Warp 6 Templates

New YooTheme Framework for Joomla & Wordpress

The much anticipated Warp 6 Framework for Joomla and Wordpress from YooTheme is now available. The completely new system is based in {yootooltip title=[HTML5]}Latest revision of the HTML standard, currently in development. Intended to subsume HTML4, XHTML and Java Script. In April 2010, Apple CEO Steve Jobs suggested that HTML5 makes Flash obsolete.{/yootooltip} that enables developers to have greater control over theme creation, enabling developers like The Microtechs to produce much more uniquely branded websites. On top of it all, the framework moves Joomla to the frontline of web development technology, making cross-platform struggles obsolete.

HTML5 Based
The template markup is now completely HTML5 based and we updated the entire WordPress, Joomla 1.5 and 1.6 system markup which is now also rewritten in HTML5. We also use a lot of CSS3 and CSS 2.1 selectors which we couldn't use back in the days when we supported IE6. Now let's take a closer look at the details of the newly polished markup.

Style Control
Presently, and with all of our 2011 and 2010 Clients, we use a special plugin that allows us to assign a different template to certain areas of a website that go beyond typical menu items. This means for a gallery or media section, for instance, we can style the look of the website differently.

The new Warp 6 framework has built-in features that allow you to manage multiple template variations of one single install.

Combinable Styles

Mobile Theme
So what is a mobile theme? A mobile theme provides the general look and feel of a mobile device's user interface, so you'll get the best browsing experience on the go. Warp6 supports all mobile browsers which use the WebKit engine like the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and Google Android devices!

The mobile theme layout is clean and slick using all the goodies of HTML5 and CSS3. You won't find any unnecessary images or bloated markup. Thanks to CSS3 - all is done with web gradients, box-shadow and all the other cool toys that CSS3 brings into play. For example we make use of the hardware accelerated CSS3 animations for all our nifty effects. No JavaScript effects anymore - this guarantees fast and smooth animations. So you'll get not only a nice interface but also a mobile optimized layout with a compact size.
