Look at your CMS to see if they have an export function. Here is information on Importing from other CMS programs – http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content. See if your CMS is listed and follow their instructions.
To prepare for the import, you can:
1. Create a new directory on your hosting account, for example, called “new site.”
2. Install WordPress in the new site.
3. Then install the Genesis Framework and then your child theme.
4. Go to Tools > Import and look for the import plugin for your CMS exported file format.
5. Perform your import.
This way you can do all your testing before you go LIVE.
Read this by Brian Gardner and just take your time and follow his instructions. He provides very good, easy to read instructions for a variety of things – http://www.briangardner.com/portfolio-page/.
**** NOTE **** be sure to read the comments to. There may be some questions you have that are answered within the comment section.
You can actually take the image and re-color it and then upload it back. You could also remove the image and just colorize those elements like the header, middle body and footer. You can do that with you CSS.
You could use Firebug for Firebug and find the class id’s that way to each one.
The slider was offset. The image that used to be there was not centered. There was extra padding on the right. Also, the thumbnail images in the Demo do not have the shaded border around them any longer, so somehow that was removed from the demo. There’s other little things too that I had to change and other reported some on the forum as well.

I would suggest you read the Genesis Guide for Absolute Beginners – http://www.studiopress.com/news/genesis-for-beginners.htm. The developers really do not advocate you editing the “framework” itself, but installing a child theme and editing from there. You can easily customize the navigations, etc., by using CSS and also add in other functionality by editing the functions.php, home.php and other files located in your child theme. And they have the Genesis Hooks were you can add even more functionality.
I also use another free program you can download called Paint. You can edit Photoshop PSD files with it and also save your newly created files in PSD. Here is the download link – click the link in the top right corner, not the big one in the middle. That’s a Google Ad.
Install Paint first. Then follow the instructions to install the PSD plugin. I love this one also.
I see you said above you had installed Simple Hooks already. You are trying to call the Meta I believe but that’s not in your code anywhere. I am just sharing how I got mine to work.
<!--?php the_meta(); ?-->
When I used custom fields, I followed these instructions. Not sure if this will help you at all, but check it out – http://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Fields.
Try deactivating all of the other plugins except the slider. By the way, do you have it set to scroll, fade… which one?
Never mind, I don’t think it’s doing what I thought. So there are 2 pages in there? Or did you try to use a Page and a Post?
Are you using the Page Links To plugin? The Continue Reading button is taking me off to another website.
What commenting system are you using? Are you using the regular WP commenting or a third party such as Disqus?
