Most vacation rental owners and managers have no idea that WordPress has transcended being a simple blogging platform and turned into a full fledged content management system for vacation rentals. Even I was surprised at how easy it was to use WordPress to create great looking vacation rental websites.
However even with the large number of “themes” (both free and “for fee”) available for WordPress, there really aren’t many good vacation rental themes for WordPress. Additionally, if you are concerned about building a Search Engine Friendly vacation rental website, then there some limitations to WordPress which can be frustrating.
Enter Thesis. Thesis is a framework for WordPress. It is like a theme, but much much more powerful. Thesis transforms WordPress and makes it MUCH easier to custom the look and feel of WordPress to develop very powerful Web 2.0 vacation rental websites.
Thesis is installed into the /wp-content/themes directory just like any other theme, but then you can also install a skin on top of Thesis which really takes WordPress to the next level.
Below are some examples of websites we’ve developed using Thesis (and are also integrated with Lodgix.com, using our vacation rental WordPress plugin). If you’d like more information on having Lodgix design and develop a vacation rental website for you, please fill out our questionnaire and email it back to us. Pricing is more reasonable than you might thing for a completely custom site!
