The weather here in Hamburg makes us long for fire and warm socks, so let us get cozy with our multi-functional Pinewood Lake theme. Texture, authentic style and grunge elements make our March theme perfect for recreation hotels and resorts, wildlife parks and outdoor activities, restaurants and bars and other related businesses. So lean back, and let's dive into details.
Welcome to 2018 YOO family! Following our tradition we would like to make a small recap of everything that has happened and what we achieved last year. 2017 was all about rewriting UIkit and improving our new website builder YOOtheme Pro. We are very grateful for yet another successful year!
Hey YOOtheme Pro fans, it's time for a new theme in the new year! Here is our Vision, a modern design agency theme for WordPress and Joomla. It has a clear, straightforward look where the details play the main role. Vision not only has a great design, it also incorporates all the amazing features of YOOtheme Pro 1.11 with the highlight – the new Slider.
Not so long ago we released YOOtheme 1.10 with the Slideshow element. And after UIkit Beta 36 introduced the new Slider component, we’ve been working tirelessly to bring it to YOOtheme Pro. Now finally YOOtheme Pro 1.11 and the new Slider element are here! Apart from that, there are some great enhancements for the Slideshow and Headline element. But that’s not all.
Happy New Year, everyone! Let's start 2018 with UIKit Beta 36 and its highlight – the new Slider component. Other great features in this release include improvements of the uk-video attribute, more accessibility and some neat extras.
The last theme in 2017 is all about looking fabulous! Our new demo Florence is a beauty business theme and a perfect reminder to spruce up before Christmas. Florence also incorporates all the great features YOOtheme Pro released this year including our already popular Slideshow element.
Today we have an update you all have been waiting for: YOOtheme Pro 1.10. Its highlight, the brand-new Slideshow element, is based on our modern Slideshow component introduced with UIkit Beta 31 last month. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. We reworked everything related to the new Slideshow. The dotnav and the slidenav got a major design update in all existing styles, and there is a new thumbnail navigation. We also reviewed all layouts in the layout library and integrated the Slideshow to improve the user experience.
Aside from the Slideshow, the style customizer got a great update with new previews and reset options. Background videos now also work on mobile devices. There are new column options for image effects, jQuery got finally removed from YOOtheme Pro, and the list goes on and on. Let's take a closer look at all the new features.
Today is a special day for us. We've worked very hard and are happy to introduce some big improvements with UIkit 3 Beta 31! Finally, the new Slideshow component that you've all been waiting for is here. We think it is truly amazing! But that's not all. We also got rid of jQuery. Yes, you've heard right, UIkit is now a lot slicker :-) And there is more we would like to highlight in this post.
This year's JoomlaDay Germany took place in Königstein near Frankfurt on September 22. Joomla fans from all over Germany came to celebrate this event, exchange experiences and just have fun among friends. What made this day even more special for YOOtheme was that we had the opportunity to be a silver sponsor again, and two of our colleagues delivered presentations! Besides that, we got to meet old friends and to make new ones.
If you could not make it to this year's JoomlaDay Germany, don't worry, you can see the presentations below. Mind that there are English subtitles for both videos. To enable them, just click on Settings -> Subtitles, and chose Auto-translate.
