Is Thesis theme worth itThere are hundreds of articles online about Thesis theme and thousands of website owners have purchased it (at the time of this writing: 53,529 people).

Why is this WordPress theme so popular? Is Thesis theme worth the premium price?

We’ve been building Thesis blogs and websites for almost 4 years. We’ve been through a lot of Thesis updates including the major one from Thesis 1.8.5 to 2.0.

We’re often asked by our readers and clients what is so special about Thesis (and Thesis 2.0) and how it is different from other WordPress themes?

There are certain things to look at in more detail:



Thesis 2.0  is a powerful SEO framework; it has everything that you need to perfectly optimize your website for search engines including:

  • fast loading code
  • easy integration with Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools
  • easy integration with Google Rel Authos spec
  • settings to help you decide which pages should be indexed and followed, or not
  • meta tags integration
  • support for Markup Schema
  • easy 404 error page integration
  • and more


Thesis 2.0 lets you start your website development experience in 3 ways:

1. You can start building a website from a blank page. That way, you can really let your imagination flow and start from scratch.

2. If #1 is too basic you can start with Thesis classic skin. It has a few simple elements added such as: 3-column layout, header and footer, and nav menu.

3. If #2 still doesn’t suit you because you need better and faster solutions you can choose one of the many beautiful and elegant Thesis skins. They have stunning design and functionality built in. If you want to, you can tweak the skin to make your website even more unique so it will really stand out.

Here are a few examples of Thesis skins:

Thesis lets you build: simple and professional blogs, business websites featuring portfolio pages, e-commerce websites, sales letters, photo galleries, and more.


Thesis is constantly being improved. If anything new comes out for site design, and if there are any new Google web guidelines, the Thesis team will incorporate them sooner or later. Whenever you update Thesis you can backup your current Thesis and skin installation using Thesis built in backup tool.

There is no other framework that combines all of these features.

Are there any disadvantages?

If you’re a WordPress beginner you will probably need to set aside more time to learn how to use Thesis 2.0 than a more experienced WordPress user will. But that applies to all frameworks that help you build WordPress sites. There is always a learning curve.
