Church 1.1 Child Theme Released

StudioPress is happy to announce the release of the Church 1.1 child theme. This updated child theme works on the Genesis Theme Framework and can be downloaded by Pro Plus members in the support forum. All others can purchase the package here.

If you have already purchased the Genesis Theme Framework and any other child theme previously, you can simply purchase the child package by itself, otherwise you need the Church + Genesis Theme package.

New Features

We are also very pleased to announce that the Church theme has been updated with new features:

  • 4 Color Styles – Black, Blue, Brown, Gray
  • Support for Custom Background
  • Support for Custom Header

Take it for a test drive…

Here’s a screenshot of the Church Child Theme:

  7. Hi Mr. Gardner, i have a ?, can i install the child church theme in wordpress with out using the, Genesis Theme Framework?

    • No, the child theme is dependent on the Parent theme, Genesis.

      Without the parent, your site will error out.

      You must install both Genesis and the child theme into the WordPress theme directory & then activate the child theme.
