In this update, we are focusing on customization. We have a laundry list of things below of options we would like to add. We may add more, and we may end up removing some of these options, at least for this update.

While we add customization, we are always trying to balance giving more capabilities and features to users, while maintaining simplicity in implementation. What deserves to be an option? What do people really want? When do we decide to make a template vs. a child theme? If it is an option, how we collect input? All these questions need to be answered before we add an option.

Custom Footer Content (closes #94 )

  • Add template tags - {site title}, {site description}, {year} (current), {company}, {address}, {telephone}, {email}, {fax}
  • Add theme options for inputs: Company, Address, Telephone, Email, Fax, Footer text, "Powered by"
  • Generate footer content using template tags, theme options, and schema

Custom Fonts (closes #93 )

  • Add top 5 fonts from Google Fonts CDN
  • Add options for fonts

Custom Colors

Part of this has been removed from this update. This is a bigger project than we thought, and requires some discussion on CSS vs PHP vs LESS and how much control to give

  • Add options to customize primary, success, warning, danger, and info colors
  • Add options to customize navigation colors
  • Add options to customize .canvas color

Layout Options (closes #111 )

  • Add widget areas and more options
  • Add optional "featured posts" carousel to header area
  • Add options to specify behavior for elements in small, medium, large and extra-large screens
  • Featured Image options for posts
  • Featured Image options for pages

New templates

  • Clear - focus on just your content
  • Minimal - focus on content, includes one widget area (except header widget area)
  • Slim
  • Narrow
  • Full (default)
  • Wide


  • Upgrade to Bootstrap 3.0.2
