Creative Hub Theme for YOOtheme Pro

Let's welcome our new theme package for YOOtheme Pro – Creative Hub. It is a company directory filled with 135+ demo posts. Creative Hub showcases companies in well structured grids styled as cards. In addition, linear text gradients give the site a playful, vivid look. With its modern, material style, vibrant colors and thick typography, Creative Hub is a versatile theme, perfect for agencies, portfolios or any other creative business websites. Let's dive in.

Page Layouts

Creative Hub is a company directory website which comes with 10 different layouts. The companies styled as cards on muted sections are grouped in three-column grids with two-column grids used to emphasize featured companies. Additionally, the subnav used on all category pages ensures easy navigation between categories both for companies and news. This gives Creative Hub a clean, organized look while a newsletter sign-up as well as a call to action draw attention of the site visitors.

Mind that the Company Index template is not listed here and is not available in the layout library because it's a copy of the Company Category template with slightly different content.

Styles

Our new theme has a material style with box shadows and vivid colors. Multicolored gradients on headings, primary cards and buttons are complemented by a darker secondary color and give the site a playful, exciting look. Rounded buttons and thick headlines contrast with edged borders and thin text typography. This all makes Creative Hub a perfect fit for a creative business website.

Default Style

In addition to the default style, Creative Hub comes with 5 other style variations, each with a different beautiful color scheme. With a bright primary color with vibrant gradients, and in some style variations a colorful secondary color, Creative Hub will definitely add some summer feeling to any site. Just choose the one that fits your website best.

Content Types and Custom Fields

Creative Hub comes with pages and templates for companies filled with 135+ demo posts. In Joomla this content type is created by assigning custom fields to the Companies category, which in WordPress Company custom post type is used.

Companies

Companies are organized in a one-level category hierarchy. There are 111 companies sorted into 5 categories: Full-Service, Design, Development, E-Commerce and Marketing. The company category has no custom fields.

The company post type has 12 custom fields which are dynamically mapped into category and single post templates.

Magazine

Creative Hub also has templated magazine posts grouped into 4 categories: News, Inspiration, Events and Interviews. The magazine category has no additional custom fields. However, we added two custom fields for the user in Joomla: Image and Image Alt text grouped under Author field group. In WordPress the default profile picture is used.

User Field Type (J!) Description

Image Alt Text text User image alt text

By the way, the default post type in WordPress received another custom field that shows the intro image in the blog overview.

Important Notes

Currently the Creative Hub layouts are not available in the layout library. This is because their content is loaded dynamically, and most of the mapped custom fields, content sources or handpicked articles and categories will not be available in your installation. The layouts will be released together with YOOtheme Pro 2.1 next week. The beta is coming today.
