Jigoshop can now be used with all Headway Themes to provide eCommerce with their great drag-and-drop WordPress framework which allows you to create your own layout via their visual editor. And it’s possible via the new Headway Connect extension, which is now available for free.
It’s been developed in collaboration with Grant and Clay Griffiths, the father-and son team behind Headway. The first version of Headway launched in 2009, developed by Clay at just 15-years-old, and has proven incredibly popular as it allows anyone to drag and drop Blocks onto the editor to design and edit any page of your website. They’re now onto Headway 3, and in addition to the visual design options, you can also access a live CSS Editor, and they’ve partnered with a number of major theme developers to produce child themes which you can then ‘edit like crazy’.
Once you’ve settled on a layout, you can then change the design settings in the same Visual Editor., which lets you select fonts, colours, rounded corners, background images and more to let you style your site or page exactly how you want. As with all official Jigoshop themes, Headway has introduced a Responsive Grid to let your site automatically re-size whether your customers are visiting on their computer, smartphone or tablet. And again, like Jigoshop, it’s available to use for your own sites, or for client sites.
Installation is simple – you’ll need Jigoshop 1.1.1 or greater plus Headway 3.1.1 or greater, and then to install and activate the Headway Connect extension. And this then gives you a Jigoshop Block to use in any Headway theme.
Jigoshop and popular theme frameworks:
We want to continue to offer Jigoshop compatibility with the best WordPress theme frameworks, having previously announced official integration with PageLines, and producing our own integration with Genesis. Wherever possible we prefer to work directly with theme providers to ensure seamless integration, so if your favourite theme designer hasn’t been covered yet, why not ask them to get in touch with us?
