Browser Support

The following list displays browser versions that YOOtheme Pro has been tested on. "Latest" means that it works just fine on all recent versions of that browser. With many browsers moving towards a rolling release strategy, pinning down browser support to a specific version has become a little tricky in recent years. Long story short, YOOtheme Pro will work on pretty much any modern browser.













The UIkit Framework

YOOtheme Pro is based on the front-end framework UIkit. This means HTML written in YOOtheme Pro, like the page layouts, is using classes and attributes from UIkit. They are prefixed with uk- so that they can easily be identified. The style customizer allows you to modify the UIkit CSS inside YOOtheme Pro. Meanwhile, elements in the builder are based on UIkit components, like the Slideshow element which is built on the Slideshow component.

All UIkit features are available when writing custom markup or starting child theme development for YOOtheme Pro. There is also a comprehensive documentation for UIkit. It could be regarded as a more technical extension of the YOOtheme Pro documentation.
