Gusto Theme

Welcome Gusto, our 2015 theme release that will make your mouth water with a modern widescreen layout and tons of features and options. Gusto comes with a number of exclusive demo pages, perfectly fitted for gastronomy related websites. It features new and improved Warp options as well as additional block designs.

Block Options

Gusto theme supports some useful options for all block layout positions. All settings can be combined for a theme position. If you need different block settings for different pages, you can use layout profiles and assign them to your menu items.

One of the newest addition is the background image option. Just add the path to your image in the field of your layout position and it will be added as the background image of the respective block. Further you can now select between a handful of CSS modes to define how the image will blend with the block’s background color.

Gusto Block Options

Navigation

The main navigation of Gusto Theme supports the latest UIkit sticky navigation component features. You are able to select from 3 different navigation behaviors or styles and two layouts. The styles and the layouts can be combined. This makes 6 different navigation combinations.

Post Options

We have also added a feature to grant you more flexibility when working with post images in WordPress.

You can now decide whether your image will be positioned to the left, right or top of your posts. This option applies to single blog post views, as well. In our demo, images are aligned left in the posts view while the single view displays them at the top.

HSH Nordbank Run 2015

YOOtheme pulled through!

Jul

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

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

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.

Additionally the theme offers a mouse following gradient stalker as an eye-catching effect.

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.
