Headway Review: Premium WordPress Theme, Is it Worth it?
It’s really getting competitive in the Premium WordPress ThemesMarket.I’m actually happy about that… because it means that we… the consumer win. With fierce competition, developers have to offer more and more value.
I don’t know about you… but I’ve had major headaches in the past with WordPress Themes. They have been horribly coded, very buggy, and would completely break down if I just wanted to make the smallest of changes.
Headway being a very flexible Premium WordPress Theme, has gotten a lot of market appeal over the powerhouses from DIYThemes and Woo Themes.
So when I purchased the Headway Theme I was really excited to jump right in headfirst and see what the hype was about. Let’s take a look at what Headway can do for you.
Headway is looking to be the new king of WordPress Themes… and it’s making some good noise in the process. It kinda looks like they have Thesis in their crosshairs.
Let’s see if they can deliver.
Complete Customization Control
While this video is good, it doesn’t quite do Headway justice as to how much customization can be done. If you’ve have ever spent hours online looking for a workaround to a problem that you are having with your theme.You’ll love how instantly flexible Headway is a a WordPress Theme. It’s ridiculous when I think about how much time I’ve wasted trying to find a bandaid solution.
You literally have control over every part of your website. Headway has the ability to drag and drop custom content anywhere on the page. You can design your site in any layout that you like… since it’s all done visually. You don’t waste time tweaking code.
Headway is not about code… it’s about control!
Let’s say that you needed to add a slideshow gallery or a twitter feed to your sidebar… all you do is just drag and drop it where you want it… Amazing!
How about showcasing a post or an announcement… again drag and drop it anywhere. It’s really that easy, simplicity at its finest.
With the control factor being so tight… some people may be overwhelmed a bit. However once you get the hang of it, you really have complete control of your site.
