Today we are excited to announce the release of UIkit 3 Beta 26. This also marks the moment many of you have been waiting for: We are introducing the new Lightbox component! It includes various features to create visually more powerful galleries.
A couple of days ago we released what is one of the major updates to YOOtheme Pro since it was first introduced last year: The Style library! With its huge range of color variations it is a powerful feature for customizing your web projects. But of course that is not all you can expect this month. The YOOtheme Pro 1.8 release also holds another big improvement. We reworked the whole element settings user interface inside the Page Builder and enhanced many features.
This month we are mixing things up a bit. Instead of a new theme release we are thrilled to present to you another milestone in the development of YOOtheme Pro: The Style library! It offers a huge range of color variations for existing Pro styles and helps you to easily change the appearance of your whole website. The library has access to all Pro styles that have been released so far and new color variations will be added with every theme release. Take also a look at our YOOtheme Pro 1.8 to learn more about all the new features.
This YOOtheme Pro release is a really huge one — like two in one! The much anticipated Builder Module for Joomla and the Builder Widget for WordPress have arrived! But that‘s not all! Another giant feature is the new Parallax effect! From now on you can animate nearly every element in your layout, like text, images, section backgrounds as well as grids and galleries. More innovations of the latest YOOtheme Pro version are the Newsletter and the Popover element. And there is still more. Time to get excited!
Showtime for this month‘s release: Juno! Our June 2017 theme for Joomla and WordPress presents interior, architecture and furniture related content in 7 well-matched layouts. It comes with a bunch of new features from the latest YOOtheme Pro version 1.7, like the much anticipated Parallax effect as well as the Popover and Newsletter elements. All these are perfectly integrated into the light and modern style of Juno. The tiled layout and use of pastel colors make this release stand out.
UIkit is the work horse behind pretty much all of our products. It's the open source front-end framework we build and use ourselves to create the YOOtheme Pro Builder and all of our themes. Consequently, we are working on improving UIkit. Today we are happy to release the UIkit 3 Beta 23 which is packed with new components and features.
Just a few days after the release of YOOtheme Pro 1.6 we are happy to present to you our May 2017 theme Vibe. Apart from using the newest Pro features, like the Table and Countdown elements, it comes with a richer visual design and a focus on graphical details and modern effects. With its dark background, colorful gradients and subtle textures, Vibe is perfect for music artists, bands, DJs and of course all kinds of music related websites. But it can also be used for any other web project with its futuristic, dark style.
Today’s YOOtheme Pro 1.6 release is one you are really going to like :) It has the most wished for Pro feature on board: A WYSIWYG editor! But it doesn’t stop there. There are two new builder elements to make content creating more fun: the Table and the Countdown element. And of course, YOOtheme Pro 1.6 comes with a lot of improvements and bug fixes. All of this can be seen in action in our upcoming theme next week. Spoiler alert: It will be graphic-rich :) So, be excited!
Drum roll for the winners of this year’s 10 year anniversary competition! It has been overwhelming to receive so many exciting pictures from all over the world.
We are really impressed that our I♥YOO Logo traveled around to Australia, China, Russia, Italy and who knows where else. Some of the entries were so funny that they made us laugh out loud. Not everyone would dive into an icy lake (sorry we had to cut out your dog) or put on self-made YOOtheme swag. So, we had a hard time picking our favorite 10, but in the end we came to a choice. Congratulations to the winners! All ten of you win a membership and a special YOOtheme package. You will receive a notification by email today as well.
Many thanks again to everyone who joined this year’s I♥YOO contest. It made us very happy to see your love.
Since the launch of the first UIkit 3.0 beta version quite a lot of things have happened. We weren’t idle and worked like busy tech-bees on our modular front-end framework to improve its functionality. Yesterday, we just released the 21st beta version. We want to take this opportunity to highlight some of the additions and changes from the last few releases.
