Blogging Cage Theme: FREE Genesis Child Theme

Share on Pinterest

ytI am very happy to see the success of Blogging Cage as it is getting popularity day by day. When I started this blog then I was using Headlines Theme by WooThemes and run my blog for 6+ months with that theme only. As I digged more into blogging then I came to know that there were some amazing Frameworks like Genesis and Thesis out there. At first I was very much confused about getting started with any of the Framework. Soon one blogger Romy Singh who blog at came in touch with me and he taught me that how could I design the Genesis Child Themes at my own.

Why I designed FREE Genesis Child Theme ?

I am getting many request in a single day about the theme of Blogging Cage as I have designed it very uniquely and with decent color combination. So here I am giving my FREE Genesis Child Theme to all my readers and friends of my readers.

Features of Blogging Cage Theme

I have made the theme which is looking almost same as present Blogging Cage Theme and added many more features.

  • Full Width Design
  • 728×90 ads code before post
  • 3 Widget Footer
  • 300×250 ads Widget
  • Inbuilt Newsletter
  • Inbuilt Related Posts
  • More advanced Featured Post Widget
  • Content Boxes and Color Buttons
  • Well Aligned Images in Posts
  • 428×65 ads space in header right
  • Author Image along with Posts
  • Post info below Headlines
  • beautifully designed comment section
  • Next Post Previous Post option

I will be working more on the theme and you will see more advanced version of our theme very soon.

NOTE: This Themes will work if you have installed Genesis Framework Already.

NOTE: I have worked hard on this theme to spread love in Blogging community. If you want to appreciate my efforts then don’t remove the footer credit link.

  15. Remix Blog Ideas says

  16. Remix Blog Ideas says

    How to set the 728*90 ad work. I mean where to put the link to show ad

  17. says

    This is very nice of you to have this for free. I know that designing these things are murder and you could have every right to charge for it, but thanks!

  18. says

    Great! I’m a Genesis user so it’s always awesome to see new free child themes. Thanks so much for designing this and releasing it for the rest of us.

  19. Sandeep says

    What to say !! You made my and new bloggers day. Thanks for the theme. I will be waiting for more updates.

  20. says


    this looks really great for a free Premium theme! Is it possible to have the top left and right widget areas and one bottom widget area like it was in the previous church child theme? Then it would fit my needs perfectly!

    Anyway, thumbs up!

  21. Amit Kolambikar says

    AWESOME THEME!! But sir, I am not able to download it could u just check if the LINK is still active or not ? Please reply soon 😀

  22. says

    Great Theme Kulwant,
    I am now using your theme on my blog, but the only problem I have with this theme is that i have to add the reduce sizes or width of images before they are reduced to fit the screen, especially at the sidebar. In my previous theme, no matter how big the size of your image, it will never overlap the sidebar or the content area width, it will auto adjust to the maximum width of the theme sidebar or content area.
    I hope you will fix this in your future updates.

    • says

      Sorry to hear that you faced difficulty Joseph.

      I haven’t added that feature in my theme yet. Here is little piece of code which you can add in your theme style.css.
      Here are the steps.
      1. Go to Appearance > Editor
      2. Search Image
      When you will find the following code
      /* Images
      ———————————————————— */
      3. Add this code
      img {
      height: auto;
      max-width: 100%;

      4. Search #sidebar img
      5. Add following code inside { }
      max-width: 100%;

      If you are facing any difficulty to implement this then let me know.

      • says

  31. says

    Just want to say you Thank you. i searched a lot to find a WP theme for my New blog, but did’t got success.
    The theme you provided is just superb.

  32. Akshay says

    hey…your theme is awesome. i really liked it. i’m using it now in my blog pls tell me how to change the logo? when i activate logo, it shows your site’s logo..
    pls be kind to tell me

    • says

      Akshay, I am glad to see that you have started using my theme. For using logo you will have to upload one image in image folder of theme. Make a png file for your logo and name it logo.png and then simply upload in image folder.

      Note: Check the dimensions of my logo before making your own png image.

  33. Sumit Gahlawat says

    Thanks Kulwant Nagi for such a nice theme. I have installed this but I am facing a problem. A white line is appearing above search bar in header. How to remove this.

      Search .widget in your style.css and replace it completely with following code.

      .widget {
      position: relative;
      margin: 0 0 20px 0;
      background: none;
      padding: 0;
      color: #555;
      font-family: Georgia,”Times New Roman”,Times,serif;
      line-height: 20px;

    Nice Theme Bro…!!!

    I’m new to WordPress and like this theme a lot.

    Thanks! once again.

  62. says

    Not a Big fan of Genesis all the way. But your work is really recommendable and you came with a nice usable theme for all the genesis users. One point, I want to ask ” How we can add our own functions and features in Genesis child theme and I have some knowledge to enhance the loading speed of any WordPress based website”.

  63. says

    Perfect theme, better than most of the official Genesis child themes available out there. I think it’ll be quite suitable for my blogs and also for some of my static sites. Thanks a lot for sharing it brother :)

  64. says

    I was currently using dedicated child theme but today I am going to change my blog theme with your. Thanks a lot Nagi bro.Your Work is appreciable. Love your blog content and design its too inspirational to see your work. Thanks again bro

  65. says

    Thanks for the lovely theme bro but I am new to this WordPress and all so would you please tell me how can I get the parent theme for genesis because I guess this theme won’t be of any use right?

  66. says

    how to download this theme?? i just see the name and email address box but nothing else!!! plz fix it!!!

  67. Chao says

    Thanks for sharing this theme Kulwant Nagi. I like the appearance, but I think the design is a little too big for my taste. If the design is similair size like your home page here it’s be perfect!

  68. says

    Thanks for Free neat & clean Genesis theme, i have never bought any theme. I have just downloaded easily, thanks again for making site navigation easy

    Its really Great….

  69. says

    Hey Kulwant,
    It will be so great of you if you can release this theme for Blogger as I am into blogging but using blogger as a platform rather than wordpress.

  70. says

    Thank You Kulwant Nagi for Sharing your Priceless Theme with us.I will use your Theme on my new Blog(

  71. Emir says

    Great theme but when I change the color style nothing happens, why is this? Where in CSS can I change this?

  72. Bryan says

    Is there a way to get the older version of this theme with the menu not at the top, but in the traditional place (like you have here?)
