Seamless and straightforward
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin does exactly what it claims to do, which is add solid widgetized footer functionality to the Genesis framework. It allows users to change areas that otherwise require coding inside the child theme itself.

Now, some people have left 1 star reviews because Genesis is not free. The documentation states this clearly, but others have decided to ignore that and bash the author of the plugin instead.

There are many plugins in the repository that serve as add-ons to paid products. Some for other commercial themes (Thesis, Headway), Gravity Forms, and others for niche products that have a SaaS component that is not free. This is perfectly OK and shows that the WP ecosystem can work with commercial products.

Another great plugin for users
By , for WP 3.5.1

There are two plugins I regularly use for this exact function, and this is one of them. Works like a charm and is easy for the usesr to understand.

The fact that these kinds of plugins that work with specific frameworks are out there, they can be invaluable for those who do not want to work with code, or even understand it.

A must for all Genesis non coders
By , for WP 3.5

Changing the Genesis child theme footer credits can be a nightmare for non coders - this plugin makes it so easy, anyone could do it.

I did try the Genesis Simple edits plugin, but it messed with the CSS on some of the post meta so I tried this one - worked like a charm.

Good thing is, David Decker the plugin developer is a Genesis geek so he knows Genesis like the back of his hand.

Fabulous plugin, give it a try.
