The DIYthemes website optimization service is currently inactive.

Our goal at DIYthemes has always been a simple one: We want to help you build a fast, standards-compliant website you love.

Of course, this is why we built Thesis, and it’s also why we continue to focus on making it more efficient and easier to use.

But here’s the thing…

This process involves Plugins, tracking codes (like Google Analytics), integrations, and design tweaks, and in almost every case, this requires you to learn a new system—or multiple systems—to pull it all off!

Save Options UI feedback in Thesis 2.4Here at DIYthemes, our goal for 2017 is a simple one: We want to make Thesis smarter and better able to accommodate your website needs.

We already made great strides with Thesis 2.3 and its built-in WooCommerce compatibility, and we also sprinkled in some features and fixes that help Thesis work better wherever you want to use it (staging servers, WP-CLI environments, etc).

With Thesis 2.4, we are pleased to introduce a new saving/response feedback system on Thesis Admin pages and the Skin Editor. Whenever you hit that green Save button, Thesis will tell you exactly what’s happening.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg with Thesis 2.4. Check out the version 2.4 changelog, or else read on for a look at the most important updates in this new version.

In other words, Thesis is a powerful tool you can use to build the high-performance website of your dreams.

That’s great, but let’s face it—what you really need to know is how to harness the awesome power of Thesis!
