A New Free WordPress Theme with WooCommerce Support and Full Site Editing – WP Tavern
YITH, a WooCommerce plugin development company that was acquired by Newfold Digital in March 2022, released its first block theme on WordPress.org. YITH Wonder is now listed among 122 other block themes supporting full site editing and recently got its own menu link in the directory to improve its visibility.
YITH Wonder includes 24 different designs, many of which are intended for stores. Since the company specializes in WooCommerce products, it’s no surprise that YITH Wonder offers matching styles for WooCommerce products, store pages, cart, and checkout.
The theme also includes three full-page templates for different homepage layouts and designs. These are very useful for quickly creating a page without having to find and place each design in the right place. Full page templates can easily be previewed on the theme listing on WordPress.org: (Home Page 1, Home Page 2 and Home Page 3).
YITH Wonder comes with six different style variations that make it easy to change accent color schemes and site typography.
Check out the live demo on the theme website. A handy feature of the demo is that you can click “Launch Sandbox” to instantly create a test site with the theme and WooCommerce preloaded. Sandbox sites expire after one hour. This gives a user the ability to explore the full site editing features and see if the theme will work for their particular use case. For example, users can see how the WooCommerce product catalog template will look like with their own customizations applied. The theme bundles two dozen different templates and template parts that can be customized in the site editor.
YITH Wonder is listed as a multipurpose WordPress theme in the directory, but it really shines as one of the few free block-based themes built with WooCommerce in mind. Creating a new page and applying one of the full-page templates to it is a nice experience that will save users time to get started and also allow them to create targeted pages featuring different categories of products or items for sale.
YITH Wonder is available for free download at WordPress.org. I couldn’t find any documentation for the theme, but it might be available once the company officially announces the theme on the YITH website.
