I am working with the latest version of Genesis (3.1). The Themes Settings option in WordPress redirect to Customizer. I am not seeing any option to redirect the Feed to external feed or update the existing settings. How to do that with the latest Genesis version?

The feed setting was removed on "fresh" installs March 5, 2018 - "Remove feed settings if Genesis 2.6 is your first version." See the Genesis Changelog here. If Genesis was already installed you will continue to see the setting.

Thanks Anita, I guess I should have checked that place to see if anything has changed.
It still creates few questions:
1. What's the recommended way to redirect the feed with the latest Genesis versions? Looks like we need to use third part plugins to get this done.
2. I have started before v2.6 because I have the feed setup with feedburner and used Genesis Theme settings to redirect it to feedburner. The feed redirect is still working correctly. The issue is that at that time SSL was not an requirement and feed was set up as HTTP, now I want to move it to HTTPS and I don't see any way to update that setting.

@sanjeev looks like the update hasn't been added yet to the customizer. I inquired with the StudioPress developers and they responded below:
If they/you have access to WP-CLI, you can use that to find the setting, then update it ...
wp option get genesis-settings
find the RSS redirect setting, then update with ...
wp genesis setting update feed_uri https://example.com
If you don't have access, you can probably look in the wp-options table for the feed.

@sanjeev I was given a better solution by the Genesis developers. They said to add the following to your functions which will remove the redirect all together. Then use a redirect plugin to create your new redirect.
remove_action( 'template_redirect', 'genesis_feed_redirect' );

Thanks Anita, I was able to use the WP-CLI to update the feed settings. The code mentioned above is useful. I would be moving to proper solution later on so I can use it at that time to remove the setting all together.
Thanks for you help.
