    I have a question about developers and how they create custom themes. If I use the Genesis sample as a starting point, rename it as a custom theme and start making changes is that the way to go? Or would I make a child theme of the child theme so changes don’t get overridden when the child theme is updated? So I would change:

    	Theme Name: Genesis Sample - to my new theme name
    	Description: This is the sample theme created for the Genesis Framework. - add my description
    	Author: StudioPress - change
    	Author URI: - change
    	Version: 2.0.0

    Is this ethical? I have a psd I’m trying to incorporate into a custom theme and just trying to figure out the best way possible. I see plenty of tutorials on customizing existing child themes but none on creating a custom theme. Suggestions??

    Genesis Sample Theme is meant to be starter theme. You can change name and other information details to get started with custom theme development.

    Need website customization services or other Genesis / WordPress help ?
