What is Genesis? In short, Genesis is a framework that runs your website in the WordPress web publishing system. Think of your site as a car. Now every car needs an engine to power it, to make it run. And when you use WordPress, the engine for your website is the WordPress core. It’s the stuff you don’t often see but that makes everything work. But a car isn’t worth much but only has an engine.
You want your car to perform certain functions and look good in the process. The body of the car and all its components hook into the engine and they make a complete package. In WordPress, you use a theme to hook into the WordPress core. And like the car’s body, the theme’s job is to give everything a solid layout and to make everything look nice.
Now, just like all cars are not created equal, not all themes are created equal. Some cars have tinted windows. Some themes let you change colors. Some cars have turbochargers. Some themes let you create custom content. Some cars even have spoilers and 20-inch rims, and some themes are responsive in their layout and they have slick sliders.
But what if you want a super car? What if you want the spoiler, the 20-inch rims, turbocharger, satellite radio, and a new paint job? What if you want one theme that has secure code, search engine optimization, the ability to change your entire design, do slide shows and everything else? And not only that, but what if you want the ability to selectively turn these features on and off? You need some kind of super theme, right?
And that’s where the Genesis Framework for WordPress steps in. These super themes are often referred to as theme frameworks because they provide a framework or solid foundation for your site. The Genesis Framework is intended to give you a secure and solid starting point for your website to which you can add on and customize. The most important things you need to build a great car have been built for you. You now get to customize everything about that car. You get to choose how it looks and how it functions.
And one of the great things about the Genesis Framework is, if you are a developer with lots of experience, you can build your car or site with completely customized specs. And if you don’t have a lot of experience building websites, just like most of us don’t have a lot of experience building cars, you can choose from a number of custom paint jobs or designs to put on the engine and body of your website. In the WordPress world, we call these child themes. Child themes are prefabricated designs that fit into a solid framework. They give you the ability to change the look and layout of your site without losing the secure foundation it’s built on with the content which you’ve created. And we’ve specifically crafted over 40 unique child themes that seamlessly integrate with Genesis.
So what is Genesis? It’s much more than a mere WordPress theme. It’s a foundation that erases the headaches of security concerns and updates. It’s a framework of immaculate code that spoon-feed your content to search engines. It’s a foundry that lets you craft your website with our 40 plus child themes. It’s the industry standard of WordPress website frameworks supported fanatically by the best developers in the world.
