It is with great pleasure that we can FINALLY announce the launch of our awesomely unique niche blog design for bands and musicians, entitled Backstage.
Backstage was first conceptualized by the talented British web designer extraordinaire – Elliot Jay Stocks way back in June. We thought Elliot was well suited for this kind of design as he himself is quite a musical genius.
Fox has spent the past few months, off and on, hard at work creating powerful widget goodness and theme options for Backstage. With custom category templates for the discography, latest news, video and image archives this theme really helps empower artists and bands with the tools they need to promote themselves. An upcoming shows widget helps manage your events, whilst a home page featured slider can easily be enabled/disabled via the theme options panel.
It’s probably best letting the images below, and the demo, do the talking don’t you think?
We hope this theme helps continue to grow our long tail of theme offerings and we look forward to seeing it in action on the interwebs soon. As with any theme please provide us with your constructive feedback so we can continue to improve this beast of a theme.
Have a read over the theme listing and view the alternate styles on the demo switcher before reaching into your pocket for your wallet. Trust us, this theme holds huge potential.
Great as always!
Awesome, now all I need is a band and $70! Love how much attention to detail goes into the demo!
Slaved away at this one. Had to contact a friend of mines band so that I can get some legit content on this demo. And it panned out really well. The demo looks awesome. 🙂
BUT, this theme is not only for bands or musicians in my opinion. The fact that it uses such powerful and easy-to-use widgets is gonna make this a killer news theme, if you happen to see it that way.
Can’t wait to see the mods, as always. 😀
This really is a sweet theme, and I totally agree with Foxinni – this thing has legs.
I’ve been fortunate to play around with it as a Beta Tester, and right away I started seeing all kinds of possibilities that go beyond band sites (as soon as I have a demo up, I’ll share it).
Awesome Man.You rock
Cool!We will rock you,too 🙂 i’ve translated into Turkish language.Now Turkish user can use backstage in their onw language.Just waiting for approving of translation by Woo Team!
Well, I’m not surprise about this one.
Elliot Jay Stocks + WooThemes = AWESOMEEE
Great design by Elliot Jay Stocks! Would be cool to have some more functionality, I have some ideas. Like what Chris Coyier did with http://www.bandwebsitetemplate.com and http://www.bandthemer.com
Which functionality do you think is missing?
Excellent! Premium Like.. Thesis by by 🙂 Good Luck Adii rockstar.. Thank you..
So is that nav showing categories only ? Can it integrate pages ?
As in all of our themes, we have included the functionality to switch the navigation between the display of pages or categories. We have also been working on a new custom navigation function, which will allow you to mix & order pages, categories & direct links in one navigation (this should be ready in mid-January).
🙂 🙂 🙂 Great news
And what about the homepage image slider thingy ? Is there a demo of that anywhere ?
Sure – it’s on the homepage… 🙂
A slider ? Really ? I can’t see a slider anywhere. Please point out the obvious to me 🙁
somebody must have disabled it in the options 😉
Back now -> http://woocommerce.com/demo/backstage
Well, that makes a difference !
This is a most interesting theme. I think I need a few days to let the mutation possibilities really sink in. 🙂
This is really a cool wp theme, love it. I may purchase one. 😉
Totally not happy with the new theme.. Maybe that’s because that’s just not my design type. I feel too much clutter !
Hope goes well and everyone else likes.
Merry Christmas Wooteam !
Not even the more minimalist styles!? 🙂
Is it possible to add more pages on the top? (actually 7 pages).
and custom all design with The WP – Developer?
