Genesis Connect for Easy Digital Downloads

Integrate the Easy Digital Downloads plugin easily with the Genesis Framework and Genesis child themes: Templates, plus two additional widgets.

Optimized Display plus Bonus Features

This plugin provides optimized templates for the 'download' Custom Post Type of the Easy Digital Downloads plugin for the use with Genesis Framework and Child Themes. To allow easy customization of these templates, and ensure that you do not lose your customizations when the plugin is updated, you can place your own copies of these templates in your child theme's /edd/ folder and customize these copies as much as you like. You can also create your own taxonomy-{taxonomy}.php and taxonomy-{taxonomy}-{term}.php templates in the same location and this plugin will find them and use them to display your website's Download Category and Download Tag archives. See the Template Hierarchy to learn more about naming requirements for taxonomy templates.

Additionally, the plugin adds full support for the Genesis SEO Settings, inpost metaboxes for Layout Settings plus plugin support for "Genesis Simple Sidebars" as well as "Genesis Simple Menus". Further, two additional (shortcode aware) sidebars are provided for the use on top of the Downloads Archives page and for Single Download pages. Further, breadcrumbs display and post meta info is tweaked for optimized usage.

Please note: This connect plugin is not required for Genesis & Easy Digital Downloads users but makes life a lot easier!
