Mai Theme is powered by the Mai Engine plugin and was one of the first themes to do so, providing us the ability to update our software without adversely affecting the client website or overwriting modifications made to the child theme.
WPE’s move to make the Genesis Framework free has relieved some of the financial cost of starting a website and the recent change to the StudioPress marketplace has encouraged customers to purchase directly from us. This revenue model change has enabled us to invest more into the development of Mai Theme.
We continue to monitor the position of Genisis and stay in close contact with the leadership of the Genesis Framework. BizBudding, the team behind Mai Theme, also closely monitors WordPress and the transition towards full site editing.
We intend to support any website running the Genesis Framework for the foreseeable future. We are in a position to update Mai Engine to operate without the Genesis Framework. Our customers can count on us to provide a reliable path for performant and secure websites aligned with the future direction of WordPress.
