Lisa Sabin-Wilson announced today that all themes from Allure Themes will soon all be available as Genesis child themes, in addition to the Allure Foundation framework. This move, Sabin-Wilson says, is part of an overall plan to port each Allure theme over to various WordPress theme frameworks, including Builder and Headway.
Two of Allure’s seven released themes are now available as Genesis child themes, with the rest receiving ports by the end of May. She wrote in her announcement that while April was all about launching, May is all about starting the porting process with Genesis:
My first order of business here during the month of April was to launch this site with an offering of 6 themes, initially – since than, I have added on one additional theme, with the intention to add more in the coming weeks. The month of May will see all Allure Themes ported for use as child themes for the Genesis Framework by StudioPress and, to that end, I have already ported two Allure themes that are now available as Genesis Child themes: April and Dabble.
By porting the themes over to various theme frameworks, Sabin-Wilson is removing barriers that may keep potential customers from buying. Those WordPress users loyal to one framework over another will still have the option to pick up an Allure design via a child theme. What do you think of this technique, and do you expect that we’ll see other theme designers picking up on this idea and releasing themes for multiple frameworks?
And the rejected headline for this post was: “My your Genesis is quite Alluring today”. You’re welcome.
