After several days of work, I am pleased to present you this new update of OceanWP focused on the responsive. Now you’ll be able to control several elements for tablet and mobile devices like font size, padding, columns, and so on.
How It Works
When you see the responsive buttons next to the title of an option in the customizer, this means that you can change the values for this option for tablet and mobile devices.
Just click on the “Desktop” icon, two more icons will appear, clicking on one of them, your site will simulate this device and you will be able to add a custom value for it.
Show/Hide Some Elements
A new “Visibility” field has been added in the Top Bar, Page Header, Footer Widgets, and Footer Bottom sections to allow you to show or hide its elements on tablet and mobile.
Footer Widgets Columns
By default, on the tablet and mobile screens there is only one column for footer widgets, since this update you can easily choose to display your widgets between 1 and 4 columns as the GIF above.
New Header Style
A new header style has been added “Medium” with several options to allow you to customize this header style according your needs, like to show/hide the menu when scrolling, show/hide and to reorganize the columns and control the padding of the top section, control positioning, height, padding of the menu, and more.
All widgets were removed from the theme because some widgets had code that is not allowed in a theme on the WordPress directory, they were moved in Ocean Extra 1.2.0, so if not already done, update the plugin before the theme to lose no widgets data.
Two new font weight 500 and 900 have been added and now it is possible to control the font size of the social menu and add a left/right padding.
I will improve the Medium header style, you will be able to put what you want in place of the search form and social in the top header.
Then I would start working on a new extension to allow you to enable/disable each scripts of OceanWP, this way you can have a very light theme.
If you have an idea or suggestion to improve the theme, feel free to contact me.
Tell me in the comments what you think of this update.
