Nice update but honestly after more than 2 months i was waiting for a bit more ...
I hoped the wait was long because Content provider and Form element were added to this release but finally no.

So we keep working with Warp ... after more than 15 months ... long long long ...

Edited after extensive tests :

Bugs are gone and YTP Builder is now much more powerfull.
Widgetkit 2 can be use in Joomla positions waiting for content provider.
So i think we can start using YTP in production !
Thanks for this nice work !

Please implement jQuery detection for the files templates/yootheme/js/theme.js and templates/yootheme_child/js/theme.js

As already mentioned in this thread it is not that easy to tell my 50+ customers to enable jQuery with the new update.

Please also think about your own customers with developer licenses. You are taking away a basic script by default on running systems!

Please think about a workaround for existing systems that are already built and customized with the expectation that jQuery is not suddenly taken away.

Thank you!

Hi Pascal

I was very hesitant to start the YTP builder, i must say it s amazing, besides the form element doesn t exists even on wrap so you can always use what you have, i use personally for joomla the breezing form but also rsforms have a nice integration, and of course for wp contact form 7.

I think yootheme deserves some credit from where the builder started and to what the builder has become. Save an enormous amount of hours in front end by using the builder, and it s always good to start working on it while the projects evolves to help you migrate because it s totally different mentality and strategy from wrap

Thank you for the update. For those that may see weird issues with the lightbox, etc. make any change in the styler and save and it will most likely be fixed. I really hope the Child theme style issue for Wordpress Multisites is next on your todo list.

Wrong script paths after YOOtheme Pro 1.10 update

See also here

For some unknown reason 'templates/yootheme/css' will be added to some scripts after the update. Can anyone help?

Thank you!

Avatar pascal.netenvie answered

@Nemanja : What you say about form is right, ok.
But other things (like Content Provider) are still missing to do things as we can with Widgetkit 2 ...
So for us, which use Yootheme templates to work and developp websites, it is not enough to switch.
We are not beta-testers or guys playing with webtools as a hobby !!!

So ok i have a test website with Pro and i give it a try regularly ...

But if after each framework change we have a 2 years hole without an effective solution for production websites and have to continue using the old one that, after a while, will be shortly obsolete, something is wrong !
Or if you prefer other words too long road to a production release !!

Yootheme, please fix the behaviour of the themes after update (framed theme goes to the left).

Or please NAIL the tip to change something in the style to recompile LESS on the top of the support forums. After every update they are full of the same complaints as people start complaining first and don't look if others had the problem, too anymore.

Gradient overlays

Gradient overlays for section background images and videos would be a really cool feature.

I'm having video issues. I have multiple YouTube videos that were fine in 1.9.9, but in 1.10.0 it changed the size.
For Example if I put: 500px it break it, I must remove the "px" for it to work.
Also, I have a header that on mobile showed a placeholder image, but now shows a play button for youtube. How do I change it back?
How can I auto-size a youtube video as the "auto" settings never work.
new Question Opened Here

The update to 1.10.0 completed altered the layout of my site. Video hero section completely gone from homepage, layout no longer full width, menu layout and style changed.

I'm pretty upset - any suggestions?

Hi toddlando,

It's weird but I found I had to wait for a few minutes after a significant update. Initially I see the site without full width and some other style problems. Hard refresh 2 min later and it's good.

I can only assume it's something to do with compiling the css files.

Did your site look ok after a while?

Avatar toddlando answered

I wasted half a day troubleshooting and trying to get the site to look right. (Same issue, site will not layout full-width, video will not display in full width and is not visible when editing in site builder). Finally restored from backup. Tried again, same results. Will wait for Yootheme to fix this buggy update.

Hi @toddlando

a lot of people updated but not many had an issue, i suggest you follow the instructions on the the very first thread

How to report issues here
Always create an new question for your issue. Then post an answer here with a short description and a link to the thread with your issue.

So without a link to the issue, and on your link super admin access to have a look i am afraid we cannot be of much help

they layout changes you just need to recompile the CSS it happen to me before on other updates and can be fixed by going to any style setting and changing the primary color to something else click save and your website should come back to where it was

sorry to hear about spending a lot of time, and always make a full backup before updating anything on your website this is a must, and if you have some sort of cpanel on your hosting it shouldn t take you more than 5-10 minutes to make the backup and restore from a backup

--->This means you have good developers who can tweak and make custom YTP elements
https://yootheme.com/pro/docs/#/child-themes
Scroll down to Adding a custom Builder Element

If you use wordpress you can easily use this plugin
https://wordpress.org/plugins/list-category-posts/ and integrate dynamic content and style it the way you want

If you use joomla you can still use widgetkit and call in your dynamic content

YTP and warp don t work the same , so development the strategy has to change. I dont have any huge development projects that is true but the above workarounds work for me. The Dynamic content is on it way in the todo list, as you can see many people liked your post :)

As I said, I've restored my site from backup - would never apply an update without one. There is nothing to share - the site has been restored to the previous version. I'll wait for Yootheme to fix the issues in 1.10.0. Not a particular problem for me, but frustrating to spend so much time with no luck getting it to work.

I've installed every yootheme pro update to date without issue. I love it so far, and most of the missing feature issues listed here don't really apply to my use case. I am a developer, managing 45 sites - maybe YoothemePro is better on Joomla than wordpress? After an initial relearning of my basic development methodology, I can't imagine going back.

Hey @pascal.netenvie,

I don't mean to come off as chastising or abrasive but from one "non-beta-tester or guy playing with webtools as a hobby" to another we converted to YTP as soon as the WK2 integration was added which was quite awhile ago and we haven't looked back. Build time has dropped by well over 50% and we work heavily in Zoo on many of our upper tier sites and we have no problems pulling in dynamic content via WK2 Zoo or ZooPro content providers. We've build upwards of 60 sites this year and I can easily build-out from a mock-up in about 2 or 3 hours and pass it on to have the content populated.

I say all of this to hopefully pass on some helpful advice, you can make the switch now and I promise you that once you've passed the learning curve you'll kick yourself for waiting so long. By the way, we build everything custom so we pretty much ignore whatever template has been recently released and all that matters at this point is what new features have been released with the newest version; this has given our designers a huge amount of freedom to no longer need to start with a template and design from there. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

thank you for your feedback @toddlando
i also updated many of my websites to the new YTP pro without any issues link
, i hope you could make a ticket and give us a chance to look at your issue closer, as you might have something we missed, so many configurations and servers out there

if you could make a ticket and share credentials and link here it would be great to have a look, or share a backup if it s small

Hey @tommy.bradley,
Thanks for your feedback.
We already done one website with Pro and having a testing one.

To be true until now we had severe sessions problems causing too much time loose but it's just solved.
So now we can go on and as you suggest use WK2 with YTP ... !

I think we just need a 1.10.1 version who solved the Jquery problem ...

Cheers.

Just a reflexion:
Wouldn't it be better to still have the possiblity to have a fallback image?
There are some people who have youtube blocked at work for example. So they would see a fallback image instead of a broken video symbol...

Please fix IE 11 compatibility ASAP. Unfortunately that is a big showstopper as still many companies use that stone-age old browser.
