WordPress club launch

WordPress is a kick-ass blog tool and publishing platform and we were constantly being asked if we ever release our YOOtheme templates for WordPress... And today we are happy to announce the addition of WordPress themes to our template design collection. WordPress is the most popular open source blogging tool on the web and is being used by millions of people everyday. WordPress has evolved from a blogging solution to a nice and easy to use content management system. With the latest major version 3.0 some cool new API features were introduced including the Custom Menus.

A WordPress website offers a great solution for various purposes and can even be extended with thousands of available plugins. Because of it's simplicity WordPress is sometimes just what you need instead of using a more complex content management system like Joomla! or Drupal. Now with our collection of WordPress themes you can use YOOtheme designs on your WordPress website!

Free Halloween Icon Set

Trick or Treat! Say Hello to Geek Zombie, Ninja Ghost, Cheshire Cat and a creepy pumpkin

Oct
19
Free Halloween Icon Set

Be prepared, when the scariest time in the year comes: Halloween. Our brand new free Halloween icon set includes 4 handcrafted icons: Watch out for the Geek Zombie! When he crosses the street with his weird glasses and his iPad you can only do one thing: run. Otherwise you will end up like him and we do not think it will be a pleasure. The Ninja Ghost is the kind of buddy who you don´t want to have in front of your door, even if you have enough candy. The Cheshire Cat looks very cute, but only on first sight. Behind the friendly eyes and smile hides a creature which is anything but nice. Last but not least we have our classic Halloween pumpkin, which looks very scary. Of course this little fellow must not be missing during Halloween. Of course all icons are designed to match with all our club icon sets.

Interview about Warp 5.5

In this interview we give a quick peek inside the Warp 5.5 theme framework

Sep
08

Last week we were asked some questions about our new Warp 5.5 theme framework. This was a part of the research done by Team EaSE for their Joomla! Template Tools Part Three article which is published in the latest Joomla! community magazine issue. We don't want to hold back this interview so everybody can enjoy reading! Here we go:

Why is a framework needed for template development after all?

Each time when you are developing a template you usually deal with the same things, for example you use a certain folder structure to organize your PHP, CSS and Javascript files or you rely on features like layouts, compression and caching. And because you dont want start from scratch coding all these features all over again and again, you better use a framework to provide you with a structure how to organize your template files and also a rich toolset to solve your common problems. That way you take your time and focus on the more important individual parts of your template design.
