newThis update makes Forward compatible with the Gutenberg block editor. Demo: https://demo.organizedthemes.com/forward/block-styles/ This update adds a new full width layout while keeping the boxed layout. You can choose between both in 2 ways. You can opt to use the new full width layout or the boxed layout for all of the website at once or choose to make certain Pages (not Posts, for the moment) full width. Demo: https://demo.organizedthemes.com/forward/home-2-full-width/ 1. Appearance > Customize > Content: Changing the Website Width here affects the whole website. 2. Edit any Page (not Post, for the moment): Under Template, choose Full Width Page to use the new full width layout for that page only. The second option, making a single page full width, adds a new sidebar (widgets) position that lets you add widgets. When your page is full width, navigate to Appearance > Customize > Widgets > Below Content and add your widgets there. This goes right below your content (text, images) on that page, which is also above the footer. - Added full-width-template.php to create a new template without sidebar and to go full browser width. - Added the page.php file to added the new bottom sidebar group area. - style.css - added the full width layout of the web site along other optimizations. Also added block editor styles. - style-editor.css - added missing page width styling to match the front-end. Also added block editor styles. - includes/customizer-options.php - added the option to choose a full width or boxed layout for the website. Added the option to add space above the header in boxed layout. Added some menu navigation color options for the full width layout. - header.php - optimizing layout and configuration for the full width layout. - body-tag.php - added a class to the body tag in conjunction with the new option for full width or boxed layout. - functions.php - added block editor compatibility with theme colours. - includes/customizer-styles.php - added a condition to not load the page background image when the full width layout is set. - widgets.php - added new bottom sidebar group. - custom-js.php - added scripting for the masonry bottom sidebar group.
