Genesis is a WordPress framework, otherwise known as a parent theme. It provides added security, search engine optimization and other features to a WordPress website.
All Agent Evolution themes are considered Genesis child themes. That means that they require Genesis to be installed in order for them to work.
If you don't already own a copy of Genesis by StudioPress, you can buy it here.
Much like any website, you'll need to own a domain and have WordPress with the Genesis framework installed on a web host provider.
Here are the recommended system requirements:
We recommend Hostgator or Bluehost for hosting. While other hosting providers claim that they can run WordPress, we have seen a number of issues caused by an inferior hosting environment. The minimum requirement for a hosting provider is a Linux server, with PHP version 5.2.4 or greater, and MySQL version 5.0 or greater (LAMP server).
WordPress 3.4 or greater
If your site is running a WordPress version less than 3.0, you will need to update WordPress before installing Genesis and the child theme.
Genesis 1.8 or greater
If your site is running an older version of Genesis, you will need to upgrade Genesis before activating the child theme.
There is no limit on the number of personal use websites you can create with your theme. Put it on as many of your websites as you would like.
Should you want to use our themes to build websites for your clients, you will need to purchase the Developer's Pack.

Please do. You will need to purchase the Developer Pack, though. Individual theme purchases are for personal use only.
We would be proud to know that you like our themes enough to use them for your client websites.
Only you will have access to our support services, though.

Unfortunately, WordPress.com doesn't allow themes to be uploaded. This means that you can't use our themes on WordPress.com.
Our themes are intended for use on the WordPress.org websites.
Yes, our themes display beautifully on mobile devices. In fact, all of our themes are specifically designed to be mobile responsive. This means that the layout adapts to the size of the screen, no matter the type or size of the device.
Yes, while AgentEvolution can customize the theme for you, it can cost you more in the long run than getting a semi-custom built site from us.
Think of the site as a house. WordPress is the foundation and the themes are the walls of the house. Trying to move walls after the house is built takes longer and costs more than having the walls where you want them when the house was built.
We have one of the best WordPress web design shops in the business. Learn more about our design services and pricing on our WordPress Website page.
We provide forum and tutorial support for the installation, configuration and support of our themes.

Although our themes work with many third-party IDX providers, they don't come with IDX.
You will need to get that service from a company like IDX Broker or Diverse Solutions.
A child theme is a kind of WordPress theme that relies upon a framework (parent theme) to operate. Our child themes are built for the Genesis platform. Genesis must be installed for our child themes to work.
Yes, most WordPress plugins should work with our themes. Due to the vast number of plugins available and various quality levels of those plugins, we can't guarantee any plugin compatibility.
Should you find an issue with one of our themes and a particular plugin, please bring it to our attention. We're happy to troubleshoot the issue to determine if anything can be done on our end to remedy the conflict.
Curb Appeal can built to work with or without an IDX service. If you don't have an IDX, we recommend that you install the AgentPress Listings plugin so that you can manually enter your listings for display.
Curb Appeal and Turn Key are very similar designs.
Turn Key is optimized for IDX Broker Platinum. That service is needed to use it.
Curb Appeal, on the other hand, can be used with nearly any IDX service or with no IDX at all.
Curb Appeal was designed to work with nearly any third-party IDX provider. Simply follow the IDX provider's instructions on how to integrate their service into a WordPress website.
