Nic & Em Theme – June 2016 YOOtheme club theme
Love is in the air this June and the first summer breeze brings along Nic & Em, our newest release. This wedding themed template stands out with its vertically split layout, new module/widget positions, a bunch of handy features and four custom Widgetkit plugins! It provides the perfect base for couples to plan their wedding and present photos and memories afterwards. But its versatility and different styles make Nic & Em great for any event website, portfolio or other content.
Nic & Em theme comes with the additional Aside position. That's what forms the distinguishing two column layout of this theme. Modules/widgets you publish here will be displayed on the left side of the screen, while the remaining content stays on the right. On resolutions below 1366px it will automatically move to a teaser position at the top of the browser to save valuable space.
The Aside position has a couple of custom settings that you can adjust in the Warp administration. Its width can vary between 25% and 50% and it can be positioned on the left or right side of the content. Set a background color, image and an overlay and combine these with different blend modes, opacity settings and a contrast color option, so that typographic elements look good on dark backgrounds. The entire appearance is up to you.
An article's title and meta data will also be rendered in the Aside position, if the option is enabled. In single view, the featured image of each blog item will automatically appear there.
A number of block appearance settings are also available for the other positions. You can set a background color, image, blend modes and opacity with a contrast option. The content of each block can have different paddings, widths, full viewport height and if this isn't enough, you can also add your own class.
Nic & Em uses Widgetkit 2 to render some of its content. In addition to the large number of default widget plugins, this theme provides a custom Grid Stack, two special Slideshows and an Event widget.
The custom Grid Stack widget comes with the additional option to set a watermark image for each item. Just type in your text in the Watermark field of your widget's content administration and it will be displayed discreetly in the background of your item as a nice typographical detail. All default Grid Stack settings are still available in this renderer.
Nic & Em theme comes with two custom Slideshows. The first one features a tabbed navigation that is placed above the Slideshow. The title of each item is used to switch through the content. Title and content are rendered inside a panel that overlays the media, while a custom style with an animated underline on hover can be applied to the link.
The second Slideshow comes with a custom slidenav that can be positioned at the top left, top right, bottom left or bottom right of the Slideshow. A counter displays the number of items as well as the active item. The regular Slideshow features are available as well.
The Event widget is perfect to create a list of events, which can be filtered by date. You can enter a date and time and even a location in the Content tab of the widget administration. The event location will then be displayed in a link that opens up a map in the same tab or optionally inside a new one.
Apart from these major features Nic & Em theme comes with lots of helpers and gimmicks that make this one special.
The additional Pageloader module/widget position allows you to create custom markup that will then be displayed on any page that it is published on, while the site is in the process of loading.
Another gimmick is the fullscreen search of this theme. Instead of the usual input, this will open an overlay with a large search field, when you click the magnifier icon.
Nic & Em theme comes with 6 style presets to show you the possibilities that it offers. A more detailed overview of the theme's features and a full list of available custom classes can be found on the Theme page. An FAQ will soon be available and you can find answers to questions that are not addressed there in our support area.
