Genesis Framework and MyThemeShop, who is better than who?
Just browsing the internet, came across a blog of a friend with a nickname Ngoc Trinh (thuthuatpro.net)saw that she wrote an article analyzing the reasons why she abandoned the theme Magazine Pro running in the background Genesis Framework to switch to using themes Schema belong to MyThemeShop. Ngoc Trinh gave a lot of arguments to support the thesis “MyThemeShop more than Genesis“. Standing on the stance of a user Genesis Framework and Magazine Pro (the custom skinned version), I think, that’s unacceptable. Why so?
Compare Genesis Framework and MyThemeShop
Ngoc Trinh (more precisely the publisher – MyThemeShop) gives speed test results GTmetrix of 4 websites using 4 different theme types (Schema belong to MyThemeShop, Genesis Framework belong to StudioPress, Divi belong to Elegant Theme and Swift Theme) to conclude that Schema is the most optimal.
I do not think so. Structure of theme only plays a part of the factors affecting the speed of a website. You also need to consider the influence of your hosting server (CPU speed, storage hard drive speed), your ability to optimize your theme and the plugins you’re using on your site. If you optimize well, your score is absolutely not inferior to anyone. I will prove it to you right now.
1. Compare speed test results with GTmetrix.com between my blog and Ngoc Trinh’s:
2. Speed test results are equal to tool.pingdom.com:
3. Speed test results are equal to Google PageSpeed Insights:
Now sure Ngoc Trinh And have you guys seen who’s faster? I checked and found Trinh using plugins? WP Super Cache to optimize speed test scores for blogs. This is absolutely not advisable. WP Super Cache combined with BJ Lazy Load it is a disaster. It makes your blog load unstable, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, sometimes images load sometimes not. In fact, the user experience is what matters most. Test scores on the tools are for reference only, do not focus too much on them. Just what you optimize so that when accessing, the blog/website loads quickly and stably. 🙂
Schema has too many HTML5 errors. Magazine Pro is not
HTML5 and CSS3 is the web standard of present and future. They make your blog/website compatible with web browsers and display perfectly on all devices. However, when testing the structure HTML5 for Trinh’s blog (using Schema theme), I found out it had too many errors.
As for Magazine Pro so what? It does not have any errors, not even the slightest.
Genesis hard to customize?
Personally, I don’t find it difficult at all. Genesis Child Theme only a few important files (functions.php and style.css) and you can edit and customize the interface right there. Alternatively, you can enter this to learn code snippets for customization Genesis or refer to articles about Genesis on my blog. To make it even simpler, use the Genesis plugin to customize the interface and add features. The two most popular apps to help you edit child theme Genesis is Genesis Simple Hooks and Dynamik Website Builder.

Schema “stealing” the interface of StudioPress.com?
The color scheme as well as the header of Schema quite similar to StudioPress.com – issuer Genesis Framework.
- The header of StudioPress.com:
- The header of the theme Schema:
The structure of the theme is only one part, the important thing is that you know how to optimize that theme to make it perfect. Don’t focus too much on virtual numbers, pay attention to the actual experience of yourself and your customers. There are things that can be difficult for you but not for others. Please research and think carefully before concluding or evaluating something.
