Aren’t there any good stuff to tell about Thesis 2? It’s just that I find it unusable the way it’s packaged (pun intended).Conclusion: This is most probably the last blog post I’ll ever write on Thesis and DIYthemes. Site tools An important component of the Thesis framework philosophy is search engine optimization.
With three toolboxes, skins, and site tools, the people in charge of Thesis deliberately use terms that are just as foreign to a Word Press developer as to an inexperienced user.
In terms of the functionality of the tools, nothing is different: when working with Thesis, users feel less like they’re working on a Word Press theme, but instead – as already mentioned – feel like they’re working on a homepage kit.
That’s simply not optimal, so as soon as I understood how to build Word Press themes from scratch… But while it yielded designs with much much leaner code, I also had to style common HTML elements again and again. I had expected Chris Pearson’s many idiosyncratic ideas on design and typography, to be built into Thesis 2 in an almost AI manner. A regular Joe or Jane doesn’t know what a Word Press loop is.
While some code can be reused from project to project, it was never consistent, and no two websites are alike. I had at least expected Pearsonifieds Typography Calculator to be automatically applied, yet one still has to tell Thesis 2 the pixel width of the content area. And they’ll never figure out how the templates interact with the Skin CSS, and how the variables and boxes and packages interact.
His basic template was quickly accepted, so Pearson was able to pursue consistent work on the theme.
With Thesis 2.0 and the available child theme technique, the initially simple template has finally grown into a true kit for the development of versatile website layouts.
The selection of Word Press themes is huge: Practical layout templates for the popular content management system that differ considerably in terms of design, functionality, and price, make it possible to implement an extremely diverse array of web projects without barely a single complication.
Ever since version 3.0 was released and the API theme was introduced, frameworks have come to the forefront.
In 2008, the website developer Chris Pearson published his Thesis theme for Word Press on
The basic principle behind the layout template: to make the possibilities of theme design accessible to a wider majority of Word Press users.
