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 customisation without any need for HTML, CSS, JavaScript or PHP knowledge whilst at the same time not making ANY changes to the theme iteself 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 eveyone 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 🙂 If you do upgrade, please be patient as it’s not automatic and currently we have to manually approve the upgrade.

Keep the feeback coming!”

Reviews

Excellent plugin!

This excellent plugin allows to customize and to tweak the Twenty Seventeen theme through clear and well documented customizer options. This makes it much easier to customize a page than fiddling around with clumsy custom css, at least for me.

The only “problem” of this plugin is that it has so many great options and features. That triggers constantly my appetite for still more!

Fortunately, the developper encourages the plugin users to send him feature requests, which I did a few minutes ago on the support forums. Now eagerly awaiting his reaction…
