Neve WordPress Theme News #1 – Updates, New Features and Demo Sites


Hello WordPress enthusiasts and welcome to
Neve news. This is a new video series in which I’ll constantly
show new things and updates for our Neve WordPress theme. I will talk about the latest features as well
as starter sites and how to use everything all together to get the best out of it. First of all, I want to say thank you to all
of our users. I mean you and each individual or business
out there that helped us reach 100K installations so far. Because of you and your honest feedback, we
managed to bring it to the first page in popular themes near themes like Astra, Hello, OceanWP
and so on. I know that this is a huge responsibility
for us as a team and we need to work together to do our best to make it exactly as you guys
want it to become. So feel free to leave a comment below and
tell us what we should do to make Neve even better. Now, let’s talk about some cool new features
we’ve added lately. To avoid any confusion, I want to say that
we offer Neve for free as a WordPress theme which you can find on WordPress.org under
themes, on your dashboard in Appearance / Themes or you can download it from our website as
well. For more features and access to the Pro site
demos, you need to install and activate the Neve Pro addon which you can download as a
plugin in your purchase history on your Themeisle.com account. I have already published a video to help you
understand the difference between Neve Free and Pro and you can find the link to that
video in the description box. In this video, I will focus mainly on the
free theme but I will give you some hints about the new things added to the pro version
as well. So, let me open the customizer to show you
what is new there. I would like to import a starter site before
moving on so I’ll go back to my dashboard, go to Neve Options, Site Library. As you can see here, we have more free starter
sites available for Brizy, and Gutenberg, which means that now you can edit these starter
sites with the block editor of WordPress. Although I prefer Elementor, in this video
I will stay with the default editor and see how it works. Web Agency and Blogger are the latest demos
here, and I will preview the Blog demo, then I can click on import over here. This process will put together everything
you need. The demo content on the blog as well as everything
you see on these pages, including the homepage. To display this contact form on your website,
you need to install and activate the WP Forms plugin. Once everything is imported, you can go ahead
and add your own content or click here to view your website. If you click on add your own content, the
block editor of WordPress will open and you can start customizing everything on your homepage. You can turn off the sidebar if you want a
clear view when editing the content only, and turn it back on when you want to change
the settings of a section or block. Besides the Obit Fox Companion plugin, you
get the Gutenberg Blocks and Template Library by Otter plugin which gives you access to
blocks with even more options. If you click on this Otter Options icon in
the top right corner, you can set site-wide block defaults for these blocks: Advanced Heading, Button Group, Font Awesome
Icons, Section and Section Column. Each section and block of Otter comes with
plenty of options that are well organized and easy to use. The simple heading block of WordPress gives
you these options while the Advanced Heading block of Otter allows changing the Typography
Settings, Highlight Color, Animations and more. If you go to Otter when adding a new block
and pick Section, you can see that in the following step, you need to pick a layout,
if you want to start from scratch. To use a template in the library, click this
button and pick one from the categories in this drop-down. Let’s see what is new in the customizer of
Neve. Each WordPress theme comes with unique settings
you can access by going to Customize under Appearance. I will click leave over here to keep the original
look of my homepage. As you can see, there is nothing new in the
Layout settings where you have access to Container Settings, Content / Sidebar, Blog and Archive
as well as Single Post. All settings in the customizer are pretty
much the same. The header section, though, comes with these
header presets now where you can pick the Classic alignment, Inverted, Centered, or
Spaced. Each header preset comes with three sections
where you can add these components and if you enable the Header Booster of Neve Pro,
you get even more components to choose from. The sidebar settings are bigger and work smoothly
when you want to change the row height, skin mode, as well as the background. You can use a featured image as well in the
background of your headers and with Neve Pro, you can design conditional headers that will
help you display different headers for your Homepage, Blog page, and on your Shop page. I will come back soon with another video and
teach you how to use the power of WooCommerce and Neve Pro to create an amazing online store
step by step. If you are using Shopisle, our old eCommerce
theme which is no longer maintained, I will show you how to move from Shopisle to Neve
safely, so stay tuned. Until next time, make sure you subscribe and
ring the bell to get notified when new videos are published. Se you in the next one, cheers.
