i have bought and installed genesis and am learning how to use it on one of my sites (freddieomm.com)
i have a subdomain for another, separate site (also registered/hosted on bluehost) which i want to build up from scratch.
but i cannot figure out how to activate or import the genesis software so it will work on that site...
does anyone know how i can do this?

Install WordPress in your sub domain using Simple Scripts and upload Genesis to the new installation.

i've been trying to do that but am getting nowhere.
if i go to my subdomain page on bluehost there is no option there to install wordpress.
if i go into simple scripts i get to the page saying i've installed wordpress (as a "script") which i did for the first site - and when i log in to the admin there i don't find any options to install wordpress for the second site either.. where should i be looking?March 21, 2013 at 4:37 am #29887
Create the sub domain first.
Then go to Simple Scripts and select the sub domain from the drop down list to install WordPress.
If you get stuck, Bluehost offer a 24/7 online chat.

Okay, I have installed WordPress for the subdomain and can get to the admin page for the site.
How do I now install Genesis and the Genesis Sample?
When I go to Appearance > Themes I get a page of WordPress themes but there is no link to Genesis -
and when I go to Tools > Import I get a list of suggestions but nothing to do with importing a Framework or a Theme -
- where can I track my Genesis down so that I can use it to create my new site?March 21, 2013 at 5:44 am #29894

Thanks Brad but that video is out of date and no use in this case.
As I mentioned, when I go to Appearance > Themes, I don't get a link to "Install Themes" like they show on the video. (If I did, I wouldn't have asked the question.)
All I get is "Manage Themes" - and no matter where I search, I cannot find how to instal Genesis for my subdomain.March 21, 2013 at 6:53 am #29920
You'll also find the upload link where you can upload a zip file of Genesis!!

I wish that were true, Brad!
But I don't see an upload file anywhere when I go to Appearance > Themes.
Maybe they moved it somewhere else?March 22, 2013 at 3:18 am #30392
anyone else got an idea what's wrong?March 22, 2013 at 3:49 am #30396
one thing which it might be is that the site has somehow been put on wordpress.com, because when i log in to the admin the adress is:
i have tried to move it to .org using the import-export technique but although the email came saying it haqd worked, nothing changed.
does anyone have an idea what i could do to get out of this hole?
