If you don’t have any technical skills like me, you are probably afraid of customizing Genesis framework and you have to depend heavily on pre-made child themes.
Don’t get me wrong, these child themes are great, but I am always dreaming about a day when I can have full control of my theme in a few clicks and not to be buried in heavy, ugly, dizzy codes.
Sharing the same dream with me?
I have found a solution for both of us (you and me) when you can use powerful Genesis framework and make your own custom design easily with more than 800 options and 49 1-click home page configurations.
Here we come, Dynamik child theme for Genesis Framework.
Dynamik Child Theme – An Overview
Dynamik Child theme comes from Catalys Developers who creates the famous Catalyst framework. It aims to make every customer a theme designer. You don’t need to learn Genesis hooks or spend countless hours on CSS classroom. The user interface of this child theme is easy to browse through. The codes are solid and they are good foundation for your website. You know, there are a lot themes with great designs, but the codes are terrible making a lot of errors and flood your hosting with unnecessary works. My favorite feature of this theme is that it’s fully responsive. As a result, no matter which changes you made to this child theme, it’ll be fit correctly on every device.

The developers from Catalyst Framework has bring Dynamik to Genesis community, they keep the original functions and add more for only Genesis.
It allows you to change everything you want in less than 5 clicks, sometimes 1 click is enough. And no, it’s not another combination of fonts and colors like some other premium themes. You can choose your favorite fonts, colors, layouts, how large your elements are and so on. You can add custom CSS codes or hooks with some clicks, the theme will help you do the heavy works.
How to customize your theme with Dynamik Genesis
There are three main parts of this child theme: Theme Settings, Design Options and Custom Options. Despite not providing an admin demo, Dynamik Genesis shows you the screenshot from admin panel of this theme. You can look at all of the screenshots here. Let’s see how these parts can help you
Genesis frameworks does have it core SEO options and settings, so the Dynamik Settings contains only a few options, but these options are nice addition for Genesis:
- Active WordPress Post Formats with one-click and choose your prefered formats.
- Gzip compression (Decrease loading time and data)
- Responsive design 1-click optimization.
- Add your own affiliate link in footer.

Design options panel includes everything you need to customize the theme from header to footer, from content to navigation. You can even control the shadows, borders, paddings… These features are well-categorized, so you’ll get used with them soon.
It also comes with 49 pre-made home page layouts and the feature to custom your home page with many features. I can’t explain everything here since it will overwhelm your head, instead you can take a look at the Design Options screenshots. The provider is nice enough to capture every aspect of admin panel and show you how it actually works.
As you probably know, Genesis allows people to use their “hooks” for design. For example, if you want to place a banner before comment section, you’ll use genesis_before_comments hook. But in order to use these “hooks” effectively, you should have some basic skills of writing codes plus a deep understanding in hooks and their positions.
Custom Options from Dynamik Genesis Child Theme has solved this problem by allowing you to choose where to place your additional codes, the theme will do the rest work for you including where to place, the CSS, conditions and so on.
