Good afternoon. I wonder if you need to have specific technical knowledge for installing the genesis framework and child theme. I previously used for my web ThemeForest and has been very simple but I do not know if in this case technical knowledge like HTML language for example is required to install and configure both the genesis framework and the child theme. Thank you for your help.
You don't really need specific technical knowledge to install and set up a Genesis child theme. Assuming you're purchasing the child theme from StudioPress, they provide very detailed instructions on how to set up each of their child themes. That being said, if you want to make modifications to the theme, you may or may not need to get into the code. There are some free plugins (like Genesis Simple Edits) that let you modify some basic elements (e.g., the post-info (byline), the post-meta, and the footer area). If you're looking to make more extensive changes and you want to stay away from the code, you might consider Genesis Design Palette Pro. It's not free, but I've heard great things about it.
I hope that helps. Feel free to follow up if you have more specific questions about a particular theme.

Thank you very much Jamie!
There is no difference installing the theme over any other WordPress themes. You upload the zip file and activate - that is it.
How to modify the theme is a different question. 😉
If you need technical support for your theme please file a ticket.
