Want to create your own custom child theme for the Genesis Theme framework? The easiest way is to start with the Genesis sample theme, and start hacking away.
- Download Genesis Sample Theme from Studiopress Member downloads.
- Upload to your WordPress website’s themes folder & activate in the admin panel. (Must also have Genesis Framework theme installed.)
- Make it your own!
Want to impress your client with a branded custom theme? You can take a couple of extra steps to personalize the theme.
Brand the custom theme:
- change folder name to custom theme name (no spaces, use dash if more than one word)
- delete or replace screenshot.png (880×660 suggested size)
- update style.css theme information at the top of the page
- functions.php (replace genesis-sample theme mentions with custom theme folder name)
