TOPIC: Headway 3.0 - does it work well?

Headway 3.0 - does it work well? 2 years 1 month ago #41238

I have a custom Theme in Wordpress, designed by a consulting company. I would like to make changes to the format, color, look, etc. more easily and I do not know CSS or HTML. In reviewing Headway Themes 3.0 it looks like the way to go, but I would like some feedback from those who have used it. What will happen to my current theme and any specific customized settings? are there any downfalls to using this? Thanks.

Hi Daniel0814,

I don't have any specific advice for you on Headway, but I can give you some advice on changing platforms and methods.

While you are evaluating Headway, don't do any changes on your current site. Make a complete copy of your site on another server or in another directory. I don't know how to judge the effects of switching without actually doing it. There are so many variables involved it will probably be a process that takes some time and testing.

Hopefully someone else here has experience with Headway and can give you specific answers. I just wanted to add some advice about good development practices.

Cheers,
Ed

Hi and welcome, Daniel!

Headway theme framework is independent of your current theme and there's no way to plug in Headway onto your current theme. If you'd like to use the Headway theme framework then you'd have to recreate your current theme onto it.

By the way, we have an HTML class and a CSS class available to you as part of your subscription :)
