I just went to download a copy of Thesis ( I had a pro license) only to discover it is no longer being distributed by DIYThemes and I would need to drop another $100 per year for "Focus" after supporting Thesis for many years.

What have others done?  Moved to Genesis?    I really feel abandoned by Chris, regardless of the reasons.  I need to build a new site and am not sure which way to go for a good responsive theme.

 

Thanks

I am sure that you can login to your account and download the latest version of Thesis then just use any skin that you already have. The cost zero.

If you have a problem let me know and I will try and sort it out for you.

You do not need to buy Focus to continue using Thesis. In any case you need Thesis even if you are going to use Focus. It is true Chris is concentrating on Focus but he has assured me that customers like yourself will be supported gong forward.

Make sure you backup before upgrading and making changes.
Best results when one question per thread, link to site, version of WP, Thesis and skin.

Thanks, Keith.

   Would appreciate any help you can provide.  I did log into the site and all I could find was that they "no longer distribute Thesis directly" but if I wanted it I could buy Focus....  Perhaps there is a link I am missing?

  Looking at Genesis now after several years with Thesis.   I really hate all the companies going the way of Adobe and moving to a subscription model.

 

Thanks

I have to laugh when people ask me, "Is Thesis dead?"
 
Thesis has received 13 significant core updates since January 31, 2019.
 
It's the most refined and ALIVE product in the entire #WordPress ecosystem.
 
And Focus is how you can use it on your site: https://diythemes.com/focus/
