YOOtheme Pro

Here is our new all-in-one website builder

YOOtheme Pro released

After almost one year of development we are incredibly proud to release YOOtheme Pro for Joomla today. It is the biggest step for us since the founding of YOOtheme and it will bring a new era that merges our products into a single, groundbreaking toolkit for creating web experiences: The website builder. It will revolutionize the way you work and lets you create beautiful websites in no time - without the need to write a line of code.

YOOtheme Pro in detail

The new website builder is the heart of YOOtheme Pro and your most important tool. It allows you to customize and manage pretty much every aspect of your website and to build entire pages with modular building blocks, called elements. You can edit Joomla content, like menus and modules, without leaving the YOOtheme Pro administration. All this happens in a real-time preview, so that you can see changes that you make immediately.

To give you an overview of all the new YOOtheme Pro features, we've lauched a brand new landing page. Check it out!

Fuse — A new website, new possibilities

With YOOtheme Pro we also rethought our theme creation process. Instead of our previous, monolithic theme releases we move to a new system of modular and evolving websites. So, today we are thrilled to present our first website based on YOOtheme Pro: Fuse! It introduces the new default theme, the first style called Minimal and 8 different page layouts - all wrapped in elegant, web agency themed demo content.

YOOtheme Pro - Fuse website

The default YOOtheme Pro theme is sporting a classical widescreen layout and is stuffed with features, like different header layouts, a special mobile header and many options to create unique top and bottom sections. The first available style has a minimalistic and modern look. It's light, elegant and focused on typographical details. The topic of the website serves as a perfect basis for any agency or portfolio website and comes with 8 prebuilt layouts: Frontpage, Portfolio, Services, About, FAQ, Case Study, Careers and Press.

  • Default YOOtheme Pro Theme
  • 1 Style called Minimal
  • 8 Layouts for different page types
  • Web agency and business topic

Same release cycle, new concept

So what does YOOtheme Pro mean for you and your subscription?

The basic principle remains the same. At the beginning of each month a new Website, like Fuse, will be released. It bundles the theme itself and its features, styles for a different look, pages with different layouts and demo content for a specific topic. Thanks to the modular structure of YOOtheme Pro, it will be easy to transform one website into various creations. With this concept, we are able to offer you more possibilities than ever before.

The best thing is, all websites will be updated continuously. This means that we will keep adding new features, styles, layouts and topics to each release. This is amazing, because each website is part of an evolving ecosystem and will continue to grow and evolve along with it.

We still have lots of ideas for the YOOtheme Pro website builder, which we will add step by step, aiming for monthly feature releases. You can expect YOOtheme 1.1 by November, 1.2 by December and so on.

Meanwhile you don't have to worry. There is no need to upgrade your existing subscription. All members have immediate access to YOOtheme Pro including all new features. Basically nothing is going to change for you — except the product, which is way better than before.

What about Warp and Widgetkit?

The YOOtheme Pro website builder and its themes are based on a completely new framework. You can consider it the successor of Warp and Widgetkit, since it combines the features of both — which is great. Unfortunately, this also means that it will be impossible to upgrade older themes to the new system. But there is absolutely no need to upgrade your already running website. There are no plans to end Warp 7 theme support any time soon.

Note, if you are using Widgetkit 2 or ZOO, you will also need to update the extensions to the latest version.

Hello, Pro

Please remember: This is the first release of a completely new system and we are working on constant improvements. So, if you find any bugs, please report them in the support center and we will fix them right away. Our current focus is on making YOOtheme Pro available for WordPress, with Pagekit following.

Now go on, explore!

UPDATE: WordPress Members

We understand that it is hard for our WordPress users to wait for YOOtheme Pro. Therefore, we are giving access to the Joomla version to all WordPress members, as well. That way you can already play around and give it a try. We are working hard on getting the WordPress version ready as soon as possible. There's still a large amount of work to be done, but we intend to release YOOtheme Pro for WordPress in November.

    Does anyone know when the Wordpress version will be released? I'm a wordpress subscriber (I don't have Joomla) and haven't had any new themes since the beginning of August. My subscription also expires soon and would have liked to have seen the Pro version before renewing. I'm a little disappointed in the lack of information regarding Wordpress advice, I cant seem to find anything regarding the release. Will you be compensating subscription time?

    Ps. Dont get me wrong, I love all the work you do and was looking forward to the countdown only to be left disappointed.

    First of all congratulations guys!Have already testing Yootheme Pro.
    At the post you say that we can NOT use widgetkit and if we want to use ZOO we have to get the new version.
    I just installed ZOO and in builder it says that it is available for only static content pages...
    So, how we will be able ZOO and widgetkit like we used to, if we can't use widgetkit now? And also this forces us to use Warp 7, since all extensions from Zoolanders work with widgetkit2 and Zoo using Uikit

      good point regarding zoolanders stuff. They are usually very fast and in sync with yootheme releases though so I would imagine they will not be far behind. I am going to check with Zoolanders directly. If I hear anything I will post here - if you could do the same that would be great @yannis :)

      You can use ZOO 3.3.22+ with YOOtheme Pro. If there are any issues please report them in the support center.

      You can't use Widgetkit with YOOtheme Pro, because Widgetkit is built with UIkit 2 and YOOtheme Pro with UIkit 3. Slideshows, etc are not ready in UIkit 3 and will come later to YOOtheme Pro as soon as they are ready.

    There was an August theme for wordpress, "Luna".
    And "Fuse", I assume, will be there for wordpress, too.
    But it is just frustrating that nobody told us (obviously less valued) wordpress users. We just have to wait one month longer...which is, as we pay for it not acceptable!

    I have this running now - looks awesome - a real time saver!

    Biggest issue for me will be that ZOO/WIDGETKIT integration is core to all my projects.

    So if I can get the elements to display Zoo content with the same power as widgetkit offers then its perfect.

    Without Widgetkit integration it's not ready for me yet, though. But I'll be sure to explore and play around with it so I can hit the ground running when the features match up with my needs. From the looks of it, it'll save me quite a bit of time.

    I'm not sure I like it?

    Testing it in Joomla, it seems as though its going to be great for someone who wants to buy just 1 template, to set up there own website, with very little knowledge.
    But anybody who like to get involved overriding CSS, tweaking & working with Joomla Modules (like me) are not going to enjoy using it.

    Maybe I'm wrong? Maybe I just need to adjust my mindset & dig around a bit more, but initial thoughts are that I don't like the easy website builder approach.

      We agree with you. Also, if you build websites thinking that the client manages content, customer is obliged to use the page builder ... We think it is not aimed for Joomla professional. It is designed for users who want to do them all. But we also will try to expand the vision and trying to understand more Yootheme Pro.

      Give it a try ;-) It's the first release of a completely new generation of themes. YOOtheme Pro will be so much more powerful than our older themes.

      The child theme concept itself is so powerful. Sure, you can override CSS, tweak everything, etc.

      And the page builder is completely optional. But we are building all our sites with it and can't imagine to do it without anymore ;-) It is very similar to Widgetkit...

    Mixed Feelings here.

    Yes it looks great and the code is well written.
    I think i can create a beautifull site for myself.

    But i can't sell it to my customers.
    - This package almost has no modules, but "builder-blocks" you can't edit on the frontend. This is really a must to keep it simple!
    - The way it's build you can only edit the site to go to templates, and the website builder. This would be very hard to explain to the customer.
    - Last but not least. There are no ACL options. The customer has access to everything and i'm the one who need to fix everything they destroy.

    Some questions:
    - What about the Widgetkit Component when it will be completely integrated in Yootheme PRO? I would like to use it on other non-yootheme templates as well!

    - Will there be an empty (master) theme so i can use it for the designs the will be provided by my designer?

    I would like to see the power of your templates with an example template build with the Joomla core features instead of a pagebuilder.


    Regards,
    Jeroen (happy customer since 2013)

      Almost forget the biggest thing for me:

      You can only add custom css in the builder.
      So no quick editing the custom.css file anymore. This will take a lot of my time.

      Hi, here are some quick answers :-)

      Of course you can add a custom CSS file, through child themes. It is super easy. We should have some docs ready by tomorrow how to do it. In the meanwhile you find some infos here https://yootheme.com/blog/2016/09/15/yootheme-pro-1-click-updates

      Features like Modules to edit from the front-end, launching the page builder from articles and ACL options will all come ;-) Please remember, this is the first, initial release... The feature set will improve every month.

      The Widgetkit functionality will be completely added to YOOtheme Pro.

      I'm not sure if you need an "empty theme". The default one is perfect for this use case.

      The page builder is optional, you don't have to use it. But I personally can't imagine building a site without ;-) It's very similar to Widgetkit. Give it a try.

      We will continuously improve YOOtheme Pro and add new features... We have so many ideas and suggestions like yours are very welcome and will definitely be implemented soon.

    YOOtheme and community, understanding that pagekit will be available sometime after wordpress (next year?) what is the recommendation for site builders who need a stopgap replacement for galleries, slideshows, slidesets, grids, switchers and stacks. Any Joomla component/mod a reasonable "stop-gap"?

    Absolutely wonderful Yoo!

    I know there have been discussions in the past about the difficulty in using your themes, mostly by non-developers (I am not a developer myself) but this current slate of video tutorials are an excellent introduction to YTPro! In addition the YTPro written documentation might be your best offering yet! Keep it flowing folks!

    I'm looking forward to seeing where you go from here with additions to modules etc. Perhaps a wee video on Zoo integration might be in order? Your Product Gallery was one of the original features back in Cloud Theme days that drew me to Yoo!

    Congrat's!

    Its kind of unfamiliar at the moment, but I think its really a step into the right direction - very nice work! I really really love the new ability to style elements in a very comfortable way, and the simple yet powerful child theme overrides are great (almost too simple - at first I couln't realize how easy it works).

    But one - in my opinion very big - point: what about a new menu system? I remember, that a powerful megamenu was mentioned very often in the warp 8 thread. Well the whole header thing with different options is great, but what about images or modules within subnavs, or at least 3rd+ level navigation?

    Im looking forward to seeing the wordpress version. maybe the page builder will be more integrated in wordpress post-types instead of a special theme menupoint?

    There are a lot of things I like about it (just started playing with it), but I miss the module positions. The module architecture is one of the most powerful aspects of Joomla and I feel like this new direction is abandoning it. I loved the Warp Framework and used it to create many highly customized sites quickly.

    Hi Guys :),

    So I really like the way the Pro builder looks! And from the output, it looks really clean and lean!

    However, I haven't seen anything about multi-language.. How does this work with the menu for example? Since it's a 'best practice' to have multiple menu's per language...?

    All the best,
    Tim

    Interesting release for sure. Definitely a big change in workflow that many are complaining about - but let's imagine it's 2005 and we never changed... change is needed. Looking forward to future releases and Widgetkit integration (I have been relying solely on that to build my sites).

    Will JCE Editor work inside the builder?

    How soon will ACL options be integrated?

    but
    Please - make a floating menu to the mobile version of the site, for example, here at this website https://www.reebokinparks.com/about/Moscow/
    It is very necessary, really
    I have a long history on the site, and without such a menu, most visitors go after reading one article- if five minutes to read the material, then the wind-up page per minute nobody wants ((
