This is a plugin that makes it incredibly easy to upload your logo to any Genesis Child Theme. You basically use WordPress Customizer, upload your logo, and your done.
It actually adds an image rather than an h1 tag and a background image, and also creates the class .site-logo. Since Genesis 2.0 images are responsive, it’ll fill the space it’s in. Meaning if you want it to shrink, you’ll have to adjust the width of the container in your css.
This is for Genesis 2.0 and up.
NOTE: Only works with Genesis Framework version 2.0 or higher as the parent theme. This is a paid premium product by StudioPress/ Copyblogger Media LLC, available via studiopress.com.

- Why won’t my logo show?
There are 2 things required to get your logo to show. A lot of themes use the Custom Header theme support, so you have to make sure that’s removed from your functions.php file. Also, a lot of themes use logos as background image, so in the CSS, under .site-title (or similar), there may be be an attribute called ‘text-indent’. Remove that.
- Why didn’t you include styles to make the logo appear nice?
Because every logo is different. It wouldn’t make sense to have a default style for a rectangle logo if you’re logo is round, etc. Adding a little padding, width, and margin in the style sheet should make every logo appear fine.
