@clarklab Clark, We use all of the WordPress menu system with Headway. If there are any limitations you feel need to be addressed, I would post your request with WordPress.
1 year, 7 months ago on Using Parent Pages and WordPress Menus Effectively
@clarklab This is all handled with the WordPress menu system. You put the child with the parent you want. If you change things in the WordPress menu system, they will be changed on your site. Provided, you assigned that particular menu to the navigation block on your site.
@clarklab Clark, not sure I follow your question. However, you keep things all 'syne' as you say in the WordPress menu. If you add a page and want it to show in a particular menu you can.
You can also assign each page as you build them to a particular parent here - http://d.pr/i/WGx8

@jhonny1 Thank you and we are glad what we do makes it easier to do what you do.
We were excited to push out all of the great new features with 3.4. Especially the Skins and the new Skin API. If you thought Headway saved you time before, this new version will do more.
@BlogTechGuy Thanks man. Now get busy building some kickbutt Skins for Headway. ;-)

@virtualvip Hey Vip, thanks for dropping by and adding to the conversation. And I love your point that you must commit to a schedule. While I would love it if people would post all the time, we all know that isn't going to happen.
What too many of those using a blog forget is each post they put up is in and of itself another web page with all of their information on it. The more they do as you say, the better chance you have of Google finding you. Even more important, the more you do, the better the organic search engines will find you.

@mghutchinson Thanks for stopping by. Perhaps I should have explained it a bit better. Sorry about that.
When I look at SEO, I do not look at just what the search engines do. I have always been of the school the organic search machines are what you want to target your content to and for. Organic being the human search engines. My position has been and continues to be if you keep the human search engines happy, the non-organic engines will also be happy.
The whole reason to do a blog if you are promoting a business or service firm is to be a source of information for your audience. That is why I have always been a fan of linking out. Linking out shows my readers I want to be their source of information.
Linking out also gets you attention from the sources you link to. Trust me, when people link to you or you link to them, they know it. If you are linking out, those sites will discover you. If you are providing good up-to-date information, those sites you are linking out to, might just link out to you too. Giving you those incoming links you are looking for to add authority to your blog and content.

@Jeff_D That is correct. For updates and support, you would need to renew yearly. Thanks
@Jeff_D If you purchased your developer license prior to November 25th 2011, than you have lifetime updates and support. The only difference then is lifetime access to blocks and Child Themes.

2 years, 1 month ago on The Headway marketplace, Headway Extend is officially open for business
Hey Kevin, thanks for the post about our new Headway Extend. One thing to keep in mind with child themes we build for Headway, they are what we call grid ready. While you state the child theme might be a simple 2 column blog look. With the visual editor in Headway, you can quickly change that layout to whatever you want. Plus you are not tied to the layouts selected for you by the theme developer. Just add Headway blocks here and how you want and you have the layout you want.
We will be aggressively adding to the inventory on a regular basis and would love any input or request for both child themes and blocks.
2 years, 1 month ago on Headway Themes Marketplace Launched
@terrik You can use them on multiple sites, just like you can Headway. Thanks
@raizenman It depends on the child theme. However, most of them will not allow the use of the design mode as the styling is set by the child theme. The ones you see now are grid ready meaning you can add blocks and move those around using the grid system in the visual editor. Thanks
@OliverSpear We have some official Headway blocks coming this week if our testing works as planned. The BuddyPress block will be out shortly too.
@ChrisWD I believe I answered this for you in your email. Thanks
@OliverSpear This is reflective of the license you have. You can use those three credits to grab one of the official Headway add-ons. Such as one or three child themes. Plus you can use those when ever you want. They never expire.

@rrwriter And you are comparing apples to oranges. Squarespace is not limited by the GPL license WordPress hinders premium developers with.
For a better example of another premium WordPress theme and how we all handle this. Take a look at iThemes, Woothemes, Thesis and Studiopress. All of them are also premium WordPress themes and do not allow public access to their forums.
2 years, 1 month ago on Screencast Weekly: Using Duplicator to Backup or Move your Headway Powered Site
@rrwriter I doubt if you can view any premium theme's forums. Like all the other premium themes and frameworks, our support area is for members only. If it wasn't why would anyone not just go to a pirate site and download Headway. Then if they run into issues, run to the forums everyone can access.
Not a good business model.
As far as the blog, we will be updating the blog design in a few days and we are bringing back dates. As for our new Marketplace, that will be open in a few days too. There was a delay in getting our child themes up. This was due to the fact there was not a ready made solution out there to handle our Marketplace the way we needed and wanted it to happen. As such, we had to basically build an entire new product ourselves to handle our shopping cart, ecommerce, customer registration and marketplace.
@LiveFyreCollectsYourData You stated: "I couldn't find any child themes for headway either. For being the 2 hardest working coders, it seems like they would eventually materialize. That might have solved my only roadblock of not having videos display on the homepage."
Our marketplace will be open later next week. The reason for the delay is not the child themes. The delay was caused by the fact we could not find a ready made solution out there to handle our ecommerce backend. As such, Clay built what amounts to a completely new ecommerce product to handle our marketplace.
I am hoping once we get our Marketplace open later next week, we can give a tour of what the backend looks like so people can see just how powerful it is. I am actually amazed at what we have. BTW, we actually have a name for the new Marketplace backend too. Maybe we will announce that next week too.

We are not interested in building numbers so we can sell Headway in a year or two and walk away. We are interested in growing a sustainable business which will be around for years to come.

Your clients are not required to have their own license if they don't want support directly from us.

@DavidBurch Awesome and welcome. Can't wait to see what you come up with as you use Headway.
@BeckyBlanton@Joseph Dang The product and making money is not the only concern a plugin company should have on their mind. The most important aspect is customers and the support we provide them.
Rest assured, when you purchase Pippity, you not only get a great product. You get great support to back that product up.
Without great support to back up a great product you end up with a empty community. Or worse, a community of users totally upset with you. Not going to happen with Pippity.

@Peter Crowell Hey Peter. Danny pretty much answered your question. If you have others, don't hesitate to ask here.
@testami Quite frankly, Clay or I could get hit by a truck tomorrow and then what would we do?
In all seriousness, because Clay is young is a huge advantage. He is motivated to make a product that no one can touch. He is motivated to continue to improve on his initial ideas. Which is very clear by each and every update and new version we have introduced.
If you are more comfortable with Cory Miller and the iThemes crew, by all means join them. I know Cory personally and consider him a friend. They are great.
The reason college kids change direction is because they have no direction. They are waiting for someone to give it to them
Clay is unlike anyone you will ever see or meet. The "young kid" as you say, is more motivated and focused on his future than most adults twice his age.
But, I can tell you this. Headway is in it for the long haul. We are building a sustainable business which will be here for a very long time.
And I am sorry if this reply comes across as a bit harsh. But questions asking if we will be around for the long haul tend to get my blood pressure up. How do any of us know if we will be in the same business down the road.
@Neicolec Please let me know here in the comments if you have any questions about Headway Themes. We are always glad to discuss and answer questions about Headway.
@JudyDunn@FrankDickinson@Peter Crowell@Danny Brown@bobWP And it looks great too.
@SarahArrow That is exactly what the Quick Start Wizard will do for you. See - http://headwaythemes.com/documentation/visual-editor/quick-start-wizard/
@FrankDickinson@bobWP@judy dunn Hell, I will admit @claygriffiths is the brains behind the coding in Headway. In addition, we have an amazing and awesome Headway Team backing him up too.
@Peter Crowell@Danny Brown You can set the home page or any page up just like you want with Headway and WordPress. And with Headway 3.0, you can easily have a different header or not have a header on any page you want. The new layout/grid system and Blocks will make it very easy to set up your layout as you want.
Example, the Header will be a Block. You can put Blocks anywhere on the page you want and put any Block on any page you want.
There will be no need for plugins to build any style of page you want. Including landing pages and/or sales pages.
As a teaser, we will be including a good selection of short codes with images you might need too. For example, landing pages look great with certain buttons and other features to get people to click. Headway 3.0 will provide this built in so you won't need any plugins.
The key to Headway over other themes is the fact you don't need to know any coding if you don't want. But, if you do know some, you can tweak your site even more. Just like Headway 2.0.x, Headway 3.0 will have the built in Live CSS Editor. Put in your CSS and watch it change the look of your site right in front of you.
@Peter Crowell The one big thing Headway child themes will have that other themes don't is Headway. Seriously, can you just picture a child theme you can open in the new Headway 3.0 visual editor. Use the new layout system/grid to add blocks and move those blocks where you want them without needing to crack code.
While you can do that, the design and style of the child theme will be maintained.
Just like now however, you don't have to use a child theme with Headway 3.0 if you don't want. But, imagine the power of being able to do things with that child theme and not having to know a lick of code.
@FrankDickinson@Peter Crowell Peter, I paid Frank to say I was his hero.
All kidding aside, Frank's site is another great example of what you can do as a non-coder too.
@Peter Crowell Peter, if you have questions about Headway Themes, please ask here so we can keep the conversation going. Danny does a great job with Headway as do some of the others in this conversation. And Livefyre is great for keeping the conversation going too.
@JeremyBlanton@SusieBlackmon I am pretty sure you will see a Tumblr style child theme coming with Headway 3.0 Need to look at the other features and why those couldn't be implemented into such a child theme too. Thanks for more items to add to my to do list. ;-)
@Peter Crowell All I can tell you is this. The price is going up. There will be different pricing in addition to the personal and developers'. In addition, those who wait for 3.0 to come out before buying will pay a 6 month or 12 month renewal fee too.
We are not releasing the new prices quite yet. The new prices will most likely be introduced when the beta comes out in a few weeks.
Those who own Headway at the time 3.0 is released are grandfathered in under our current lifetime updates and support for free.
In addition, along with a completely new Headway 3.0, we are introducing some kickass child themes too. Both from us and from 3rd party developers.
@SusieBlackmon@JeremyBlanton Hey Susie, if I might ask. What draws you to Tumblr?
@Lye Kuek Hin What I found very helpful when building a site is to look at sites you like and don't like. Get design and color ideas from them. Remember the quick start wizard can get you going quick and easy. Start by putting in your header and going from there.
@SarahArrow If you were confused by our Leaf system, I firmly believe you will love the new system in Headway 3.0. Headway 3.0 should be out in beta very soon.

2 years, 10 months ago on Celebrating 6 months with a theme a week through the end of October
@j_gardner I have a problem with anyone forking a product that is an ongoing concern. Simple as that. I don't give a crap it is within the GPL or open source. And that is the problem with the GPL.
The GPL is an outdated license that needs to be reconsidered.
2 years, 10 months ago on WooThemes Forks Jigoshop and they brag about it
@j_gardner You really don't get it do you. Your comparison is so out in left field I am having a hard time even understanding how you came up with it.
Your comparison of a book is one copy. What Woo is doing is for profit and they are forking a product that is new and thriving. And don't give me the argument this is how WordPress started. That one doesn't fly. B2 was dead and WordPress forked it to bring it back.
Woo couldn't build their own. They couldn't buy Jigoshop and it appears their offer of collaboration was so one sided, it would not have been good for Jigo.
So, instead of building their own, Woo forks a new and thriving product. Call it legal and call it within the GPL if that makes all of you koolaide drinkers happy.
Let me put this as plain and clear as I can. What Woo did was bad business, bad form, lame and wrong. Legal yes. But wrong. And I can only hope it jumps up and bites them in their forking ass.
@j_gardner "Copying does not harm the original owner, nor does it reduce its utility to the original owner."
Pretty big assumption on your part.
@mikelittle I am sorry you don't see that what Woo did is wrong and a danger to the WordPress community. I am also sorry you don't see the difference between what you and Matt did and what Woo did.
And I am sorry you don't see where good,innovating developers might think twice before developing products for WordPress after seeing what a company like Woo did to a new and thriving product like Jigoshop.
@mikelittle Big difference between what you and Matt did and what Woo did. B2 was a dead product going no where. Jigoshop is a new and thriving product. And because Woo wasn't able to acquire Jigo, they forked it.
While it might be "legal" as everyone wants to say under the GPL. Which is a major flaw with the GPL. It stinks and quite frankly is bad business. Actions like this do not help or are they good for the WordPress community. Actions like this will cause people to reconsider building anything for WordPress in the future if a company like Woo can do this and get the blessing of you and other's from the WordPress community.
If you all don't see this, I worry for the future of WordPress.
@edbloom I just love how some are so quick to point out there is nothing stopping anyone from doing what might be legal. But is it really morally right? Is it good business practice?
Look at what has been said about forking,
" Forking is considered a Bad Thing—not merely because it implies a lot of wasted effort in the future, but because forks tend to be accompanied by a great deal of strife and acrimony between the successor groups over issues of legitimacy, succession, and design direction.There is serious social pressure against forking."
Why are so many so quick to look at this from the standpoint of, "there are always choices." And why justify it from the standpoint that there is nothing stopping anyone from forking WordPress?
Why not just do what is right and not take someone else's hard work and make it your own. Oh, wait, its because it is open source and I can legally steal it if I want. This will certainly make it so much easier to build child themes for Headway since it is OK to go out and just fork them.

For whatever reason, a comment from @adii has not come through here. As such and because I want everyone to have their say, I am pasting it here.
@adii 's comment:
"I’ve responded to the comment you quoted above here: http://www.woothemes.com/2011/08/the-good-stuff-new-team-members-woolabs-woocommerce-plugins/#comment-71106
Beyond that I find it a tad unfair that anybody would now cry foul play, when the WooFramework and our theme options is probably historically one of the most “stolen” (your words, not mine) sections of code in the WP community. Yet, we’ve never complained about that and have just continued about our business of delivering value to our customers."
@j_gardner Awesome position. So, I am assuming it would be right for us to go ahead and fork all of the great child themes out there so they run on Headway.
@edbloom Perhaps, but if you want to be under the good graces of WordPress, Automattic and Matt, you don't dare license your product under anything but full GPL.
Sorry, like all of us, they had no choice.
@NathLussier Thank you. I would have to admit, the name Headway Themes has worked out well for us. Its amazing how something so simple can have such an impact on ones branding too.

Smart move Frank moving to Livefyre. I have been a fan of theirs from day one. I can tell you they are great at support and working with a theme too. Early on we had a bit of a conflict between Headway and Livefyre. What was awesome was how they responded to us and we worked together to get it resolved.
That other commenting service was not so open to working with us. In fact, their answer to our users who were trying to use this other service was to get a new theme. Not Livefyre. And that is why I recommend them and use them on my own blog too.

@BlogTechGuy@jennalanger@FrankDickinson A prime example of the power of LiveFyre is the comments on this one post.
@jennalanger@FrankDickinson@BlogTechGuy Child themes are going to give you a great starting point for one thing as a non-designer.
Headway 3.0 will take child themes to the next level by giving you the power of the visual editor and the new grid system. This will give the non-designer the ability to add features, Blocks as we call them and change the general layout. What you most likely will not be able to do, depending on the Child Theme design, is change the site design and style. This will need to be maintained so as to not ruin the look the designer was wanting to provide with the Child Theme.
@FrankDickinson@BlogTechGuy@jennalanger I use LiveFyre over on Blog For Profit and love it. Top notch product from a top notch company.
@JimConnolly And I blame you for putting the idea in my head too. I am looking forward to putting it all down too. It is fun to look back over the last 3 years.
@BlogTechGuy Joel aka @blogtechguy , as always we appreciate all of the support you give us here at Headway Themes.
Headway 3.0 will come with not only a very user friendly API for building child themes. We will have a marketplace full of some great child themes.
Our own child themes and CT's from three great theme companies. @OrganicThemes, @Press75 aka @jschuller and @allurethemes are already on board and ready to port over some of their existing themes to Headway as child themes. They are also gearing up to build some exclusive child themes for the Headway marketplace.
In addition to child themes, picture child themes that will work in the new Headway 3.0 visual editor and grid system. Headway 3.0 will take child themes to an entire new level for both the causal user to the hard core developer. Developers are going to love this as it will enable them to give their clients what they want and at the same time be able to crank out their work faster. A win-win for everyone.
@marianne.worley Thanks for your kind words. When Clay started to develop Headway, I told him it had to be more than dummy proof. It had to be dad proof. If I can use it anyone should be able to.
I think you will find Headway 3.0 to be even more user friendly and enable the non-coder and beginner to do even more. Plus, the API is being completely redone by Clay and his Team. Developers are going to love how easy it will be to build child themes and the new Block system. Blocks are replacing Leafs BTW.
@JohnHaydon John, kill might be the least of your worries.
In all seriousness, I have always said no that one theme is the only theme for everyone. There are going to be those times when Headway is a perfect fit. And other times it is not and another theme is.
This is what is so great about the WordPress community and all of the great premium products out there available for WordPress. The WordPress community is the winner with all of the choices they have to get the site and web presence they want.

@BlogTechGuy @remarkablogger When you compare the money some businesses and firms waste doing other so called marketing, having a Web presence is a fraction of it.
The problem for some professional firms for example is the "keeping up with the Jones" attitude they still have. But, what is great about having a blog, blogsite or Web site is the fact, even small businesses or firms can keep up with and compete with the "big boys." They just need to do it.

@BarneyA Hey Barney, great comment... Sorry could not resist.
One thing I have found over the last 6 years is this. Those who are not convinced a blog is the way to go may never be convinced. They are truly stuck in the fear factor too. The fear if they don't advertise in the yellow pages, the business or firm down the street will. And if they don't, they will miss out.
Maybe the only way we can get them to be convinced is to show them the same fear factor. Fear if they don't blog, the firm or business down the street will be and they will miss out.
And please do post about this too. There is always room for more conversations on this. The more we talk about this and the more of us who do the better.
Headway is going great too.
@TrafficColeman Exactly. Answering questions from your readers and your niche is one of the best ways to build your blog's community.

3 years, 7 months ago on 12 Of My Favorite WordPress Plugins
@ChristopherGHill That is correct, plus a lot more. Headway 2.0.x has the new SERP preview feature that is really handy.
@FrankDickinson It might be a good study. However, if I might step in it again. People don't comment on businesses blogs for a few reasons. Take the law site or even a medical site for example. People may not post comments there as they don't want their neighbor know they are thinking about divorce or have a STD.
People tend to look at business blogs as a source of answers to questions and solutions to problems. They are searching the web for those answers and solutions and finding them on the sites where the blogger is smart enough to provide them. And if that business blogger is doing it right, they are providing a call to action, a phone number or an easy way for their reader to reach them. And usually these readers are not using comments to do so.
I am certainly not saying getting comments on a business blog is unheard of. I simply do not believe, nor have I seen where it is so.
Let's also not forget the idea that some of these business blogs may not want to allow some comments to be published. Remember the divorce or STD example above. What would happen to that lawyer or doctor who allowed that comment to be public? Which of course opens up another whole other can of worms and that is moderating comments on a business blog.
3 years, 7 months ago on Why the Real Value of a Blog Does Not Lie in the Comments Alone
@FrankDickinson I agree, the comments are fun part of the blog. And the interaction there is great too. But, for most business blogs, comments are lacking. Not because they don't deserve comments. And it is not because the content is not great.
From my own experience, business blogs simply don't get the comments like this post has received or the post on Danny's blog.
For whatever reason, people hesitate to post on a business blog.
@Probius Sorry about that. Since it is on my About page here and mentioned on the Headway site, I assumed people would know. And since I stated early in the post,
"Clay and I decided we wanted to not just have a big day here at Headway. We wanted to give as many people as possible an opportunity to grab their own license for Headway Themes. We wanted as many people as possible to have the chance to take Headway and build a great web presence for themselves and their business."

@markwschaefer Mark - Thanks for stopping by. Your comment is point on to the points I was trying to make in my post. As you say, comments on the blog are often not the best measure of a business blog. So true. What some forget is the conversation is beyond the comments. And can take place everywhere else.
3 years, 8 months ago on Why the Real Value of a Blog Does Not Lie in the Comments Alone
@ladyjuliafish Thanks for stopping by and joining the conversation.
Don't worry about not getting comments. As long as the conversation is taking place in other places, your blogging is a benefit to you. Great to hear you are seeing activity in your email because of your blog. Keep posting good, up-to-date relevant content and you will continue to see the conversation taking place.
@Danny Brown @jkretch @livefyre Maybe, but I clearly made it clear there is a big difference between this type of blog and a business blogger.
I would expect a blog about blogging to normally get more comments than a business blog.
But you are right, it is kind of funny that a post about comments not being the end of it all is getting a crap load of comments.
@jkretch @dannybrown Thanks man for jumping in and your point is what I have been saying too. It is not "only" the blog where the conversation takes place. We do start the conversation with our post, but it matures, evolves and moves as a life of its own.
And I love, love LiveFyre!!!
@remarkablogger @Robcairns @Danny Brown And Michael that is my issue with all of this and why I posted what I did. The words in the post were there and I responded. I had to respond when I have businesses I consult with ask me about such issues. When a business blogger says, "hey I am not getting comments so my post are doing not good." Or, "I am not getting comments and there is no conversation."
My point is that the blog is not the "…only one place that happens – the comments section." For a blogger who is not getting comments but getting a conversation about his blog elsewhere, he/she needs to know such conversations are just as "golden" as those in the comment section of the blog.
Which is why when we are blogging, posting and do have some level of influence in the arena, our choice of words need to be chosen carefully.
I am enjoying the conversation taking place here very much. Thanks to all of you.
@Danny Brown @remarkablogger Then let me remind you of this one sentence in your post Danny.
"…if you’re opening up a conversation to connect to your audience, then there’s only one place that happens – the comments section. "
That simply does not jive with the position you are now taking in the comments to my post.
@remarkablogger And I agree with you too. However, my issue is to say the comments on the blog is the only place it matters. The comments on a blog post take place on more locations than just the blog.
@JonHearty @ginidietrich @dannybrown @Robcairns Jon - " the conversation is definitely happening in more places than just the blog, and it is really the entire conversation, regardless of where it is happening, that adds value."
That is exactly my point. The end all to the conversation is not the comments on the post. The conversation takes place in the post, the comments and it is mobile to other networks. It even takes place in person, on the phone and in emails.
My point is that saying comments are the only value of a blog post is a narrow one for anyone to take.
@Danny Brown @ginidietrich @JimConnolly
"Or say someone replies to one of your posts here with a dfferent take, and that leads to you implementing an idea that turns Headway into *the* leading WordPress framework."
Danny, I wasn't aware Headway wasn't *the* leading WordPress framework. At least our users think so.
@Rick_LaPoint Thanks Rick for jumping in on this. And thanks for making my point for me too. Not being in public is one of the biggest reasons they do not post comments.
@ginidietrich Crap sorry about that. That is what I get for trying to do 5 things at once on 3 different computer screens.
@ginidietrich @Robcairns Gina, I give you the title of the post itself.
"Why the Real Value of a Blog Lies in the Comments"
When you tie this to the quotes right from the post, it is hard to not read the post as I did. And I do not believe I took all of that combined out of context. Nor do I feel I "overgeneralized" it.
@ginidietrich Let me give you the quote again right from the post.
"if you’re opening up a conversation to connect to your audience, then there’s only one place that happens – the comments section."
I read this literally to say exactly what I am suggesting it says.
As for a professional service firm. Perhaps are definition of a professional service is different. I am suggesting and most would agree, a professional service firm would be a law firm for example. A CPA, Dentist or even a medical doctor. With all due respect, while those bloggers have great content, they don't get as many comments as other business bloggers.
From my own experience and that of others, professional service firms carry on the conversation from the blogs in other places other than the blog.
Thanks for jumping in and adding to the conversation on this topic.
@Robcairns Thanks Rob for chiming in on this. I think you know I agree with you on this one for sure. I don't want to discount comments and neither do you. I also don't want people to forget that the conversation does and must extend off of the blog and to the real world. Whether that be as you say, Skype, email, twitter and even in person in our office or store.
@JimConnolly Thanks Jim for jumping in. I do agree that comments are important. What I do take issue with is that the comments are the only place the conversation happens. Or that it is only the comments that matter.
Bingo, BOOM and exactly!!!
