An introduction to Seasonal Pro

Seasonal Pro was designed for the blogging purist who wants to simply blog. With a little old school style and a little modern design, Seasonal Pro gives you a lot more than a typical blogging theme. I used the default WordPress theme as a guideline and simply developed the theme that you see.

Features Built into Seasonal Pro

  • Mobile responsive
  • 7 Widget positions
  • 3 Bog styles
  • Customizable sidebar
  • Multiple post formats
  • Microdata formatting based on for Google
  • ¬†Built-in theme customizer with several options
  • Unlimited colours

Recommended Plugins (Optional)

The plugins I used in the live demo site for this theme are listed below. These are optional only and not required to make the theme function, although they will provide enhancements. The one big one is the Jetpack plugin because it contains several modules that works for the theme on the following elements. I should also mention that if you do not want to use Jetpack, there are alternative plugins to achieve similar results.

The demo site currently has these modules activated in Jetpack :

  • Widget Visibility – Allows you to publish widgets to select pages
  • Sharing – Adds social networking icons at the bottom of posts or pages for others to share with their friends
  • Contact Form – Used on the contact page
