Headway 3.0 is Out – New Features and a Discount Coupon

After several weeks of anticipation, Headway 3.0 is now available. This latest version has been rebuilt from ground up and introduces significant new features as well as performance improvements. In case you weren’t around for earlier versions, Headway is a WordPress theme with drag-and-drop design capabilities. It is simple enough for beginning users and powerful enough for advanced users. Here’s a quick look at its new and enhanced features, the introduction of child themes and details about pricing.

Headway 3.0 Highlights

  • Headway has been Totally Rebuilt from scratch. Its optimized code base provides for faster performance.
  • Headway now supports Child Themes. You can, for example, select a theme for your law firm, fitness studio, or for your news website. These designs are ready to use out of the box. Read below more details.
  • The Layout Grid lets you design your website simply by drawing rectangles live on the page, no coding necessary. These blocks can be used to orient your header, navigation, content sections and more. Headway is a drag-and-drop framework.
  • The Visual Editor lets you specify fonts, colors, backgrounds and other elements (again, without coding). You can even create rounded corners and drop shadows. Changes are shown live on your screen.
  • Headway has Search Engine Optimization features. In 3.0, they have added rel=author for author links because of Google’s announcement that they will give more weight to XFN information in their rankings.
  • For Developers, the Live CSS editor now has syntax color-coding and the Blocks API makes it possible to create custom block types. Custom blocks can also be sold on the Headway Marketplace.

Introducing Child Themes

One of the most exciting features of Headway 3.0 is the introduction of child themes. These child themes give your Headway-powered website a professional look. Some are designed in-house and others are made by well-known WordPress theme designers including Organic Themes, Allure Themes and Press75. Others will come from independent designers via the Headway Marketplace. Child themes will be made available shortly.
