If your site are one of the WordPress blog that use StudioPress, you will be happy to see and download their latest Genesis Framework 2.2.2.
The Genesis Framework version 2.2.2 adds new accessibility options for child themes, compatibility with WordPress’s Title Tag and Site Icon features, more Schema.org microdata improvements, and many small fixes to make your Genesis experience even better.
Genesis 2.2 is a huge leap forward for the framework.
Here are the specific changes they made in this branch.
- Allow child themes to enable accessibility features for web users with disabilities – Here are the detail instructions for how to enabling and working with all the new A11y features in Genesis 2.2
- Improvements to the Schema.org micro-data Genesis outputs – Genesis is one of the few WordPress themes that fully utilizes Schema.org microdata and HTML5 in the markup.
- Compatibility with WordPress’s generated Title Tag output – Title tags can now be automatically output rather than manually output by a theme. If a child theme chooses to do this, Genesis 2.2 will now defer to the generated title tag, rather than invoking any functions directly.
- Compatibility with WordPress’s new Site Icon feature – Normally, Genesis searches for favicon files in various locations, but in Genesis 2.2, it now look for the WordPress favicon first, then fall back to searching for files directly in theme folders if necessary.
- Allow entry meta to be turned off on a per post type level, many other improvements and bug fixes.
No matter you are a newbie to WordPress blog and theme frameworks or a grizzled developer, Genesis 2.2.2 allows you to do more with your WordPress site than you ever thought possible.
