Thesis Wordpress Framework - Why You'll Love It

This site uses the Thesis framework from DIY Themes. In fact, lots of great, serious, important blogs use the Thesis framework (like “Copyblogger”:http://www.copyblogger.com, and “Chris Brogan’s Site”:http://www.chrisbrogan.com/).

What makes Thesis great? I’ll tell you:

  • SEO: Thesis has LOADS of options for you to tool your SEO stuff, but it’s also got a bunch of built in best practices… I won’t bore you with the details. Just be confident that Thesis has _the_ best built in SEO voodoo for youdoo.
  • Design Customization: Thesis gives you tons of knobs and colors and things to check and change about how your site looks. So, even if you don’t know how to code, you can totally customize your site’s look.
  • Speed: I mean this in two ways:
    • It’s blazing quick to get Thesis setup, and I think it’s the best out-of-the-box solution for you. Install, choose some colors, and you’re open for business.
    • Thesis is also optimized to render your pages quick. Go ahead, refresh this page. You’ll notice that some stuff comes up quick, others take a little while… That’s a GOOD thing. Search engines love speed so the first stuff rendering keeps them busy for a little while, so the other, more heavy stuff can load up. I love that.
  • Beauty & Power: The code under the covers is really gorgeous stuff… It’s all put together so well, which effects everything because it means your site doesn’t have a bunch of bloated code hanging about eating your leftovers and drinking your beers.
  • Support: Thesis comes built in with a bunch of forums and helpful people on those forums who are very eager to answer your questions about Thesis. It’s weird, but that’s the internet for you: Great Product = Avid Fans.

But here’s the rub: You’ve got to buy it. It costs money. Don’t worry though, it’s worth it. I bought my first copy a long time ago and wouldn’t go back to save my $87 if you gave me $870. To purchase Thesis, head to the DIY Themes website.
