Adorable – Genesis child theme for WordPress

adorable genesis child theme for wordpress

If you ever need to remind yourself that blogging is meant to be fun… take a look at Adorable, the latest child theme to hit the Genesis Community Marketplace.

Adorable was developed by Lindsey Riel of Pretty Darn Cute Design and she has succeeded in producing a soft, curvaceous and oh so feminine design with state-of-the-art features running on the rock-solid Genesis theme framework.

The bold, sleek styling and colourful, contemporary design of the Adorable theme makes remarkable blogging in a crowded world a snap.

If Adorable has already pushed your buttons and got your creative juices flowing then head straight over to Studiopress and see the Adorable theme in action.

If you can hang on for a few minutes longer, stay with me and we’ll take a look at Adorable in a little more detail – don’t worry, no nerdy stuff.


Why you should use the Adorable theme for your next WordPress website

We’ll take a look at Adorable’s features in a minute, but first let’s see why you should consider it as the theme for your next WordPress website.

Feminine, fun and looks absolutely fabulous – I know that’s not very scientific, but with so many great WordPress themes out there, you need a theme that will grab and hold attention.

With stylish fonts and gorgeous colour combinations Adorable will give you the edge you need.

Drag and drop by any other name – with this theme, you don’t have to be a coding genius to set up your home page and sidebars.
All you have to do is drag widgets into sidebar areas and type in a few details.

And your home page widgets can contain any information you like.
The demo shows featured posts alongside their featured images, but you can also use text widgets, image widgets, your Facebook “like” box etc
The possibilities are endless and you can easily make Adorable your own with just a few clicks of your mouse.

Mobile responsive – mobile browsing is likely to overtake fixed (or desktop) browsing within the next 2-3 years. That means that in order to future-proof your site, your theme must be mobile responsive.

Adorable provides your visitors with a great browsing experience, whatever device they use, from the widest desktop right down to their mobile phone.

Runs on the Genesis theme framework – clean code, state-of-the-art security, one click updates and built-in SEO settings means that Genesis sets the standard for child theme frameworks.

When you choose Genesis you choose the best of the best.

  2. Hi Keith. Wow. This is a great design!

    I tend to be attracted to the uncluttered themes and browse themes whenever I have to work and am instead wasting time 😉 Really like the Balance Theme for Genesis.

    • Thanks for stopping by Edward
      Kids sites!
      This would be the perfect theme for kids sites… now why didn’t I think of that?

      Let me know when you’re up and running and I’ll pay you a visit.

      • Darn! I was just about to use it on Sark, as I have fell out of love with Optimal and want something brighter. I need to do it before I tell the graphic designer what header to create… heck, I’ll buy it anyway.

  4. I’m new to WordPress and chose this theme because it is, in fact, adorable. I’m having a bit of a hard time with it, though. The default colors aren’t pictured as shown and I can’t seem to get the homepage as shown either. The support forum for this theme is empty. I love the look, but for a new user it is hard to get off the ground. :/

  5. I have the adorable child theme on my wordpress site, and I’ve seen others who use this theme and have dropdown menus from their primary navigation menu bar. Can you point me in the direction of a tutorial to do this?
