This is the second part of the Loop. In this lab, you will explore how the remaining portion of the loop in Genesis works as well as how to customize it. You will dig into the entry content, footer, and after entry components.
In order to do this lab, you need to complete The Loop Part 1 – Developer’s Guide to Customizing Genesis
This lab is intended for Professional Developers. You will be in the codebase, reverse engineering the actual code itself in order to really know it. It will require some PHP and WordPress knowledge. However, I will point out the Docx articles for the various language constructs in the event something doesn’t quite make sense for you. If you are a beginner, you can work slowly, go to the Docx and learn each construct, and then rewind when necessary. If you’ve been building custom sites from scratch for awhile, then you can fast forward the bits that bore you.
Required Skill Level
This lab has stuff for everyone. For the beginner, you get a solid hands-on experience in PHP, WordPress, and Genesis. For the pro, you get all of that plus you get to learn about clean, quality coding, how to think about code, and how to find what you’re looking for in the codebase.
You will grow in this profession when you incrementally and systematically stretch yourself....bit-by-bit.

Let's build a custom Developer's Genesis framework starter child theme. A starter child theme is built to your needs, standards, and style. It gives you consistency from project-to-project and saves you a ton of time (and moola) as all you need to do is add in the custom bits for each project.
