On the 9th of February 2010, a new theme was released into the wide world of WordPress. While seemingly an every day occurrence, little did we know the impact this theme would make. Crafted by Magnus Jepson, co-founder of WooThemes, Canvas version 1.0 was posted for sale on WooThemes.com.
Now in 2014, Canvas has grown in popularity in leaps and bounds, with developers and website beginners alike, offering a framework for advanced development, coupled with an intuitive configuration screen, for customising the design of your Canvas theme without touching any code.
The first of our Canvas child themes, Uno is aimed at helping you to engage with your customers, by showcasing the products you are most proud of in your store. With a large hero image and text area, Uno makes it really easy for you to welcome your customers to your online store.
Uno’s sibling, Duo is aimed at personal professionals, looking to showcase themselves, their knowledge and their services. Whether you’re a business consultant, a freelance web designer or a tennis coach, Duo integrates seamlessly with our WooCommerce Bookings extension and WooCommerce to help you to sell your time and services with a few small clicks.
When are these themes available?
Both Uno and Duo are available for purchase right now from our catalog. Please note, a copy of Canvas is required in order to run either theme, so please be sure you’ve got your copy of Canvas as well.
What’s next for Canvas?
Being a part of Canvas’ evolution is a very special place to be. We’re glad to share this place with you all. In 2014, Canvas is responsive, WooCommerce compatible, includes a collection of useful page templates, a neat mobile navigation menu and a myriad of other features including full width header and footer sections (two of my favourite settings). Today marks the next evolution in the Canvas product line.
Sharing this special time with you all is very important to us. To this end, we’d like to direct your attention towards our Canvas Ideas board. If you have ideas for features you’d like to see in Canvas, or a child theme you’d like to see us explore, please feel free to post your idea on this board, where the community can discuss and vote on your ideas.Visit the Canvas Ideas Board
We’re excited to be sharing this milestone with you all, and look forward to your feedback. Enjoy, everyone!
