Way back in 2013 I wrote a post called Why Thesis V2.03 Still Sucks. I’ve never liked Thesis which is why I run in on my Load Of Bullshit blog. Anyway, two years ago I tried to update that blog in the hope that their latest Thesis V2.03 would be better than the one I was running V1.8.6. As it turned out Thesis V2.03 was even more crappier than the one I was running. Shit, it wouldn’t even load. All I got was the white screen of death.
So I hit the Forums in the hope someone there could help. No joy there at all. So I decided to stick with the older version.
Anyway, I’ve noticed of late that Google has been sending out emails about how important it was to have blogs / websites that were mobile friendly. (More about that in the next post). Something had to be done because Google hated the version of Thesis that I was using.
So, some two years later I head on over to the Thesis to download their latest theme. Imagine my surprise when they were still using Thesis V2.03! Surely they would have resolved the white screen of death issue?
So I installed the latest Thesis V2.03 only to find that it still did not work. I still got the irritating white screen of death. Once again their forums were useless!
Thesis V2.03 Is Dead To Me
That’s it! I’ve had enough. I know I paid good money for Thesis but whats the point if it doesn’t do the job properly. I did the only thing I could do. Something I should have done all those years ago when I discovered that Thesis was nowhere near as good as they all promoted it to be. Shit, as far as I was concerned then it’s absolutely crap.
So, I have given Thesis V2.03 and every other Thesis the bullet. It’s now dead to me and will never run one of my blogs again.
I know there are a lot of bloggers out there who will swear by it. But you know what I don’t care. I’m happy that it works for you. It obviously never worked for me.
I’m not fussed though because my Load Of Bullshit blog now runs the best theme ever. FlexSqueeze2!
As always it was so easy to set up. I made the blog even wider than my other blogs with double sidebars on the left. I decided not to have the title in the header opting for integrating it into the header itself. The blog looks so much better. Heck it runs better and yes it’s Mobile friendly.
Don’t forget to look out for my next post where I’ll show you why I thing the FlexSqueeze2 mobile version is so much better than most of the other themes out there.
