Support » Theme: GeneratePress » The perfect balance of function and usability

  • GeneratePress is the most flexible, easy to customize theme I have ever used… and I’ve used a lot of them.

    Many themes these days come pre-packaged with all kinds of bells and whistles that have to be removed, hopefully without breaking the theme, before I can even start with my own customization. Even so-called bare bones frameworks have their fair share of added features. Of course there is the other extreme — the themes which display nothing but raw text with little to no markup whatsoever. While all these themes do serve a purpose, I feel GeneratePress is the perfect balance of form and functionality. With minimal effort, I can make a GP child theme (he even provides one) with the look I’m going for, without having to remove features I don’t want, or having to add markup just to get to a good starting point.

    I feel that Tom, the developer, did a superb job in making GP the most flexible theme possible. His use of the Customizer to provide options is likewise, well thought out, with just the right number and choice of options for most situations. And if you want even more, his very affordable, totally optional collection of plugins will supercharge the Customizer panel with all the options you’ll ever need for almost any on-the-fly customization… without adding a ton of bloat you don’t need.

    All that said, GP is a nice theme right out of the box, ideal for those who just want a nice looking front end that they can start using right away. No theme can possibly be everything to everybody, but I do believe GeneratePress comes as close as reasonably possible. Thanks Tom!
