The most powerful site-building tool for the Genesis Framework

How it works

There are 3 key elements to Genesis Customizer. The blank child theme, the core functionality engine plugin, and the Pro add-on.

Child theme

The base child theme is completely blank and ready for customization. The only code it contains is the automatic plugin installer which runs upon activation. Everything in the child theme can be changed after installation, including the name!

Core plugin

All of the themes functionality is contained in the core functionality plugin. This allows automatic updates to the code without losing customizations made to the child theme, making it easy to keep your site secure and up to date with the latest features.

Pro Add-on

Need a little something extra? We're working on a bunch of awesome features that will be available for purchase soon. Here's some of the planned features - masonry blog layout, custom code, header search, mega menu, search toggles plus heaps more!

Common questions

Below are some of the most common questions we receive. Can’t find the answer your looking for? Get in touch with our friendly support team.

Genesis Customizer is a Genesis Child Theme which upon activation, automatically installs it’s core functionality or “engine” plugin. All of the functionality is contained in the plugin, enabling safe automatic updates without losing any customizations made to the child theme.

Maybe, but we don’t recommend it. It’s best to begin with the Genesis Customizer starter theme and add custom code only when needed.
