Trying Headway Themes
Okay, so I’ve started using Headway Themes for a couple of websites who’s clients needed some authoring and widget functionality but who I didn’t think needed to plunge into the deep end with something as big as Joomla.
I installed Headway with no problem. Fell in love with the ability to literally grab chunks ofthe site such as the header, footer, widgets and content areas and move and resize them any way that I like. Seriously, someone pleeeeease do this with Joomla!
So far I’ve used a number of it’s built-in widgets including random image widget, custom footers and headers, and a photo gallery (very slick). I’ve used Headway to switch up my menu, completely change the layout of the divs, and do crazy-easy (and quick) text style mods.
It’s rediculous that it doesn’t have an automatic option for rounded corners or body background images when it has so many other more complicated functions BUT alas, having to use the text editor for a line or two won’t kill me I guess.
With the price and the pure hours of time saved on css modification for layout, Headway’s looking like a great buy so far. Check it out for yourself if you don’t believe me.
Anyways, neither of my sites are launched yet, so once I’ve achieved publication, I’ll update this with my final vote for or against Headway.
