WordPress 3.4 is expected in April 2012. Like all major updates WordPress, it promises to add a lot of new features to the WordPress platform. One of the best new features of the new theme customiser which is being introduced. Mark McWilliams showed a preview image of the theme customiser yesterday via Twitter.
It shows an options page that lets you customise the header, background, navigation, static front page, site title and tagline.
It isn’t clear what can been customised as yet though I’m pleased to see WordPress introduce an in built options area for themes – it’s sure to change how many developers design their themes
The Twenty Twelve design looks similar to the last default designs. I’m a big fan of simple designs and have used the Twenty Ten and Twenty Eleven designs in the past for some of my small content websites. If Twenty Twelve is a marked improvement over Twenty Eleven I will probably use it on some of my websites (perhaps even customise it for WP Mods).
What would you like to see in the upcoming theme customiser?
* Note: I originally thought that this theme customiser was exclusive to the Twenty Twelve theme. Thanks to Mark and Chip for clarifying that the theme customiser is part of WordPress 3.4 itself :)
