Genesis 2.0 Out Now!

Genesis, one of the most popular theme frameworks for WordPress, has just received its latest revamp and is now available on the StudioPress website.

The new version is full of HTML 5 goodness but also packs much more than that.

The first new feature that will catch your eye is the default Genesis design. It has been completely revamped to run even better as a stand-alone theme for your site, if you wish to use it that way.

And yes, it is completely mobile responsive.

But the improvements in Genesis 2.0 are far more than just cosmetic.  And the two most prominent and empowering under-the-hood changes being Genesis 2.0′s support for HTML5 and schema.org markup.

With built-in support for schema.org, Genesis 2.0 allows you to enhance your site’s search engine optimization and results display through proper classification of the most important and defining elements on your pages.

Accompanying the release of Genesis 2.0 are two themes that capitalize on Genesis’ newest features.

Sixteen Nine lets your verbal and visual personality shine through while proving that design can be simple and stunning. A custom background, mobile responsiveness, and HTML5 are the base on which you can build a look for your site that rises above all others.

With the new updated version of the eleven40 theme, form and function converge to create a look that will draw your readers in no matter what device they are on. The intelligent design of eleven40 incorporates mobile-responsive flexibility and HTML5 to deliver the right look at the right time.

    Hi Jean, wow, amazing to see how many post your team is making, and amazing to see how much is happening in the WP world to talk about 🙂 In the post you mentioned “With built-in support for schema.org, Genesis 2.0 allows you to enhance your site’s search engine optimization and results display through proper classification of the most important and defining elements on your pages.”. Could you give some examples of that? How exactly does this work from an end-user’s practical perspective? Would love to hear that – GJ
