    • Isn’t it! I hardly realized there were so many until I started compiling the list. Really pleased to see all the responsive themes coming from the community. And you’re right – clients think it’s magic! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Cheri,
      The Agency Theme is responsive, but the AgentPress Theme is not. I suspect StudioPress will overhaul and re-release AgentPress sometime after the Genesis 2.0. upgrade.


  1. Carrie this was very useful – some of these themes are ‘hidden’ on the main site. I was considering their $299 one off offer for all current and future child themes this made up my mind!. I think there designs are improving (they can be a bit ‘conservative’) and should continue to do so. The framework of course is rock solid. Thanks again…

  2. I notice that you say that the Modern Portfolio Theme has a portfolio custom post type, but I recently purchased that theme and the custom post type is not included. I noticed that you appear to be using this theme yourself and your site does appear to have the custom post type. Did you add that yourself? Or is the version of the theme currently available to download different than the version you downloaded? Thanks!

  3. Great post Carrie. Thanks! Do you by any chance know if the (in)spyr theme is already HTML5 enabled? I viewed the source code off the demo theme. It appears that it may be but I’m a novice and not sure. Thanks for your time πŸ™‚

  4. nice work Carrie. i like your simple header and layout on this ‘Modern portfolio’ theme. i have experiences with Other template providers but don’t feel assured about investing in them. Theme Forrest seem not to qualify their providers so, if one stops developing, you’re stumped, CyberChimps make it difficult to interact, their demos look good but extra charges are hidden behind them and their themes mostly come with no documentation. i have a few themes now from Studiopress and mojoThemes. for me solid, accountable companies , they as good as you can get. i use.
    My query for you is, i’m looking for blogging themes and landing page themes. i’m using Cyberchimps ‘Delight’ theme. I use it on the WordPress free blog hosted site but… it’s super-inflexible. Will I always find this problem using this host? what can you advise?

    • Do you mean you’re site is hosted for free on or that you have your own install of WordPress on Bluehost? If you’re at, you’ll definitely be limited to theme choices. Otherwise, I wouldn’t consider Bluehost a limitation to what you’re describing – just sounds like the theme doesn’t do what you need.

  5. Hi. Carrie Dils .
    Please Help me out. i want to resize the header height of eleven 40 pro. but when i resize it then my site menus not looking good in mobile device. what i do…?

  6. Carrie, I need some suggestions. I am basically a hobbyist front end developer for non-profits and I think its fun to tweak but I do not have the time or the skills to build my own theme. My question is about Church themes. There just seems to be no real good solutions for churches. I will admit Outreach Pro is a good theme but it is dated and doesn’t really have the more robust futures that churches need (i.e. podcast, video, CPT, etc.). Community Pro looked decent but seems to have disappeared. I did find Exodus by Church themes but I do not really want to leave Genesis Framework. Good suggests would be helpful.

    • What you’re talking about with the custom post types for podcast, sermons, videos, etc will have more to do with a plugin than any particular theme. That’s how Church Themes does things – they have plugins to handle functionality and then their themes have the styles to accommodate the custom features. They’ve also got a hosted solution at As far as I know, they’re a good outfit.

      I think you could probably use one of the Church Themes plugins with any Genesis theme. Just keep in mind it’d be up to you to add any custom styling.

  7. Thanks Carrie. I have been trying to develop my own CPT in a plugin, but its slow going. I have basic functionality right now and have published an early version to WordPress repository. I am working on styling page templates right now but am trying to learn along the way. Used several of your CPT articles to learn. Thanks for all you do for the community.
