Genesis Widgetized Archive

Finally, use widgets to maintain & customize your Archive Page Template in Genesis Framework and Child Themes to create archive/sitemap listings.

NOTE: Only works with Genesis Framework (GPL-2.0+) as the parent theme. This is a paid premium product by StudioPress/ Copyblogger Media LLC, available via studiopress.com.

Installation of Plugin:

  1. Upload genesis-widgetized-archive folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory -- or just upload the ZIP package via 'Plugins > Add New > Upload' in your WP Admin
  2. Activate the plugin through the "Plugins" menu in WordPress
  3. Edit a page and apply the "Archive" page template.
  4. Then go to the "Widgets" admin page and configure your widgets for the "Archive Page Template #1 - #3".
  5. Enjoy your new archive page :-)

Note: The "Genesis Framework" is required for this plugin in order to work. If you don't own a copy it yet, this premium parent theme has to be bought. More info about that you'll find here: http://ddwb.me/getgenesis

Usage: The plugin adds 3 new widget areas on your Widget Admin. Just place any widget in the #1 area and if you want to have columns use the optional 2nd and/ or 3rd area. That's all. Enjoy!

Also note: This plugin needs NO settings page. You only need your default page edit screen and your widgets admin. Simplifying and no overbloat - you get the idea :).

Own translation/wording: For custom and update-secure language files please upload them to /wp-content/languages/genesis-widgetized-archive/ (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, just use a language file like genesis-widgetized-archive-en_US.mo/.po to achieve that (for creating one see the tools on "Other Notes").
