Find out how to remove the Genesis SEO settings section from the WordPress customizer using code.
One practice I recommend, as a good fan of minimalism, is to remove all elements of a child theme that you will not be using.
This is especially useful for your customers, as you will reduce the noise and encourage them to have a better view of the settings that really need to be changed.
An ideal place to apply this useful ‘cleaning’ and leave only the 100% necessary elements is the WordPress customizer. Why?
