Genesis VS Thesis — Which Theme Framework Is The Future?

Genesis Or Thesis! This is the ultimate smack down between the two best Wordpress theme frameworks around!

 If you've a started a WordPress blog, the first thing you'd want to do is to choose a professional template. You've two options to proceed. Either you could install a standalone template. There are thousands of WordPress templates around. Free ones and premium ones on Themeforest too.

Though what many experts recommend is to make use of the amazing theme frameworks for WordPress that makes life a lot easier for any WordPress user. You would ask why so? Well, this post is all about letting you know more about these awesome WordPress theme frameworks and why I believe, Genesis theme framework for WordPress is taking over the market.

Why Thesis Died?

When Thesis theme framework was launched for WordPress in around 2006 or even before that, it took the Industry by storm. It wasn't that easy to customize any WordPress theme so easily. With the theme editor, you could simply customize any particular section of the theme you wished for.

Thesis was coming up with new updates and improved 'everything' until it the all controversial update 2.0

Epic Fail At 1.x To 2.0 Thesis Migration

After Thesis rolled out 2.0 update, it was quite an overall of the platform and it didn't had any considerable mechanism for the older version users to port their blogs current themes to the new 2.0 version.

That really turned off all the fans and soon we had another awesome competitor in the market, Genesis Theme Framework!

Thesis actually sucked at two things! Their documentation lacked a lot, specially after introducing Thesis 2.0. As per their team, they couldn't keep up with the work load and they understand that their documentation is lacking behind user's expectations.

Switching Over Of Matt Cuts

Matt cuts, heads of Google web spam team switched over to Genesis framework and soon after people started to wonder what could make him possibly do that? Was there any superiority that Genesis had over Thesis framework in terms of search engine optimization?

Difficultly Level

With Genesis, any beginner who doesn't have prior knowledge of programming or coding can get started. There a bunch of child themes available and there is absolutely no need to hire a developer to manage your theme.

Thesis definitely scared people when they had to know template specific programming functions to make changes to the theme. Thesis is a lot easier in this regard for sure.

If you're doing blogging professionally, you'd want to run multiple blogs and for that matter, Genesis is just amazing. You can set different child themes to your different blogs. In an all, you would be having an experience with the framework overall.

Genesis Specific Plugins

As the demand for Genesis continues to grow, more developers are creating plugins for Genesis rather than Thesis. There are a bunch of plugins that you'll just find specific to Genesis and are not available in Thesis. e.g Genesis Optimized Social Share, Genesis Footer Builder, Display Featured Image for Genesis, and many more.

That goes to show the power of Genesis Framework.

Genesis User Support

As Genesis is spreading like a viral, popular bloggers are shifting towards it, there is definteliy a lot of Q/A and FAQs already answered about the framework. In case you get stucked at something, you can easily get the answer with a simple Google search. Third party support for Thesis is shrinking.

Hope it would be easy for you to decide between the two WordPress theme frameworks. Do let me know if you've any further questions regarding the two frameworks :)
