About this Course
Genesis Framework is the WordPress framework to know. In this course, you'll learn about looking for child themes, looking for Genesis-specific plugins, and checking out its theme settings. Then we will discuss how to pick a child theme to meet a site's needs, gathering tools to setup a child theme for modification, and some really quick mods that include dashboard changes. Finally, using common plugins, SFTP editing some CSS code and a couple PHP functions that are readily available from StudioPress.com, we will encourage you to try new configurations to be unique rather than "cookie-cutter" Genesis.

Jesse Petersen started using WordPress in 2005 and watched it grow from something geeky into the platform that powers over 21% of the Internet. Professionally, Jesse wrote tutorials and tips for people who just wanted to blog and then became the Customer Support Manager for one of the big theme shops where he fielded thousands of site issues and taught hundreds of people how to use WordPress better. Forming Petersen Media Group in 2009, he quickly found the Genesis Framework through knowing its creators and became a preferred Genesis developer in 2010, along with other talented people. Jesse has the heart of a teacher and loves to share his love of WordPress and Genesis with others eager to learn.
