Are you still shopping around for a good looking theme for your blog that is not only good looking but it also is a secured theme that won’t get hacked so easily? Yes you can installed plugins to help prevent your blog from getting hacked but the Genesis Framework (StudioPress) is built with security in mind. Have less plugins installed. I don’t know if you knew this but a WordPress developer Mark Jaquith was called in to make sure the Genesis Framework was built with security in mind. Some theme developers are mostly designers and don’t really code the themes well as they try to push out themes as fast as they can to make more money.
The StudioPress team do not rush things and make sure there framework is secured and structured well to help the search engine bots to index your blog a lot faster. It’s not easy to set up a StudioPress theme after you purchase one. The theme won’t look like the demo but you have to customize it. This is where the new website called StudioPress T.V. comes into play. Watch videos to understand their framework and how to set up things.
The StudioPress T.V. website will be adding more video’s over time as they figure out what questions are mostly being asked on their support forum. This way the issues that most people have can be resolved by watching a video that might even walk you through a certain setup process. You should subscribe for email updates while you on their website. Even if you don’t join the StudioPress family right now in purchasing a theme that includes the framework at no cost, you can watch the videos to understand how much work will be involved in setting one up. This way when you purchase a theme, you can already set it up without having to ask questions in their support forum or search the internet for help.
I also have another page for you to look at. If you still confused about what the hell is the genesis framework then check out the StudioPress 101 Guide. It explains some things and click on the links on that page to get even more information. Unlike some other theme developers, you not only get a cool looking theme with life time updates for free, your blog will be running on the Genesis Framework which has some built-in SEO features to select. You can disable these built-in SEO features if you install the All In One SEO plugin or the Yoast SEO plugin. I am using the Yoast SEO plugin right now because this plugin has a built-in sitemap feature and other features that I like. Besides I’ve used this plugin before I joined studiopress so I don’t want to get any 404 pages because there are a ton of features in this plugin.
Anyways, just about all the themes that StudioPress has in their database are mobile responsive. This means they can be viewed on a mobile phone and see the same theme that they look at on a computer. No need to install a mobile plugin on your blog that could conflict with other plugins. Besides, to many plugins can slow your blog down anyways. If you can, try to install less plugins. By joining the Genesis Framework (StudioPress), you will get an easy to customize theme, built-in features, very secured theme, free support on their forum and lifetime updates on the theme. When WordPress updates their core blog software which adds more features or improves on current ones, StudioPress starts working on a new update to their framework. They stay current with WordPress’s new features and future features so they always make their framework updates good ones.
Don’t like the default StudioPress themes? Purchase a premium theme in their marketplace.
None of these themes interest you? Click on the “shop for themes” link in menu bar to view every single theme in their database.
Let me mention this again, check out the StudioPress T.V. website to watch video’s about the Genesis Framework and start to understand what they all about. Some famous bloggers are running this framework on their blogs. Let me tell you up front, I’m hosting this blog with Websynthesis.com which is owned by StudioPress and if you are not running your blog on the Genesis Framework then you can not host your blog with them. I do have some recommended web host that you could use for your blog that are good and well-known. Check out my writeup on how to create a WordPress blog. In that blog post, I recommend a few shared web hosts to use only for a WordPress blog.
