Out with the old , in with the new. My sites are now all powered by the genesis Framework. So what exactly does that mean ?
When I started designing websites the first thing I learned was that the web has changed a lot , no longer do you use just plain html or flash (sies lol) , the in word was Content Management System or CMS as its known and one of the best CMS systems was WordPress. There are others like Joomla etc but I just loved WordPress for its ease of use , flexibility and massive support system.
Its difficult to simplify what Genesis is to WordPress and web designing but think of WordPress in this case as if you want to open a shop and WordPress is like a standard setup with shelves , tills , mirrors etc already in place and you have the ability to shift things easy around to how you like it to be displayed , furthermore you can change the colors and sizes of the shelves or do a front window display for walk by customers
Now Genesis is the mechanics of how you change these and move these things around. Instead of just anyone just breaking the shelves and moving it you have a set of professionals that does it for you to a much higher spec. Genesis assist with how you look after your WordPress site , the code is clean and the support is the best out there. It also greatly assist with things like SEO and Html5.
I searched long for a solid framework for my clients and genesis is generally regraded as the best or in the top 3 frameworks for WordPress. Its worth every dollar (yes I did that purposely ha ha)
