New Theme: Twenty Seventeen

Meet Twenty Seventeen, the brand new WordPress default theme.

We’re excited to announce that this year’s WordPress default theme, Twenty Seventeen, is now available on

Designed by Mel ChoyceTwenty Seventeen is a business-oriented theme that allows you to create a stunning front-page layout with multiple sections. The theme can be topped with a large custom header image or atmospheric video of your choosing.

Twenty Seventeen can be customized further by adding a logo, custom color or fonts, or widgets.

We paid special attention to making sure the theme’s typography works well with as many languages as possible. Font adjustments for the following alphabets improve readability:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese
  • Cyrillic
  • Devanagari
  • Greek
  • Gujarati
  • Hebrew
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Thai

Twenty Seventeen has also been designed to look good on a variety of screen sizes.

    As a user of this theme since March I’m very satisfied with the experience. Simple, powerful and very customizable. It gives my site a very clean and pure layout which is just what I was looking for. Maybe the only con I could find is that 2017 is a bit lacking in footer customizability out of the box but overall, great design and layout experience. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    The video header option is pretty cool. I wish that I could do that with my current theme.
