WordPress 4.7 ships with the new Twenty-Seventeen business-oriented default theme.
We’ll compare it with the Twenty-Sixteen and Twenty-Fifteen themes which happen to be more blog-oriented.
The Twenty-Seventeen theme works with the WordPress core software.
Version 4.7 introduces new features:
- video headers,
- starter content, and
- edit shortcuts.
The default homepage features a
- fullscreen header image with navigation directly underneath, a
- call-to-action section, and
- various sections for services,
- blog posts,
- location, and
- featured content.
Also introduced in this version is a technique to override styles and scripts when you include the respective file in a child theme.
We’ll explore how easy it is to make a child theme with the get_theme_file_uri() function.
