    Are there any good books on the Genesis Framework that I can learn from?

    You can start here in your my.studiopress.com area with the Beginner’s Guide. Some of the other useful tools and snippets are in the Member area and you’ll have to log in to review those. There’s information on Pre- Genesis 2.0. A paid version with all the Genesis 2.0/HTML5 changes was developed by GaryJ and you can order that here. There are a lot of Genesis guru’s who write excellent free tutorials on particular issues or things people want to learn how to do that is not documented in book format, but on their blogs. You can Google them. And if you are on Twitter – you can use hashtag #GenesisWP to query people on Twitter. And, look at lists.. I have a few great lists of Genesis Experts on my Twitter. I have a short list of people I follow via RSS here.

    Thanks for your reply. I seen the changes book, but I’m not sure that’s what I’m looking for. I may still get it just to have a read through. I like my books.

    What are some of the particulars you are looking for? I am not a coder but have worked with it enough to know who to point you to for direction and hacks. Give me a few items.

    I mainly want to understand it. I only purchased and started to look at it the other day, and most of it is clear. I guess at the moment I’d like to know more about CPT and having custom fields set in these as well as custom fields.

    I had a look at a portfolio taxonomy which works great, but I want to change it from portfolio to another name. But when I do, it doesn’t seem to work unless I change the permalinks to the way they ship out the box with WP, however they work with postnames when named as portfolio. It is confusing me, so I assumed I should get to understand it more so I could see how to fix this.

    Custom Post Types and custom fields aren’t specific to Genesis, those are core WordPress features, so the documentation you’re looking for would be found at http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types and a lot of other places.

    These may also help:

    http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/create-your-first-wordpress-custom-post-type

    http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-use-custom-post-types/

    There are also some tutorials at wp-types.com, but iirc, they might have been specific to using the Types plugin when creating CPTs.

    As for your question, did you look in the functions.php for the theme you bought and try to make your changes to the portfolio post type definition there?

    Thanks for your input. I figured it out. After changing the name from portfolio to something else, the system needs to be put to the default permalink setting and then back to the post name setting for created pages to show.

    I pretty much start with Brad Dalton, and then if I can’t find something. That’s my personal preference but there are others. I also Google the topic using “genesis framework” and that will pull a lot.

    There are others who have been raving about Types Plugin. Here’s a link to a Google list.
