A quick note from the author:

“Thank you everyone for your support! We had no idea how much you wanted this plugin! We’ve created Options for Twenty Seventeen to make our lives easier when helping clients modify their default WordPress theme. Lots of people use Twenty Seventeen probably because there can’t be a more supported theme than one that’s provided by the WordPress developers! So our mission was to create a plugin that allows easy customization without any need for HTML, CSS, JavaScript or PHP knowledge whilst at the same time not making ANY changes to the theme itself or requiring a child theme (although child themes are supported). What does this mean? It means that the WordPress wizards can make changes to the theme and you can run updates without losing your modifications.

We’d like to thank everyone who has reported issues or suggested changes using the Support link above or by emailing us direct … this plugin becomes even better because of you! We’d especially like to thank anyone who upgrades. Your money allows us to continue doing what we do 🙂

Keep the feedback coming!”

FAQ

I’ve upgraded but it won’t activate?

THANK YOU! Your upgrade helps us to continue to do what we do. If you have already paid and your upgrade won’t activate, please contact us so that we can investigate 🙂

Why can’t I change the fonts?

Changing fonts in a WordPress theme is not a customization that is limited to Twenty Seventeen. There are loads of plugins out there already that specifically do this already. We use TK Google Fonts for example.

Why doesn’t the colour picker work?

Try disabling Advanced Twenty Seventeen plugin 😉 We’ve not checked it out yet but it looks like this plugin breaks the default colour picker control in WordPress customiser.

Is the upgrade a one-off payment or a subscription?

The upgrade is a one-off payment for a single website.

Reviews

Great value, Great Support….

If you are planing to use Twenty Seventeen as your theme, or as a base for a child theme, this plugin has so many options to improve the default theme quickly and easily.. the free premium trial is super handy to see if there are options you will use. Great if you can't code as the options are all available via menus... Great if you can code.. no way I could have made all the changes I wanted for the cost of my time vs the cost of the premium licence. I had a couple of small issues specific to my deployment and the support I received was outstanding... Also no problem to transfer the premium licence from my developemnt domain to the client's domain when ready to deploy. Would not hesitate to recommend. This was my first premium wordpress plugin purchase, and I registered here specifically to leave a great review.

Great plugin!

Awesome plugin! Saves me the trouble of trying to find how to edit the code to change some of the aesthetics of 2017's theme. As a newbie blogger, this is fantastic! Highly recommended.

I like to pay every single euro for this plugin

I use the plugin on several websites. With the tool, I can easily edit settings, test, correct or discard. The support is friendly, timely, helpful and easy to understand even for a beginner. A very good partnership between programmer and user. The plugin is worth the money. I still wish the programmer many good ideas for the future.

Fantastic Plugin and perfect support

Since Twentyseventeen is a great theme this Plugin makes the theme even better. There are so much options, beadcrumb support, animated logo to name only a few. A option i want to use was missing, but no problem, the option was added with the next update. Support was very friendly and helpful and the response time extreme short. Well more then worth the money. If you want to use twentyseventeen as a business site i can strongly recommend the Options for twentyseventeen.
