StudioPress is happy to announce the release of the Focus 1.0.2 child theme. This WordPress theme works on the Genesis Framework and can be downloaded by Pro Plus members in the support forum. All others can purchase the package here.
Custom Header Function
With the release this week of Genesis v1.6, we’ve easily been able to update the Focus child theme to take advantage of the new custom header function that is now a part of Genesis.
Here’s a screenshot to see what the custom header screen looks like:
While the original Focus child theme included support for footer widgets, we’ve replaced the method in which the footer widgets are registered. Prior to Genesis v1.6, we had to include the footer widgets with a lot more code than is required now. Thanks to Genesis, which does the heavy lifting, you can register footer widgets with a single line of code.
Updating Isn’t Necessary
If you are currently using an earlier version of Focus, you don’t have to update to the v1.0.2. If you already have a logo header then there really isn’t a need to include custom header to your site. The footer widgets code was simply consolidating code which you already have, so there isn’t any additional benefits to updating.
If you are a registered user on our support forum, you can see a detailed changelog for reference.
