Meet Aurora

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Update: Aurora has been renamed to Zuul Pro. Aurora was already taken. Get it now on Themes.Pizza.

I just launched a brand new WordPress theme I’ve been tinkering away on during nights and weekends, at least once the 5-month old is asleep.

I used this as a project to get into some more advanced customizer techniques and you can see that in action with the customizable homepage sections. I also wanted this theme to not be as reliant on Advanced Custom Fields as some of my past themes have been.

This theme was also a deep dive into building a theme for WooCommerce. Getting familiar with the template overrides, available hooks, and really taking a look at how the newer version of underscores integrated WooCommerce functionality.

This was also a project I used to get back into doing some design work using Sketch. I had been a Photoshop guy forever, but I gotta say, I think I’m a Sketch guy now.

It’s currently available on Creative Market and submitted to Theme Forest. Maybe even some day I’ll use it to sell my themes from my site.

Now to write this Best Man speech I’ve been putting off. It’s only due in 2 days.

Without further ado…
