How Do I Change The Featured Home Page Image On Genesis Minimum Child Themes?

Minimum and its derivatives have a large image on the home page. You can see an example screenshot of our Brian theme with an image we’ve uploaded onto the home page.


You will need to change this image out, if you are using any of our premium Minimum theme modifications like Brian, Michele, Lydia, Valerie, Brett and Minimum itself.

There are two ways you can do this. Whichever way you choose, you’ll need a suitable image. In the case of Minimum, Brian, Michele, Valerie and Lydia child themes, the image needs to be 1600px by 600px. In the case of Brett, the image must be 1600px by 430px.

Method 1 – Do It The StudioPress Way

If you go to the StudioPress website and log into your account there, you will find instructions that tell you how to upload the image.

Method 2 – Do It The Genesis Club Way

In the Genesis Club (our WordPress training membership), our members wanted a simpler way to do this, so we added some functionality to the Genesis Club plugin.

If you have the Pro version of the plugin installed you can change the image by doing the following :

  1. Upload the image to your media library or to any other place you may want to host it.
  2. Go to the Genesis Club plugin dashboard (in the left hand column on the WordPress dashboard) and click on Miscellaneous
  3. Find the Home Page Feature Image section and paste the URL of the image there and save.
