Pretty Young Thing Now Available on WordPress.com

We are very proud to announce that the very first Genesis + Child Theme combo is now available for WordPress.com users. As of this morning, the Pretty Young Thing child theme can now be purchased and deployed across their network of sites.

WordPress.comA month ago WordPress gave users a chance to stand out from the crowd by using a premium theme. We’re excited that StudioPress was asked to join the party, and are thrilled that the Pretty Young Thing is the first theme there.

This is something we’ve been hoping for quite some time – as we’ve been asked on a number of occasions if Genesis can be used on WP.com. As of this morning, we’re finally able to say YES!

Check out the Pretty Young Thing demo on WordPress.com… and here’s a reminder of what makes the Pretty Young Theme so cool:

The Genesis Grid Loop

The Pretty Young Thing child theme is the first of many themes that will utilize the Genesis Grid Loop that was include as part of Genesis v1.5. The Grid Loop was a custom function that was written to display featured posts on the top of a homepage, and then display a grid-like area of post excerpts at the bottom. The WordPress.com version of the Pretty Young Thing theme will support this.
