  1. I found Headway through various searches for developing full websites using WordPress. it looks very interesting, but I’m afraid I still don’t know what the heck it does.

    I could not find any Screenshots, or videos of it in use and in action.

    It seems to be a way to customise the components and content areas for a WordPress blog Theme..but exactly how it does it and what it does is left up to my imagination.

    Is there anywhere that provides more information, screenshots and really explains properly what this tool does and how it works?
