The Thesis Theme by DIY Themes used to be one of the most powerful and flexible WordPress Themes available. It is a bare bones theme platform which could be developed and modified in countless ways.
My ProofPositive website has been up and running for over fifteen years. Over the years it has seen many changes, from manual HTML coding, to a custom built Dreamweaver site to the “out of the box” Thesis Theme I now use.
The problem is … I am using an old version of the theme and because of a huge amount of very bad press saying that the new versions of Thesis have gone straight down hill I will not be updating. The challenge will be to find a great responsive theme, that can handle a huge website, and will not turn into scrambled eggs when I do a switchover.
IF you are happy to use the Thesis Theme out of the box, you might still consider using it. However, if you want to add your own design and functionality be prepared for a learning curve with very little help. You need to be an experienced WordPress user and you should be very familiar with CSS coding. If you don’t know what CSS is, then don’t get this program!
