So In this post I will be guiding you on How to completely Customize Genesis Child Theme from top to bottom. So Let’s Go

Customizing Header

I will begin with a short and basic tutorial on adding logo to the theme.

How to add a logo in Genesis Child Theme?


By default Genesis shows up your blog title as a text logo so we need to switch to Image Logo.

To do this Go to Genesis -> Theme Settings -> Header Settings from your wordpress dashboard and choose Image Logo from the drop down list and save.

So now we can show up Image logo in our blog.

To add our own logo we have to replace the current genesis logo with our logo from Genesis Child Theme Image directory. To do this follow the steps.

  1. Login to your Cpanel and Go to File Manager.
  2. Choose your website directory and click wp-content than Themes.
  3. Choose your current child theme and enter to its Image folder.
  4. Now Upload your logo as “logo.png” name after deleting the current logo from there.

That’s it! We have our own logo now.
