Fernando – Installing the Child Theme With Genesis

Log into your WordPress Dashboard.

Go to Appearance > Add New Themes

  • Click on Upload
  • Locate the genesis.zip file from your local computer and then click the “Install Now” button.
  • Activate the newly added theme.
  • Once the Genesis Framework is installed, you can load the child theme.
  • Follow the same process for the child theme as you did Genesis.

NOTE: Do not install the child theme prior to installing Genesis.

Get Confused?

If you installed a child theme before Genesis, make sure you delete the child theme before trying to install Genesis. It allows you to start with a clean slate and provides a smooth installation process.
