Announcement is a niche theme that is perfect for the most special announcements in your life. Use any of our preset homepage templates to announce your wedding, the birth of a new baby, the graduation of your eldest or the launch of your new business. And if you didn’t want that, use the flexible component system to bend Announcement to your desire.
The homepage is where Announcement’s main magic happens. Consisting of a component-based layout (with presets available for births, weddings, graduations and business websites), Announcement aims to showcase your content on a single page using photograph sliders, content areas, blog post lists, comments and widgetized regions in the footer area.
The Announcement photograph slider highlights noteworthy content on your website. Clicking each slide’s photograph displays content in a styled popup window.
Custom Post Layouts
With Announcement you can create unique layouts for each of your pages. With the custom settings panel you can specify 1 to 3 columns for the page content and decide on a layout for those columns.
Announcement’s layouts are based on a component structure, creating virtually endless layout possibilities. Several layout presets for births, weddings, graduations and business websites are available, as well as a custom layout option using widgets. The components include a photograph slider, countdown timer, page content, headline text, baby statistics grid, a video switcher and blog, amongst others.
Baby Statistics Grid
If you’re using Announcement to announce the birth of your bundle of joy, we’ve provided a component just for the occasion. With the Baby Statistics grid, Announcement provides fields to specify your newborn’s weight, height, eye color, hair color and a page with more details about your new family member.
You can customize the typography in the theme to suit, and there is full support for Google Fonts in the font selector.
The theme has 1 widgetized sidebar, 1 homepage specific widgetized regions, and 4 footer regions, and as always comes with 8 custom Woo Widgets (Ad Space, Blog Author, WooTabs, Subscribe, Feedback, Search, Flickr and Twitter).
