This week was a differently-flavored episode of Genesis Office Hours. I’m in the same house with Chris Lema and Andrew Norcross, so instead of each of us patching in, we joined as a panel from one computer to broadcast GOH from Lincoln Beach, Oregon (we’re here for #BeachPress – it’s like a WordCamp, but much smaller, lots co-working, and a more relaxed schedule).
This episode we addressed fewer questions than usual, but had the opportunity to go more in-depth. Randomly, if you watched and noticed my overuse of the phrase #hashtag, it’s because of this video.
Here we go.

Themes & Plugins
- Genesis Design Palette Pro – Plugin by Andrew Norcross to customize colors, backgrounds, fonts, sizes, margin/padding and more for Genesis child themes without touching the code.
- Genesis Extender – Plugin by Erik Hamm to add custom CSS, PHP, home page layouts, widget areas, etc to your Genesis child theme.
- Flint theme for Genesis – an HTML5 Genesis child theme that includes lots of style options to control theme actions, filters, typography, color, imagery and more. (Carrie’s note: I haven’t used the theme, but someone mentioned it in the chat)
- Web Savvy Marketing Genesis Themes (Check out the latest “Deborah” theme named for Debbie Saro)
- StudioPress Showcase – Great place for design inspiration or helping people imagine how a theme could be customized.
