Using the WordPress Customizer, you can edit your child theme’s options and preview the changes before publishing them to your live site.
Once you’ve activated a child theme, you’ll see several default WordPress settings and some Genesis- specific settings in the customizer. The available settings will vary depending upon which child theme is activated.
To get started, go to Appearance > Customize to access the customizer. Once the customizer is open, you’ll see a menu on the left and a preview of your site on the right:
The customizer menu on the left side shows the various options that are available for editing in your theme. You can choose from options such as colors, background image, menus, and more.

Let’s go over some of the common options available in the customizer.
Site Identity & Upload Logo
You can set your site title, tagline, and upload your site icon (favicon) here. If you have activated a theme that doesn’t include the Header Image setting (see below), you can also choose whether you’d like to display an Image logo or Dynamic text for your site title. Almost all our child themes, however, do include the Header Image setting.
* If you already changed Logo but it couldn’t display on your website, please take a look on Header/Footer script and remove all code.
This themes also allow the selection of a custom Link Color and/or Accent Color. These colors are typically applied to links, navigation menu link hovers, buttons, and footer widget backgrounds.
You can create and edit menus, as well as manage their location, within the Customizer. The available menu locations will depend upon which theme is activated on your site. Click Menu Locations to see the available locations in your theme.

You’ll see a list of all the available widgets you can add to the available widget areas. You can click directly on any widget you’d like to add.

Home page settings
The default setting for the front page is Your latest posts. This setting allows you to display a blog style front page. You can, however, select any page in your site to be displayed as the front page instead of your latest posts. You can also select which page will display your blog posts. This page should be different from the one you’ve selected for the static front page and should not be set to use the Blog Page template.
Theme SEO Settings
When Genesis SEO (search engine optimization) is active, you will see the Theme SEO Settings menu option in the Customize Settings. If any of several advanced SEO plugins are active, the Genesis SEO settings will be automatically disabled to avoid duplicate SEO related fields from being displayed for your site. The default settings are recommended for most users.
Add your own CSS code here to customize the appearance and layout of your site.
The Genesis Framework includes several basic settings and options that will help you customize how your site looks and functions. Some of these options can be configured within the WordPress Customizer and some can be configured in the Genesis-specific settings pages.
Let’s take a look at the settings and options available in the customizer first.
Once you’ve activated a child theme, you’ll see a new Genesis menu item in the WordPress Dashboard.
This menu item includes three sub-menu options: Theme Settings, SEO Settings, and Import/Export. Sometimes child themes and Genesis-specific plugins will add additional sub-menu items in this section. They may also add additional content to the default Genesis settings pages. The Theme Settings page contains general options to control the way your theme will behave. Some of these settings are also available in the WordPress Customizer. Each of the boxes on the page can be collapsed or expanded by clicking the box header and can be dragged into any order you wish. They can also be hidden by clicking on the Screen Options tab in the top right corner of the screen and unchecking the boxes you don’t want to see. Let’s look at each of the Theme Settings.
- Color Styles: You can select the Color Style from the drop-down list for your entire site in here on the Genesis Theme Settings screen.
- Layouts: You can select the Default Layout for your entire site in the WordPress Customizer or here on the Genesis Theme Settings screen. Child themes may include one or more of the following options:
- Content, Primary Sidebar
- Primary Sidebar, Content
- Full-Width Content
- Breadcrumbs: Breadcrumbs are a navigation aid that allows users to keep track of their location on a website relative to the home page. This option lets you define the pages where the Breadcrumbs will be displayed. Breadcrumbs can be defined within the WordPress Customizer or here on the Genesis Theme Settings screen
- Comments & Trackbacks: Genesis allows you to globally enable or disable Comments and Trackbacks on Posts and Pages. If Comments or Trackbacks are disabled here, they cannot be enabled on an individual post or page basis. You can enable or disable them in the WordPress Customizer or here on the Genesis Theme Settings screen.
- Content Archives: The Content Archives settings allow you to control the way content displays on category, tag, author, date, and taxonomy archive pages. These settings can be defined in the WordPress Customizer or here on the Genesis Theme Settings screen.
You can choose to display entry content or to display entry excerpts on archive pages.
- Entry content: This setting allows you to display full posts on archive pages.
- Entry excerpts: This setting allows you to display post excerpts on archive pages.
- If you’d like to limit the length of the content displayed while using the entry content setting, enter the number of characters (letters, numbers, and spaces) in the Limit content to the field.
- The Featured Image setting allows you to show a thumbnail of the first attached image or the currently set featured image for the post.
- The Entry Pagination setting allows you to select one of two navigation display methods: Previous/ Next or Numeric. These navigation links will be visible on category, tag, author date, and taxonomy archive pages, pages using the blog page template, and on blog style home pages.
- Blog Page Settings: The Blog Page Template settings govern pages that use the Blog Template. A page that is set to use this template will display a list of recent posts similar to the home page view of a blog style home page.
You can use the drop-down menu to select a specific category to display. You can also exclude categories by ID, as well as select how many posts you’d like to display on this page.
- Extra Footer & Header scripts: The Header and Footer Script text areas will allow you to add code for tools such as statistics tracking and other 3rd party services that require code to be added to the header or footer area of your site. One notable example would be the code for Google Analytics tracking which can be added to the header scripts box.
