Overview

This release brings compatibility with Xenforo 2.1.6, and updates many templates to latest versions. There are also numerous small bugfixes and UI improvements, including much deeper support for subforums and subcategories in the Node Grid feature. Nulumia themes are also much more compatible with the latest version of TH Nodes grid. Additional UI tweaks have been made to member profiles and tooltip popups, with subtle new enhancements for checkboxes on various forms.

Versioning Change

In all future releases, Nulumia theme versions will now match their corresponding version of Xenforo, followed by an additional digit for smaller updates.

Example:
Xenforo: 2.2.0
ThemeName: 2.2.0.0

The final number will represent theme updates (0-15) within the current version of Xenforo, such as maintenance and feature patches. This will allow up to 15 updates to a given theme before the next released version of Xenforo.

MAJOR XF 2.1.3 & 2.1.4 RELEASE | PLEASE READ NOTES CAREFULLY

Overview


This release includes the first official update for Xenforo 2.1.3+, bringing huge new theme code improvements, overhauls, and feature tweaks.

Most of the Nulumia theme framework has been rewritten, by as much as 70% for new efficiency, stability and ease of updates. For example, most custom code has been moved out of Xenforo templates to allow much easier template merging after updates.

Further, starting in Xenforo 2.1.3+ all Nulumia themes will use an overhauled Color Palette for easier customization.

New Color Palette | Existing Users Please Read

The new Color Palette used by Nulumia themes has been greatly simplified and made more intuitive, with less overlap and confusion with standard Xenforo colors. All theme features now use default Xenforo Basic Colors where possible, instead of using custom properties.

Custom property changes:
  • The nlPrimaryAltX range has been changed to the paletteColorX range
  • Since Xenforo only supplies six colors in the paletteColorX range, it has been expanded to eight colors
  • The nlNeutralAltX range has been changed to new neutralLightX and neutralDarkX ranges
  • The nlElementX range has been renamed to elementX range
These custom colors have been deprecated but will be found in the [Nulumia] Helper Settings property group for several more updates.

Because of this new Color Palette system, themes with heavy customizations may show incorrect styling after upgrade, in cases where you've selected the outdated properties. These can be fixed by locating these properties and selecting the new colors, or by reverting your changes.

Please contact via reply, PM, or support ticket for help!

Specify Custom Gradients!




You can now specify custom gradients within Basic Colors, and easily reference them via Style Properties or LESS templates with the following codes:
  • .m-primaryGradient();
  • .m-secondaryGradient();
  • .m-lightGradient();
  • .m-darkGradient();
Floating Slider Captions With Animations

Note from the author: Thanks for all theme members waiting on this update! It has taken a considerable amount of work addressing as many feature requests as possible to meet this update, while also revising the theme framework for better updates moving forward!

Overview

This is a major new release and brings Simplicitye to full compatibility with XF 2.1 Official. Further, this update represents roughly 3-4 patches worth of changes which I have been prepping since XF 2.0.10.

Roughly 70-80% of my theme framework has been rewritten and tweaked, not only tightly integrating with XF2.1 but laying the foundation for more advanced updates and features.

Highlights

New Header Layouts

Simplicity has been re-touched top to bottom with a fresh clean new style

new-ui.jpg


New Header Layouts
The new theme allows much greater flexibility over the header, including a new combined title & breadcrumb row below the navigation. This is a common feature on many Wordpress sites.

header1.jpg


You can also switch each section of the header to fixed vs stretch separately.
Style Properties -> [Nulumia] Header & navigation property group

New Compact Header
You can now change to a compact header layout, which combines the logo & navigation together. This can help save vertical space and create a more streamlined look!
Style Properties -> [Nulumia] Header & navigation property group

Xenforo Media Gallery Features
You can now set max gallery items per row (fully responsive) and display item captions below thumbnails!

Captions below media items:

Add up to 6 items per row:

Dragonbyte Tech Ecommerce Layouts
Awesome new grid styling for store layouts

Product page detail with scrolling thumbnails (choose from left side or under featured product image)

Full RTL Support
I have completely reworked my themes for extensive RTL support. Care was taken to make sure all custom features and sidebar settings are compatible.

Hide Sub-Navigation Links
You can now hide the sub-nav links and add them back to the parent nav tab instead, such as found on most any platform other than Xenforo. This can be used to help mask the classic "Xenforo look".
Style Properties -> [Nulumia] Header & navigation property group

New Social Icons System
There's now a much easier social icons feature -- select from up to 13 preset social media sites and the theme will display the icons for you, no more hunting for FontAwesome codes! Further, you can now select up to three different icon styles -- XF default, custom, and brand colors, which use matching colors for each social media site. Even more, you can specify different icon styling depending on location!
Style Properties -> [Nulumia] Social settings property group



Tight XF2 Integration
All Nulumia features such as slide show, logo carousel etc, now use Xenforo's macro system for better efficiency and extensibility. This will help enhance features over further patches.

JS Bugfixes
Several important Jquery bugs, some related to conflicts with iframes and external snippets have been solved.

Set Sidebar Position by Page
You can now specify sidebar left/right depending on different pages!
Style Properties -> [Nulumia] Sidebar settings property group

New Hooks System
If you've ran a Wordpress site before, you may be familiar with hooks. Basically, there's locations within the template that allow you to insert custom code on the fly, without having to edit core templates. I will be adding documentation soon for using the new hooks system.

Page Node Customization Options
The latest framework includes a custom options set for customizing HTML/node pages on the fly, without having to create special page_container templates. You can now do things like hide/show the title, breadcrumb, sidebar & notices, set page background color or image, change padding, etc.

I will be adding documentation on this soon.

Custom Contact Us Page & Inline forms
Two cool new features, the theme now comes packaged with a starter custom Contact page which you can edit with your own HTML, rather than editing core templates. You can also choose between using inline-forms, with labels above text fields instead of the side-by-side XF2 form style.

You can edit the new custom page at:
Templates -> nl_contact_page_wrapper

Addon Compatibility
As always, I am adding full style compatibility with as many new XF2.1 addons as possible and will be adding much more over coming updates.

Upcoming Page Builder framework
Just a sneak peak on this, but the theme does currently package a working version of my new CSS Page Builder framework, a Boostrap-like library to build awesome HTML home/portal pages.

January 12th, 2019 | Theme Version 1.1.0b

To update your theme, please download the latest version at:

https://www.nulumia.com/my-account/downloads/

Overview

This release includes the new beta theme which is compatible with XF2.1.0b. In the XML folder, you will now find an XF2.0 and XF2.1 folder containing the appropriate files.

** IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ **

Regarding the new beta theme:

  • This is a template-merge release only
    The 2.1 beta theme has been carefully merged with new XF2.1 templates and Style Properties. Thus, it does not bring any new features or improvements yet. The theme will be overhauled with the official public release of XF2.1.
  • There are known bugs
    There are a few small bugs, which are not theme-breaking, rather just small aesthetic issues which will be polished up.
  • There are limitations to features
    While mostly everything is intact from XF2.0.x, there may be a few Nulumia settings and options which may not work yet (or well) on 2.1. The default layouts provided in the XML's are tested and working great.
I am currently rewriting all themes for the official public release of XF2.1, which will bring major new features, style enhancements etc. As such, your theme will likely appear somewhat to drastically different when XF2.1 Official is released. However this will be a beneficial step, as I intend for every theme to take on a new polished look moving forward on 2.1.

Q: I haven't yet upgraded to XF2.1b. Should I upgrade to use this theme?
A:
Most likely, no. As this theme doesn't yet bring any new improvements, unless you have other reasons to upgrade to XF2.1b, you shouldn't do so for this theme release.

Q: I already upgraded to XF2.1b. Should I overwrite the previous version of this theme?
A:
In most cases, yes. If you've made only small customizations within your child/active style, it should be safe to just overwrite. If you've made many or heavy customizations to your 2.0.x theme over time, you may want to consider importing as a fresh new theme and remaking your changes. This is only because some new Templates and Style Properties are handled a bit differently in XF2.1, meaning some of your customizations may be out of date and need reverting.
Please PM me if you need advice!

Q: How will the theme change for XF2.1 Official?
A:
The new framework in development contains too many changes to list. However, it includes a huge new HTML Page Builder framework I've created, which is similar to Bootstrap :). Most of my themes are visually being redesigned from the ground up with new, sharp UI.

Q: Will you continue development of the 2.0.x theme?
A:
There is one more major release in development for XF2.0.x. Aside from bugfix or maintenance updates, further development will then only continue on XF2.1+.

Overview

This is a major release bringing Simplicity up to the latest NulumiaBase framework, bringing in tons of new features and a new preset! Simplicity now is updated to the latest Xenforo 2.0.9 version, with numerous bugfixes and improvements.

** Upgrade Notice **

The /js/nulumia/theme-functions.js file has been updated. Make sure to upload all files when upgrading your theme from a previous version.

New Feature - Node Grid & Custom Node Backgrounds!

xenforo-2-light-responsive-style-simplicity-theme-node-grid-flex-columns.jpg


A much requested feature from the XF1 edition, Node Grid & Custom Node Backgrounds mode is now available! Organize your forum listing into a responsive grid layout, and add background images or colors to each node selectively - included FREE.

Set images above or behind nodes:

xenforo-2-light-responsive-style-simplicity-theme-node-grid-flex-columns-2.jpg


Now with extensive compatibility with [TH] Node Grid addon

Already using [TH] Node grid layout? Nulumia themes are now deeply integrated with the popular plugin, giving you the option to choose between [TH] Node grid or your theme's built-in grid layout!

Q: Which is better / which should I use?
A: Since [TH] Node grid is a commercial plugin, it is technically a superior feature to the built-in node grid. It allows you to easily set images via your admin Forum manager, whereas the built-in feature requires you to edit a template to assign images. However, the built-in layout does offer most similar functionality.

Q: If I use the built-in grid layout, must I disable [TH] Node Grid for the rest of my themes?
A: No! Thanks to the per-style control settings offered in [TH] Node Grid, you can continue to use your plugin for other themes, while using the built-in features for your Nulumia theme only! Infact, this update adds so much compatibility, that accidentally leaving both enabled won't cause much issue!
