01) WordPress 4.7 & Twenty-Seventeen

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.

Twenty Fifteen

Our 2015 default theme is clean, blog-focused, and designed for clarity. Twenty Fifteen’s simple, straightforward typography is readable on a wide variety of screen sizes, and suitable for multiple languages. We designed it using a mobile-first approach, meaning your content takes center-stage, regardless of whether your visitors arrive by smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.

Twenty-Sixteen

Twenty Sixteen is a modernized take on an ever-popular WordPress layout — the horizontal masthead with an optional right sidebar that works perfectly for blogs and websites. It has custom color options with beautiful default color schemes, a harmonious fluid grid using a mobile-first approach, and impeccable polish in every detail. Twenty Sixteen will make your WordPress look beautiful everywhere.

Twenty-Seventeen

Twenty Seventeen brings your site to life with header video and immersive featured images. With a focus on business sites, it features multiple sections on the front page as well as widgets, navigation and social menus, a logo, and more. Personalize its asymmetrical grid with a custom color scheme and showcase your multimedia content with post formats. Our default theme for 2017 works great in many languages, for any abilities, and on any device.
