I am in the download area and see Genesis 1.9.2. But I see references to Genesis 2 in this forum. Where would I find it? Is it till in beta or can it be used on a live site?July 31, 2013 at 3:24 am #53345
Genesis Framework (Release Candidate) StudioPress v.2.0-RC2 Get Started
Or you can install the Genesis Beta tester plugin.
Its ok to install on a live site.

I have already installed 1.9.2. Is there a way to update it using Genesis inside WP? THought I might as well develop on the latest version.July 31, 2013 at 4:04 am #53354
Yes. Install the Genesis Beta Tester plugin. http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-beta-tester/

Yes, I can't wait. I went through all the tutorials on how to update CSS to be HTML 5 compliant. Running Gen 2 beta and tried to update Metro CSS and site layout falls apart. Just tweeted Brian to see if all themes will come HTML 5 compliant with Gen 2 roll out. Fingers crossed. I don't want to have to update Metro after we have highly customized it.August 3, 2013 at 2:56 pm #53980
As much as I'm bummed that Genesis 2.0 and the themes weren't ready at the same time as WordPress 3.6 (and 3.6 took forever to release), I'd be even more bummed if they released it without updating the themes to be compatible with HTML 5. I want everything to just work.
That's why I'm not bothering with the beta plugin or a release candidate. Just cook faster and let me know when the whole thing is ready.

Word on the street is (via Brian's tweet), Gen 2 will be released with new themes and only the top current themes will be updated to HTML 5.
William, I think I may just uninstall that beta plug in too. I agree. I want something that just works and is stable. I am hoping Genesis 2 is it.
Will see how much work we may have to re-do since we have started customization of Metro already.August 3, 2013 at 9:20 pm #54029
My designer just installed Genesis and Metro for me a couple weeks ago. Does this new Genesis 2.0 mean I now have to pay her to upgrade me and update Metro? I sure don't know how! lol...thanks....new to all this.August 3, 2013 at 9:23 pm #54032
You don't have to update to HTML 5 but if you do, its very easy.
August 3, 2013 at 9:55 pm #54036
I also think you'll find many of the popular themes or even all of them will support HTML.
Its a 2 minute job converting SP themes out of the box to support HTML 5.

Hey Brad, I followed a detailed tutorial that even included a link to a CSS converter tool. I followed it, updated the CSS file. I think it looked for # and changed it to . in the CSS file and it just flat out broke the layout for Metro. Yes, it was a 2 minute job but it did not work when I did it.August 3, 2013 at 10:34 pm #54039
Understand. Was it a fresh download of the theme or an existing copy which has been modified?
August 3, 2013 at 10:57 pm #54040
I think you'll find you'll have access to a HTML 5 version early next week which you can install locally and test before updating.
Don't forget, you also need to change to the new loop hooks. I doubt this would cause any real issues.

Thanks for the link brad. All the more reason I don't want to continue to develop on a theme that is not HTML 5. It's sort of hurry up and wait at this point.
