The StudioPress WordPress themes are fully customizable if you have the time to edit the codes and add your own function, options, and widgets. Or simply, change the colors to suit your business and site needs. The Agency Pro theme is one of these famous products, and it comes with great SEO options, and I rarely see those options in Genesis child themes.
If you’re a fan of StudioPress, you already know that their themes are simple, clean, well coded, and they come without full control panel like the ThemeForest designs, where you can edit anything from your dashboard. But this one broke the rules and include the full-page of SEO settings. So, you can add your site description, keywords, and all the other details.

There is no better option to review the Agency pro theme than showing you the options that you have inside the WordPress dashboard. Watch the following demo video to see how the theme options look like in-depth.
That will give you a clear idea, and you can decide to use the theme or another one, based on your needs and project characteristics.
Agency Pro theme features
Agency pro is a business WordPress theme that can be used for a company website or blog, and it’s an HTML5 theme first. That means you get all the benefits of the new schema markup structure that lets you add data to your search engine snippet previews. And even, let search engine understand your content better.
The theme has six different layouts, the left sidebar with content, the right sidebar, the content with both sidebars, or the full-width content option.
Custom background and header Uploader
You can add your own logo image in the header section, by default, and the logo must be in 300 by 60 pixels. But you can change that in the theme functions file, if you have some knowledge, or ask someone to help.
You can also, upload your own background image that looks like the demo version on the StudioPress website. At the same time, you can just add colors instead of images, and in that case, click the color picker tool inside the theme options, and add your custom colors.
The Agency Pro WordPress theme comes with 5 colors. The default one, the Blue, Green, Orange or the Red color. You can select that from your “theme settings” under the Genesis menu at the left of your WordPress admin area. Please remember that every color has its own customizations such as the link colors.
If you’re happy with the default settings, then, forget the matter. If not, you can edit your link colors manually, using your browser and just find the exact element and make the changes, by adding your custom CSS codes.
Theme with post featured image
You can enable the featured image options in the “Theme Settings” section. Then, scroll down and find “Content Archives” as the following screenshot, and check the option and select your preferred featured image dimensions.
Of course, this top rated WordPress theme as all the other StudioPress products is responsive. So, it looks professional with all the major desktop and mobile devices. Don’t worry about the layout, you can try the theme flexibility yourself by changing your browser dimensions manually, and see how the theme adjusts itself automatically.
The theme includes basic settings, and you can extend them by adding your own options, I recommend a Genesis child themes plugin. You will get some suggestions and good tools to add to your site and make it better.
As you can see, the Agency Pro Theme comes with lots of options, compared to the other Genesis child themes. It’s not easy to customize if you don’t have the time and some CSS knowledge. However, if you can hire a developer, especially, for Genesis child themes, you can extend your theme and make it your own at 100%, with options and layouts.
That seems a good choice for people with some budgets or designers. But, it’s not the case for the others who need to save money for their startups. The theme price is not cheap compared to any other themes like ThemeForest products.
If you add the development cost to all that, you need to some investment if you want to create a fully customizable theme.
In the second case where money plays an important role, and you need to save, I recommend the above two options. ThemeForest, for example, is the largest marketplace for WordPress themes and plugins.
