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.

Helios Theme is packed to burst with useful features and neat little details. The Header position will automatically turn a widget/module that is published there into a fullscreen header. Additionally the theme offers a mouse following gradient stalker as an eye-catching effect. The main navigation features the option to apply a centered full width dropdown and can also be set fixed, so that it will remain at the top of the window while you scroll the site.

All section blocks provide lots of options to further individualize your site. You can apply different backgrounds, textures, paddings and adjust the container width. To give you more flexibility, we also added a new panel and another subnav style.

The 6 styles bring a lot of variety to the theme, changing between a more skeuomorphic to a completely flat design throughout the different presets. Of course, Helios also features a special blog style that uses the featured image with an overlay as a teaser for your articles.

  • Fixed main menu
  • Centered dropdown menu
  • Automatic hero header position
  • Eye-catching gradient stalker
  • Multiple block styles
  • Additional layout positions
  • New demo pages built with Widgetkit 2
  • Full UIkit components styling
  • 6 pre-built style variations
  • Easy customizer and LESS integration
  • WooCommerce support

    Yoothemes must of been reading my mind, because I wanted this type of nav drop down.

    However Id like to see more than 4 columns supported.

      Now that I think of it, is the little up arrow always centered? is there a setting to make it move under the parent menu?

      We've deactivated the stalker in the yoo_helios/styles/orange/custom.css.
      Just remove these lines ;)
      /* Hide stalker */
      .tm-block-header.tm-contrast .tm-stalker { display: none; }

    Yesterday I found a support thread to get that arrow down on the front page and today's new template has one. Great timing. It's really super needed because so many people don't get to scroll down for more content. The template looks more extensible than anything so far.

    This a is a beautiful template. I'm definitely using this one for my upcoming project. However, viewing the demo on my Surface Pro 3 tablet adds a horizontal scroll to the front page.

    As many have said, this is a beautiful template. In my view, the most recent template have all been beautiful. That said, I'd like to see Yoo err toward the functional side soon. New sites (high content), law firms, manufacturing, recreational, etc. companies need more than beautiful. That's my opinion. Keep up the good work.

    Nice.
    But why warp (Uikit) does not support "List All Categories" article layout? If I need to use the "List All Categories" article layout for joomla, Bootstrap must be loaded before they can make the page work correctly.

    Very useful template. However, has anyone viewed this on an iPhone (4, 5)? It doesn't work very well at all. I wouldn't be able to use this on any project unless it performed well at least on the most popular devices.
