Focus 1.0 Child Theme Released

StudioPress is happy to announce the release of the Focus 1.0 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.

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

Utilizing the Genesis Grid Loop

The Focus child theme is the second of many themes that will utilize the Genesis Grid Loop that was included as part of Genesis v1.5. The Grid Loop was a custom function that was written to display featured posts on the top of a homepage, and then display a grid-like area of post excerpts at the bottom. You can also view an advanced tutorial on the Grid Loop written by Gary Jones.

Focus Child Theme


  1. Awesome addition! Wonder how you name the child themes perfectly. :) This really put the focus on to the content, rather than the design. Great job!

  2. Kudos, I like this with the grid loop and the column classes. Outstanding theme once again!

  3. WOO HOO!
    Nice- love this one. I can’t keep up with you guys :-)!
    LOVE the column classes!!!

  4. I really like the way this looks. Seems like you all just keep getting better and better.

  5. Great one, I love this child theme too. Thanks

  6. You guys always surprises me with your dedication and wonderful themes you produce, please keep it up

  7. Very nice offer Brian Gardner! It is really what I am waiting. BTW, I do not see Extended Magazine child theme on your store ?

    • Thanks – appreciate it. The Extended Magazine theme was done by someone else, and should be available on their site.

      • FYI, Extended Magazine may not be available anymore.

        I have been working with the Extended Magazine creator, and he’s said he pulled the theme from Theme Garden because of a few issues, some Genesis 1.5 related, some not. He’s also been very ill the past month or so.

        • That is bad news. I heard that his wife was sick and too bad if he stop developing that child theme. It is indeed a powerful one and I am using it now without any bugs, maybe I am non-tech blogger? Thanks for the notice

  8. I just saw the demo of Focus with the Column Classes. I said “Wow!” loud enough that my wife came into my office to see what was up.

    Awesome addition to the StudioPress lineup!

  9. Great move on the addition of the black scheme. So fresh and so clean!

  10. I have to add my compliments to the previous kudos. The front page is airy and open. The loading is fast.

  11. I am purchasing this theme for my blog. Great job, mates.
