Here is the latest installment of monthly “Genesis Community TLDR” blog series featuring happenings from around the Genesis community.
If you’d like to submit something you or someone you know is up to within the Genesis universe you can post about it in Genesis WP on Facebook or in the #self-promotion group in Genesis WP in Slack. We’re looking forward to reading your suggestions and socializing what the Genesis community is up to in this monthly blog series!
Here’s what the Genesis community was up to in October 2019:
Thank you to everyone who managed to come hang out with us at WCUS 2019! It’s always a pleasure getting to talk to Genesis community members in person.
We recently rebuilt WP Engine’s Torque website using Genesis. I would love to hear your thoughts on the theme. We have a case study planned as well, so we’ll share back how we approached this project including our use of Genesis, React, blocks, and specifically Atomic Blocks so others can learn from the build. Thanks in advance for any feedback or observations!
JOB ALERT – Do you want to come work with Nathan and the Genesis team? Nathan is currently looking for someone to help us build the most useful, user-friendly suite of future-proof WordPress tools. Even better, we are completely open to work-from-home applicants! Apply online at our Job site.
Three Genesis child themes have been brought bang up to date with one-click theme setup and more, to make it even easier to make your site to look awesome! Check them out here and click through to see the demos.

We’ve added Genesis CLI to WP Engine’s free CLI-based local dev tool “DevKit”. We hope you’ll enjoy Genesis CLI at your fingertips. Also, we know a lot of you are using Local by Flywheel for local dev, so watch for Genesis features in Local in the future

Every year we run a contest that enables a 501c3 nonprofit (nominated and voted upon by the community) to win a free custom designed and developed website up to $20,000 in value.

It was a great experience and I had the honor and pleasure to be a “digital speaker” talking about Genesis Framework hooks :
