We’ve been quietly working on Genesis 1.5 for a while now, and we had it in beta for a week now. This is not a very big release – but it does, however, tie up some loose ends, adds some useful new features, and fix some bugs. Below you’ll see what’s been included…
Rewritten Style Sheet
We have taken a lot of time and worked with our development community to rewritte the default Style Sheet. After all, you’re not really supposed to be using Genesis itself, right? True, but keep in mind that many people use the main Genesis Style Sheet as a starting point for their own child themes, just as we do here internally. So we felt like an update might be in order. It now includes a table of contents, sections which are clearly commented, and consolidated styles and definitions. We think you’ll like it.
Genesis Grid Loop
Sites like ChrisBrogan.com required custom code to accomplish that left-right grid loop on the homepage, so we thought it’d be a good idea to build the function that does the heavy lifting into core, add some useful parameters, and make it official. This feature is really simple to use and only requires a few lines of code. In fact, we’ve already got a child theme with the grid loop almost ready to release. In the meantime, you can learn How to Use the Genesis Grid Loop.
