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 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 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.
