The Education Pro theme is a Genesis Framework Theme created for the education industry, but it can be for any niche blog. All Genesis Framework themes are made to be easily customizable. Also, you can get free help on the official StudioPress community support forum or get free code snippets in our Genesis Framework Tutorials category.
The Education Pro homepage has two separate menu bars. The first is in the top left corner of this screen and is intended for social media follow links. The second menu can be found just under the logo image, and is perfect for listing important blog posts.
Under this menu bar is a widget that is ideal for a responsive slider plugin, in which you can link sliding images to various posts and pages. This is a great way to showcase pictures of your school and community or even raise funds for educational needs.
Under this slider widget, there is a medium-sized rectangle widget that is great for letting visitors know the purpose and goals of your blog.
Under this is yet another widget, in which you can list the most important areas of your blog and the links to them.
The built-in features seem endless! This second rectangular widget is followed by a widget to display the latest blog posts, and that is followed by an autoresponder box. This homepage is packed with ways to engage your visitors from the second they land on you page.
