7 Reasons Genesis is The Best WordPress Framework
As most of our friends and affiliates know, we are huge fans of StudioPress and their Genesis parent theme framework. We use Genesis for nearly all of our website design projects for a variety of reasons. Before we get started digging into those reasons we will give you the number one reason we use the WordPress Genesis framework up front and that is reliability. We rest easy at night knowing that Genesis will hold up as our clients update, grow and add new functionalities to their sites. By the time you’re done reading this post, we know you’ll be a fan as well.
Code is an obviously important element in determining the value of a framework. The WordPress Genesis framework provides a clean and sharp design. The framework is so well put together that it rarely needs updating and will continue to be usable in the future as websites grow. The Genesis framework is built using HTML5 code standards which are the highest quality coding standards available. Since most of the web is now adapting to HTML5, your site is sure to be compatible for the foreseeable future. The code has been developed for browser compatibility, mobile responsiveness, and delivery of digital assets.
WordPress security is an extremely vital part of your website design project. Site vulnerabilities can come in the form of themes, plugins, outdated versions of WordPress and more. Just like any content management systems, security protocols need to be in place. The Genesis framework is designed to be as secure as possible. In fact, WordPress core developer Mark Jaquith even provided insights to make sure of that.
One of the greatest things about the Genesis framework is that it is cross-compatible with most plugins that are available on the market. This means that plugins like MemberPress, Yoast SEO, BuddyPress, WebinarAlly, and more all work well when paired with Genesis. You can’t get that with every parent theme on the market.
The Genesis framework is super flexible! So flexible that customizing it is easy. At a base level you can use the widget areas that they established for you. Those widget areas extend beyond the typical sidebars in WordPress. You can even use widgets in the body of your pages. If you’re the less technically minded type, there are even design plugins like Beaver Builder that will help you take the Genesis framework to the next level. Either way, you’re in good hands in your ability to use Genesis to design and customize your dream website.
One of the best parts of owning the Genesis framework is that you get unlimited support, updates, and uses. That’s something that isn’t available with most parent themes. StudioPress focuses on quality and the customer. You’ll see that from the moment you buy your theme to the day you have your first question. If you have any questions at all, they have support forums with easy access available so you can reference previously asked questions or even get assistance with your own. You’re in good hands with StudioPress. Did we mention that access if for the lifetime use of the product.
Obviously pricing is an important part of your decision making process when you buy both child and parent themes. You’re in luck. The Genesis Parent framework simply requires a one-time payment of $60.00. The remaining child themes that you’ll need for development only cost $40.00. On top of that, after your first purchase, you’ll even receive a returning customer discount. Talk about treating your customers right. All you need to develop a quality website can be bought within one shopping cart.
