In an effort to help the WordPress community grow and prosper as well as expand and add value to the WP Engine Digital Experience platform, WP Engine recently acquired StudioPress. For our customers, this means, in addition to the Genesis framework, they’ll have access to 35 premium themes. All StudioPress themes are built using the Genesis Framework, are professionally designed, mobile-responsive, and built for seamless use, right out of the box.

Starting this week, we’ll be exploring the StudioPress themes, one by one. This week, we’ll showcase Altitude Pro, a bold and enticing child theme build to work in combination with the reliability of the Genesis framework.

First Things First

What is a child theme? A child theme works in combination with the parent theme. With regards to Genesis, child themes serve as a sort of skin that can change the way a theme looks, while relying on the functionality of its parent theme (in this case, Genesis). Child themes offer users the added flexibility to customize and tweak according to their taste and vision. Child themes can also help speed up the rate of development for both designers and developers.

Altitude Pro

Altitude Pro is a lightweight, well-coded and bright theme. What’ll initially intrigue you is its sleek look enhanced by parallax effects but the flexibility will give your site purpose and initiate the user journey.
