Helios Theme

Spring starts with our newest theme release Helios. This modern, widescreen theme stands out with a slightly richer design approach, including gradients, box shadows and subtle textures.

Helios Theme is packed to burst with useful features and neat little details. The Header position will automatically turn a widget/module that is published there into a fullscreen header. Additionally the theme offers a mouse following gradient stalker as an eye-catching effect. The main navigation features the option to apply a centered full width dropdown and can also be set fixed, so that it will remain at the top of the window while you scroll the site.

All section blocks provide lots of options to further individualize your site. You can apply different backgrounds, textures, paddings and adjust the container width. To give you more flexibility, we also added a new panel and another subnav style.

The 6 styles bring a lot of variety to the theme, changing between a more skeuomorphic to a completely flat design throughout the different presets. Of course, Helios also features a special blog style that uses the featured image with an overlay as a teaser for your articles.

  • Fixed main menu
  • Centered dropdown menu
  • Automatic hero header position
  • Eye-catching gradient stalker
  • Multiple block styles
  • Additional layout positions
  • New demo pages built with Widgetkit 2
  • Full UIkit components styling
  • 6 pre-built style variations
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration
  • WooCommerce support

Refined User Interface and Demo Packages

Mar

Widgetkit 2.2 released

We are really proud of the speedy and healthy update cycle of Widgetkit 2. Version 2.0 had been developed from the ground up, allowing for a clean separation between Widget content and Widget representation. The 2.1 release added more Widgets, including the much desired Gallery. With the latest 2.2 release, we are improving the user interface, taking into consideration the feedback you've been giving us these past few weeks. We've also created a complete demo package for you to understand what's possible - including documentation of all Widget parameters.

Salt Theme

Salt Theme

The beginning of March is bringing some warmer air and Salt, our brand new theme. Right after the release of the brand new Widgetkit 2.1, Salt impresses with two Grid Slider bonus widgets, which make it a great base for any kind of shop website. The fullscreen overlay menu and a custom blog style give the theme a unique feel and style.

With the Grid Slider you can display several slideshows within one grid. The Salt theme includes two Grid Slider bonus widgets featuring some additional functionalities. For example, you can apply a different color to each grid item or display the grid slider in an alternating two column layout.

To leave more space for your content, Salt uses a fullscreen overlay menu with a single toggle. The accordion-like navigation reveals sub items on hover, so that parent items work as links as well. This menu style is optional. If you decide to stick with the "traditional" top navigation, you can also fix it to the top of the browser.

In addition to all this, Salt comes with the option to apply 3 different site container widths: Fullscreen, Large and Small. An elegant custom blog style with full width images and a two column text layout can be applied to your articles. To see these and more features in action, check out the theme demo.

  • Two Widgetkit 2 Grid Slider bonus widgets
  • Optional Fullscreen Overlay navigation
  • Default navigation can be set fixed
  • 3 different site wrapper widths
  • Custom blog layout
  • 6 pre-built style variations
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration
  • WooCommerce support

Venice Theme

The beginning of February brings you a brand new theme release. Venice Theme opens big with a fullscreen slideshow to present images and videos. The special (and optional) two column blog layout works particularly well with image oriented websites, like traveling magazines or architecture portfolios.

Venice Theme comes with a fullscreen position that is ideal to present images, videos or a Widgetkit Slideshow including both. The slideshow will cover the entire viewport and fit all device widths.

The main navigation can be fixed to the top of the window. Additionally, you can enable an alternative navbar, placing the logo between the items of a centered menu. To match the Fullscreen Position, the navigation will adapt another style turning transparent and moving the logo above the navbar.

This theme features two different blog styles. The default stacked layout with the featured image above the title and a special alternating two column grid layout. It places image and article side by side and adapts seamlessly to different device sizes.

Venice utilizes Widgetkit 2 and also provides a Bonus Switcher Widget that uses thumbnails to navigate through different content panes. More features include a Socialbar widget position and different section backgrounds.

  • Fullscreen position
  • Special alternating two column blog layout
  • Adaptive and optionally fixed navigation
  • Hide page title and pagination in WordPress
  • Socialbar widget position
  • Default, alternative and image section backgrounds
  • 6 pre-built style variations
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration
  • WooCommerce support
