Install the Genesis Framework

Installing the Genesis Framework follows the same process for installing any WordPress theme, except that you do not activate it.

Here are the steps to follow:

  • Navigate to Appearance > Themes from the WordPress menu
  • Click Add New
  • Click Upload Theme
  • Click Choose File, find and select your zipped copy of the Genesis Framework on your computer
  • Click Install Now
  • Do not activate!

After installing the Genesis Framework, you can now install your child theme.
