All WordPress sites use themes to control their layout, look, and functionality. After using many different WordPress themes, both free and premium, we decided to give the Genesis Framework a try. In 2011, we began using Genesis exclusively, and we have never looked back. We have been included in the Genesis Recommended Developer list since 2013 as well.
Built by StudioPress, Genesis provides a powerful foundation with excellent functionality, search engine optimization, and security. Using a child theme along with Genesis gives your site the ability to stay up-to-date with any changes to Genesis, while still retaining your site’s design.
The folks at StudioPress explain it this way. “It’s probably easiest to think of:
- WordPress as the engine of your car.
- Genesis as the frame and body.
- Child themes as the paint job.
If you hire us to build your site, we will install Genesis and a child theme as part of the project. We do encourage you to purchase the themes yourself if you want to have access to support directly from the theme’s developer.
