NulumiaBase Framework v1.7 is here! NulumiaBase is the powerful theme framework which powers all styles available at the Nulumia.com shop. Version 1.7 is the largest release yet since the original 1.5 overhaul, and brings hundreds of new changes, bug fixes and enhancements.

While not vastly feature heavy, NulumiaBase 1.7 is all about consistency, uniformity, and polish.
This release focuses heavily on streamlining the Xenforo appearance -- virtually no small corner, tab or menu has been left untouched -- bringing much greater consistency to your forum when using a Nulumia style.

In addition, 1.7 does bring several new features, including FontAwesome Rich Text Editor, full style support for the Xenforo Resource Manager, Side by Side Node style improvements, and improved mobile message layouts!

A reminder on upgrading..

As always, you should install your theme in a parent-child configuration to safely receive upgrades. Never overwrite your only existing copy of your style, unless you absolutely know what you are doing!

In order to place your theme in a parent-child configuration, install the theme as normal, then deactivate it from user selection. Next, create a new child-style with your original theme as the parent. Then, make all customizations in your child-style, and set it to user selection. Only ever upgrade your hidden, parent style during upgrades.
