I decided to try out Genesis Themes
as I have seen so many positive comments at various web sites.
Purchasing the Genesis Framework (affiliate link meaning if you purchase a theme through it I get a percentage) one gets two things:
– The Framework
– and a smple child theme.
The framework “acts as a platform on which your WordPress web site can be created”
– From the Genesis for beginners pdf manual.
The child theme is where one makes modifications, and will not be changed when updates to the framework arise.
I decided on downloading the child theme Metro. To customize the heck out of it.
I have added a bunch of Genesis tutorials and more will be added.
