We’ve been developing WordPress Themes for over 3 years now and this is the third major contribution we’ve made to the WordPress community. The first was a Framework named Frugal, then we phased that out to introduce Catalyst, our premier Framework, and now we’ve developed the Dynamik Website Builder for the Genesis Framework.
Packed with Catalyst DNA, Dynamik for Genesis utilizes many of the powerful web design tools we’ve developed for Catalyst and its own version of Dynamik. From the hundreds of no-coding design options, to intuitive page structuring controls that allow you to create an unlimited number of Custom Widget and Content Areas to the fun and super useful Front-end CSS Builder, the Dynamik Website Builder is…well…awesome! 🙂 Read more “Introducing The Dynamik Website Builder For The Genesis Framework”
