    I have much more appreciation for those who build websites from PSDs. I am grateful that I own Genesis Framework and can easily modify the StudioPress themes.

    This was an extremely valuable overview of the building of custom WP themes using the Genesis framework. I hope that we can go further into the details in future meetings.
