Persevero – Free Genesis Child Theme by WPBeginner

WPBeginner is proud to announce our very first FREE theme release. For those of you, who are not following us on twitter, you probably missed our birthday (July 4th). This site is one year old now. Due to this special day, we decided to give back to our beloved users who have supported us through out. We are truly honored for your support and without you this site would not have been where it is. Dronix (@dronixs) from WPBeginner created a Free Child Theme for the best WordPress Framework (Genesis by StudioPress). We released this theme first to our Newsletter Subscribers who got this with other special deals as well.

So lets see what this theme has to offer:

Persevero - Free Genesis Child Theme

Live Demo

This theme has all features that Genesis Framework has to offer. Even though Genesis Framework is paid framework, we recommend that you get it now. There are tons of awesome Child Themes for it (both free and paid). Aside from that, we will be releasing other FREE Genesis Child Themes as well.

If you buy Genesis Framework Package Today (July 5th, 2010), then you will get 2 Additional Child Themes Free. So technically, you are getting 4 child themes. You can use these themes on as many sites you like due to the awesome GPL License. So your purchase can be for 4 different sites :) How can you do this?

1. Purchase a Genesis Child Theme Package
2. Use Coupon: GENESIS2
3. Download Persevero (Our Free Child Theme)

If you don’t want the deal above because you already own the Genesis Framework, then use the link below to download the Persevero Theme.

    The problem with this ‘offer’ is that this is a paid framework. While I can understand the want of money, I can not intellectually support exploiting the open source efforts of Word Press to enrich a handful of individuals. Not to mention running in the face of the movement Word Press has so contributed to. Just imagine if Matt decided that since everyone is getting rich on his efforts he should too and start charging for every install. We could hardly blame him, now could we? And just where would we all be then?

    Why do you think that Genesis is the greatest theme ever?
    I’m looking for a premium theme that’s easy for a non-coder to manipulate and customize, and there’s lots of them out there. Why does Genesis get your enthusiastic thumbs up?

    i really, really want this theme but the code has expired. can you do something about that, pretty pls?

    • Editorial Staff says:

      You can still purchase Genesis Theme, and then download our free Persevero theme. You just cannot get other 2 child themes for free…

  4. says:

    Thank you for sharing this theme. I installed Genesis Framework first, then I installed Persevero theme and I got an error message like “The parent theme is missing. Please install the “genesis” parent theme.”

    I do not understand what the reason is.

    How can I active child theme of Genesis ?

    Thanks !

    • Editorial Staff says:

      You just have to upload genesis in the theme folder, not activate it. You will upload Persevero and activate that, and it should work.
