Christmas is right around the corner, and here at DIYthemes, we’re busy filling our sleigh with Boxes, Skins, and everything else you need to run a killer website.
In addition, we’ve been testing Thesis day in and day out, and we determined that we needed one final update to the core before we could begin shipping our highly anticipated Skins and Boxes.
Let’s take a quick look at what’s new, and then we’ll explore the forthcoming goodies that would even make Santa jealous. [click to continue…]
WordPress 3.5 is scheduled to debut on December 5, 2012, and you’re probably curious to know if your version of Thesis is going to be compatible with it.
Well, I’ve got great news for ya…
Both Thesis 2.0.2 and Thesis 1.8.5 are perfectly compatible with WordPress 3.5, and thanks to some WordPress dashboard tweaks, both versions will appear to run a little bit faster than they did before.
So, no matter which version of Thesis you’re rockin, you’re good to go. Huzzah!
Let’s talk about pain.
Specifically, let’s talk about the pain that we’ve all felt while working with our web designs. If you’ve run a website for any length of time, I’m betting you’ve felt…
- Insecure about giving FTP and WordPress login details to a designer
- Worried about making new design changes or implementing new design elements
- Frustrated by how time-consuming and difficult it is to create a design on a development server and then move it over to a live server
- Devastated when you lost design work and were unable to recover it
Thanks to the new Skin Manager and a clever little feature called Preview Mode, Thesis 2.0.1 is turning these pain points into areas of unprecedented control and stability.
Those negative emotions I listed above? They’re all tied to 3 specific problems—the 3 dragons of web design.
Let’s take a closer look at these dragons and see how Thesis turns web design weaknesses into strengths. [click to continue…]
Late last night, the brand-new DIYthemes web design (and pricing structure) went live.
And I may be biased, but I think it looks AMAZING.
You can now see all of the benefits of Thesis 2.0 (and how they help you).
Before I walk you through all of the changes, and answer your questions, take a look at this quick screenshot:

Last night, just before the clock struck midnight, Chris Pearson released Thesis 2.0.
You can download it when you log in to your DIYthemes membership, but before you do that, read this.
As you’ll soon see, it’s not just a “new paint job.” Chris rebuilt the ENTIRE engine.
The. Whole. Thing.
