Weaver II – Our Legacy Theme
For a long time, Weaver II has been the easiest way to create your own site design. Now, our new theme, Weaver Xtreme is taking Weaver II‘s place. While we will continue to support Weaver II and Weaver II Pro with bug and compatibility fixes, Weaver II will not be getting any major updates or new features.
We highly recommend that if you are new to Weaver Themes, that you start with our new flagship theme, Weaver Xtreme.
Weaver Xtreme is simply better than Weaver II – it has all the great features of Weaver II described below – plus even more!
10 Reasons to Switch to Weaver II
(and 10 More Reasons)
- Integrated Mobile Device Support
Weaver II lets you create a customized look, but perhaps the single best thing about it is the automatic and integrated support for Mobile Devices. Providing a great looking and easy to navigate Mobile view for your visitors is essential for any modern web site. Weaver II’s integrated mobile support does that automatically, and your visitors will see a site that matches you regular site. There simply is no better Mobile support available.
- Totally Customizable
Weaver II’s easy to use administrative interface makes it easy for anyone to change virtually every aspect of the site. Change colors, fonts, sidebar layouts. Customize individual pages and posts. Create multiple views of your posts using easy to define filters. Show or hide different elements of pages and posts. You can even easily add your own CSS snippets (but you don’t have to!).
- Great for Newcomers to WordPress
Weaver II lets anyone create a custom site. You don’t need to know anything about programming, HTML, or CSS to create a great customized site (although knowing about those won’t hurt anything). Simply start with one of over 20 different predefined sub-themes. Then open the Weaver II Admin interface, and select colors for easy to use color pickers. Scan through the options to selectively display or hide standard page and post items. Select from several options for displaying your menu.
- Great for Advanced Web Designers
While Weaver II is totally usable by newcomers, it has a complete set of advanced options that allow advanced users complete control. Provide custom CSS for any element on the site. Add custom HTML code nearly anywhere using HTML insert blocks. Use the advanced shortcodes to control content. Create custom blog pages using the “Page with Posts” page template to filter posts by category, tags, and more. Hide elements. Save your work to move to other sites. The possibilities are endless.
- Real Help Files
Each Weaver II option includes a brief explanation of what it does. But beyond that, Weaver II includes extensive documentation, easily accessible from the admin interface. You can instantly access relevant sections of the Help file by clicking the (?) buttons found throughout the Admin interface.
- Active User Community and Help Forum
The original Weaver theme has been around for nearly two years. There is an active user community, and an active support forum.
- Integrated Shortcodes and Widgets
One important aspect of website design is creating a unified look. While there are thousands of available plugins for WordPress, Weaver II provides many of its own shortcodes and widgets designed to ensure a unified look. Some of the features include YouTube and Vimeo shortcodes, external RSS feeds, selective display of posts, selective display on mobile/non-mobile views, two-column text widets, and more.
- Support for latest WordPress Features
Weaver II includes support for all the latest WordPress features: HTML5, Featured Images, Post Formats, Custom Post Types, SEO, and more.
- Flexible Layouts
Weaver II supports several different sidebar layouts: left sidebar, right sidebar, split sidebar, double sidebar left or right, no sidebars, multiple footer widget areas, and several custom widget areas. You can select different sidebar layouts globally, as well as on a per page basis. Weaver II also provides several page templates, including double columns. You can select one, two, or three columns for your post pages.
- Weaver II Pro
While the free Weaver II basic version is one of the most flexible and advanced WordPress themes available, Weaver II Pro adds even more features. It offers more detailed control over various display elements, as well as extended control over the Mobile View. It supports additional HTML insert areas, full font control (including Google Fonts), and more shortcodes. See more details about Weaver II Pro.
