Genesis Theme Framework – version 1.0.2 is now available. This update addresses a few minor bugs that were in the previous version, and also includes a few elements of additional functionality. It’s always suggested you update to the latest version, and with Genesis, updating is a simple thing to do.
Before You Update to Genesis v1.0.2
It’s always advisable to make a backup of your current /genesis/ directory just to be safe. You can simply rename it /genesis_backup/ and then upload the new /genesis/ directory – that way in the event something goes wrong, you still have your working directory.
How to Update to Genesis v1.0.2
Assuming you haven’t made any changes to the core Genesis files, updating to the latest version of the Genesis Theme Framework is very easy. On your server, simply replace the /genesis/ directory in your /wp-content/themes/ directory on your server, with the new one. In other words, you will be replacing the entire Genesis parent theme folder with the new v1.0.2 version. This is the main reason we’ve encouraged everyone to make changes through the child theme, as updating the Genesis Theme Framework is THAT easy.
Where Can I get Genesis v1.0.2?
You can obtain it in two ways, first, we’ll be sending out an updated theme download link to everyone who has purchased Genesis. Second, you can always find the most current version of the theme in the support forum under the Genesis Theme Support > Genesis Theme Download thread.
