Genesis Theme Basics
We are delighted to have member Yardell Perkins present Genesis Theme Basics, a talk on the pros and cons of this theme family. He'll explain how the child themes work with the Genesis Framework, and demonstrate how to install one of the themes. Perhaps you have heard of the Genesis themes but have not had the chance to try them. Yardell's talk will provide a great opportunity to learn more, ask questions, and dig into the basics. Genesis themes, produced by Studiopress (, are some of the most popular and versatile WordPress themes. Studiopress offers more than 3 dozen premium child themes of their own, as well a few dozen others written by 3rd parties. All use the Genesis Framework to provide a wide variety of website presentations for individuals and businesses in many categories, at a reasonable cost.
