Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Remove Genesis defaults, part of WordPress and Genesis: Building Child Themes from Scratch.
- One of the great things about…the Genesis framework, is that…so much comes with the theme by default.…For instance, there are six default layout options,…which means that, that's six that…I don't have to create for my child theme.…They're just there by default.…Now, if you don't want any of these…defaults, Genesis provides an easy…way for you to remove them.…So, let's say that I don't want to use…any of these double sidebar layouts.…I'd like to get rid of them.…Now, you may say to yourself, "I'm…not going to use those layouts, but…it doesn't bother me if they stay there."…Well, it should bother you and I'll tell you why.…
When you're coding a theme from scratch,…you're responsible for adding styles…for every little thing, since you're…literally starting with nothing.…Having all six layouts available…means that you need to create…styles to support each of those.…So, if you don't need all of them,…save yourself the work of styling them…by simply removing them.…So, we'll use the Genesis "unregister…layout" function to get rid of the ones we don't want.…
