In reality the 8775 Who had which feature first argument 8776 doesn 8767 t make any sense when comparing the two themes. The Thesis team could easily chime in and say they developed XYZ features before the Genesis team. The fact they haven 8767 t thus far says something in my opinion.
[ ] 8775 Thesis and Genesis Compared 8776 from Art of Blog compares two of the leading WordPress themes. One of the criteria that the article uses to assess the themes is support and documentation. [ ]
I 8767 m not disputing the idea that switching to a poorly coded theme will negatively affect your rankings. It most likely will. There is evidence to support this, as well.
Actually, we are beta testing a new version of GenesisBuddy to make this process easier. It will literally be plug 8766 n play something any user can handle. )
I could have done a week of research and probably still missed a few points for Genesis. Like I implied in my response to Nathan, there 8767 s not much substitute for being intimately familiar with a framework through working with it day in and day out. As I said at the beginning of the article, I do that with Thesis I don 8767 t with Genesis.
The same can be said for Chris Pearson. As far as the development aspect of Thesis/DIY Themes, he 8767 s a one man show, but his development consistency over the past two years speaks for itself. Love him or hate him, you know you 8767 re going to get quality updates on a regular basis, and its quite possible that Chris has provided more innovation in the premium theme market than any other developer in the past two years.
Despite the fact that your 959 page is a fundamental and important part of your site, you can 8767 t control its content with a typical WordPress installation.
The great thing about Genesis is that coder 8767 s have a ton of flexibility to build what they want and provide options to do what they want. But if you 8767 re not a coder, you have all the same design options using Prose.
Another point is the use of each Framework on a MultiSite installation. With Genesis and it 8767 s use of child themes, for a second site, you can just create second child theme if you want a different theme. With Thesis and earlier (it may have been addressed in ), a hack on core files was needed to get it working that 8767 s always going to be messy for those who don 8767 t fully understand what they are doing.
