We are excited to announce the next generation of our WP-EZ Website Builder – WP-EZ 2.0 – is now available!
WP-EZ is WordPress made easy. 2.0 makes it even easier thanks to 3 exciting new features.
1) Pre-Installed, Theme-Specific Pages
With the original WP-EZ every theme came with the same 3 basic pages installed – Home, About, and Contact. With 2.0, every theme comes with pages specific to the type of organization the theme was designed for. For example, the Dragon Drop Church theme comes with 8 church-specific pages like Sermons and Give pages, while the Dragon Drop Ministry theme comes with 8 ministry-specific pages like Store and Schedule pages.
2) Page Templates
With the original WP-EZ, the 3 pre-installed pages had almost no content on them. 2.0 has Page Templates with sample content already beautifully laid out. All you have to do is replace the text with your own text and replace the images with your images, and you’ve got a beautiful, well organized website in very little time.
3) Drag-and-Drop Page Builder
With the original WP-EZ, pages were limited to one main content area, which restricted what you could do on each page. 2.0 has a cutting-edge drag-and-drop page builder which makes lots of new layout options possible. Want one part of a page to have a single column layout while another has two columns? Easy. Want to make one of those two columns bigger than the other? Just click and drag the divider. Want to add a parallax background image that slides as you’re scrolling down the page. No problem.

8 New WP-EZ 2.0 Themes
We have 8 new themes available for WP-EZ 2.0 that make use of the features highlighted above. They include 2 different designs – “Dragon Drop” and “Center.” Each design has been utilized to create four organization-specific themes, each with its own organization-specific page templates.
- Dragon Drop Church
- Dragon Drop School
- Dragon Drop Ministry
- Dragon Drop Business
- Center Church
- Center School
- Center Ministry
- Center Business
For each theme, we created a 4-5 minute overview video to give you a tour of how they look and function, videos available in the WP-EZ 2.0 Knowledgebase.
