Version 4.7 of WordPress, named “Vaughan” in honour of legendary jazz vocalist Sarah “Sassy” Vaughan, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. New features in 4.7 help you get your site set up the way you want it.

We have run a complete test on our entire WP Themes collection using the latest release of WordPress 4.7 and all our templates are fully compatible with the new upgrade, the performance of the site also has some improvement because of this new WordPress library. All developers are working hard every single day to keep our theme up-to-date and better for all our client’s.

You can check out our entire themes collection at https://visualmodo.com/wordpress-themes/ and take a look at our demonstrative theme websites running WP-4.7 CMS. See all about WP upgrade at wp.org.

The most noticeable of these features is the video header. You can now add MP4 videos, which will be used as header media, looped infinitely. This brings a widely-used feature to a core theme which is an important step in embracing more than just images as media.

Otherwise, the theme is pretty standard. I personally like it more than Twenty Sixteen, but I still favour Twenty Fifteen for its minimalist, yet effective approach.

The Twenty Seventeen default WP-theme in action.

Twenty Seventeen does a great job of showing off some under-the-hood features. If you head over to the Customizer in the WP-admin, you’ll see the editing guides – a welcome addition that allows you to click on what you want to modify, instead of guessing where the appropriate setting can be found.
