I have always loved and recommended Genesis Framework for building websites. It has been my go to tool for starting any new project.
There is a strong community support for Genesis which provides needed help in time. This is the time to give something back to the community.
Here is a Free Plugin- Awesome ShortCode For Genesis, which allows you to add some much-needed functionality to your blog. I always install this along with the Genesis Framework on any of my projects including this blog.
What Can It Do For You?
There are multiple shortcodes are available with this plugin which can be easily accessed from the WordPress editor. These add the much-needed functionality to your Genesis installation.
This plugin adds custom box layout with multiple colors. This plugin supports multiple kinds of boxes like a box with header, expandable boxes etc.
This is an example of Simple Blue color box, which can host any responsive content.
Box With Header
This is an example of Simple Blue color box, which can host any responsive content. You can also decide to bold the header text
This is a good option for FAQ pages and you can choose to show the content by default or hide it at the start.
Youtube Responsive Video
You can easily add a youtube video with the supported Schema.org tags. The video will be responsive and will display correctly on Mobile, Tablet or Desktop. You can check the example video below, it has been added with Awesome ShortCode for Genesis.

You can also add column layout with this plugin, it supports two, three, four and six column layout. Genesis comes by default with those shortcodes but it was hard to enter them in the post without remembering these shortcodes. This plugin integrates those shortcodes and makes it easy to use it in your post.
You can use Code tag to add code snippet in your blog post but it has its own problems. Code tag doesn’t make it look pretty and align your code properly, you need to do some more work to make it look good. Gist is a better way to share the code, as it allows users to
Gist is a better way to share the code, as it allows users to copy the raw code, alignment looks good and you don’t have to manage multiple code snippets for multiple files.
Awesome ShortCodes For Genesis support Gist insertion in your blog post, so you can easily share the code in your posts.
If you run Giveaway on your blogs and use services like RaffleCopter or Punchtab, you can use this plugin to add those giveaways in your blog posts.
Currently this plugin only supports RaffleCopter and Punchtab, other services will be added later on.
