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. The core functionality plugin provides hundreds of theme options to the Customizer. It’s designed to provide options for everything so that you no longer have to write custom code.
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.

Just about anything, the possibilities are endless. Keep it minimal like the Genesis Sample theme or create more complex page layouts with page builder plugins, it’s up to you. Even this site is built with it!
The Pro add-on provides a suite of awesome features that extend Genesis Customizer and we’re constantly adding more. Pro customers also receive exclusive access to the private Slack group, priority support and more!
You bet! Genesis Customizer has been integrated with the most popular page builder plugins since the beginning. There are lots of nice touches that make working with page builder plugins an enjoyable experience.
When working with Customizer settings, most themes output the customizations as inline CSS. This is usually not the best approach as inline CSS cannot be cached. To avoid this, Genesis Customizer writes all of the custom styles to a separate file which is then minified and can be cached by your favorite optimization plugin. There are almost zero styles added by default, which means there is no duplicated code – only your customizations are output. Performance is a top priority to us.
