Since I do not want to spend time learning CSS and PHP I have used Thesis since 28. April 2010 for most of my WordPress work. The second reason for using Thesis is the personal support tickets I post frequently. The third reason for using Thesis is the support forum. I usually get help within 24 hours. In 2016 there wh was ere problems with Thesis and WP-CLI. After some months the issue was fixed in a newer version of Thesis. Thanks. Thesis is built on three features:
With these features combined with use of forum and support ticket are you able to accomplish very much with WordPress without having programming skills. You should head over to their homepage to get all the details.
Genesis framework from Studiopress is much the same as Thesis. Genesis is used by more people than Thesis. Genesis strictly follows the guidelines and recommendations from WordPress. I find Thesis to be easier to use. Genesis is used by more developers. Studiopress also provides hosting.

Not all of us enjoy using a SSH client. Some require GUI admin panel. When I closed down my datacenter in 2008, all the websites was migrated to Webhosting UK. After nine years I am still amazed about the 24-7-365 support with the “Getting Things Done” attitude of this company. They are remarkable and outstanding.
