Thesis Skins, Markup Schema, and SEO Domination

Thesis Skins from DIYthemes are the most optimized website frameworks available today.

Nobody else offers Skins, themes, or child themes that score as well on Google Page Speed, rank as well in search engines, or boast such a small footprint in terms of both file size and number of HTTP requests per page.

In short, Thesis Skins not only make your site fast, but they also set you up to dominate the search engines by taking advantage of the latest technology.

For example…

Markup Schema

When the major search engines collaborate and issue a new specification like markup schema, you listen.

Here at DIYthemes, we compromise NOTHING when it comes to search engine rankings, and that’s why Thesis has complete support for Schema markup.

It’s easy to add any type of Schema you want to Thesis, but these are supported by default:

  • Article
  • BlogPosting
  • CreativeWork
  • Event
  • NewsArticle
  • Product
  • Recipe
  • Review
  • WebPage

Official Thesis Skins from DIYthemes all come with a default Schema like BlogPosting or Article. As of Thesis 2.5, you can override this default setting by selecting a specific Schema on any post or page!

    I LOVE this markup schema! What a fantastic way to make your site look nicer, without having to pay for a graphic designer. Thanks so much.

    Yep I agree with Angel…Not only does this eliminate the need for a graphic designer, it give you instant control…So it will save me not only money but time.

    Which is more valuable Time or Money…Which one would you pick?

    I love this theme! But i don’t know how to arrange this on my blog.

  • Vivek Sharma November 29, 2013, 1:50 am

    Awesome Theme i have ever seen, lots of people recommend to buy this theme, i am really interested to buy this theme, but i am freaked when i saw the the functions and settings of this theme, seems it would take me more than a month to understand the theme completely.

      Vivek, the Thesis options have been designed to be extremely simple; this way, they are accessible to people of all skill levels.

      While other WordPress themes require you to wade through cryptic template files to make basic changes, Thesis provides you with easy options and a point-and-click way to customize your site.

      Check out this video of the design options, and when you’re done with that, have a look at the content controls that allow you to control the display of certain items in your design.

      I think you’ll agree that it doesn’t get any easier—or more powerful—than this!

        On the Classic Responsive Skin, can an image be used rather than Text Title and Text Tagline?

        • Chris Pearson May 20, 2014, 10:34 am

          Yes, absolutely—the Classic Responsive Skin lets you choose a header image to use in place of your title and tagline if you so desire.

    Excellent theme that i have used before recently i purchased this Thesis theme. Thanks a lot.

  • Mudassir March 2, 2014, 10:56 pm

    Nice I love it and will consider applying on my newly published site.

    Markup schema aiding the design of a site??? Since when?


    • Chris Pearson April 30, 2014, 12:09 pm

      Mike, I never said schema aided in the design of a site. As you probably know, schema is metadata that is generally used by search engines and other crawlers to obtain information about a site, and neither of those things has anything to do with a design aesthetic.

  • Mike Corso May 19, 2014, 8:09 am

    Sorry, Chris, I was replying to Angela (she implied a connection between schema and design).


  • Lisa October 16, 2014, 8:15 am

    I am trying to find out how to make my site responsive. Will this new theme do that if I apply it to my existing blog?

    • Chris Pearson December 29, 2014, 9:27 am

      Lisa, yes indeed—all of our Thesis Skins are responsive and will look fantastic on all devices.

    I subscribe to A Slice of MIT. I receive a copy each day. It uses Thesis.
    Does it use one of your skins as a basis – and then tweek it or enhance it? If not, does someone have something similar or can someone quickly come up with something similar? I like its “do-it-all and get-to-it-all and overview-everything on and from page-one” approach. I think I would want to use it it as a child-theme kinda sorta as a landing page.
    Many thanks … and keep rocking !!

    • Chris Pearson November 13, 2017, 3:51 pm

      John, the Slice of MIT site is using an ancient version of Thesis from 2010, but the design concept in play there is the same as it is with any of our Skins today.

      They’ve taken the basic Thesis design and then applied light customizations on top of it. This is by far the easiest way to build a truly refined, technically superior website.

      All of our Skins are perfectly-suited to be the basis for a customized design, but they also provide extensive customization options that make significant modifications possible from the comfort of the WP Admin.

      In some cases, the only question is which Skin has a default design that’s closest to your desired outcome.

      After working with thousands of sites, one thing we know for sure is that customizations of all types require far less custom code (PHP and HTML, specifically) with Thesis Skins versus other WordPress themes.

    Awesome theme. I m using on my website. it is working smoothly.

  • Yogendra Sharma September 2, 2016, 4:08 am

    I’m thinking to buy this framework because of the fast loading speed. I like to use its skins after that.
