Avion Theme

Let's get to business with Avion, our October 2015 theme release. With its tiled layout and overall clean design, Avion provides the perfect base for your corporate website. Two navbar layouts, four custom widget plugins and a number of handy features offer you the flexibility you need to present content that is heavy on typography.

Navbar Layouts

This theme features two different header layouts. One places the logo inside the navbar, the other one above it, so that big logos fit easily and maintain their proportions. You can select the presets through the Warp administration and assign them to different layouts.

Navbar Layouts

Custom Widgets

Of course, Avion comes with Widgetkit 2 including four custom widget plugins. A special Gallery widget provides a nice overlay effect and an additional arrow icon. The custom Slideset is great for displaying an events calendar with a hover effect on each item. The tabs switcher fits perfectly with box style panels and the tabbed navigation will always extend to fill the entire panel height. On top of all this, Avion also includes a widget for displaying Tweets from the Twitter content provider.

Custom Widgets

Special Effects

We've created some interactive effects for Avion theme to enhance the user experience. A fancy particles animation with different color modi can be selected for each module. But you can also add this manually via data attribute. Additionally, Avion automatically applies a Google materials inspired ripple effect to a number of UI elements.

Special Effects

Additions

Avion theme comes with the usual 6 style presets and some additional layout options. A number of useful utility classes and theme components will help you arrange your content. For a full list of these classes and a more detailed overview of the theme's features, check out the Features page.

  • 2 different navbar layouts
  • Custom Gallery, Slideset, Tabs and Twitter widgets
  • Particles animation
  • Ripple effect
  • Demo pages built with Widgetkit 2
  • Full UIkit components styling
  • 6 pre-built color schemes

JoomlaDay Germany 2015

We presented UIkit, Warp and Widgetkit and had a fun couple of days together

JoomlaDay Germany 2015

After 4 years the Joomla community finally gathered in our home town Hamburg again! Last week we came together at Trabrennbahn Bahrenfeld, a local harness racing track, for JoomlaDay Germany and to celebrate the 10th birthday of Joomla! This event is always a great opportunity to meet friends, exchange knowledge and to sit down for some interesting talks. To us this was a particularly exciting as we not only got in touch with users and answered their questions in our tech corner.

We also had the chance to give talks of our own. If you couldn't make it to JoomlaDay or our talks, don't worry! All three sessions on UIkit, Warp and Widgetkit, which were held in German, have been recorded and uploaded to the JandBeyond YouTube channel.

Sun Theme

Sun Theme

Hot off the press we present the September issue of our 2015 theme series, Sun. This theme is heavy on well used typography and will bring your magazine, blog or news website to life. Four additional Widgetkit plugins, as well as a number of little features will help you organize your content with ease.

Flexible Article Styling

Flexible Article Styling

Sun gives you unprecedented freedom when it comes to displaying articles. Not only does it include its own special blog style. You can also use Widgetkit to render articles in, say a Grid widget, and apply the same styling with Widgetkit. That way you can publish different categories on the same page and any position with the theme's custom design.

Theme Tags

Additionally you can assign different colors to tags from within the Warp administration. This allows you to thematically color code your articles.

Weather Shortcode

Weather Shortcode

News are inextricably linked to weather forecasts, which is why a weather feature could not be missed in this theme. Using a shortcode you can choose a location and the unit describing the temperature.

Events Widget

Events Widget

Another Widgetkit addition is the custom Events widget. Add information, like location and time to your content through custom fields and Widgetkit will include them nicely in the rendered layout.

Additions

Sun provides two more custom widgets. The List widget allows you to display different types of content, like a Twitter feed, in a list layout and the Tab widget adds a tabbed navigation to a switcher. When displaying tagged articles, the tag color will be applied as a border to the tab. You can explore all specials of the theme on the Features page and see them in action in our theme demo, which of course includes a number of custom pages.

  • includes custom Tabs, Article, List and Events widgets
  • 5 Different block Styling
  • Weather shortcode
  • Tag Highlighting
  • Demo pages built with Widgetkit 2
  • Full UIkit components styling
  • 6 pre-built color schemes
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration

HSH Nordbank Run 2015

YOOtheme pulled through!

HSH Nordbank Run 2015

Every year a popular charity run is arranged in Hamburg, the HSH Nordbank run. This time it took place right in front of our new HafenCity office. For this reason we took the opportunity to put on our running gear and participate. The weather was fine although it was almost too warm and dusty for running races. But we're all at the top of our game, so we made the 4km easily.

Of course we had to create our own shirts for this event to be recognized as an athletic and motivated team. As we are all into coding and also fast runners, our slogan was clear: Code Runner (pun intended)! In about 20 minutes our fastest code runners made the kilometers smoothly.

Afterwards we rewarded ourselves with a cold beer and BBQ on our terrace. On this occasion we invited our friends and families to spend a beautiful and delicious evening with us.

Best of all, this year the run raised more than 155.000 Euros. It will be donated to the Hamburg based organization „Kinder helfen Kindern“, which supports children from socially disadvantaged families. We are happy for the chance to contribute to this cause! Here are some impressions of the event:

Bento Theme

Bento Theme

July brings sun and loads of fun activities and Bento, our new theme release. Just in time for summer, this sporty and fresh theme presents a colorful yet clean look, perfect for your business or event website.

Navigation

Bento theme features an optional overlay menu with a hamburger icon to toggle the navigation. The navbar can be fixed to the top of the browser window. The fixed navbar can then be placed on top of the specially created Header position, so it will overlay the content and turn transparent. This is great, if you're using a hero image or a teaser slideshow.

Bento Slideset

We've also added a custom Slideset widget that comes in handy when displaying schedules, for example. Items can be filtered with a navigation that will be displayed in line with the widget/module title for a compact layout.

Block Appearance

Each module position can be styled individually. You can apply different backgrounds, padding and set each position to full height. As another feature, you can choose from three different background patterns that work well with all background colors.

In addition to all this, Bento comes with 6 different style variations. An optional custom blog style arranges articles in a nice centered layout with a big featured image. And as a little gimmick we added the .tm-price helper class to create pricing tables with a grid.

  • Widgetkit 2 Slideset bonus widgets
  • Optional overlay navigation with hamburger icon
  • Main navigation can be set fixed
  • Different block appearance options
  • Custom blog layout
  • Demo pages built with Widgetkit 2
  • Full UIkit components styling
  • 6 pre-built color schemes
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration
  • WooCommerce support
