Social Eyes Theme for Genesis Theme Framework Review!


Genesis Framework fans will be pleased to see yet another exquisite addition to the StudioPress theme catalogue, and in this instance we’re looking at the new Social Eyes theme.

Version 1.0 was released on 18th January and was created by Roderick Sauskojus, previously a lead designer at ModThemes.

Social Eyes obviously runs on the Genesis Framework and requires WordPress 3.0, but is also compatible with WordPress 3.0.4

Feature include a 2 colour styles options (blue or pink, which looks more like lilac but that could well be my monitor settings!), the choice of 6 layouts, a fixed width, theme options, featured images and threaded comments. Social Eyes is not compatible with BuddyPress.

Theme Aesthetics

Social Eyes has a great look and vibrant feel to it and the blue tones is easy on the eyes and creates great visual pleasantry on the content itself.

I love the bold RSS, Twitter and Facebook icons in the top right hand corner which I guess backs up its suitable theme name.

Some of the widgets available include recent posts, tags, latest tweets, subscribe to email form, search box and a calendar to name just a few. The theme also includes a dedicated widgetized footer.

You can easily add your Adsense codes or any other contextual ads to the theme by using the text box widgets available to drop html codes.

Summary & Score

Another great SEO optimised theme by StudioPress, 8.5/10
