Does Modern News include Genesis Framework?

    I would like to purchase the Modern News Theme from the WordPress site to use with my news related blog. After some research, I found that the StudioPress site noted that it’s News theme (seems to be the same as WP Modern News) included the Genesis Framework.

    My question is this: Does the WordPress Modern News theme include the Genesis framework?

    I feel that it does, considering the News theme from StudioPress is only $24.95 IF you already have the Genesis Framework ($59.95). I just want to be certain, since the cost on the WordPress site is a few dollars cheaper than buying it directly from StudioPress ($75 vs. $79.95). Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is



    Hi there!

    If you purchase the Modern News theme on, it will use the Genesis framework in the background.

    However, if you purchase Modern News for your blog, you can’t download the theme or framework to use elsewhere. You’ll only have access to it on your blog.

    If you want to purchase the framework + theme to use on a self-hosted installation of WordPress, you’ll need to purchase them from StudioPress directly.

    I hope this clarifies!


    Thanks for the clarification. FYI, I have indeed purchased Modern News from, as I do not intend to host the blog elsewhere. Thanks!



    Glad to hear it. :) Hope you enjoy the theme!
