With over 53,000 installations at the time of writing this updated review, Thesis by DIYthemes is perhaps the most popular WordPress theme ever. It’s because Thesis is so much more than a theme. Thesis is a total customization framework at your fingertips.
In January 2013, DIYthemes released Version 2.0 of the Thesis Framework; adding more features and functionality that is immediately accessible to current and new customers alike. The ability to modify and create unique templates is the driving force behind the DIYthemes marketing program, and it has successfully convinced more than 50,000 users to purchase the do-it-yourself framework that gives an enormous amount of flexibility to any beginning programmer – even if they’ve never manipulated a single line of code.

Well…Right before you click an affiliate link to buy the theme. At least you won’t be the only one since some websites suggest that DIY themes generates an estimated $2 million per year from selling Thesis for WordPress.That theme is nothing like Thesis other than in appearance. People don’t buy Thesis because of its appearance. They buy it for its capabilities. You won’t find one single piece of marketing directed towards Thesis on DIY Themes or from any affiliate marketing the out of the box appearance of Thesis. Its about the capability. That’s obvious even from your own review.As for the affiliate marketing, hmmm, I don’t like it either, but DIYThemes are hardly alone here. There’s more of it? There’s lots more sites powered by it? Erm, maybe it does actually work and it’s not all hype then hey!?UPDATE: On October 1, 2012, DIYthemes is releasing Thesis 2.0. This will create huge changes in the way DIY Thesis works. Pricing and options will be changing some time after the upgrade, and we have been warned that DIY does not do sales. So, if you are considering buying a DIY option, now is the time to do it.
