    I am just getting my feet wet with Genesis. I downloaded the Genesis Sandbox, as it is very well commented. However, how do most people approach these projects? I have an idea and design in mind as to what I want my site to look like. i.e. a bar on top, then the header, and to the right of the header a widget, etc. Is there any good documentation on creating these child themes? It is a lot of information overload right now.

    The best way to learn about the child themes is hands on, you’ll see a lot of info from all over the web but the best way is to get your hands dirty and see how the themes are made.

    This community forums is the best start

    Thanks! One thing that confuses me is that the landing page – I modified that template, and it is supposed to remove headers etc, but I see everything still there.

    Ideally, I want my landing page to just be a header, no menu, a widget underneath the header, and then my blog posts.

    /** Remove Header */
    remove_action( ‘genesis_header’, ‘genesis_header_markup_open’, 5 );
    remove_action( ‘genesis_header’, ‘genesis_do_header’ );
    remove_action( ‘genesis_header’, ‘genesis_header_markup_close’, 15 );

    /** Remove Nav */
    remove_action( ‘genesis_after_header’, ‘genesis_do_nav’ );
    remove_action( ‘genesis_after_header’, ‘genesis_do_subnav’ );

    That should have removed headers and nav, but I dont see that reflected at all. Additionally, if I turn on breadcrumbs in the UI for Genesis, and then I try and remove it using remove_action on the landing page, the breadcrumbs are still there

    If you are using the Genesis Sandbox by Jonathan of Surefire Themes, you may want to ask Jonathan. I’ve noticed lately that theme developers are adding in their own specialty code and some snippets are not playing nicely. So I would inquire with him about your code.

    My biggest issue is that the following lines in my landing page template are not working:

    /** Remove Nav */
    remove_action( ‘genesis_after_header’, ‘genesis_do_nav’ );
    remove_action( ‘genesis_after_header’, ‘genesis_do_subnav’ );

    In functions.php, I have the following:
    add_theme_support(
    ‘genesis-menus’,
    array(
    ‘primary’ => __( ‘Primary Navigation Menu’, CHILD_DOMAIN ),
    ‘secondary’ => __( ‘Secondary Navigation Menu’, CHILD_DOMAIN ),
    ‘footer’ => __( ‘Footer Navigation Menu’, CHILD_DOMAIN ),
    ‘mobile’ => __( ‘Mobile Navigation Menu’, CHILD_DOMAIN ),
    )
    );

    If I comment out the primary line, then the menu disappears. Is there a reason that it is persistent?
