We've released the Genesis Dambuster plugin.  There is a webinar to explain how to use it.  Click the image below to go to the website and register for the webinar using the red button. It's a free plugin and you can use it with Beaver Builder or by itself if you prefer to hand code landing pages.

I use about have Genesis Framework Plugins and half regular plugins. Most of the time I just test out  certain plugins as I get bored easily. Here is a list of my plugins running with the Whitespace Pro theme.

There is a plugin for creating a sticky menu. I think it is Genesis based too.
I'll look into the other plugins. Haven't used either.

Using Altitude Pro:

The front page on this theme as several image sections that use a filter.  I'd like to adjust the filter to create a lighter effect (default is fairly dark).  I'm not sure which portions of the css to fiddle with.  I've been playing with it, but nothing seems to work so far.  Any thoughts?

This is the default image filter css:

.image-section {
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top,  rgba(0,0,0,0.2) 0%, rgba(0,0,0,0.5) 30%, rgba(0,0,0,0.8) 80%, rgba(0,0,0,0.9) 100%);
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,rgba(0,0,0,0.2)), color-stop(30%,rgba(0,0,0,0.5)), color-stop(80%,rgba(0,0,0,0.8)), color-stop(100%,rgba(0,0,0,0.9)));
background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top,  rgba(0,0,0,0.2) 0%,rgba(0,0,0,0.5) 30%,rgba(0,0,0,0.8) 80%,rgba(0,0,0,0.9) 100%);
background: -o-linear-gradient(top,  rgba(0,0,0,0.2) 0%,rgba(0,0,0,0.5) 30%,rgba(0,0,0,0.8) 80%,rgba(0,0,0,0.9) 100%);
background: -ms-linear-gradient(top,  rgba(0,0,0,0.2) 0%,rgba(0,0,0,0.5) 30%,rgba(0,0,0,0.8) 80%,rgba(0,0,0,0.9) 100%);
background: linear-gradient(to bottom,  rgba(0,0,0,0.2) 0%,rgba(0,0,0,0.5) 30%,rgba(0,0,0,0.8) 80%,rgba(0,0,0,0.9) 100%);
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#33000000', endColorstr='#e6000000',GradientType=0 );
display: table;
overflow: hidden;
table-layout: fixed;
width: 100%;
}

WP Themes

Thrive, Visual Composer, Beaver Builder: which one works best for Genesis framework?  They all look very appealing to me, can't decide which one to choose.  

THRIVE - At one point I was trying to stay away from Thrive because I was told my contents would disappear if I remove the plugin (still unsure if this is really the case),  so I feel like my contents will always be held hostage for as long as they are created using Thrive.  However I just read some recent Thrive reviews and it seems that they are constantly improving.   Plus their user interface is by far the most intuitive and user friendly in my opinion. 

Visual Composer - over 500K downloads, they are the most popular out there and it is very unlikely the developer will stop improving or supporting this plugin.  When it comes to web development, I guess it always a good idea to go with the masses.

Beaver Builder - solid reputation among Genesis users, but other than that I really do not know a lot.  The only thing I know is that it is very compatible with Genesis+Dynamik child, and that 's what I am using and that's how i found out about Beaver Builder.

Any feedback or insights to help me decide?

THANKS guys for the feedback.  I am going to take the plunge and purchase Beaver Builder :)   I might very well end up trying all 3 in the end, but I will start with Beaver first,  plus I like what they say here on their website :

"Unlike the other guys, Beaver Builder leaves you in complete control of your content. Other page builder plugins and themes leave a mess behind when you turn them off. Not Beaver Builder. If you ever decide to stop using Beaver Builder, your content will get ported right back into the default WordPress editor."

I just hope that Beaver Builder has a large enough user base to make it worthwhile for them to keep upgrading, improving and supporting this plugin.  It's always a drag when you purchase a plugin and later on realize that the upgrades are few and far between....  One thing I like VC is because of their huge user base, 500K plus that they brag about, but I find their plugin the least intuitive and most difficult to use.

Hi, all. I'm using the Agency Pro theme and I'm trying to do something that should be simple but is turning out to be terribly difficult: for the grid of featured images on the landing page, how might I swap an image to a different image upon rollover? Thanks for any help. This one's driving me nuts.

regardless of the effect your after, your still going to run into the same issue of not being able to show 2 featured images

that whole section works with he genesis featured post plugin, perhaps you could hook another featured images into the plugin, you would have to research that

what if you photochoped your 2 images together so they are one, then with some css you might be able to use a css sprite technique.

Hi, I need advice. I moved from blogger to wordpress. When it was on blogger I hosted some link parties and as a result there are several links linked using linkytools. After the move all the links are showing up as broken links. What should I do?

Will changing those posts to private and putting up a 404 message to help the people landing up from google help? Or should I redirect all those posts consisting of the links to the homepage? (Pardon me if its not a bright idea. I'm a newbie.)

Please advice me on the best way to solve this issue. TIA.

Well the answer is simple… just the same way you chose Genesis over the rest… Let’s see… What is a Genesis starter theme anyways? A starter theme is a Genesis child-theme that helps you build multi-purpose sites. So essentially it’s a base that you build on. And you stay with it because it streamlines your …

The Framework  - 
 
Question for the community: I am working on a site for an IT startup and it has to be SEO friendly and load really fast. I am a Genesis developer and have been for a few years. Recently, I got into a conversation with a developer on Twitter. He claimed that Genesis slows up page loads and that I should start from scratch. Then, there is _underscore which is more of a bare-bones theme I've been looking at.

My question is this: I like working with Genesis because I have a team of folks behind me who make sure that security and latest developments are always pushed out. If I start from scratch, or with a theme like _underscore, I've gone off on my own with only the WP community to support me. 

Have I gotten lazy in my reliance on Genesis to push me more quickly into development? Do "real developers" start from scratch and "own" the theme? 

What are your thoughts on the Genesis framework and page loads?

+1 for not reinventing the wheel. I find Genesis loads fast - compared to other WordPress sites. It is all in how you configure it. Genesis makes it easy to keep things lean and mean while still having a powerful engine under the hood with a solid secure codebase. ;)

Just finished Subtle Patterns Plugin for Genesis. Makes life easy. Test all the backgrounds you like and choose whatever goes with your child theme: https://www.binaryturf.com/wordpress/genesis/subtle-background-patterns-plugin-for-your-genesis-child-theme
I am a fan of subtle patterns. For any background patterns, Subtle patterns is my go to site. These beautiful background patterns and textures simply add to the personality of the website. Light patterns, paper textures, stripes, fabric feel… “Subtle Patterns” covers it all. When I am working on a new design project or perhaps …

Looking forward to hear from you!

Dynamik is great for learning how to code since it has so many helper functionality built right in. Use it to get started or to save time while you get better at coding from scratch. I started with Dynamik, but got to the point where it became more of a hindrance when compared to just coding everything from scratch. I still recommend it, but you might outgrow it at one some joy which is totally fine.

Added new functionality to both premium and free Genesis Club plugins to help with recently removed 301 redirects from Yoast SEO. 

Useful even if you didn't use the 301 redirect functionality in free Yoast SEO plugin as the Genesis Club plugins offer a couple of improvements. 
WordPress 301 redirects were removed from the free Yoast SEO plugin. We've added it into both our Genesis Club plugins. Useful if you used Yoast or not.
