I’m about to purchase the Genesis framework and a mobile responsive theme (it appears the free sample theme isn’t mobile responsive, which is very important for my starting point) and have a few questions from the active community here.
I’ve been building a site for some time, and am going to redo the design on the Genesis Framework. I have a general idea of the design (though I’m not stuck on it at all), and wanted to know which mobile responsive Genesis theme you guys thought would be the best starting point for editing. I’ve personally been thinking of picking the Metro theme, but I don’t know if it’s missing any bells and whistles Genesis has to offer / if there are better starting points.
Just to be sure, when I get a child theme, I edit those files directly, correct? I assume I don’t have the Genesis Framework, then a child theme, then a child of that child theme, but who knows.
Here’s the original site – http://towerofgreed.com/ (test domain for now)
Thanks for any input!
Hello, the sample theme is actually mobile responsive http://www.genesisframework.com/ I have used this as the starting point for several themes and it works great. The navigation menu is responsive but some of the latest themes such as eleven40(http://my.studiopress.com/themes/eleven40/) comes with a dropdown responsive menu which is pretty cool.
Yes you are correct in assuming you will edit the child themes files directly. You cannot create a child them of a child theme. There is a way using a plugin approach that I have read on but never gave it a try. If you are comfortable with making edits then you shouldn’t have a problem with using the sample theme. Good luck!
Thanks a lot for the information, I’ve got what I need to make a decision.
