I can make a simple WordPress sites...meaning using 2016, 2017 using all it's basic functionalities etc..

 

1) Now I want to get a hang of Genesis/ Studiopress themes, I want to follow your tutorials. Agency has changed to Agency Pro. In one of your earlier posts you had mentioned that there is no harm in using Agency theme rather than the new parallax type Agency Pro theme and use the same plugins. Can I follow your lessons downloading Agency theme and use the plugins?

 

2) The functionalities of your member plugins seem to be extremely useful. Will they work for Genesis 2? (The question may seem to be absurd; sorry if that was the case). If the plugins won't work for the new version, Genesis 2; are you planning to make newer versions of the plugins?

 

3) Regarding Thesis: Knowing to construct simple WordPress sites, when I start Thesis can I start straightaway start with your latest course (2.3) rather than lauch party 2.0 etc.

Sorry for myriad of questions, as I am want to cautious to keep the next step forward.

Ravi - I'll email a copy of Agency to you.  It works fine in Genesis 2.  The plugins have all been updated to work in Genesis 2 as well.

In terms of Thesis - Yes, the latest course is a touch more up to date, but the Thesis 2.1 launch party videos are still good as well.  All of the original Thesis 2.0 videos can be ignored.

In terms of using and and understanding Thesis there is very little difference between Thesis 2.1 and Thesis 2.4 and no difference between Thesis 2.4 and Thesis 2.3.  The differences between 2.3 and 2.4 are minimal - pretty much only a developer will notice them.

(I am not opening a new thread as this post is relevant to the previous post)

I have health problems and hence my learning speed is very slow apart from learning other things. Sorry for not starting Genesis project for about an year. I just started the Genesis Project before which I thought I could ask you the same questions I asked you last year.

Copy and Paste of the previous post

Ravi - Yes you can go through the course using Agency.  And Yes, the Genesis plugins work just fine with the current version of Genesis.

The Thesis boxes and skins do not.

Thanks for the prompt reply, as always.

Just one thing. Just before the course begins, the link with words

"The site we are going to create will look like this"

http://sbywh-final-agency.byob.....sis.com/  (Example site is down.The finished site will be very useful to know where I am heading).

It would be great if you upload it please as I am creating a Artist portfolio site.

Thanks for every thing.

I'm sorry Ravi - I've closed that hosting account so there is no longer a live version of that site.
