Spark template

Happy New Year 2011 guys! We are starting the 2011 theme collection with our new "Spark" template. Inspired by all the sparks and glows of new years fireworks its glamorous look fits perfect for fashion or nightlife websites.

Spark is a dark themed template which comes with a light and clean designed layout. The template backgrounds are animated with some spectacular glitter and glow effects. We used different image masks and background tiles which are smoothly animated with JavaScript for the template variations. These shiny background effects are a real eye-catcher! If you like it simple with no background animations you can easily turn them off in the template configuration.

Feature list

  • A variety of template color variations
  • Lots of modules with color variations, endless combinations with icons and badges possible
  • Built with the Warp5.5 template framework
  • Utilizes different webfonts
  • Compact size, using minified CSS/JS, gzip and data-URI's
  • Works with all YOOtools (Joomla 1.5 only)

Oct

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!

Oct

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.
