A Special WordPress Plugin
But the Genesis Club Pro plugin is purpose-built to enhance any Genesis child theme and to allow the user to achieve more with fewer clicks.
It is more like a Genesis sub-system than an everyday plugin.
It is in our opinion, the must-have plugin for Genesis as it provides so many useful enhancements and additions in one place. Using it you can make quick changes to a site that help to fine tune the site for a better visitor experience. Added to this, we bring out new features frequently.
Genesis Only WordPress Plugin
Because of this, we can take advantage of Genesis specific coding, making the plugin more efficient and more robust and less prone to plugin and theme conflicts than if it had to be made to work across a wide range of themes.
If you find Genesis child theme that it conflicts with, just let us know through a support ticket.
Many of the the blueprints make use of the Genesis Club Pro plugin. You will be emailed about these when each blueprint is released, assuming you remain on our email list.

Extra Genesis Code Tweaks
For example, we’ve already added ways to change the Post Info and Post Meta information that appears on most standard Genesis child themes. So you can easily decide on the post date format, and which types of information you want included on that post info line.
Also you can change the post meta easily – so say your site is about food or tennis personalities, instead of your site using the word Categories on its post meta, you can change it to say, “Food Groups” or “Tennis Greats”.
The plugin will be getting more and more small additions like this that you might miss out on if they were not included in the plugin.
We look at what we need for our own development and ask – what would we like to see on every Genesis site? We have a number of these micro tweaks on the cards. Once you’re a plugin user, you’ll have access to these as they happen.
Frequent New Plugin Updates
For example the latest enhancement (at the time of writing) is the chequerboard widget. This is useful in the case where your site is about a topic that does not naturally lend itself to images or if you do not want to use images in the widget content or post extracts on your home page. The widget displays the text extract of the post against a background color of your choice. This helps the posts to look attractive without an image.
Timely Plugin Bug Fixes
Obviously we try to ensure bugs are minimised in the first place – but when something does happen – we’ll investigate and address as quickly as we can. All you need to do is to let us know any issues via a support ticket.
You won’t normally get this level of support for free plugins, because it costs time and therefore money to do quality software support. You know that as a premium plugin we are invested in keeping it maintained.
Using the Genesis Club Pro plugin on your site is like having a world-class plugin developer helping you out, day after day.
WordPress Plugin Supported By Its Developers
We are a small team so we can’t be awake all the time – but we really care about the plugin and its continual development. You will benefit from that and our commitment to it because we use it ourselves on every site we build.
