It’s been a wild ride thus far after making our big announcement the other day and though we are continuing to work through the many posts and emails that have come up since, we felt it necessary to address a few questions and concerns that have come up more than a few times.
What Is Genesis And How Does It Work With Dynamik Website Builder?
Genesis is the industry standard theme framework for WordPress, plain and simple. It’s essentially a solid foundation for Child Theme development and that’s what makes it such a perfect match for Dynamik.
Is This Dynamik Website Builder/Genesis Combo Really Going To Give Me That Catalyst Experience That I Know And Love?
The simple answer is yes and then some, but I’d encourage you to watch the video and see what I mean when I say that “Dynamik Website Builder IS Catalyst 2.0″.
What Is The Genesis Extender Plugin And Do I Need It?
Take Dynamik Website Builder, remove the Design Options admin page, turn it into a Plugin and BAM, you’ve got Genesis Extender. Genesis Extender is a Plugin for Genesis and it is for use with NON-Dynamik Child Themes. So if you’re using Dynamik exclusively then no, you don’t need Extender. But if you plan on occasionally using some of the many pre-customized Genesis Child Themes, but want to still have all those custom options at your disposal then yes, Genesis Extender is an excellent tool to have in your web design toolbox.
How Do We Go About Converting Our Catalyst Sites Over To Dynamik/Genesis?
Over the coming weeks we will be finishing and releasing a Plugin and some tutorials that help with this process. The Plugin will make it so you can quickly transfer many of your Catalyst settings over to Dynamik/Genesis. It’s not going to be a magic bullet that allows you to convert your site in seconds, but it should significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to perform a conversion. And we’re here to help when you run into a snag.
That’s just a drop in the bucket of questions, I know, but those were some of the big ones that really needed addressing. But if we missed something or raised yet another question or concern regarding this transition please don’t hesitate to comment or email us as we’re happy to help.
