for WordPress. With endless design possibilities it’s easy to see why Genesis is already a popular choice among the WordPress community.
