There is simply no better theme or framework available for WordPress. Genesis is the best of the best.
It’s difficult for us to give an unbiased review of the Genesis framework because it’s such an essential part of what Nuts and Bolts Media does. Our entire business revolves around using Genesis to build WordPress websites, whether directly for clients or from our design partners’ mockups.
Genesis is powerful, well-coded, and endlessly customizable without a lot of bloat. Because of the rock solid team behind it, Genesis is absolutely the best choice for a WordPress site that looks great and performs well. All Nuts and Bolts Media websites are built on Genesis because we believe it’s simply the best option available.
One of the strongest draws to Genesis is the community. With tons of skilled designers and developers working with Genesis every day, there are tons of tutorials, guides, and resources freely available online, as well as plugins that were created specifically for Genesis sites. No matter what problem you need to solve, someone has likely done the same thing and will be more than willing to share tips and tricks.
When you purchase Genesis and any child themes, you are granted a lifetime developer license, which means you are free to install your files on as many sites as you’d like without ever paying a renewal fee to receive access to documentation, updates, and support. For $60, you can purchase the Genesis framework and receive member pricing for future child theme purchases, making Genesis one of the most affordable premium WordPress solutions available. You can also purchase child themes from any of the multiple third party theme sellers, including Web Savvy Marketing, Restored316 Designs, and Appfinite (three of our favorites).
Each Genesis child theme comes with access to detailed setup instructions, making it easy to get started. Support is just an email away and the team works hard to provide users with the information they need to make Genesis work well for them. With a “no questions asked” 30-day refund policy, there’s really no excuse not to get started with Genesis – you’ll be glad you did.
