Widgetkit and Yootheme Pro

Can anyone from Yootheme clarify your info re Wigetkit not working with Pro because Pro incorporates Widgetkit. Does this mean widgets such as Slideshow are built in or just don't work or apply to Pro

  • Joomla
  • Widgetkit
  • YOOtheme Pro

Correct, Yootheme Pro essentially contains "Widgetkit 3" which is based on uikit 3.

Currently the feature set of Wdgetkit 3 is smaller than Widgetkit 2. But Yootheme is working on closing that gap and adding more and cooler features.

We just released Widgetkit 2.9 which works with YOOtheme Pro.

With this release, we have applied a noconflict mode that prevents issues previously arising from these different versions. So now you can use both in the same installation and add widgets, like a Slideshow, to your modules/widgets and articles. Also be aware that, since different versions of UIkit are being loaded, your theme's style won't affect Widgetkit. It always applies the default UIkit 2 style to its widgets.

Thanks for your reply Kayan but with respect that still doesn't tell me what widgets are in there. I cant find any reference to 'Widgetkit 3' to find this out either. It's important because without certain widgets Pro wont do what I need it to do despite it looking like a very good product

Thanks Mike

There is no reference to Widgetkit 3. I just used this "term" to illustrate the sitation. From the blog:

This time it’s different. Our YOOtheme Pro website builder and its themes are based on a completely new framework, which also integrates the features of Widgetkit 2. Therefore it is the successor of both, Warp and Widgetkit. It will be based on UIkit 3, whose release we just announced this week.

Currently none of the widgets like slideshow, slider, slideset, parallax, etc are part of "Yootheme Pro". It also doesn't have any content providers for Joomla, Zoo, and so on. But Yootheme said they were working on it. I dont' have an ETA.

The following is available:

Accordion
Alert
Button
Code
Description List
Divider
Headline
Html
Icon
Image
J! Module
List
Map
Panel
Quotation
Social
Subnav
Text

I have clearly misunderstood why there is a badge saying support, that normally means an employee....my apologies. I am perplexed as to how Yootheme support works therefore...

Thanks for this Kayhan...is there going to be any information on Yoothemes website as to a) how Widgetkit 2 can be used with Pro and b) what the new release is exactly because I cannot find any reference to this or how either of these things work, what they are, etc.

how Widgetkit 2 can be used with Pro

There is no integration. But you can create a Joomla module with Widgetkit and then include the Joomla module with the Builder.

Sorry for not coming back...I think I understand your reply and am planning to try this out to fully understand. So at this point I think it does give me the answer. I will be trying Pro

I have now started using Pro and have attempted to get slidshow running and although I set it up in a module it is not them working in the builder. I have Widgetkit 2.7 and notice Yootheme state it is 2.9 that works with pro. Is this my problem. Do I have to upgrade to 2.9 for slideshow to work?

You basically answered your own question already ;-)

So yes, you will have to backup and update.

Where is the documentation to use the Widgetkit 'like' items in YooTheme Pro? I am not sure how to implement them in the page builds etc. Thanks if anyone can give me tips.
