Introducing 3 Powerful Genesis Theme Framework Third Party Tools

Share Article

B2Web announces 3 new third party tools turn the Genesis theme framework into an e-commerce store, add graphics via shortcodes and offer a drag and drop panel for customizing design and layout.

Recently 3 popular WordPress theme developers released products in the form of 2 plugins and 1 child theme that integrate with the popular Genesis theme framework by StudioPress.

The first is WooThemes who developed the WooCommerce plugin. The WooCommerce plugin is an addon that turns WordPress websites into fully functional e-commerce websites. Presently, it's a free plugin.

The second is Catalyst Themes who developed the Dynamik child theme specifically for the Genesis theme framework. Dynamik child theme provides Genesis users with full drag and drop technology inside their Genesis Framework. Presently, it must be purchased. It is not included with a Genesis theme license purchase.

The third is ElegantThemes, who this month released their popular shortcodes functionality in a universal WordPress plugin. Until recently, these shortcodes could only be used on the ElegantThemes framework. The universal version can be uploaded to all WordPress installations, including the Genesis framework so that their stylish shortcode graphics and functionality are available for all WordPress site developers. The shortcode plugin is a paid plugin (but for the same price you also get access to all of the themes developed by ElegantThemes).

WordPress is one of, if not the most widely used website building platforms in the world. It grew in popularity largely due to it being free and open source. The above 3 powerful tools are a perfect example of how different developers can create highly functional tools for use on other theme frameworks or have universal application across all WordPress themes.

StudioPress is the company behind the Genesis theme framework. The Genesis theme is used among amateur and professional WordPress web designers. To date they have more than 40 in-house child theme designs for use on the Genesis framework.

StudioPress is no stranger to welcoming third party development to integrate with their theme framework given their 2011 launch of the StudioPress marketplace where non-in-house theme developers can submit and sell child themes for use on the Genesis framework. Currently the marketplace boasts 20 designs and is growing monthly.
