Section Post Type removed from Parallax and Flat Theme

The Themify Builder's popularity has been growing, thanks to the increasing number of positive feedbacks from users because of its simple drag & drop framework. With this in mind, we've decided to update our Parallax and Flat theme by removing the section post type, and enable the users to use the Builder to customize pages and posts. This was done to avoid confusion, allow users more frontend page editing, and make everything integrated with our simple 'drag and drop' Builder. In addition to this, we have also updated our Parallax documentation page and created a video tutorial to show users how they can recreate many of the custom designs on the Parallax homepage with shortcodes. Now everyone can take advantage of our simple and easy-to-use drag & drop Builder with our Parallax and Flat theme on all their pages.

Note: To provide backward compatibility, the Section posts and the Query Sections pages will remain functional if your site has existing Section posts for both the Parallax and Flat themes. It is now easier to build the parallax scrolling pages with the Builder by following this tutorial.

New Music Theme + Framework Redesign + Sale!

Exciting news from the Themify camp: we'd like to introduce Music, a theme with artists, musicians, managers, and app developers in mind. Responsive and retina ready, Music introduces fullwidth video backgrounds, embedded music players, and a slick design right out of the box.

In addition, we've been working on some behind-the-scenes projects in tandem with the Music theme: Builder and Themify panels have been completely redesigned, now including a Customize panel which allows for customization of the theme with a live preview from the frontend! Builder is also coming with new features like the aforementioned fullwidth video background, pre-designed Layouts, and a new feature called Layout Parts.

Music Theme

Music is a theme that brings art to life. Built for artists, musicians, and anything related to music, Music is responsive and retina ready out of the box. We've jam-packed it full of much-requested features (like fullwidth video backgrounds) and made the Builder more powerful to make it even easier to create truly unique and beautiful websites.

Themify Panel Redesigned

While developing Music, we wanted to improve the user experience of using and customizing your Themify themes. We've completely redesigned the Themify panel into a flat design with a cleaner interface, and increased the overall font size for better readability. In addition, we've made the panel completely responsive to work on any sized screens, and replaced all graphic images with Themify Icons font to increase load speeds and make less HTTP requests.

Builder Interface Redesigned

Not wanting to stop at just the Themify panel, we also redesigned the Builder interface. On a module hover, Builder now indicates what module is in use, and we minimized the interface borders and strokes to provide a more accurate preview of what you were designing.

New Customize Panel

Giving our users even more power, we built a new Customize panel that allows the customization of theme elements and options with live frontend previews. You can select over 600+ Google fonts, use the color picker with opacity support, upload background images, set padding/margins/borders, write custom CSS, and much more.

In addition, you can easily set menu navigation, set the widebar widgets, and change the front page option. Watch the video below to see it in action.

Two days ago, we've released the Announcement Bar plugin and introduced the new Master Club. Today we have an awesome freebie for you!

Please say hello to our first free plugin - Conditional Menus.

As the title says, Conditional Menus is a simple WordPress plugin which allows you to swap or disable the menus in the theme as per specific conditions. This means you can create different menus in different posts, pages, categories, archive pages, etc. It is super easy to use. You would create the menus as usual in WordPress Admin > Appearance > Menus, then add the menu conditions in Manage Locations tab, and the menus on the frontend will swap according to the specified conditions.
