Why is the Genesis family of WordPress themes used by developers?
The Genesis Theme framework provides additional theme options for managing how your website appears to visitors. Move away from the traditional blogroll and Widgetize your landing page!
Not sure what Widgetized Home Page means?
Check out our Home Page -> Inforats.com. Through Appearance->Widgets, I am able to manage specific content areas on my landing page to create a more professional website experience. You no longer have to Create a ‘sticky’ post and manage your homepage content via post/page edit.
Check out even more controls and features with Genesis:
- Information. This section is primarily for support and maintenance of your Genesis theme. You can setup automatic updates, update notifications (sent to admin email), and display theme information in your document source files for StudioPress technical support forums.
- Custom Feeds. You can add/remove custom rss and podcast feed URI locations here.
- General Settings. You can set the Genesis header options here to include using a header image or dynamic text and to widgetize the header-right section of your pages. You can also set the default sub-page layout of your Genesis theme here. (For example, sidebar/content, or sidebar / content / sidebar, etc)
- Breadcrumbs. This places a small navigation line at the top of each deep page for visitors to easily navigate out of sub pages. Example: Home>Page>SecondPage>ThirdPage.
5. Primary Navigation. Allows you to set the use of primary navigation and sub-navigation menus (supports up to 2).
6. Content Archives. Manage your websites archived data.
7. Primary Navigation Extras. Allows you to enable extras in an optional right-side sidebar widget including today’s date, rss feeds, search form, and twitter tweets.
8. Blog Page. As with WordPress General Reading settings, you can set the Genesis theme blogroll page attributes here.
9. Secondary Navigation. Enable the use of a secondary navigation menu, set display properties and choose whether to use a custom menu or set attributes such as pages or categories.
10. Header/Footer Scripts. Add additional scripts/content to the header and footer regions of your site. If you would like to change the actual existing content, you will need to use the Genesis Simple Hooks plugin to unhook these regions and change displayed content.
11. Comments / Trackbacks. Enable or disable comments on pages and posts at default settings level.
