    Genesis has been around for a long time, but unless I am missing something…there seems to be a huge lack of available themes for the years the framework has been around. Any thoughts or possible themes sites specifically for the Genesis framework?

    Thank you.

    You might want to drop a note to them using my.studiopress.com as this is the community forum. This really isn’t the place to ask questions about SP theme development.

    Part of my question was “Any thoughts or possible themes sites specifically for the Genesis framework?”…was intended for input from the community and the first part of my question was just my general observation…

    Thank you for your input.

    @Rooster – there are a number of developers out there who develop themes specifically for the Genesis framework. If you’re on Twitter, follow the hashtag #GenesisWP – that’s where a lot of the developers hang out and publicize their new themes.

    I could give you a number of sites to look at, but my tastes in themes is probably different to yours…

    Rooster, I think quite a few of us are wondering where the new SP themes are. Why this would be an inappropriate topic for “General Discussion” on a Studio Press forum is beyond me.

    I have noticed there doesn’t seem to be as many themes showing at http://my.studiopress.com/community-themes/. I thought there used to be a lot more listed.

    I have purchased themes at http://www.web-savvy-marketing.com/. They develop good Genesis Child Themes.
    I am somewhat disappointed with the lack of new themes here at Studiopress since I purchased a Developer License about 6 months ago.

    Let’s put it this way, I cannot wait until more themes are re-released for pro customers.

    There are a huge range of hundreds of child themes built on Genesis. Not all are listed in the community section however you will find hundreds by searching for Genesis child themes.

    The Pro Plus Package is by far the best investment i have ever made.

    Another vendor for Genesis child themes is ZigZagPress.com. They have some lovely themes and seem to be working much faster than StudioPress at updating them for Genesis 2.0 (or else the lack of communication from StudioPress makes it seem that way). You can see at a glance which themes are now 2.0 ready on their site.

    My only complaint was a lack of follow-up to a question before I bought one of their themes. Since they didn’t respond, I didn’t purchase from them. I may have to go with a non-Genesis theme to get the full site image look that I want.

    I’ve also used Themedy child themes for several clients, and their existing themes work with Genesis 2.0, but they haven’t released any that are updated for HTML5 yet.

    I’ll also throw in my thumbs-up for Appfinite and ZigZag.

    Thanks Summer. It’s nice to have some more places to find great themes.

    I own one theme from Appfinite named Epik and also like what ZigZag have to offer.

    I wish more of the girly themes would go on the Pro side of Studiopress. I have a lot of young female clients and I always have to purchase from the Community Market section because that’s where all the girly ones are.

    @dmodegirl – StudioPress recently hired a female Creative Director, so maybe we’ll see more of a feminine slant on things.

    In the meantime, I think Metro is pretty versatile, and can be easily converted to a feminine theme (I use it on one of my own sites).

    Before I got the Pro Plus package, 90% of the themes I owned were feminine community marketplace themes.
