Genesis Simple Edits

Description

This plugin creates a new Genesis settings page that allows you to modify the post-info (byline), post-meta, and footer area on any Genesis theme. Using text, shortcodes, and HTML in the textboxes provided in the admin screen, these three commonly modified areas are easily editable, without having to learn PHP or write functions, filters, or mess with hooks.

Installation

  1. Upload the entire genesis-simple-edits folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. DO NOT change the name of the genesis-simple-edits folder.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Navigate to Genesis > Simple Edits
  5. Edit the areas you would like to change, using text, HTML, and the provided shortcode references.
  6. Save the changes

After installing I have to update the plugin to get it running. "Please install and activate the latest version of Genesis to use this plugin." To update I need to make an new account at the website of Studiopress to get this done. When I try to make a new account by clicking "Get started" at Studiopress.com I got on the homepage and have to figure it out myself. The button "My Studiopress" would be logical, but this brings me to the same page as before. After one hour trying I'm unhappy and done with this plugin.

This plugin has been a life-saver. From displaying last updated date for my posts in WordPress to customizing Genesis footer, this is my go to plugin. Excellent for people who don't have much knowledge on coding or editing the function.php or the Stylesheet.
