Vida Theme

It's January and that means that it is time for a clean start. So check out Vida, our first club theme of the new year. Its clear structure as well as its fresh and colorful design make it perfect for your e-commerce, magazine or blog website. Although it is so versatile that will suit any kind of web project.

Vida comes with a cool tiled layout, which is rich in contrast and can be split into light and dark sections. This allows you to create exciting designs with an overall flat and clean approach. You will find nice, subtle spots of color in various aspects of the theme, like the boxed panels, badges and particularly the spectral color scheme of the main menu that is different for each style. Take a look at the beautiful, tidy blog layout with the date and tags placed outside of the content to draw special attention. This theme also provides a bonus style for the Widgetkit Slideshow that perfectly fits its overall style.

Vida is based on Warp 7 and provides full support for LESS. The front-end is completely built with UIkit and can be modified through the Customizer. You can change colors, spacings and fonts without having to write a single line of code. To get you started, Vida already provides 8 different style variations with backgrounds to choose from for your project.

  • Full LESS support
  • Full UIkit integration
  • 8 pre-built style variations available
  • Customizer with color picker and Google fonts support
  • Beautiful off-canvas navigation for mobile devices
  • All Warp framework features are available

        Hikashop seems to be a good VM alternative... but they do not support Sofortüberweisung...guess I rather wait until VM becomes compatible with Joomla 3.X

      Thanks, we got an old version on our demo server. The theme package never had this bug. It is now fixed on our demo server too.

    Here is my problem with many of your designs. In the real world of selling websites to clients 99% of them have logos that will never fit correctly in your templates. I mean look at the logo area in this template. it is so small. most companies will not have a logo that will fit there. That's just a fact.

      I totally agree! I had to spoil one of your desings to fit a logo. A theme with the logo over the menu, like the Warp 6 Master Theme would be much more flexible.

        I really like the warp framework and how the framework looks on paper, the skeleton. But in the USA (I do not know about Europe) web sites are usually very similar. I find that sometimes your elements have too much separation. For instance the Top A position is where I usually place a slide show for the homepage. I always have to modify the CSS to make it flush with the menu position.

        I think the closest to perfect design for my purposes is the CAPTURE Theme. Though when I change the background color of this template it affects the whole site so i have to do more work to get this to look the way I want it to.

        Also the background of the template sometimes it hard to modify because it is part of the main content area. For instance if I have a design that is 980px wide (call that the main area) what is behind it is the site background. Those elements should be separated so it is easy to color both elements separately. When the background is part of the main content area it creates a template that is only usable in certain situations. I know this from experience because I have had a developer membership with YOOTHEME since May of 2008 so I have a lot of experience with your templates.

        The more time it takes to modify a template means the less money we make. The more money I make enables me to renew my membership with YooTheme year after year. And your business is based on membership subscriptions and renewals.

        I guess what I am trying to say is we would appreciate more flexibility in the layouts and when you design consider what options the subscriber will need when they use the template to sell a new website to a client.

        Having said that I do consider YooTheme one of the best template providers for Joomla and WordPress.

    Nice theme indeed!

    What about a language position for multilanguage sites?
    Also it would be nice to have a sticky menu option.
    Thanks!

      This is what the toolbar position is for. There you can place the language switcher.

    I have to agree with the other comments about poor logo flexibility. I'm only into this a month and noticing many themes show little to no imagination or consideration for logo size. What client has a 50 x 19 pixel logo?

    The problem with that template is that is half from nowhere, it cant be used as a store, you can see the trends in online stores visiting other templates, and it does not also show us how a product can be displayed for a ecommerce solution. And unless you use that for a blog i find the theme useless. I think you should take more risks and try different thing, like a full ecommerce template, using hikashop, or virtuemart o whatever.
    I dont see anything new in that template and not too much to offer.

      I have to say I agree here. It's pointless developing an 'e-commerce style' template if it hasn't been made to work with at least 1 e-commerce solution. MijoShop is great, Hikashop is great. WooCommerce (on the wordpress side) is great.
      As a non e-commerce template it doesn't really offer a lot either, but that's just my opinion - I know you can't win them all.
      I was hoping for something a bit more mindblowing for the start of 2014, lets look forward to next months template instead

      Hi guys, please remember: It is just demo content. We just want to show you how this theme would look like if you use it for ecommerce. You can do this with any of our other themes, too.

      We also don't want any dependency for our themes on 3rd party extensions for a lot of reasons. Our themes are universal and work on different platforms. We don't want to limit the theme to an 3rd party extensions we pick. The theme would not work forever with the 3rd party extension because of updates and API changes.

      +1, but to the above point about designing templates for specific 3rd party extensions, I understand why they have not (or should not even). Better perhaps, I would love to see YOOTheme take a crack at their own version of a Social Platform; and take inspiration from Google Plus design, functionality, etc... rather than from Facebook. As for this Template, it think its great, and I love all the Warp7 themes so far. I have used most of them. Not every Template is right for every given project naturally , but i like the different approaches each month and I can almost always find something that will work between them all. Great job YOOTheme! Alos excited about PageKit.

    Although this template January 2014 is a nice template.
    But it is true that it is not really new compared to the other templates with warp7
    A perfectly optimized template for virtuemart even if used only with joomla 2.5 would be a nice novelty.
    There is not a YOOtheme template for e-commerce and when I have to develop an e-commerce use a template specific for virtue or a template gavick for virtue.
    The logo always at that point and always very small.
    The menus are always the same, both, the top and in the sidebar.
    Module positions are always the same for years.
    BUT I LOVE YOOTHEME
    I mean, I'd love to see some of the YOOtheme template that does not look like.... the YOOtheme!!!

    Good to hear about accommodating larger logos although I can usually find a solution.

    I'll be sticking with YooTheme though. Best templates out there IMHO and the Warp framework is tremendous.

    January theme is not for me but look forward to February and beyond.

    Good work YooTeam!

    Why do you make always fake articles in yours template's frontpage??
    Why don't you use system layout?
    Our clients most of times can only insert articles!! and when they ask "how can I insert my articles in frontpage?" we have to delete the fake article-class and insert real articles... but the result is different from the demo...

    and the logo... they want big centered top logos all the times! not a little small logo in an angle...

    Just found this site.

    Now there is a challenge for you Yooteam. Can this be achieved in Joomla. Because this is exactly the variation you need from the other templates you have. This can give your members a totally new approach.

    From first look I didn't really like this template.. After using it for a new client of mine I can positively say absolutely great job!

    What a breez to add module, layout, page styles. Creating a website with Warp7 was a real joy. Very powerful and simplistic, will never use another joomla template provider again.

    Although, it would be nice to see some more variation in the coming templates. Still, I can't wait to see what you guys have in store for 2014 :)
