Genesis - Install the Recommended Plugins
After activating your new theme, you should see a notification bar at the top of your WordPress Dashboard that says "This theme recommends the following plugins:", followed by a list of the recommended plugins for your theme. It will look like this:
- Click the "Begin installing plugins" link at the bottom to install the plugins.
- Once you have them installed, go to the Plugins page and make sure you activate each plugin. This is important.
- If you don't want a WooCommerce shop, don't activate WooCommerce or Genesis Connect WooCommerce– you can just delete those!
If you don't see the notification bar, you can simply go to Appearance > Install Plugins. It will take you to the recommended plugins page. Begin installing and activating your plugins!
