During the whole time, we do our utmost to learn and constantly update our products to keep pace with the innovation of theme’s interface. It’s been over 3 years from the first release of DW Focus, we never stop trying to add more features and improve our theme but there’s still have a little change of the interface. Well ! Everything must move with the time, right?

So several months ago our DesignWall team has decided to go all in on a single idea which is making something bigger and better than we had ever built before. We committed to building DW Focus 2. DW Focus 2 was the biggest change of the interface for The Net’s most wanted Responsive News & Magazine WordPress theme of all time, and following the release we focused 100% of our support and development resources to making sure that the theme was working great for everyone. Let’s have a breakdown of the changes in this new version – DW Focus 2!

The Story Behind DW Focus 2

First, let’s take “USA Today Magazine” as an example, we’ll make a little comparison of this magazine’s interface between today versus 2 years ago in order to show you all the new point

Two years ago, they often put a sidebar on the right of the news page. But the new trend is that they remove the sidebar section to have more space in order to display more piece of news. We’ve followed this trend and apply it into DW Focus 2. So in a part of this new version, it is designed to focus on the layout with a single column or users could customize the way they want.
