Studio: A new theme for WordPress, Multisite and BuddyPress
We’re excited to announce our latest theme, Studio, for WordPress, BuddyPress, and Multisite!
What is Studio?
“A balance of beautiful, pixel-perfect design with flexible, easy-to-navigate customization. “
WordPress is always about pushing boundaries for us when it comes to themes and with Studio we’ve taken our themes to the next level with a ton of new features.
On the surface Studio looks simple with it’s attractive slide show and modern styling – it’s under the surface this becomes a true power house. Studio sees us reviewing theme options and including a lot of asked for features.
Take a look at just some of the features…
- Google Font Directory – yep we’re just as bored as you are of web safe fonts and we decided to write a little function that lets you not only pick your normal fonts but also lets you use the Google Font directory.
- Simple SEO – we’re great believers in not bloating your install with 1000s of plugins and as a result we have built in simple global SEO for you. Don’t worry though we’ve turned it off by default so you can choose if you use it.
- Sliding BuddyPress Community Panel – building on Sarah’s work we took the basic JQuery script at the core of her great plugin: Sliding Ajax Login panel and built it into this theme with some simple options. Get an amazing sliding panel that only shows if you have BuddyPress enabled and allows easy navigation around the site all in the theme styling.
- Footer content – you can add Google Analytics and also links or text now to the footer of this theme
- Build your own home page – turn on and off content blocks, slide show, headers and widget areas to literally create many different variations on your home page. Be it reusing the theme or creating just once – you choose what you want the home page to have as contents with our easy theme options.
- BuddyPress built in – we believe that a BuddyPress theme shouldn’t mean less design and we’ve kept this in mind. Studio works out of the box with BuddyPress and we’ve also made sure it looks just as good as the WordPress bit. We also made sure without BuddyPress your theme will work just as well – we believe in choice.
- Content areas by the bucket load – we’ve added a ton of content areas from headers through to content buckets as we call them and a slide show to show off your images. Studio really is about making your content king. All of your content can be set up using our easy to use theme options found under the Appearance menu.
- Sign up box – we know a priority is getting people to sign up and what better than a sign up section?
- Widgets by the ton – with Studio you literally have a widget area for every occasion.
- Standard WordPress features built in – custom headers, navigation, featured images… Studio does it all out of the box.
- Tons of our usual theme goodies – theme options, customization to create your own color scheme, 4 color schemes, multiple languages, parent and child themes… oh yes and amazing support – what more could you want?
