I 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 designedΒ FREE Genesis Child Theme?

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

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
  • Archive Page
  • Blog Page

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

  10. Nice work Kulwant bro, I loved this theme features, mostly I like these features: Inbuilt Newsletter, Inbuilt Related Posts and advertising options. Thanks for sharing this theme.

  11. got error

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare _verify_activate_widget() (previously declared in /home/sumit759/public_html/ in /home/sumit759/public_html/ on line 47

  12. Will surely try this theme, a 468×60 adspace beside logo will be awesome and the best thing is its free πŸ™‚

  13. Hi kulwant,
    Its very impressive theme, specially the social sharing buttons and adsense ad placement which can be easily used by any blogger.

  14. Thanks For the theme, Its really awesome. I loved the Inbuilt Newsletter and Inbuilt Related Posts feature. Theme looks elegant and has got the perfect colour options. πŸ™‚

  15. Hey brother, the demo is awesome but i am unable to download it. Returns to same page after click on download.

  16. Hello brother, i just installed it on my blog, can you please tell me how to make long posts look short paragraphs only.

    • In Genesis Setting set “Display Post Excerpts” in Content Archives Setting.

    • There is one widget space called “Before Post”. Drag text widget there and add the code.

      • Hello!

        And how to keep this 728×90 in the home page as well? Because this way, I can only see the ad before single posts. Thanks!

  17. 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. 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.

    • You are most welcome Mr. Andrew. I am working on another FREE theme now. Will release soon. πŸ™‚

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

  20. Great WordPress Genesis theme, i love the layout, the neat design and its simplicity. The background is mature….Thanks

  21. Hey,

    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!

    • Philip I made this theme for a single design only. If you know css then you can change anything in the theme. All the best.

      • Hey,

        I did the modification on the homepage. If you want to know how it looks like check my blog πŸ™‚


        • Great Efforts Philip Kleudgen. Work little more on it and it will look great !!

  22. 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 πŸ˜€

  23. 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.

    • 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.

      • Hi….. Please am having Problem with your theme sidebar.. am using to run my blog but the 125X125 ads banner are not side by side instead its in straight line

        • I am seeing all the widgets on your blog are on wrong position. Correct them first then let me know.

  24. Ok Bro…. I have installed it again, please check it. the 125X125 ads spot its in a straight line. its even using the quqttro theme css and yours on the site.

      • I know about your 125X125 ads widget. But i use as it tracks click,impression for advertisers works like buysellads. Or can you help me just auto resize the feature thumbnail image of my quattro genesis theme please?

        • add me on Facebook. Lets see the issue.

    The theme you provided is just superb.

  36. 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

    • 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.

  37. Many thanks for making this blog theme FREE

    This is as good as any theme on the Genesis Framework.

    See the Blogging Cage Theme live at:

    Thanks again!!!

  38. 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;

  39. Nice Theme Bro…!!!

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

    How can i change the logo of this Theme ??/

  40. There are about 36 results for .widget. I have to replace all of these or any specific one ?

    • Only one which have similar code. Try to match the code with given code and see what is modified.

      I just made background to none and removed border.

  41. ok… One more thing if you don’t mind. How can i change the logo image. ? The default logo image is named as “Blogging Cage”. I tried to replace the logo.png but again the same default image appears in header.

  44. Hi,
    Thanks for giving this theme freely. It is very nice.

    I just downloaded you theme. Can you please guide me on how to insert my Logo in the theme clearly.

      • Hey kulwant where would i find the image folder of the theme? In Control Panel??? or in the editor stylesheet??

  45. Hi, When i checking the theme files, I saw a image named ‘ebook-header’. What is it’s purpose and how to add this???

    • That was just header of optin-box in my old theme. So you can remove it if you don’t want.

  46. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My website is in the exact same niche as yours and my users would definitely benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Thanks!

    • Hesham, copying articles would not be a good practice. So I will not allow you to do this.
