Most website owners on the planet prefer to use WordPress to power their websites. This is really not a surprise because if there is one thing WordPress is notable for, it is its user-friendly interface and ease of use. As newer versions of WordPress it comes with more and more amazing feature. Some of the most amazing features of version 3.4 is highlighted in this article.
Live Theme Preview
When you go to the Manage Themes section, you will observe an icon saying “Live Preview”. When you click the link, you will be redirected to a new page showing you precisely what how your website would look, if you applied the theme. However, whenever you do this (except you decide to apply that theme), your users, who are currently on your site, will still be served with the current theme, so only you can see these changes and this gives you enough room to experiment and play around with as many themes as possible.
The advantage of this theme is in the fact that you don’t need to actually apply a theme to your live site, before you know exactly how it will look.
While previewing your theme, it also comes with a customizing tool which allows you to alter a lot of elements on the previewed page even without eventually applying the theme. The beauty here is that you can actually pretend for a second that you’ve applied the theme and you want to try and upgrade some features to suit your need, so that you can see exactly what your site will look like even after all the customizations you had in mind.
You can tweak around a lot of options like the site title and the tagline, the header image, the colors, the background image, the static front page and even the navigation. If eventually you love the changes you’ve made, all you need to do is the click the “save and activate” button and all the changes you’ve made to your site in the preview becomes implemented into your site, as it goes live. On the other hand, if you don’t like the look of your site in the preview (even after all the tweaking around) and you want to revert to the current theme or even try another one, all you need do is to hit the “cancel” button and it all goes into thin air.
Without a doubt, these theme options go a long way to make your WordPress site management, a lot easier.
