Basically Genesis is a Framework and you can either build a custom child theme or can choose from their long range of child themes and get your job done. If you have a budget then can go for their Pro Plus Package ($349.99 USD) which offers “Unlimited Everything” but if you don’t have a budget then buy either Agency (http://demo.studiopress.com/agency)
or Magazine (http://demo.studiopress.com/magazine/), these two are their best themes and both of them are responsive. Before buying you can test the responsiveness by pasting demo link(s) in the following URL http://studiopress.com/responsive/. Single theme costs $79.99 USD.
Any child theme package comes with the following:
- Genesis Framework and Child Theme itself
- Support forum access for that particular theme and generic Genesis issues (http://www.studiopress.com/support/), and support is lifelong you don’t need to pay recurring fees for that
- Apart from the support forum access they have free tutorial site as well (http://dev.studiopress.com/)
- Once you buy a theme from them you can build unlimited owned and client websites using it
- With excellent support and well engineered Framework architecture you can customize these themes to a great level to fulfill your client requirements
- There are range good plugins to make the customization even easier like – Genesis Simple Hooks (http://www.studiopress.com/plugins/simple-hooks), Genesis Simple Edits (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/genesis-simple-edits/), Simple Social Icons (http://www.studiopress.com/plugins/simple-social-icons), etc
- Agency works best with Genesis Responsive Slider (http://www.studiopress.com/plugins/genesis-responsive-slider) and Magazine works best with Genesis Slider (http://www.studiopress.com/plugins/genesis-slider) but you can also use the Responsive Slider as it is responsive
- If you want a slider within widget then then vSlider (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/vslider/) is a nice handy slider
If you want to try other options WooThemes.com is a good option.
Even if you don’t go for Genesis but never go for the following providers either:
Where can I find the best wordpress templates?
If I have to answer this question in 2021, you can find WP templates every were. These days building a website using Word Press [Popular open-source Content Management System (CMS)] is quite common. By now I doubt if we can even count the number of websites that are built on WP.
We have more than a handful of providers promising to offer the best WP themes. But few basic and important things that you should consider before choosing a WordPress template provider.
Apart from understanding or play around with options, I would not suggest free templates as they come with lots of restrictions. If you take your idea of building your website seriously and you should also check the code quality of the website as the speed of the website also depends on the code quality.
Before signing up for any services going through the reviews about the providers is still considered to be a best practice. It actually gives a fair Idea on how serious are they in to theme developing. Because the quality of the provider as well as the code reflects in the functionality of the website.
Building WP websites are quite easy now a days, but you should evaluate on how user friendly is it so we do not have to struggle later. This becomes easier when have a clear idea as to why are we creating a website.
What is the best template for wordpress?
That being said, there are a few factors to consider when selecting a WordPress template that can help you find the right one:
- Purpose: Consider the purpose of your website. Is it a blog, an online store, a business website, or something else? The template you choose should reflect the purpose of your website.
- Customizability: Look for a template that is highly customizable and can be easily tailored to your brand and content. A flexible template will allow you to make changes as your website grows and your needs evolve.
- Responsiveness: Choose a template that is mobile-friendly and responsive. With more and more people accessing the internet from mobile devices, it’s important that your website is optimized for smaller screens.
- Speed: Speed is a critical factor in user experience and SEO. Choose a template that loads quickly and is optimized for performance.
- Support: Look for a template that has good support and documentation, so that you can get help when you need it.
Some popular WordPress template providers include StudioPress, Themeforest, Elegant Themes, and Themeisle, but there are many other options available. Take the time to research and explore different templates to find the one that best fits your needs.
