There’s been a lot of talk in the world of WordPress lately about page-builder themes and plugins. Heck, we’ve even done a couple of posts on these ourselves as of late (one on WPMU DEV’s new ‘Upfront‘ page builder and another on Themify’s new landing-page builder theme ‘Landing‘). And now we have the release of ‘Layers‘ — a brand new free page-builder theme by Obox Themes — which looks superb!
