For those unfamiliar with this awesome piece of software I’m gonna start with a short introduction to Cherry Framework. This Bootstrap based technology is basically a framework for intuitive and fast building of responsive, fully functional and beautiful WordPress websites.
Cherry 4.0 is the latest, much awaited version of Cherry Framework. This release comes with quite a number of amazing features you are going to love. It does not matter if you are a pro developer or a beginner user of WordPress, Cherry has something for everyone. A newbie will love how easy it is to create a unique website with the framework and a pro will find a lot of amazing stuff to make the development that much easier and effective.
The Main Features Cherry 4.0 Comes With
Your website will look amazing on any device with any screen size, whether it’s a tiny mobile phone screen or a huge desktop. There’s no need to design a separate mobile version, the website will adjust smoothly.
Cherry 4.0 is incredibly easy to install, all you need to do is upload the Cherry Wizard as you would upload any other WordPress plugin and in a few easy steps you have the framework and every component of the theme installed. I’d like to point out here – everything is downloaded from the Cherry Cloud, there’s no archives etc.
Static Area Builder
This one lets you decide where to put content blocks, logo, menu, search bar etc. relative to the header and footer. Plus you can make different headers and footers on different pages.
Much as in a computer game you can backup your progress, Cherry 4.0 allows you to backup the theme settings and restore them whenever needed.
