How to Configure Genesis Framework theme settings

Sometimes customers ask me how to configure Genesis Framework Theme settings. Most of the Genesis Theme Settings work  fine by default but you can customize them to suit your own website configuring specific features like content archives, breadcrumbs, default theme layout,…

To access the theme settings, navigate to Genesis > Theme Settings in your WordPress admin.


Displays information and update notification options for the Genesis Framework. I would recommend to keep the Enable Automatic Updates checked.

It´s possible add your email address in the “Notify” field to get notified immediately whenever there is an update available.

Depending on your child theme, you can select different color schemes for your website or blog. You can select the color style from the drop-down menu depending on your taste and requirements. For example, Natalie Theme has four color schemes ( Coral, Navy, Green and Blue).

Allows you to redirect your RSS feed URLs if you’re using a feed delivery service. By default, ever WordPress site has two different feeds, i.e. general feed URL for the blog posts and a comment’s feed for any comments on your site. Genesis supports feed redirection Feedburner and Feedblitz services.

For example, I’m using Feedburner for RSS Feed.


You can determine your layout for post, pages and archives. Depending on the theme you’re using, it may override this setting for the home page and alternative settings can be used on a per page, post, or archive basis. The default Sidebar, Content Layout will be set by default in most themes.

Breadcrumbs can be a useful navigation device to display on different content types to guide visitors back, incrementally, to your home page.
I recommend you turn breadcrumbs on Single Posts if you have a large blog with lots of categories.

You can dissolve/ enable coments ans trackbacks for Posts or Pages.  For example, I like unable comments on post but It has not much sense on pages (contact, shop, about,..)

  1. If you change this configuration, install ‘Regenerate Thumbnails‘ plugin and run the tool to regenerate these Image featured images.
  2. If you use the Entry Content setting with 0 Characters limit, do not tick the “Include Featured Image” box. This avoids displaying duplicate images on your blog listing pages.


Controls the display options for Pages that use the Blog Page Template; Categories and post per page.

NOTE: This affects the number of blog posts that display on the Genesis Blog Page Template NOT  on your front page.


Header and Footer scripts are often used for statistical tracking scripts. For example, if you want to use Google Analytics, you can paste your tracking code into  header or bottom.
