/wp-content/languages/genesis-layout-extras/(just create this folder) - This enables you to use fully custom translations that won't be overridden on plugin updates. Also, complete custom English wording is possible with that as well, just use a language file like
genesis-layout-extras-en_US.mo/.poto achieve that.
Easy plugin translation platform with GlotPress tool: Translate "Genesis Layout Extras"...
Note: All my plugins are internationalized/ translateable by default. This is very important for all users worldwide. So please contribute your language to the plugin to make it even more useful. For translating I recommend the awesome "Codestyling Localization" plugin and for validating the "Poedit Editor", which works fine on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Security: The plugin uses the Genesis Sanitization class for checking and filtering all custom inputs. Further, the plugin uses WordPress and Genesis Framework APIs and coding standards to the highest possible extend. Just to make sure you get a quality, future-proof product.
Idea Behind / Philosophy: I had liked the general approach of the former plugin (I forked from) - which provided a simple and great way to set a few needed options. Since it seemed no longer to be developed and updated I just decided to make a fork of it and add some additional functionality like setting the layout setting for the (awesome!) bbPress 2.x forum plugin in Genesis. And, I wanted this all on an extra options page, divided from the general Genesis settings because that is much more user friendly IMHO. In addition I added full inline documentation including the contextual help function provided by WordPress itself to create a more seamless user experience.
Among the Top 7 most downloaded Genesis plugins ever :) Thank you all users and translators!
Thanks for all user feedback that led to improvements in the plugin!
Big thanks to all Genesis users, developers and bloggers who reviewed the plugin on their websites/ blogs!
Credit where credit is due: This plugin here was first based on the work of WPChildThemes for the great "Genesis Layout Manager" plugin. Now, nearly two years and a dozen updates later the basic function is still there but the code totally refactored...! :)
Special Thanks go out to my family for allowing me to do such spare time projects (aka free plugins) and supporting me in every possible way!
