Venice Theme

The beginning of February brings you a brand new theme release. Venice Theme opens big with a fullscreen slideshow to present images and videos. The special (and optional) two column blog layout works particularly well with image oriented websites, like traveling magazines or architecture portfolios.

Venice Theme comes with a fullscreen position that is ideal to present images, videos or a Widgetkit Slideshow including both. The slideshow will cover the entire viewport and fit all device widths.

The main navigation can be fixed to the top of the window. Additionally, you can enable an alternative navbar, placing the logo between the items of a centered menu. To match the Fullscreen Position, the navigation will adapt another style turning transparent and moving the logo above the navbar.

This theme features two different blog styles. The default stacked layout with the featured image above the title and a special alternating two column grid layout. It places image and article side by side and adapts seamlessly to different device sizes.

Venice utilizes Widgetkit 2 and also provides a Bonus Switcher Widget that uses thumbnails to navigate through different content panes. More features include a Socialbar widget position and different section backgrounds.

  • Fullscreen position
  • Special alternating two column blog layout
  • Adaptive and optionally fixed navigation
  • Hide page title and pagination in WordPress
  • Socialbar widget position
  • Default, alternative and image section backgrounds
  • 6 pre-built style variations
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration
  • WooCommerce support
  • Widgetkit 2 Switcher bonus widget

    this is a really nice tempate - and I LOVE the bonus switcher, things like that are hidden gem's inside the template in that they show us examples of what uikit is capable of :) Nice work guys

    I'm i little disappointed. Its a beautiful demo site, but its pretty much just like Stage or Katana. It relies heavily on great photography and large images and is not very practical for the majority of small business type websites.

      There are plenty of templates to choose from if you want to build small business type websites. I agree that this template will rely on great imagery and won't be useful for the majority of the sites we build for customers - but it is neat to see what's possible and who knows - you might find a use for it .

    Does it have a dotnav position? I think any template with a full-viewport image on the home page needs an intuitive option to jump further down. I've been disappointed at the last few not including a native dotnav position.

    It actually looks stunning, however it does not look that great on mobile devices!! It is not full responsive as it suppose to be. I was really exited about this template but it does play the video on phones :-(

        The iPhone only can play video in fullscreen, so a video as a background won't work.

        As robbert said, you can't have a video background on mobile devices. You also don't want that because of bandwidth. Instead is shows a fallback image on mobile devices. That is perfectly responsive and exactly how we want it.

    I guess you just have not noticed it, but there is no Venice Theme category in the support forum...

        Sorry, but if I click on support in the menu, on the support front page, the first box is Theme Aurora and the second is Theme Stage... that was what I meant by "there is no category". Obviously there are lots of questions...

          If you use the filter button, you can choose Venice. It will get to the front page after a while. I guess the most popular categories is shown on the front page, and that will take some time.

    Its a really nice theme, great work.
    but as for me, i cannot benefit from widgetkit 2 before a solid gallery is offert. And since widgetkit 1 and 2 are not working together, the last 2 themes are rather useless at the moment.

    Ya know, I'm sometimes the first to complain about YooTheme's tendency to wash, rinse, repeat with their themes. BUT - I get this one. It's like Kitana but with the centered menu of the other previous themes.

    Here's where you really need to see the "UIkit" page or the "Layouts" page with the demo - because the difference isn't in the layout or the general concept - it's in the harsh contrasts of this site's default styles.

    Look at the way they used style to separate content and clearly define content regions.

    Well done, nice compliment to the other versions of this theme genre

    This is indeed an amazing template. i just have a couple of feature requests regarding menus that i've been WISHING for almost 2 years with Yoo to have come to fruition.

    1. Widget in Menu: This widget item should appear in the menu settings of the Theme in order to change column size, add icons, etc. It should also be able to be changed order and not ALWAYS appear as the very last menu item.

    2. Menu classes. It would be amazing if we could use WordPress' option to enter a class for each menu item so that we can CSS individual menu items.

    Thanks and excellent work!

      and can I add to this also - for a long time I have wanted to have the option of a full width menu in the dropdown. Currently in warp 7 you can select column widths in pixels and numbers of columns. But it would be great to be able to have the option to do percentages so you could have a full width mega menu. Uikit has this capability but the Warp 7 menu doesn't :)
