Genesis – Simple Defaults

Download This Plugin

Simple Defaults allows you to set some of the more common default items in Genesis Theme Frameworks including: Favicon, Comment Reply Title and Default post image fallback

We are open to suggestions on other defaults to add to the plugin, please leave a comment below with your suggestion.

Once installed, Simple Defaults adds an options page to the left hand admin page. This option page has fields for all the current default options available, simply enter the text / image link you want to use depending on what the field is asking for.

Q. Are the original defaults saved?
Unfortunately they currently are not.

My question is not answered here!
If you question is not listed here or in the comments below, please leave a comment and a member of the team will respond as soon as possible.

Installation is easy, just upload the Simple Default files to a Simple Defaults folder in the Word Press plugins directory, or find Simple Defaults in the plugin search and click “install”

This plugin requires Genesis Theme Framework version 1.5 or higher


  1. I am having problems changing the comment title. When I write “Leave a comment” and hit save, it erases what I wrote and then there is no title at all. It won’t let me save a new title. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.

    • Hi Kevin,

      Unfortunately the WordPress Plugin SVN lost a file for this plugin and it is currently broken.

      We are working on fixing it, and it should be ready in the next few days


      • Hi Kevin

        As a follow up, the Simple Defaults plugin has been re-released with the repairs requires for the functionality.

        The new version is 1.0.0 from 0.0.1


  2. Awesome! Thank you. This plugin saved me a lot of time. It would have taken me hours to figure out how to change the comment header. Thank you for sharing it with the world.
