If you don’t know what Genesis is you might want to check out some of my previous posts to get up to speed:
There are several plugins you will need on every website. The nice thing about Genesis plugins is that they can be installed directly from the WordPress repositories. If you have ever installed a WordPress plugin then you can install these plugins!
- Genesis Featured Page Advanced – An advanced version of the Genesis – Featured Page widget. Allows you to add a custom image, custom content, page excerpt, and more.
- Genesis Responsive Slider – This plugin allows you to create a simple responsive slider that displays the featured image, along with the title and excerpt from each post.
- Genesis Simple Edits – This plugin lets you edit the three most commonly modified areas in any Genesis theme: the post-info (byline), the post-meta, and the footer area.
- Genesis Simple Hooks – This plugin creates a new Genesis settings page that allows you to insert code (HTML, Shortcodes, and PHP), and attach it to any of the 50+ action hooks throughout the Genesis Theme Framework, from StudioPress.
