The Genesis framework by StudioPress is probably the best WordPress theme framework on the market. Unfortunately, most of the available child themes have a prebuilt layout for the home page, that can’t be easily customized, unless you are a developer, as it requires dealing with templates, hooks, etc. On the other side, the Page Builder plugin by SiteOrigin allows you to create responsive page layouts using widgets with simple drag-and-drop operations. You may combine Genesis and Page Builder to build a flexible layout for your home page, by configuring a static page in your WordPress Reading Settings and building that page using Page Builder, but there are still some caveats when doing this, related to how Genesis handles static pages (page title, layout, styles, etc). This plugin fills the gap between Genesis themes and Page Builder, providing a quick and ready solution to let the two play nicely together.
