Headway Premium WordPress ThemeIf you haven’t heard of the new Headway theme for WordPress, you are missing out on something awesome. It’s unlike any other premium WordPress theme currently available.

Video Overview

Here is a quick video that demonstrates the Headway theme and what makes it unique:

As you can see, this is a very powerful theme but is easy to use. Here’s a breakdown of some of the key features of the Headway theme:

Layout Editor

By far the coolest thing about Headway is the drag and drop layout editor. It allows you to drag and drop your blogs layout for any page temple, as well as for any specific page. In other words, you can customize how your blog index looks, your home page, or even customize your about page to look different than other pages.

Here’s how it looks:

Headway Layout Editor

It’s an incredible feature that blows away anything available with other premium WordPress themes.


When using the layout editor, the theme gives you the option to use leafs. Leafs are basically like widgets, where each one of them does a different function. The leafs can be added to any layout and are easy to move around using drag and drop.

An example of a leaf is the content leaf. What this does is displays your content as any other WordPress theme would do.

What really makes leafs amazing is the fact that you can create sidebars with them. You are no longer limited to a certain amount of widgetized sidebars. You can even add one to your footer which can be very difficult using other themes.

Color Picker

Another cool thing about the Headway theme is the built in color picker. This allows you to change the colors of different elements on your blog. Want your links to be a different color? No problem! Simply choose the color you want to use and Headway will automatically make the change.

When using the color picker, you will see a screen that looks like this:

Search Engine Optimization

The Headway theme is completely ready to go in terms of search engine optimization. It has a built in feature that allow you change meta information for your posts and pages. Therefore you can customize the title, keywords, and description for every post and page on your blog.

Here’s the search engine optimization box that displays on the write post/page screens:


It even allows you to nofollow all the links in the post, something that no other themes can do at the moment.

As you can see, Headway will give you much better search engine results than using a different theme. Any other theme would require you to use plugins to do similiar things in terms of search engine optimization.
