This has left many developers out in the wind trying to figure out how to use the new 2. There is still a ton of support from the community, which is keeping me on board. But, until documentation is released, I have decided to lower the rating on Thesis 2.
The Thesis WordPress Theme has definitely impressed me. Is it worth it?
