HTML5-compliant, mobile responsive theme with a blog-style home page that’s supplemented by 4 home page widget areas.
The theme’s name is only a suggestion that it’s a good fit for educational institutions and schools. Its home page widgets and multiple color styles deliver a lot of flexibility make it suitable for a wide range of sites that want to keep their home pages fresh with updated post content.
Education Pro is the refresh of the Education theme. While there are numerous changes, a few big ones stand out:
- adding HTML5 support
- adding a mobile specific menu
- replacing the Google web font Volkorn with Roboto Condensed
- adding 2 new footer widget areas to bring the total to 5 footer widgets
- adding an After Entry widget area
- renaming some widget areas
- changing the available color styles
Introduced on 7/21/14, Education Pro is a 3 column theme with 6 layout options. The theme includes a landing page template. Beyond the WordPress standards of custom menus and threaded comments, the Education Pro theme also supports custom headers, a custom background, a mobile specific menu, and multiple color styles (blue, green, red, purple, and orange – the default).
Education Pro also supports Google web fonts (specifically Roboto Condensed). The selected font add about 42 Kb to the page weight of the site, which is a negligible addition for typography. Education Pro loads dashicons which brings the total addition to about 78 Kb on our demo.
