It’s no secret that I love WordPress, but what about framework and child themes?
Hands down, I’m a Genesis gal. Using Genesis by Studiopress gives me the confidence that my sites are sitting on a good foundation.
I’m sure there are other frameworks out there, but why switch when you’re happy with what you use?
Oh, let me back up and explain what a framework is.
The simplest way to explain it is using the analogy of a house. The framework is, well the framework. Think of walls and divided rooms and the roof.
The child theme gives your site the look and feel you’re after. Kind of like wall coverings and paint.
If your foundation won’t hold up to the beating it takes through wear and tear … or better yet, if it was laid on unstable ground, what are the odds it will last long?
So I came across an article that showcases several child themes. I have to say that I have primarily used Studiopress, but I recently discovered WebSavvy which I love. I’m excited to explore more options and this article by Jeremiah Froyland, 63+ Free Genesis Child Themes for WordPress, has me intrigued.
