I am definitely not an expert coder or web designer, but I can grab code, tweak it to work and then translate it into an easier tutorial. Some people become far too technical when explaining coding customizations and they seem to leave out huge chunks of important data.
For example, I had no idea that there were even new hooks for Genesis 2 until I realized that the codes I was pasting in was not even working. The actual tutorials that I was lead to were for the older version of Genesis and I had no idea as I have never used this before.
New Genesis 2 Loop Hooks
Old Hook to New (HTML 5) Hook
genesis_before_post ==> genesis_before_entry
genesis_before_post_title ==> genesis_entry_header
genesis_post_title ==> genesis_entry_header
genesis_after_post_title ==> genesis_entry_header
genesis_before_post_content ==> genesis_entry_header
genesis_post_content ==> genesis_entry_content
genesis_after_post_content ==> genesis_entry_footer
genesis_after_post ==> genesis_after_entry
This awesome image below came from Brad Dalton’s Blog. It shows where the new hooks for Genesis 2 belong.
For a split moment I thought that my move from Thesis to Genesis was a mistake.
Here I was, adding code to my functions.php to customize my new Genesis theme and little did I know, the hooks were all wrong.
