Overview

This update brings compatibility with the latest Xenforo 2.2.7 Patch Level 1. Further, the theme file structure in all themes has changed. It is important you must upload all files in your download package and overwrite if prompted.

Notice on One-Click Archive imports


This will be the final version before all Nulumia themes move to support importing via one-click archives. As such, you must still manually install/upgrade this theme by unzipping & uploading files, then importing the XML over your existing theme.

In the next version, you will have the option of downloading the archive format, or full file package which will include optional files, such as PSDs, readme.txt, etc.

Notice of changed file structure

In this version (2.2.7.1), the theme file structure has changed. You must upload all files for your theme to work correctly. Further, if you have referenced images or other files in the previous theme locatio, they will continue to work if you leave existing files present on your server.

When one-click archive support is added to next releases, all themes files will be located in the /data/styles/ directory. Additional details & instructions will be provided at that time if you wish to migrate custom files.

Now with support for the Xenforo asset system!

In recent versions, Xenforo added the new Asset system, which not only improves style installation and upgrades with one-click archive support, but also provides easy uploading of images within Style Properties.

To follow correct syntax in preparation of one-click archive support, all references in Nulumia themes to the @xf-themePath style property have been replaced with %ASSET%:style. Likewise, template references to {{ propery('themePath') }} have been replaced with {{ asset('style') }}.

Here's just some of the popular features which support instant uploads!

[Nulumia] Icon Slider:

It has no doubt been an inconvenience to manually upload images to the web and place their URLs for using these features. But no more! These and more upcoming features will now be as easy as possible to use.

Q: Where will files go using the new upload feature?
A: All uploaded files will be placed in the /data/ directory. Different features in Nulumia pro themes will be found in labeled sub-directories, to keep things tidy from other themes on your site:
  • /data/nl-background
  • /data/nl-carousel
  • /data/nl-slider
  • etc

You must upload all files when upgrading your theme to this version as files have changed.

Keep an eye on your notifications for when your theme is updated to the latest version.

This actually helped so much! Don't know how I didn't think of doing this before myself, but it looks soo much better with more space available for posts. Completely agree with this change.
