Whether you're a novice or an advanced developer, Genesis provides the foundation that takes WordPress to places you never thought it could go. Because Genesis is much more than a mere WordPress theme; it's an underlying framework of immaculate code that offers three important benefits: SEO, security, and a huge selection of design options. In this course, Carrie Dils takes apart the framework so you can understand the structure and start customizing your own child themes with Genesis. Learn how to set up a development environment and use action hooks to change not only how your theme looks, but also how it behaves. Carrie also shows how to make some of her clients' most-requested theme customizations.

Topics include:

  • Setting up your development environment
  • Understanding the child theme template structure
  • Working with the Genesis loop
  • Working with actions
  • Editing theme styles
  • Making commonly requested customizations
