New Warp 5.5 framework

Over the last couple of months we developed the new Warp 5.5 theme framework which is the new foundation of all our YOOtheme templates. In this time we have rewritten the complete Warp theme framework to make it more modular, flexible and also extendible. Currently all Warp 5 templates are updated and six more will follow in the next days so all our templates since 2009 run on the new framework. This means 20 templates will use Warp 5.5! In this article we want to highlight some of the key features of our new Warp 5.5 theme framework. Enjoy!

Royal Plaza template

Royal Plaza template

Its July and YOOtheme delivers its brand new template "Royal Plaza". It comes with 3 main color variations to give your site a new and individual look. They differ completely in module styles, typography and the whole look of the site. Its like three different templates combined in one! We have a modern and neutral business look, a vintage style with some more retro elements and finally a shiny premium look. These different styles make the template really versatile to fit all kinds of websites. Additionally you can set your template to a plain style of each variation, to turn off the wrapper edges of the site.

We built in a second menu position "menuright". Now you are free to place the menu at the left side, the right side or even menus at both sides of the menubar. These positions give you the freedom to publish the logo anywhere in the header, even in the middle between both menus. Further we put a second row of bottom modules into the footer of the site.

Feature list

  • A variety of template color variations
  • Built with the Warp5 template framework
  • Multi-column dropdown menu
  • Lots of modules with color variations, endless combinations with icons and badges possible
  • 2-1-3 column ordering for search engine friendliness
  • Compact size, using gzip and image sprites
  • Works with all YOOtools (Joomla 1.5 only)

Jun

YOOicons launched

At the end of our "YOOtheme templates - An inside look!" presentation, we did at JandBeyond, we showed the audience a little teaser of our secret project we were working on the last 9 months: Our new YOOicons! And today we are very proud to open the gates to the new website presenting our icons.

You may already use one of our templates to build good looking websites. But what about your content? Wouldn't it be great to have some real eye-catching icons to beautify the content of your website? Icons are an essential content element for web design. Today almost every major website uses icons to highlight important parts in their content. This is why we came up with the idea of creating handcrafted icon sets for web and print projects. Today we are proud to open our brand new YOOtheme icon club! With the icon club we will offer commercial icon sets. But we will also have some freebie icon sets in the future.
