  1. Hello, I am a new genesis user and I’m trying to set it up. In your video you’re showing how to setup and work the child theme, do you have any tutorials on setting up the genesis framework?

  2. I do not find the CODE for copy, because in my dashboard there are no Theme Setup option 🙁 I think Genesis update their dashboad. Would you pls tell me where can I get this code for copy/paste ??

  3. Great tutorial, you explain everything so clearly it’s really easy to follow your instructions. What I didn’t like very much was how the theme was set up, it seems like the developer’s approach to designing this theme was following Joomla’s method of designing static pages. It’s just my personal preference, but I don’t like using widgets to format the overall layout of a single page.

  4. Hi,
    I have already subscribed to your channel. I am looking forward to buying the Genesis Framework and a child theme. But from your video, I learned that it’s better to buy the Genesis framework first and then buy the Child Theme later. Could you please let me know how much the child theme would cost after I buy the Genesis Framework. I think I will buy the Eleven40 Child Theme, and normally that costs like $40.00 when someone buys with the Framework. The second thing that I would be happy to learn from you about the kind of theme that would be most appropriate to build an Amazon Niche review Website, not the kind of site for Authority Website, but to build an Amazon Niche review Website. Since you are an experienced person, I would be happy to learn from you. My email address :

  5. Kind of sad to have to make your frontpage in the widget section.
