Yootheme Horizon

Yootheme Horizon Template for Joomla 3.x

This month’s website, Yootheme Horizon, comes with an elegant and clean style. It works brilliantly with product pages or software company websites. The newly added box shadows provide more depth for the overall appearance. Choose from 8 different prebuilt layouts: Frontpage, Products, Specs, Overview, Services, Company, Pricing and News.

  • New Material style
  • 8 Layouts for different page types
  • Product and business topic

New Material style

Today’s release includes the new Material style. Thanks to the modularity of YOOtheme Pro it can be used not only with Yootheme Horizon but also with Fuse and any future website. The new style is clean, elegant and lightweight, featuring colored details and UI elements. We introduced a number of new style options to give you more flexibility. All these options can also be applied to the Minimal style of Fuse theme.


YOOtheme Pro now employs so-called modes for different components that allow you to change global aspects of your theme’s styling in one click. In this case you can switch through different border modes, for example to style forms. Apply a top, bottom, left, right or full border by selecting one of the available options.

Border Modes

Box Shadow

The style customizer includes a box-shadow picker. With this you can customize every aspect of an element’s shadow. Enter values for offset, blur and spread, enable inset mode and pick the shadow’s color and opacity.


Navbar item line

Another handy new addition allows you to add and style a decorative line that can be positioned at the top or bottom of navbar items. Enable Slide Mode, so that an animation will be applied to the follower when you hover different menu items.

Some improvements have also been made in the default theme’s typography settings. All Google fonts your style is using are automatically displayed at the bottom of the Style panel.

Improved Sorting

The new style customizer already was a big step forward. Nevertheless, we are continuing to improve its structure. Variables are grouped by modifier, then ordered semantically – for example modes like hover and active stay together – and alphabetically. This will help you to quickly find anything you want to modify in your style.


Take the button component for example. First of all, you can see general variables that apply to all buttons ordered alphabetically, followed by the groups Default, Primary, Secondary etc. At the bottom of each of these groups you will find hover and active states bundled together (if they exist).

Inverse Component

The Style customizer now features all variables of the Inverse component. This allows you to display components on all backgrounds. Take the Card component, for example. The Primary and Secondary modifiers allow you to select a color mode, so when using a dark background you can switch to light mode and the card’s content will adapt accordingly. This is done through the Inverse component, the place where you modify the appearance of elements that you want to invert for contrasting backgrounds.


The global Color Mode select field lets you determine, whether light or dark mode is used, depending on the style. Light styles should apply light colors on dark backgrounds, as elements are usually dark by default, and vice versa.

Apart from all this, you will also notice that the performance of the Style customizer has improved dramatically, so that loading times have decreased by as much as 70%.

New Theme Features

Just like Fuse, the new website Yootheme Horizon is built on our first default YOOtheme Pro theme. During the last few weeks we have relased several updates with improvements and bug fixes.


For better handling we’ve moved the image settings of each position into a separate panel. Instead of a bunch of options automatically appearing when you select an image as your position’s background style, there’s now an Edit Settings button that leads you to these options.

Module Options

Modules in Joomla feature an additional Template tab. Here you can adjust a module’s style, text alignment and width, which now can also be 100%. This enables you to stack multiple modules within one position.



The YOOtheme Pro Builder also features a couple of new options and settings (present in Yootheme Horizon template)

Grid element

The element library has grown by a new item to create a grid. That way you can easily align content in columns next to each other.

Section Width

The Width option of the Section panel has also been expanded. Now you can apply the Default, Small, Expand and Full, but also Large width, which is currently at 1600px.


Grid Options

Builder settings for the grid inside a Row have been enhanced, too. Auto/Expand widths have been refactored to contain one grid item with a fixed width and the others expanding to fill the remaining space. This leaves you with the Fixed-Left, Fixed-Right, Fixed-Inner and Fixed-Outer layouts. The cell’s width can be set directly in the Row panel.

Grid Options

Divider Small

The Divider Element now comes with the additional Small style. It displays a shorter line that can be aligned to the left, right or center of the container.


New Icons

The icon element already comes with a comprehensive set of elegant line icons, which we will keep expanding in the future. With the Horizon website, four new icons find their way into the collection: plus-circle, minus-circle, play and play-circle.

New Icons

Widgetkit 2

A much demanded feature was the compatibility of YOOtheme Pro and Widgetkit 2. Up until now this wasn’t possible, because YOOtheme Pro and Widgetkit are utilizing different versions of our frontend framework UIkit. However, with this release, we have applied a noconflict mode that prevents issues previously arising from these different versions. So now you can use both in the same installation and add widgets, like a Slideshow, to your modules/widgets and articles. Note, that this is only a preliminary solution. In the future, all Widgetkit features will be fully integrated with the builder. Also be aware that, since different versions of UIkit are being loaded, your theme’s style won’t affect Widgetkit. It always applies the default UIkit 2 style to its widgets.

How to update

If you have installed Fuse before, you can simply update the theme from the Joomla backend, making use of the easy 1-click updates that YOOtheme Pro has introduced. Your website will look the same in the front end, but you have all improvements available in the website builder. Additionally, the update will add the new Material style to your theme. Go to the style customizer and select a style to display your website in a whole new look.

If you have not installed Fuse before, or want to start fresh, the recommended way to install is using a prepared demo package. It will include a number of demo pages for you to get started right away.

Wrapping Up

A lot of bugs were fixed and the creation of child themes has been optimized – for example, you can add your own custom.css file. In the future we will continue to improve YOOtheme Pro and the Default theme and add more and more features and styles to it. Thanks to the modular concept of YOOtheme Pro, all innovations will be applicable to past and future websites.

As usual, we are eager to hear your feedback. Be sure to let us know what you think and post any features you are missing in the support area.
