Headway Theme 3.0 for WordPress Released

Headway — The Drag & Drop Theme For WordPress

Headway Theme 3.0 was released last month and comes with a host of new features for the WordPress theme. The developers of Headway built version 3 from the ground up by writing all new code. The interface is familiar to existing users of Headway but include a lot of new design differences. For example there is now the option to use a grid layout to design the GUI of the website. The new version also includes the ability to use child themes giving more flexibility to the framework.

All of the features from pervious releases of Headway are still included and allow for more flexibility. So far I am very impressed with the new version of Headway but I will have a full review of the new version in the coming weeks once I have had time to design a site with it.

    I’ve been using Headway on multiple sites for over 2 years and am a big fan, but the premature release of 3.0 has introduced some unfortunate issues:

    > It was released too soon and is still buggy, so if you’re thinking of using it on an important site, you might want to wait a couple months. I have converted a test site to 3.0.4 in order to become familiar with the new theme before upgrading my important sites.

    > As of 01/01/2012 there is NO upgrade path from 2.x, though they say they will have one by February 1, so any existing 2.x sites have to be rebuilt from the ground up. Even after an upgrade path is available, upgraded sites may need some tweaking. I will wait for reviews of how well the upgrade path is working before upgrading my sites.

    > A really disappointing development is the way some of the Headway Team, particularly CEO Grant Griffiths and AJ Morris, are prone to behave like children on the Headway support forums, posting rude, condescending and insulting comments directed at users who are just trying to learn how to get the software to work for them. However, the other Headway support staff members, including HW Genius Clay Griffiths, are always cordial, patient and extremely helpful.

    • Thanks for you insight. I agree with you that it was a little premature to release, I have been working with it now for a couple of weeks and there are still some problems with 3.0.x. It is good for test sites and demo at this point but I think they are headed in the right direction on the new code.
