Tagged: Yes the Genesis Theme is Dead
Is Genesis now a dead end road now that full site block themes are the apparent future of wordpress?
Are there other resources (forums etc) where I'd have better luck getting replies/answers?
I probably should have checked this forum before I spent ALL this energy learning new shit to create my ultimate child theme. Pfhtt.
Wordpress thinks they are, apparently. Regardless, I assume "traditional" themes will be around longer than I am (I'm old and sick - lol). Not a very "vibrant" community like I expected when I started designing again but I reckon I'll figure out what I need to with the help of google.
There are thousands of tutorials out there that provide support for Genesis child themes.
Why don't you publish your theme on Github and link to it so the community has direct access and can contribute.
Yes Brad, there are a lot of tutorials, many of them are outdated or don't work. The work I've done has been due to those same tutorials. Mostly 3rd party tho. Not much from Genesis.
I will look into github!
And by community you mean this one? What, are there like 4-5 people posting here? lol.
thx for the replies
It has been eight months or so since I've been here and I am sad to see the demise of this forum and Genesis itself. I'm wondering what direction Studio or WPEngine (or whomever is in charge!) is going to take.
While I took the business and my personal sites off of WP and re-wrote them with Bootstrap as static sites, we still do WP sites for clients... but my developers want to use the open source version of Astra and GeneratePress instead and so we have been gravitating in that direction.
What is the outlook of Genesis? We've been using it for a decade. Has WPEngine/Studio issued a "roadmap" for the future of the product?
The crickets tell the story....
I'm ashamed to say I paid a lot of money for this virtual paper weight.
But my door knobs still work, because they have some life left in them.
I haven't build a Genesis site for at least 3 years.
Another favored option, Oxygen, is on life support. (Haters are welcome)
I've been looking at Bricks, but mostly use Astra and Blocksy now. Both are super fast to build and load even faster.
