A new update is available for Motortrend - Responsive Xenforo Automotive Car & Motorcycle Theme by Nulumia.


Motortrend - Responsive Xenforo Automotive Car & Motorcycle Theme 2.2.1.0 Beta 1

Update highlights

To update your theme, please download the latest version at:
https://www.nulumia.com/shop/my-downloads/

Upgrading from last previous version
  • XML import AND file upload
Files changed since last previous version
  • /nulumia/js/theme-functions.js

Overview

This update introduces the first change from the Slick slider framework used so far in Nulumia themes, to the bundled LightSlider framework within Xenforo. This has been a long-planned change going forward on Xenforo 2.2, although Slick will still be retained in Nulumia themes as a fallback for several versions.

The Logo Icon & Featured Content carousels are now running on LightSlider, however this migration will soon make its way to all Nulumia theme features - including the Slideshow, product pages, and addons.

As Nulumia themes have supported using Slick for custom content sliders (using the provided macros), these features will continue to run until Slick is fully removed.

This change to LightSlider will provide cleaner, faster themes - both in real use, and in import & install!

Check out the details at:


Complete Change Log

  • Framework
    • Updated to Xenforo 2.2.1, merged all templates
    • Updated modified templates to use latest Xenforo versions
    • Updated to Nulumia Framework 2.4.1 Beta 1
  • Misc Improvements
    • Added improved cache busting to the nulumia/theme-functions.js file, to ensure latest changes are seen by visitors as more improvements are added to carousel functionality
  • Carousels
    • Migrated Nulumia theme carousels to Xenforo's native LightSlider module. All Nulumia themes will utilize LightSlider moving forward, while Slick will be retained as a legacy fallback for several additional versions.
    • Fixed a bug where carousel content/slides would flash in before CSS rendering, causing a momentary breakage in page layout. Issue:
      Motortrend - Bug Report Featured Content carousel loading issues
      Due to some of the recent optimizations, the Featured Content carousel/widgets may load in before proper CSS styling is in place, causing a flash in layout change. Preventative measures will be added to ensure featured content is hidden in all cases until styling is present.
      www.nulumia.com
    • Added new Style Properties for arrow directional controls in the Featured Content Slider, can now override default arrow styling for general carousels
    • Adjusted styling of arrow controls and dot pager in most themes
    • Moved carousel Javascript handling to the nulumia/theme-functions.js file, is no longer embedded in page HTML

A few questions on this theme please, couldn't identify answers within the Documentation or Live Demo ...
  • Can the secondary/sub navigation (eg. 'New Posts' underneath 'Forums') be always displayed? (Instead of having to click on the primary navigation to reveal the sub-navigation options)
  • What's the best way to demo the style for mobile/tablet viewports? Does the Live Demo have an option, or should use browser developer options?
  • Is there an option for different(smaller) logo between desktop and tablet/mobile view ports?
  • Can icons be used to add/replace to the primary navigation? Can they be used for sub-navigation too? If so, can you distinguish the option for this between desktop and off-canvas tablet/mobile menus?
Thanks.

Motortrend - Responsive Xenforo Automotive Car & Motorcycle Theme 2.2.1.4

Update highlights

To update your theme, please download the latest version at:
https://www.nulumia.com/shop/my-downloads/

Upgrading from last previous version
  • XML import only
Overview

This update further focuses on the forum & node list, by heavily improving the included Node Grid feature. The new grid system was rewritten with improved Flexbox HTML, and handles much better on various screen sizes and when compacted to smaller layouts. Additionally, the fluid & fixed width nodes option now handles equally well - as previously, the fluid option was recommended to prevent visual bugs in certain browsers.

While all existing themes will ship with the fluid-width Node Grid in place, the fixed-width layout will be the preferred mode in all new themes.

Additionally, updated compatibility with TH Nodes addon has been tested. In the case of using this addon, it is still recommended to disable the included Node Grid in Nulumia themes (or vice versa) as your preferred choice.

The Rich Text Editor has also received improvements:



If you are an existing license holder, keep an eye on your notifications for when you can download your new theme update.


Complete Change Log

  • Framework
    • Further optimization of template customizations
    • Heavily reduced the amount of CSS normally loaded with all themes. Feature specific CSS is now loaded much more efficiently when features are being used, saving on page size and load times
  • Misc Improvements
    • Minor bug fixes
  • Node/forum list
    • Overhauled the included Node Grid and Node Background features with heavily improved markup (reduced HTML, CSS, etc)
    • New Node Grid handles much better on smaller devices, with less browser specific bugs such as breaking out of containers, text overflow, etc
    • The fixed (non-fluid) Node Grid is now much better supported, with consistent behavior and appearance across all browsers (previously, stretch/fluid width nodes was recommended)
    • The Node Grid now has additional Style Properties for controlling node minimum widths, max widths, etc
    • All themes now use accents to define sticky threads from normal threads (appearance differs by theme)
    • Fixed a bug which could cause nodes in the Node Grid to appear incorrectly when using sub-forums
  • Messages
    • Improvements have been made to the Rich Text Editor in most themes
  • Addon related
    • Further improved prevention of a bug that would cause media widgets to not display in certain conditions, this bug should be fully squashed
    • Updated compatibility with TH Nodes addon. While disabling TH Nodes or the included free Node Grid over the preferred choice is recommended, fallbacks remain in place in case both features are enabled at the same time. This however should be avoided.

Motortrend - Responsive Xenforo Automotive Car & Motorcycle Theme 2.2.2.1 Beta 1

Update highlights

To update your theme, please download the latest version at:
https://www.nulumia.com/shop/my-downloads/

Upgrading from last previous version
  • XML import only
Overview

This is a Beta release containing some new features to the header & navigation. This is not a recommended or critical update, so please read the changelog or relevant discussion threads before installing this version. Included changes will be rolled out with improvements, and across other Nulumia themes, with ongoing feedback.

This release adds a new setting to combine the navigation and sub-navigation elements into one single element, which can be useful in applying shared styling (such as background color or image). This setting can also work with the Nulumia Compact Header, or the default Xenforo header (logo placed above the nav).

Further, the Compact Header can now be showed to either all visitors, or logged-in or logged-out visitors specifically.

It is recommended to import this beta theme first as a standalone theme alongside your master theme, not overwriting it. This way, you can experiment with changes first before overwriting your master theme.

In case of encountering issues after overwriting your master theme, it is safe to roll-back by re-importing the last stable version.

For questions, feel free to reply in the theme Discussion Thread or via Support Ticket.


Complete Change Log

  • Misc Improvements
    • Various code cleanup and improvements
    • Relabeled some custom Style Properties and descriptions
    • Optimizations to the PAGE_CONTAINER template
  • Header & Navigation
    • Added new feature to combine the navigation & sub-navigation rows into one element. Useful for applying shared background styling across both rows (available via [Nulumia] Header & Navigation Settings property group. Scroll to bottom of settings under new "Beta features" heading)
    • Added new setting to show the Compact Header whether the user is logged in or not, or to all visitors
  • Addon Related
    • Updated customized templates to latest version of Xenforo Media Gallery

A new update is available for Motortrend - Responsive Xenforo Automotive Car & Motorcycle Theme by Nulumia.


Motortrend - Responsive Xenforo Automotive Car & Motorcycle Theme 2.2.3.0

Update highlights

To update your theme, please download the latest version at:
https://www.nulumia.com/shop/my-downloads/

Upgrading from last previous version
  • XML import AND file upload
Files changed
  • js/nulumia/theme-functions.js
  • js/nulumia/theme-functions.min.js
  • js/nulumia/lightslider.js
  • js/nulumia/lightslider.min.js

Overview

This release brings numerous bug fixes and improvements, along with update to Xenforo 2.2.3. Notably, an issue in some themes which could cause XFMG media widgets to not display has been fully ironed out. Improvements were made to message & conversation views, along with new style compatibility for third-party addons.

Motortrend changes

The sub-navigation links have been correctly changed back to displaying in dropdowns, rather than displaying the sub-navigation. This was incorrectly changed in a recent version. You can set this option via the [Nulumia] Header & Navigation property group.

Also, a very minor change was made to the red accent icon above the Featured Carousel default title, to work with the new slider.

If you've customized the Inline CSS field for the Featured Carousel, you should search for this entry and change to the following:
Less:
 .title-content h4:before {
     content: "";
     display: block;
     width: 22px;
     height: 18px;
     background: url(@xf-themePath/xenforo/skin/heading-sprite.png);
     margin: 0 auto 6px;
}
**NOTICE - SLICK SLIDER IS NOW FULLY DEPRECATED **

Check out the full details here:



Complete Change Log

Changelog

Framework 2.4.2

  • Framework Changes
    • Updated to Xenforo 2.2.3 compatibility, merged all templates
    • Added minified theme-functions.js for smaller file size
    • Added a new universal carousel init JS file, which can be called to convert any element of content into a Lightslider carousel. This method will replace the legacy 'nl_slick_init_macros' method. Stay tuned for further tutorials on using this method
    • Various page loading optimizations
  • Miscellaneous Improvements
    • Further optimization of templates
    • Improved styling of block filter bars on certain pages
    • Removed numerous custom CSS templates from loading in all instances, reducing page file size. Now custom CSS templates are called only in instances needed
    • Fixed a bug where the container element for articles or spaced-apart messages would have a drop shadow during the Floating Content layout
    • Reworked the content drop shadow system. Previously, drop shadows for popup elements (menus, overlays, tooltips etc) shared either the same drop shadows as the Content Drop Shadows specified in the [Nulumia] UX Settings group, or were hard-coded via CSS. You will now find a new option to use custom drop shadows for all popup-based elements, allowing for different shadow styles than on-page content. This is helpful when preferring different colors or opacities for shadows between the two.
    • You can now enable or disable drop shadows for content elements, and popup elements separately. For example, this allows for disabling content element shadows, but retaining drop shadows for menus and other popup types.
    • Cleaned all hard-coded or style property based drop shadows from all elements, to utilize the new system
    • Added drop shadows to many elements from third-party addons
  • Header & Navigation
    • Fixed a bug in previous versions which would effect styling of the sub-navigation row under certain header configurations
    • Removed all hard-coded alignment of the sub-navigation, in order to use the new alignment setting in the [Nulumia] Header & Navigation property group
    • Improved slide-out menu icon styling in some themes
    • Fixed a bug due to earlier versions which would cause the responsive/collapsed nav from inheriting its styling
    • Made the alignment of the sub-navigation when using the Compact Header default to right aligned, changed property label to reflect this change
  • Carousels
    • Added further fixes into many themes which will prevent a bug where XFMG media sliders don't function
    • Deprecated now legacy Slick framework from all themes. If you have custom content on your site that uses the built-in Nulumia slick bundle, you should migrate your content to use Xenforo's built in Lightslider module
    • Added a new setting to control whether the featured and icon carousels are shown to admins at all times (previously default behavior)
    • Improved handling of padding in the featured and logo icon carousels. When using the "floating" layout vs "block", carousels will no longer be inset from the page width.

  • Discussion Grid
    • Fixed a bug where the Discussion grid trigger wouldn't be hidden on mobile / under the minimum allowed width

    • Fixed a bug where the post author user fields container would still appear, even when there are no fields to display
    • Added matching styling for the post author online indicator in many themes

    • Fixed a bug where widgets within the footer would have drop shadows

    • Removed or reverted many unnecessary customized templates or style properties, for DragonByte Tech eCommerce, which are no longer needed in favor of the Responsive Product Grids for DragonByte eCommerce addon. This addon is now recommended for all Nulumia themes.
    • Improved style compatibility with 8WayRun XenMedio
    • Updated customized templates for DragonByte Tech eCommerce to the latest versions
    • Converted the product image & thumbnail slider on product pages from Slick framework to Xenforo's Lightslider
    • Moved all DragonByte Tech related style properties and settings from the [Nulumia] Addon Compatibility group to the DragonByte Tech eCommerce group
    • Added numerous new style properties & settings for product pages, such as controlling layout of the product images slider
