New System Check, Social Buttons and more

Warp 6.1 Released

The Warp theme framework 6.0 is out for a while now and we're really happy with it! But we also had some new ideas for additional features and improvements. Now we are proud to announce the next milestone our Warp 6.1 release. Let's have a closer look at it...

System Check

Warp 6.1 System CheckIn our support forums we noticed there are many common issues due to the webserver configuration or an unsupported PHP version. Thats why we built in a system check which automatically runs a few tests to quickly find issues on your installation. So if you experiencing any problems with your theme? Just open your theme settings and take a look at the system check. It will provide you with useful information about wrong file permissions or missing PHP extensions. In Joomla the system check even tries to recognize possible problems with multiple jQuery instances in your installed extensions.

Social Buttons

Warp 6.1 Social ButtonsA great new feature are the new social buttons for articles. Just enable them in your theme settings and your visitors are able to share your website content on Twitter and Google+. So be a part of todays social web!

Config XML

Warp 6.1 XMLWe also optimized the development of custom styles and module layouts. No more hassle with XML files if you want to extend your template with your custom style or module layout. Just create your style/module layout and they are detected automatically. Just go to the theme settings and you'll see your created styles and module layouts, ready for assignment.

And more...

Warp 6.1 now also supports more system specific features like the pass through of module class suffixes for Joomla 1.5 and 1.7 and the HTML overrides for com_newsfeed, com_weblinks and com_contact in 1.7. For WordPress we've added the support for post thumbnails and improved compatibility with popular WordPress plugins.

Currently only our new Catalyst theme is running on Warp 6.1 but we will update all Warp6 themes to 6.1 in the next weeks. We hope you'll enjoy the current release as much as we do!

Update: All Warp 6 themes are updated to Warp 6.1.

    great ! I like the multiple jquery check...

    Small recommendation: Maybe the Version of the Template can be added to the Current Version List, since some members are wondering which template runs on Warp-which versions.
    Thanks ! Ivo

    Pass through of module class suffixes.... YES!!! That has been a thorn in my side for a long time, I was just annoyed (again) by that not working only moments ago.

    Pass through of module class suffix .. great improvement and much needed. What gives with the facebook thing, My clients all use it and so far I need outside help to get it. ... Would be nice to disable other stuff and just count on Yootheme for all.

    I would love to see some of the older themes updated. Perhaps do a poll of subscribers - and update the most popular ones - like 1 per 2 months. I miss Enterprise and Pure the most.

      Especially Planet - that theme is what made me become a subscriber!

      I do agree about a vote though; not worth spending time upgrading a theme absolutely no one is using...

    I agree with Rita. Taking a poll among subscribers to update some older themes would be great! There are some to me that I still really like the look of but have been putting off using them because of the lack of WARP6 features.

    Please consider this YOOtheme.

    You mention the Social button activation in the theme but I'll be damned if I can find it anywhere in Big Easy, Cloud or Streamline. Where is the setting located?

    NANO NANO NANO

    Hi Sascha, please update NANO first. It covers more or less all basic menu and module variations. Styles concept is nice, but when it comes to quick & dirty changes, pass through of module class suffixes is the easiest way. By the way, even if I hate it, our clients would appreciate kind of News Widget, to animate category lists etc.

    Thanks for the documentation.
    PS. If I forgot: Please update NANO first ;-)
    Greetings

        Greetings, in the words of a famous poet:

        I don't want a lot for Christmas
        there is just one thing I need
        I don't care about the presents
        underneath the Christmas tree

        I just want you for my own
        more than you could ever know
        make my wish come true
        all I want for Christmas is you

    I totally agree about older templates... I am most interested in Symphony and Explorer. Will these be upgraded?

    There are so few of the newer ones that have any pizazz they are all dull black and greys.... my clients want COLOUR!
