The DIY Thesis framework

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:

  • Boxes
  • Skins
  • Site tools

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.

Studiopress and Genesis themes and hosting

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.

Themedy WordPress child themes for Thesis and Genesis

A large number of developer create attractive child themes for Thesis and Genesis WordPress framework. Both Chris Pearson, the creator of the Thesis framework and Brian Gardner the founder of Studiopress Genesis recommends the childthemes created by the Hodder brothers at Themedy.

UpdraftPlus Migrator for changing domain name or changing to SSL

This plugin is extremely useful for the following scenarios:

    • To avoid beeing penalized by Google, all websites should use SSL. Changing from http:// to httpS:// can sometimes be a struggle.

    • You should never use your bare domain. Allways put “www” or something else in front of the domain. Changing from https://WPJeOS.no to https://www.WPJeOS.no could sometimes be a struggle. For 20 years people has been unsure whether to use https://www. or not in a web site’s canonical name. The arguments found in the blog post from January 20, 2017 by Bjørn Johansen should make this obvious.

  • More frequent than you would expect does people change their domain name. There are many reasons. In any case is the UpdraftPlus Migrator a very helpful tool.

VPS server with cPanel from Webhosting UK outside London

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. Their VPS server and reseller hosting with cPanel is for some customers a better choice than a WPJeOS server at Amazon.
