Genesis has released a new 2.1 version. . Some of the settings have been moved to the WordPress Customizer, and one feature has been removed entirely for new installs. Plus, the new version has a few performance enhancements as well. See all of the changes in this quick video.
Genesis is the most powerful and flexible WordPress frameworks available. It is the only one I use and recommend, and with good reason. Take a video tour of Genesis, including what the framework is, the extra benefits you get by using it, how the home pages of child themes are built, special widgets and plugins that are made specifically for Genesis, and more.
I’m excited to check out the new themes from Yoast. They’re built on the Genesis framework, and that’s just where the goodies start. There’s a new theme customizer, new built-in widgets, and more.
All site designers belong to a secret club. We talk about our headache site owners. Some of you reading this today are those clients. We don’t call out names in our club, but we do dish the dirt. We have to, otherwise we would run screaming down the street, pulling our hair out. Why? Because you make us crazy. We have a club because misery loves company and we feel better knowing we’re not the only ones with clients that drive us nuts. I’m going to spill the beans and tell you what your designer won’t so you can avoid being that client we talk about.
The Minimum Pro theme has been released at StudioPress. It is now HTML5 compliant and had a bit of a facelift. This theme makes use of a few different items than other themes, such as a technique called Backstretch on the big image on the front page, as well as a two-widget combo with a special plugin to get those nice big social media circles on the home page too.
“I’m on a tight budget.” That’s what I hear from most new site owner wannabes. There is no other industry where you can open a legitimate business with no money and no education on how to run it. But too many site owners fall prey to buying into the hype of doing just that. They expect everything to be cheap or free and somehow be successful on sweat equity alone, while grabbing every shiny new thing some guru said works. Free is not free for long. You’ll pay for it dearly, to the tune of thousands of dollars. Let me show you exactly what I mean with real-world examples.
See which author shortcode is best to use for authorship in this quick video tutorial. Plus, I’ll show you the trick of where it gets its info, and how to set that up properly too in your User info.
Links for the byline that display below your post have two issues on Genesis themes. One is a security risk and the other is bug that started when Genesis 2.0 was released. The latter one will affect anyone who has updated to the Genesis 2.0 framework, but still has their original theme that has not been updated for the new schema markup yet. In this quick video, I’ll show you both issues and how they affect your site security and Google authorship. Plus, I’ll show you a super fix that you just may want to keep, even after they fix the bug.
