Aurora Theme

Happy new year, everyone! 2015 starts awesome! We’ve got two great releases for you. First, a new theme: Aurora, and it comes with something completely new - it’s the first theme built with the revolutionary Widgetkit 2! The next generation of our beloved toolkit is built freshly from the ground up and based on a new concept. With Widgetkit 2 you are able to display your widget anywhere on your website by just using shortcodes. We are preparing a blog post to give you all details about the new stuff in Widgetkit 2 — so be excited!

Aurora provides a special sidebar layout position where we've published the main menu. It can also be set to be fixed in its position. The Sidebar width can be modified from 15% to 50%. In some of our styles the sidebar layout position features background images, which can optionally be fixed. In addition, we provide a subtle parallax scrolling effect for the images.

As mentioned above, Aurora is the first theme which applies Widgetkit 2. We have also added a Bonus Grid Widget for Aurora. The grid features a nice overlay caption effect for image elements in grid items. Just select "Above" or "Below" the title to align media and it will work automatically.

  • Optionally fixed Sidebar Layout
  • Subtle parallax background effect
  • Ripple effect for buttons and navigations
  • Section divider and additional layout positions
  • Show/ Hide page title in WordPress
  • 6 pre-built style variations
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration
  • Based on UIkit and Warp framework
  • WooCommerce support
  • Widgetkit 2 Grid bonus widget

UIkit 2.13 released

Use multiple UIkit versions side by side without any conflicts

Dec
05
UIkit 2.13 released

Today we are pleased to announce a new version of UIkit. This time we focused on making UIkit more future proof and robust when multiple versions of it are used on the same page. Imagine more and more themes and extensions are built with UIkit and loaded on the same page. Even worse, if they load different versions of UIkit, it will cause trouble as different releases might use the same components and classes but in different ways. UIkit 2.13 now allows you to load multiple instances of UIkit side by side without any conflicts.

Goodbye Joomla 2.5

We will drop support for Joomla 2.5 by the end of the year

We will drop support for Joomla 2.5 by the end of the year

By the end of the year Joomla will discontinue its official support for Joomla 2.5. If you are still using this older CMS version of Joomla it's now time to upgrade! There will be no more updates and security patches available for this version. We will also drop the support of Joomla 2.5. This means our future themes will not be available for Joomla 2.5. December’s Stage theme is the last one which supports Joomla 2.5 . Starting with January 2015 all themes will only be available for Joomla 3. Although the 2.5 versions of older themes will still be available in the download archive. The same also applies to Widgetkit and ZOO.

Stage Theme

The December 2014 Theme, Stage, stands out with a framed page layout, various fullscreen positions and a Smoothscroll navigation, making it a great base for one page websites.

Stage provides an optional framed page layout to give your website a very sophisticated look, emphasized through the use of elegant typography. If the frame is turned off, the navbar will remain fixed to the top of the page with the logo centered between the menu items.

Three fullscreen positions for background images as well as the option to extend other positions to fill the entire viewport give your content plenty of space. Additionally, you can apply three different background colors to these sections. The blog styling offers a lot of flexibility, allowing you to center content and to box articles. These styles can be combined as you like and be assigned to different layouts.

  • Framed page layout
  • Fullscreen positions
  • Centered and fixed navbar
  • Smoothscroll navigation
  • 8 pre-built style variations
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration
  • Based on UIkit and Warp framework
  • Woocommerce support
  • Widgetkit bonus styles

Peak Theme

November 2014 YOOtheme club theme

Nov

Peak Theme

Welcome our November 2014 theme: Peak! With its modern flat design, it can be used for all sorts of web experiences, for example business or retail websites. While the general approach of this theme is minimalistic, it stands out with lovingly crafted details, like the hover effects on buttons, special overlays and of course, different style variations.

Peak comes with a number of utile features that make this theme particularly flexible. It provides two different menu positions, allowing you to decide whether you want to align the main navigation horizontally or vertically. The vertical navbar is reduced to take up as little space as possible – so you can focus the layout on your content – but can also be fully revealed by default or on hover. Furthermore, Peak provides an optional blog layout that elegantly places the featured image to the left of the article. As a little eye catcher the theme also features a special SVG overlay effect to capture your visitors' attention. We are also excited to announce that Peak provides full Woocommerce integration, so that your shop will perfectly fit the overall design of the theme.

Peak 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, Peak 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
  • Beautiful off-canvas navigation for mobile devices
  • All Warp framework features are available
  • Two different menu positions
  • Optional Blog Layout
  • SVG overlay
  • Widgetkit Bonusstyle
