What is Genesis Framework?
Before we can talk about Genesis Framework we have to first discuss what a framework is and what it does for your WordPress blog. I like to use the analogy of a car as told by the folks at StudioPress who developed it. A framework works like the frame of the car to your WordPress blog, First, you install and activate it’s file like any other theme. Then, use a child theme that goes with it as your paint job. The framework and the them go hand in hand to create a pretty and powerful blog site.
The fascinating part is that Genesis Framework allows for you to create a stunning and high quality blog site with any number of large premium child themes. There are lots of options for child themes because Genesis Framework is developer friendly.

Three Types of WordPress Users
WordPress Newbie – A beginner may find Genesis Framework to be a bit challenging to use since it does require some html coding and it is not an “out of the box” standard premium theme. If as a newbie you are having a developer do advanced customizations, this may prove to be a great option, but it won’t be the cheapest option.
Dibble Dabber – An intermediate WordPress user may know a little code and be looking for a blog theme that is more SEO friendly and efficient. After you’ve gained experience with different WordPress themes, you will learn which themes and plugins can slow the site down. Nevertheless, if the look and feel of your blog is important for leveling up, this may be one of the best options in WordPress design for you.
Tech Expert – Someone who is advanced in using WordPress and possibly even a developer who builds child themes may find Genesis Framework to be limiting if they want lots of customization options. This framework doesn’t allow for as much flexibility as the Unyson, Gantry or Beans frameworks. It is still a client favorite and it’s high quality appeal allows them great value for the price without having a theme built from scratch.
