Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Template files in the Genesis framework, part of WordPress Themes: Customizing Themes with Genesis.
- [Instructor] In this lesson, I'd like to run over…the template files used in the Genesis Framework,…and those are the files here in this root directory.…If you've ever looked at template files…for another WordPress theme, you'll see a lot of…template files have the same name like 404.php,…and comments.php.…So on the surface, the template files for Genesis…look really similar to other themes,…but unlike a regular theme, the Genesis templates…have very little code in them.…In fact, some files, like this single.php…only have a single line of code.…
