"Thank you, Thrive Themes! That's another plugin I can delete now that you do it better!"

These are the kinds of comments we love.

Although we still support the WordPress ecosystem of plugins, on occasion we'll release a single update that feels like we've just given you a brand new plugin for your website.

The Outside-In Principle + Global Colors: The Ultimate Color Customization Combo

WordPress themes have come a long way, haven’t they? Back in the day, you couldn’t choose your theme color or your font — you were stuck with what the theme developer gave you.
