Headway Themes have released their much awaited Headway 3.0 version of the theme. I use the Headway theme on all my blogs because it can be customized so easily. I don’t want my blogs to look like someone else’s and Headway helps me to get a unique blog design with ease and in minutes. To know more about Headway, you may read my post on why I think Headway is the best wordpress theme. Headway WordPress Theme is actually a framework using which you can build WordPress themes of your choice. The best thing about using the Headway framework is that you can build themes as per your choice without even touching or writing a single line of code. We usually don’t find WordPress themes that match 100% of what we need and Headway allows us to achieve just that.
What’s New in Headway 3.0
Before upgrading to or buying the Headway 3 theme, we all would like to know if it’s really worth it and does it have any added features. Here is what I found.
- Headway 3.0 is totally written from scratch and is faster than the earlier versions. The visual editor is faster and also the blog loading time becomes faster with Headway 3.0. Blog load time is responsible for the blog revenue and also search engine rankings.
- Headway 3.0 features a grid system using which you can simply drag and drop blocks. Blocks can be used as sidebars, navigation bars, or anything you want on your blog. Want a wider sidebar? Simply drag the bar with your mouse and you are done. It’s really that simple.
- With Headway 3.0, you can now use child themes on your blog. The child themes are made by some of the top WordPress theme designers and are simply awesome. If you are a designer, simply create a theme and sell it on the Headway Marketplace to make some money.
- Dropping shadows, rounding of those edges and much more advanced features can achieved done using Headway 3.0. All this without even using a keyboard. No need to write a code anymore (sorry developers).
- Updating fonts, colors, backgrounds etc. and seeing them in real time has been the best feature of Headway themes and it is much faster and user friendly in Headway 3.0.
- Headway 3.0 also comes with an inbuilt SEO. This means you don’t need to use an additional plugin that takes care of your on-page SEO. Guys at Headway always keep themselves updated on changes in search engines like Google. SEO updates are accordingly made in the Headway theme and future updates are released. Simply Awesome!
- Not to mention, the Headway support staff is excellent and there are tons of resources online. I personally look for support and online resources before purchasing anything on the web and headway is good at it.

The only drawback with Headway 3.0 is that you cannot upgrade to 3.0 from the previous versions. This is quiet obvious because the Headway 3.0 base is written from scratch. This is not much of a problem though as you can always upload Headway 3.0 as a new theme and use it. You can use Headway 3.0 on any size blog or even on single page affiliate websites. It woks perfectly well with whatever your needs are. All without writing a single line of code (Sorry again, developers).
