- Contemplating moving over to Genesis, lately Themeforest has been a nightmare.Jan 18, 2013
- Do it Tish! Make the move! You'll be pleased you did.Jan 18, 2013
- Looks nice! Just need t turn off that mobile theme plugin so it loads the responsive version.Jan 19, 2013
- I started a development on Genesis but having a hard time finding a child theme I loveJan 19, 2013
- I've found that adapting child themes is pretty easy. It's just a question of changing the CSS, and you can pretty much make any theme unrecognizable visually, so don't be put off by that. More important is functionality - do you want a portfolio page or a contact page, or a landing page?
Even that is just a question of copying and pasting code snippets to functions.php. I'm a long way from being an actual php dev, but have been able to graduate from redesigning themes (http://marginhancers.com or http://jerseyvillerentals.com) ...
to combining them (http://frontenactennis.com) ...
to finally building a child theme of my own (http:tennis-booker.com) that started with actual thumbnail sketches.
So if you have an idea of what you'd like it to look like, you can get there, and I think Genesis will be the shortest, straightest path.Jan 30, 2013
- Also, Tish, Themeforest has changed their licensing - no more GPL other than lip service. Granted, that only really affects WordCamp volunteers and organizers in any serious way, but it's something to think about if you care much about the GPL. I don't know where I do or don't, but i tend to line up on the hippy-dippy side of things when push comes to shove.Jan 30, 2013
