I got my 'Page' and 'Blog List' Page working.. But when i click on one of my Post... the Layout is different .. I want to edit it. Where can i find that?

You edit the post page by using Genesis hooks (actions and / or filters). You can do this in the functions.php file or in a WordPress template file located in your child theme directory.

If you use a template file, add the genesis() function call to the end of that file and you action and filters calls above it.

For example, here is a single.php child theme file which changes the default Post Info (the byline) and the Post Meta (the categories, tags, etc. line) for a post.


/** Customize the post info function. */
add_filter( 'genesis_post_info', 'wpse_108715_post_info_filter' );

/** Customize the post meta function. */
add_filter( 'genesis_post_meta', 'wpse_108715_post_meta_filter' );


 * Change the default post information line.
function wpse_108715_post_info_filter( $post_info ) {
    $post_info = '[post_author_posts_link] [post_date]';
    return $post_info;

 * Change the default post meta line.
function wpse_108715_post_meta_filter( $post_meta ) {
    $post_meta = '[post_categories] [post_edit] [post_tags] [post_comments]';
    return $post_meta;

I used the post shortcode functions provided by Genesis in these functions.
