WordPress 4.7 default theme is for business
WordPress 4.7 is slated to be available early December but details of the release include quite a significant change, a first for WordPress; a business based default theme.
The new Twenty Seventeen WordPress theme is photo heavy and utilizes a cool featured image system, making the default theme Parallax -like out-the-box. The theme also ships with a floating primary navigation and social icons, about time! There’s also the ability to use video headers, it’s certainly the most immersive default theme to date.
They default theme ships with a small business scenario at it’s core; a small coffee house.
This is all exciting stuff, but does this mean WordPress has moved it’s average use case away from being a blogging platform to a setup business? or just a very playful move from Automattic.
