Canvas is a theme that is near and dear to us here at Woo. Due to it’s flexible nature and myriad of styling options and possibilities, Canvas has also become somewhat of a framework or boilerplate for many of us and many members of the WooCommunity (it has, after all, become our flagship theme). Since the initial launch of Canvas on the 9th of February 2010, Canvas has received an overwhelming response and has gathered a loyal base of users who use the theme exclusively. This indicates to us that the Canvas community is strong and ever-growing.
With Canvas version 3 out in the wild, we saw it time to take Canvas to the next level. After a few months of coding, tweaking, adding new features and optimising existing ones, we launched Canvas version 4. This update brought with it a refined action and filter structure, making the main layout even more extendible and customisable than ever before, as well as the introduction of the Hook, Meta and Layout Manager features, for even more granular control over your website’s design and the elements it’s made up of.
Since releasing Canvas V4, we’ve received countless e-mails, tweets, blog comments and Facebook updates from loyal and steadfast Canvas users, eagerly awaiting our next steps with Canvas (and providing some great ideas and feedback, which we always appreciate).
Ladies and gentlemen… without further suspense and retrospective, we present to you… Canvas version 5!
