    Genesis people

    First post. Hi all.

    I’ve just come over from Catalyst Dynamik.

    But I think it may be best for me to go pure Genesis.

    My (half-built) community site will be highly customized.

    Genesis 2.0.1 is the active theme. (Can’t see any custom.css file)

    Do I need a child theme?

    If so, are there free ones? If not, what is the best for completely customized CSS, hooks etc?

    Or am I completely wrong and don’t need a child theme?!

    You do need a child theme – you never want to make changes to the Genesis framework.

    Try the Sample child theme – it’s in your downloads – it is basically the look and feel of the Genesis framework, but designed for you to customize.
