Release notes



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system, themes with heavy customizations may show incorrect styling after upgrade, in cases where you've selected the outdated properties.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!

Cleaner, Sharper UI

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!
