Ten reasons to use WordPress themes from StudioPress
I’ve been using some WordPress themes from StudioPress in recent months and have been pretty impressed – so I thought I would highlight some of the reasons why in this short post.
- Customisable search engine options so that you can have different titles and other meta tags for each post/page.
- Sensible use of the
<h1>tag so that the
<h1>on the home page is different to posts or other pages. For example, for effective search engine optimisation you do not want the
<h1>tag to be wrapped around the site title on all pages; this is customisable in StudioPress theme settings
- Simple redirection of RSS feeds to Feedburner without using a plug-in.
- A whole range of primary and secondary navigation menu options. Granted, WordPress have improved their custom menu options in recent months but the StudioPress options work really well.
- Different layout options for each post/page. For example, you might want content with a single sidebar on some pages but two sidebars on others.
- Addition of scripts in the header or above the closing
</body>tag via the admin.
- Plain talking in the SEO Settings page. For example, “These provide no SEO value whatsoever”. Love it!
- The Genesis Simple Hooks Plug-in which enables further theme development via an admin interface.
- Fully widgetised home page: I’ve found this to be a great help on new websites when you want to move content areas around and/or turn off others.
- The themes look great!
Sorry if this is a bit of a fanboy article but I’ve not found any disadvantages of StudioPress themes yet.
Info: I have used the Genesis theme with various child themes on several projects.
