Aren’t you tired of searching the web for an SEO friendly, easy to customize theme that provides a ton of support for its users. I’ve done my share of searching and what I hated most about using a new theme was having to customize it, then having to customize it again when the next update to WordPress became available. It was a tiring process until I purchased and installed Thesis – I’ve been through several reiterations of the theme and with each new update it has gotten better and best of all I don’t have to touch the core files so I never have to worry about losing my customization.
Today Thesis 1.8 became available with some great new features that will make you want to switch today.
- New Header Image Uploader
Everyone wants to customize the header of their blog to make it unique and personal, but not everyone knows that the header should be clickable, css-based and optimized for SEO and now they don’t have to. With Thesis 1.8 you just need to upload your desired header image and everything else is done for you.
- SEO Character Count
Because search engines only show a specific number of characters in you
- New Google Fonts
I’ll be the first to admit that I never even heard of the Google Font Directory, I’m pretty sure I’m using a universal font but it never occurred to me to check. Now with Thesis 1.8 you have access to 28-web fonts for free. And because they are served directly from Google servers, you can stop worrying about browser operating system conflicts
- WordPress Nav Menu Support
Now you can finally is the new navigations menu builder offered with WordPress 3.0. If you haven’t upgraded you should check out wordpress.org.
- Category/Tag/Taxonomy Page Options
With this new version of Thesis you will be able to add unique headlines and content to every category, tag or taxonomy
- Favicon Uploader
Favicons are a great way to extend your site’s brand and Thesis 1.8 contains a simple favicon uploader you can use to add to your site.
- Custom Loop API
This is probably the most interesting new update to Thesis, the ability to customize a Loop. The Custom Loop API allows you to target and modify the content area of every type of WordPress page. I haven’t played with this option yet – but it is on my to-do list. And if it does what I think it will do, I’ll have a new updated homepage. Yeah can’t wait.
If you are looking for a theme that is customizable, easy to use and provides an easy to read guid and helpful forum then you should install the new version of Thesis today. Please visit www.diythemes.com for more information.
