I nearly called this post “Catalyst meets Genesis” because that’s what it’s all about.
Let me explain.
Some time ago I looked at a WordPress theme framework called Catalyst and I was pretty impressed.
The great thing about Catalyst is that it was built for non-coders.
It allows you to produce the website you want… without spending the rest of your life learning oodles of code.
In short Catalyst is a “Web Design Toolkit” for the non-coder.
But we only have eyes for Genesis here at WM Web Design, so I waved a sad farewell to Catalyst and that was the end of that.
And then recently I came across a website building tool for the Genesis framework called Dynamik, and who was it produced by?
You’ve got it in one… the same guys who produce Catalyst.
Dynamik Website Builder for Genesis looks like a great resource, but before I point out a few of its features, take a look at the introductory video, which covers the design options page – the quality of the video speaks volumes for the quality of the product.
Wow… over 800 non-coding options covering fonts, colours, margins, padding, widths and a whole lot more, all laid out in a logical and easy to follow order.
And that floating “Save Changes” button and updating without reloading the page are a couple of great time saving touches.
Whether you’re a total beginner who wants to be able to customize their site design without coding knowledge or a Developer looking for an efficient design solution for their growing web development business, the Dynamik Website Builder delivers.

Time to move on to the layout of your home page.
Your home page is your most important page, because by definition, it’s the page people see first.
Getting the layout of your home page just right can be just about impossible, unless you have coding skills.
This second video shows you how easy it is to get the layout you want with just a few clicks of the mouse using Dynamik.
49 layout options plus the addition of the Home page Slider, Feature Top and Fat Footer give you enough choices to produce your perfect home page.
Love the way the layout options are numbered for easy reference and the Examples Tool Tips is a great way to display the various page layouts.
49 layouts plus the Feature Top AND Fat Footer Widget Areas, each of which offer up to 4 widget areas side by side and allow for 1-click placement on your home page, your website Posts, your website Pages, and your Blog Template.
Dynamik website builder gives you the power of responsive design
With more and more people browsing using mobile devices, it’s important that your website is fully mobile responsive.
This third video shows you how to make your Genesis website mobile responsive using Dynamik.
Great explanation and demonstration of responsive design and so easy to implement.
A simple one click solution, which would apply in most cases, plus the ability to fine tune different parts of your website if you need it.
