Starting out with Genesis themes

have seen so many positive comments at various web sites about Genesis themes so I decided to try it out.

Purchasing the Genesis Framework one gets two things:
– The Framework
– and a simple child theme.

One can of course purchase other child themes from Genesis. I made an overview of these: Genesis child theme list by date of update and here is a list of unofficial Child themes.

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.
