WPBeginner, the WordPress resource site founded by Syed Balkhi, has a new look.
Syed completely redesigned the site using Genesis Theme Framework.
It’s a lot more than a new design though, as he totally reworked the site, with documentation and usability in mind.
The redesign includes – tighter look, new guides section, comments section and top floating bar (like TheNextWeb & TheVerge).
Check out this side by side comparison of the homepage — old on the left, new on the right:
The new design is very sharp and clean. Syed also used subtle effects in the background that makes the site look well-organized.
The site is powered by one of the best WordPress Theme Frameworks, Genesis.
In addition to the new site structure, he also added two new sections – “Freebies” and “Videos”. He’s also working on the responsive design that will be available soon for the smartphones.
