Genesis Theme Framework Review: Best Theme Framework for WordPress

This is a review of Genesis Theme Framework for WordPress by StudioPress.

What is Genesis theme framework?

Genesis theme framework is a beautifully crafted WordPress parent theme framework that has been designed to help you take your WordPress powered website from ‘average’ to ‘awesome’, not just on the outside but more importantly on the inside too.

Getting a professionally designed website at an affordable price has been made absolutely simple and possible with the power of Genesis from StudioPress. Genesis will give your site a complete competitive edge over your competitors, with impeccable performance and functionality. We review Genesis theme framework and find out why we think it’s the best Premium WordPress theme framework on the market.

Why do I think Genesis is Brilliant?

I’ve been an avid Genesis user for almost two years and have tried many of their premium ready made themes with many web projects, I have also used many other frameworks such as Headway and Thesis and when compared with Genesis, there is simply no contest between them. Genesis offers far more better value and performance for your money. I’m not just a fan of the product, I’m an avid user, and developer on a steep learning curve.

So what makes Genesis theme framework so special that you simply have to use it? We’ll in this review you’ll find out…

Flawless Design Quality & Security

Genesis has been created with not just external aesthetics in mind, but also what matters the most in a good premium WordPress theme is what’s on the inside, the functionality of the theme.

With Genesis you’re getting a professionally coded theme that is worth 4 times it’s weight in gold. We are all aware of the security concerns’ regarding the popularity of WordPress and the hackers that prey upon it’s users, well Genesis was designed with that security in mind; you can rest assured that your site will remain guarded and won’t be vulnerable to security threats from hackers with Genesis.

Something that many other premium and more over, free WordPress themes don’t offer much of… security.

40+ Beautifully Crafted Child Themes

When you purchase Genesis you can purchase a package that includes one of their 40 plus beautifully crafted child themes. Each child theme is created to a high standard and there is something to suit every type of site. There is also a wide range of themes to choose from created by the StudioPress community of developers.

Again when you purchase any of the child themes for Genesis, you are getting unlimited everything including those all important updates, which brings us to the feature.

Simple & Unlimited Updates for Life…

One of the biggest advantages of using Genesis is that you get unlimited updates after you’ve made your purchase and installed it into your WordPress blog. Unlike many other popular frameworks you don’t just get 6 or 12 months worth of updates and that’s it, but a lifetime worth of updates. More over Genesis has made it real simple to apply those updates using a simple on-click update from your WordPress dashboard.

Again focusing on the security aspects, no one likes to discover that their WordPress site has been hacked into, I’m sure you wouldn’t. Updating to the latest versions of WordPress and Genesis when prompted adds even further reinforcement to the security of your WordPress site.

Genesis is Simple to Customize

Yet another great feature with Genesis is that it offers users the ability to customize their WordPress site effortlessly. Genesis comes complete widget ready with plenty of theme options available. You can view the full Genesis options page here >>

Genesis offer Exceptional Value for Money

Genesis is used by top bloggers like Chris Brogan and Darren Rowse from ProBlogger, so that’s a statement in itself. Why do those guys trust Genesis? Simple, because it offers so much, and so much at an exceptional price too. Genesis will set you back $59.95, if that’s not a bargain then I don’t know what is. At that price you’re getting one of the most, if not the most powerful premium WordPress theme frameworks on the market.


It’s fair to say we love Genesis theme framework, and we believe that if you love your blog and want to be serious about blogging on a professional level, then give your WordPress site the stability, the security and the performance it deserves; invest in Genesis theme Framework today, it gets a 5 star rating from me, and rarely does that happen.

  1. Nice Review Fabrizio. I am also using Genesis and its really easy to maintain. No need to coding and all :)

  2. Nice Review.. No doubt that Genesis is awesome! But I had one question in mind – My blog is currently new and doesn’t get much traffic. Do you I should invest in frameworks? PS I have Elegant Premium Themes. Please share your thoughts on this. Thanks

    • Fabrizio Van Marciano says:

      Elegant themes are great themes I’ve used them before in projects, but I really think that you cannot go wrong with Genesis. I started with Genesis right from the start when I had a few visits per day. If you want something that’s going to last the run go for Genesis. Having a great framework will only encourage more traffic regardless.

  3. Wow ! finally you created review of genesis. All the best :)
