A Splash Of Color

Parrot uses empty space, subtle splashes of blue, and pops of green, leaving plenty of room for almost any image to look like it fits.

Attract a broad user base with professional, inviting design choices.

The brands you trust most use blue and green for a reason; these colors represents authenticity and integrity.

Because Parrot is built on Upfront, an incredibly powerful drag and drop theme builder, you won’t need to hire a professional designer to make tweaks or adjust the layout.

News and Updates

Parrot is powered by our revolutionary ‘Upfront’ WordPress theme platform.

It’s incredibly easy to use – and there are two ways to get started.
1. Install ‘Parrot’ via the WPMU DEV Dashboard, then activate it.
or…
2. Download ‘Parrot’ and ‘Upfront’ itself separately (‘Upfront’ is the core framework and ‘Parrot’ is a starter theme.)

If you decide to activate Parrot later, you can do so from your WPMU DEV dashboard, or via the Appearances >> Themes tab in your wp-admin menu.

If you want to try out the theme first while retaining your current design we highly recommend using the Theme Tester plugin, or visit our Parrot demo.

When Parrot is active, you can initiate the Upfront editor via the Upfront link in your WordPress admin bar (the black bar at the top of the page while logged into your WP site) or by navigating to Appearances >> Customize in your wp-admin area.
