I’ve tried to organise this site so you can find the tutorials and information you need. But! If all else fails, use the search button in the navigation bar.
This category contains information, tutorials and blog posts about specific Genesis child themes.
Once you’ve setup your theme you can use these tips to add extra features and functionality to your site.
When I started using The Genesis Framework and StudioPress themes, there were a few things I didn’t understand. I made a note of them and documented what I learned. I made these Genesis Framework and StudioPress tutorials to help you get your site set up with an even shorter learning curve than I had.
You can set up your StudioPress theme in a fraction of the time it would normally take if you use the Widget Importer & Exporter plugin.
Are you struggling to find the best StudioPress theme for WooCommerce? Many StudioPress themes are pre-styled for WooCommerce. If you want the power, security and flexibility of Genesis this is great news.
I’ve used all of the products I list on this page, found them useful and believe the product I got was more than worth the price I paid.
Mai Themes are a recent addition to the StudioPress offering. Mai Themes have many more options than the average StudioPress child theme. But Mai Themes work in a different way. They have a page template called Sections, and they have many shortcodes that enable you to build grids and column layouts. I’ve been experimenting with Mai Themes and at the moment, you can see my test pages here.
Gutenberg is a new post editor for WordPress. It gives you much more control over the look of your web pages and blog posts. But because Gutenberg is so new, not all themes get the full advantage of the new layout blocks provided by Gutenberg. If you’re building a new website, or you know your theme is fully compatible with Gutenberg, give it a try. It really is good. If your theme is older and not able to deliver all of the benefits that Gutenberg brings, you might decide to stick with the classic editor for now. As always with such a big change, test on a backup of your site first, if at all possible.
I have built a whole new website about the Atomic Blocks plugin. If you’re using one of the StudioPress themes that have been re released for the Gutenberg block editor with block based home pages. this site will be useful to you.
