    Hello everyone – and i hope you are enjoying the weather.

    I have four basic questions – i have genesis installed on a site, and am using the sample child theme,

    the first question is – whats the difference between the sample child theme , and the minimum child theme ?
    because i couldnt notice any difference ?

    the second question is – if i put content on my site, and then keep genesis – but change the child theme – does the content on the site change, or does it save all the content ? (i.e. if i change the child theme from sample to minimum etc)

    the third question :-
    the site is a basic site with a static front page and pages as well as blog posts in categories, (with reviews of products etc)
    is genesis sample or minimum theme the best themes for this type of site, or does anyone have a better child theme they could recommend ?

    the fourth question :-
    is there a genesis manual that goes a bit more in depth than the 47 page genesis manual that is available entitled
    “An Introductory Guide to the
    Genesis Design Framework
    for WordPress – Revision 1.0″

    many thanks

    To answer your questions in order:

    1. If you are using this sample child theme for your website – Minimum has the slider area and several other widget areas that are not found in the sample.

    2. If you change your child themes, you content will still be maintained but your may need to reorganize your information in your widget areas. Not all child themes have widget areas that are in the same locations, so you would need to reposition your information.

    3. Selecting a theme for your website should be based on your what you do… what your niche is and what you will be sharing so it’s pretty hard to tell you what the best theme would be for you.

    4. Genesis 2.0 is going to be released shortly. I am not sure if a new Genesis for Beginners will be available or not. I will pose this question on Twitter to see if I get a response.

    Hello anitac,
    Thank you for your response,
    this is the sample theme that i meant.

    “Minimum has the slider area and several other widget areas that are not found in the sample.”
    what is the “slider area” and i could’nt see “several other widget areas” – could you please point these out to me – thank you.

    Thank you for answering the other questions except for this :-
    “4. Genesis 2.0 is going to be released shortly. I am not sure if a new Genesis for Beginners will be available or not. I will pose this question on Twitter to see if I get a response.”

    it would be helpfull if there was one for genesis, otherwise i will have a look for one for wordpress, the problem with that is that there are so many for wordpress, and some might not be appropriate for genesis,
    the 47 page manual – although its helpfull – its very basic, and just touches on subjects.

    thank you again anitac

    I made a mistake when I wrote that. Minimum doesn’t have a slider it has the home page image. The four arears where the social media buttons are located are widget areas. The sample theme does not have those areas. Well there is one for Genesis but I don’t know if they will update it to include 2.0. A lot of your knowledge will be gained by working with the framework, child themes and posting on here. That’s how a lot of us learned.
