WordPress Plugins add functionality to a WordPress Website. Many are free, some have upgrade options after you upload the plugin. Be careful about adding too many plugins as they can slow down your website. Here is a list of Genesis Plugins that were created to work with Studiopress Themes.
Genesis Portfolio Pro
Genesis Portfolio Pro by Studiopress adds a “Portfolio” post so you can create portfolio entries containing images and galleries to display visual content.
A Portfolio grid is created in the default template displaying a landscape of featured images. Controlling the galleries, text, and images is done in a simple page edit.
Simply find the Portfolio menu, click ‘Add New’ and add your images. Once you have a few of these, your work will be displayed in a grid.
You can find this by going to your Plugins, Add-New, Search or click here to download.
The agentpress Listings plugin is for real estate websites. It uses custom post types, custom taxonomies, as well as widgets that create a listings management system. Using the taxonomy creator, you can categorize listings the way you like.
