The last few months were super exciting as I was co-organizing WordCamp Moscow and hard at work building this new theme. That’s why things have been a bit quiet here at ThemePatio. But the wait is over, and I’m finally ready to show you Counter — a brand new WordPress theme for small businesses.
Why Small Businesses?
Before creating this theme, I researched many websites for cafes, restaurants, bakeries, bars, spa-salons, barber shops, and found out that they all have one thing in common — a front page with panels.
This concept is not new at all, but I haven’t seen a theme that could implement it in a clean, minimalistic way so I decided to build it.
The heart of the theme is its flexible front page that can display up to ten panels. You create panel content as a regular page and then assign it to one of the panels in Customizer.
Each panel has a set of options that allows you to change colors, set the background image, and more:
Another cool feature is the blog page that can be configured to display posts in a three or one-column layout.
It goes without saying that Counter has all the standard customization options and comes with a year of updates and support.
