For the past year I’ve been using the Genesis Framework plus the Lifestyle Child Theme, and now I’m excited to share that StudioPress has released a FREE PDF guide called Genesis For Absolute Beginners that explains exactly how to install and set up the Genesis framework for WordPress, plus child themes to make your blog or website look amazing, run smoothly, get found in search results, and more!
Here’s an excerpt from Genesis For Absolute Beginners:
Think of Genesis (the framework) as your car, including the engine, the transmission and the thousands of parts that make it run. The dozens of child theme designs from Studiopress are the paint job that make your car so damn hot. You pick the color, the stripes, and an airbrushed coyote howling at the desert moon (if that’s your thing). Here’s where the car analogy breaks down a bit: the really cool thing about using child themes is the ability to change the “paint job” of your site in minutes, without trashing the underlying engine that powers your site. Whether you’re building a new site, or revamping a classic, child themes allow you the freedom to re-invent yourself without ever touching the critical code underneath.
Once you’ve read through the Genesis For Absolute Beginners guide, head over to StudioPress.com to get started with Genesis. You’ll find 44 child themes to give your blog or website the “paint job” you’re looking for. And if you need help, just register for the StudioPress forums and post your question. I’ve gotten TONS of help tweaking my blogs there.
