Website Platform Information

Matt Mullenweg Founder, WordPress on Recommending Genesis
“Child themes are the only way you should build your WordPress site on top of a framework, and Genesis has great support for child themes and other WordPress functionality.”

Search Engine Optimized

You put a lot into your site and you want to make sure that you’re ranking well in the search engines so readers, customers, and clients can find you. And clean, optimized code is important for achieving the best rankings possible.

State of the art code and smart design architecture make it easy for search engines to see what you’ve got. With automatic updates to the Framework, you never have to think about it again. Your code will always be up to date and fully optimized.

Our themes have been fully search optimized by Greg Boser, partner and SVP of of search marketing powerhouse BlueGlass Interactive. Genesis will help your blog rank higher in the search engines, and by following our tutorials and recommendations you can achieve even better search engine placement results.

Genesis Gives You State-of-the-Art Security

Websites can be vulnerable to those who want to take your site down or exploit it for malicious reasons. Having your site hacked is an expensive, time-consuming hassle and it can really damage your reputation. We brought security expert and core WordPress developer Mark Jaquith in to make sure the Genesis Framework had the best security possible. With his help, we build our framework to follow all WordPress security best practices.

Genesis Makes Customizing Your Site Incredibly Easy

Genesis offers features to make it simple to set up your site exactly the way you want it. And if you change your mind later, you’re just a few clicks away from creating new sections and functions.

WordPress widgets are the quick and easy way to add powerful functionality to your site. Without having to know anything about code, you can use simple widgets to add sidebars, social media sharing buttons, and much more.

Comment Functionality
Comments are a great way to build engagement and loyalty with your readers. Our themes give your readers a great comment experience, including threaded comments and Gravatar integration.

Auto-sized Featured Images
There are millions of blogs out there. If you want yours to stand out, you need to draw attention to your blog and articles … and nothing sparks interest better than using great images.

Genesis has Custom Widgets and Layout Options

Because the Genesis Framework has been widgetized beyond just the sidebar, we developed some custom widgets for you to use on any area of your site. Here’s a list of the custom widgets available with the Genesis Framework:

  • My Tweets – displays an unordered list of your latest Tweets.
  • User Profile – displays the Gravatar of a user, as well as their bio and a link to an about page.
  • eNews & Updates – displays an opt-in box for users to receive your posts by email.
  • Featured Posts – displays post excerpts and a thumbnail to be used in a featured section.
  • Featured Page – displays page excerpts and a thumbnail to be used in a featured section.

Another great feature is that you can mix and match layout. This means you can choose, via a radio-button, any of the 6 layouts for each one of your individual pages or posts. You are no longer are limited to one layout for your entire site! These are easily selected on the Theme’s Settings page and give you the flexibility with all themes (Genesis parent and any child themes) to choose whichever layout you want as the default. Here’s a list of the 6 default layout options:

  • content/sidebar
  • sidebar/content
  • content/sidebar/sidebar
  • sidebar/content/sidebar
  • sidebar/sidebar/content
  • full width content {no sidebar}

Themes are valid and cross-browser compliant

Theme will display on iPads, iPhones, and other mobile devices via the device’s browser, just like they would in a regular computer browser. If you want to optimize a site to display on a smart phone like the iPhone, a plugin can be added.
