Genesis Layout Extras

For Genesis Framework: Allows modifying of default layouts for homepage, various archive, attachment, search, 404 pages. Plus: up to 9 new layouts!

Among the Top 7 most downloaded Genesis plugins ever :) Thank you!

With this lightweight plugin for the popular Genesis Framework you can very easily modify the (registered) default layouts for homepage, singular pages (for posts and pages), various archive sections, author pages, attachment pages, search results pages, the 404 page - all done via a new theme options page. Just look for it at the submenu: Genesis > Layout Extras.

Version 2.0.0 is a complete rewrite regarding code optimizations and also new features: The plugin now optionally adds up to nine (9!) additional layouts. Also, you can optionally add Layouts meta box support for post types inpost screens which don't have it yet. Plus, Genesis Archive Settings for post types could be enabled as well.

As a smart bonus the plugin also includes the layout setting for the bbPress 2.x forum plugin which itself is compatible to Genesis. Also added is the layout setting for other plugins from the Genesis ecosystem or other third-party authors: for example AgentPress Listings which includes the custom post type 'listings' and the taxonomy 'features'. Just have a look on the below listings for full explanation.

Please note: The plugin requires the Genesis Theme Framework (GPL-2.0+), a paid premium product released by StudioPress/ Copyblogger Media LLC (via studiopress.com).
