Warning: Currently this theme is only compatible with Thesis 1.x and NOT Thesis 2.0+. If you’re looking for a responsive skin for Thesis 2.0, check out the Grind Theme which is Thesis 2.0+ compatible or check out this post.
Thesis from DIY Themes is currently was one of the fastest, most efficient, SEO (search engine optimized) premium themes out there. (Update Nov, 2012: while it still performs well on the front end, Thesis 2 is much more of a mess on the backend than 1.8 was. If you already have a Thesis license, I’d recommend 1.8 + this theme, else go with a different theme/framework).
One major problem that has been plaguing Thesis, though – is that a lot of the child themes – or “skins” as Thesis calls it – are just plain ugly.
And if you’re looking for a responsive Thesis skin (child theme), forget about it. You have very few choices. Enter Reactiv.
Reactiv is one of the best looking Thesis skins out there – and it’s responsive! Take it for a test spin (click the demo button above) and see for yourself.
To run Reactiv you will need Thesis already installed. If you don’t already have a license, I would just go with another theme. There have been many complaints about Thesis 2 so I can’t in good conscience recommend it.
Additional Reactiv Features:
- optimized for iPhone and iPad along with desktops & laptops
- Color schemes: default, green, red, blue, brown, plain dark
- Slider with captions (optional)
- Landing page template
- Portfolio options
- PSD file includes
- Muli-browser tested
