WordPress In-Depth: Genesis Framework
Get a grip on this powerful, customizable WordPress Theme Framework.
The Genesis Theme Framework from StudioPress, is a flexible, powerful, secure and responsive tool for building great-looking, functional websites. It also take a little bit of getting used to its child themes and plugins, which add even more power.
In this hands-on support-group style workshop, we will build and enhance your Genesis-based website. Bring your website, with content and graphics. Please pre-purchase your child theme if you are ready to build.
We will cover a range of topics including using various plugins to provide site operator customizations, building and changing child themes, building new templates and working with hooks and filters.

- Bay Area Bike Rentals (http://bayareabikerentals.net/) - We started with the Focus theme, and changed the styles to match this distinctive black and crimson palette.
- Collaboration Zone (http://collaborationzone.com/) - Consultant and trainer Liz Williams wanted to add Premise to her site, so she converted to the Focus theme for easier and better integration and membership management. This theme has some visual changes from Focus.
