The Studiopress Genesis theme framework is built on a simple vanilla blog-type parent theme, and can be extended with the use of child themes. Each child theme will come with it’s own home file, which will make extending the parent theme very easy to do. It will also have it’s own functions file as well.
The studiopress have built the Genesis theme framework in a way that will continue making your work of customizing our themes just as easy – if not easier.
When studiopress started development of the Genesis theme framework, studiopress took into consideration that both new WordPress users and advanced WordPress developers would be using it. studiopress have created a number of custom widgets that will make things easier to use and more customizable as studiopressll. In addition to that, studiopress’ve also placed over 30 hooks into the theme to give advanced users and plugin developers the ability to hook into various locations throughout the theme.
Extending the Genesis Theme Framework
The Genesis parent theme will serve as the foundation of all of our current themes as studiopressll as new themes going forward. You’ll notice the demo site is a simple blog theme – and from there, it can be extended with the use of child themes. All child themes will include their own stylesheet, images folder, home.php file and functions.php file which will register additional widget areas and define custom post thumbnail sizes. Take a look at the Durango child theme, which will be available for purchase.
You honestly can’t have a great framework unless you have great SEO built in. Unfortunately for most themes, good SEO is a complex and difficult asset to build in. Fortunately for you, Genesis lays the groundwork for excellent on-site SEO. And because it’s a framework (easy and free to update), the evolving studiopressb will be met with an evolving theme, providing you with superior SEO today, tomorrow, and for years to come. Specifically …
* Site-wide SEO settings so YOU can control what you want the Search Engines to see
* In-Post SEO to give you even greater control on a per-post and per-page basis
* Semantic markup for search engine readability
* Modern, standards-compliant markup structure
* Lean code for faster search engine crawls
* An evolving SEO strategy for evolving SEO standards
Because Genesis is a framework upon which many themes will be built, as Genesis evolves, all child themes based on Genesis inherit the benefits. Everybody wins!!!
The Genesis theme framework comes with 3 default layout options – content/sidebar, sidebar/content and content/sidebar/content. This is easily changed on the theme options page, and gives you the flexibility with all themes (Genesis parent and any child themes) to choose whichever layout you want.
WordPress 2.9 and Post Thumbnails
With the release of WordPress 2.9, studiopress’ve developed the Genesis theme framework to utilize default post thumbnail functionality. For a number of reasons, studiopress have abandoned the use of Tim Thumb for displaying thumbnails, and will be in a position to easily update as WordPress works towards dynamic resizing. In the meantime, studiopress have built in the ability to display custom thumbnail image sizing.
Genesis and BuddyPress
studiopress’ve been asked many times if our themes are compatible with BuddyPress, and up until now – studiopress’ve unfortunately had to say no. At this point studiopress’re very happy to say that WPMU/BuddyPress gurus Ron and Andrea Resnick will be developing “add-on” packages that can be purchased/supported on a site of theirs. studiopress felt that made sense, since they both have extensive knowledge with the software and how it can be implemented.
Child Theme Marketplace
Once studiopress launch the Genesis theme framework, studiopress will be opening up a child theme marketplace – this is something that will begin as invite-only, in order for us to establish a good process with folks. Ultimately this gives designers a chance to develop child themes based on Genesis and an immediate place to market and sell themes here on StudioPress. This will operate under a revenue share, which is yet to be determined.
