That’s right, I’m bringing WordPress themes back to Georgia Lou Studios!
My first new WordPress theme will launch Tuesday, November 20th, 2018!
All of my new WordPress themes will be based off of our existing, most popular Blogger.com themes, starting with Emilia. Coming soon will be Jemma, Savannah, Anaise, Adelle and more.
I will be retiring some of our less popular Blogger.com themes. We currently have 21 Blogger.com themes. It difficult to update that many templates every time a change happens in Blogger. And since I will have WordPress versions of all of our current themes, that would mean 42 themes to keep updated! We will keep 12 – 15 Blogger.com designs with matching WordPress themes available.
About the WordPress Themes
The new WordPress themes will be standard WordPress themes (not Genesis child themes). They are built on a whole new theme base (not our old themes) and have a lot of new features:
- GDPR Ready
- Gutenberg Ready
- WordPress 5.0 Ready
- Install/Setup Wizard
- New slider designs
- More blog layout
- Color + font presets for easy customization
- And More!
I’ve worked very hard to create themes that have lots of options and features but are easy to use and setup. Each theme will also come with easy-to-import demos to help you launch your site quickly.
Amazing Help Docs
In addition to written docs, this time around, all of our WordPress themes will include videos to help you get your theme setup. You’ll also get access to our library of WordPress 101 videos if you’re new to WordPress. These videos cover WordPress basics.
Committed to Producing Amazing Gutenberg Themes
Our new themes are optimized for the new Gutenberg editor. (You can also still easily use the Classic Editor if you’re not quite ready).
Some designers seem to be afraid of Gutenberg or essentially ignoring it. Yes, WordPress will support the Classic Editor plugin through the end of 2021, but that’s no reason not to embrace Gutenberg. I really like building posts and pages with Gutenberg.
The future of WordPress is a bit unclear, but GLS is committed to producing great Gutenberg Ready themes.
