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.

New Free Plugin: Conditional Menus

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.

Adding Hooks Has Never Been So Easy

Hooks, which are technically called WordPress Action Hooks, allow users to insert their own custom executable code into WordPress. Hooks can be extremely powerful saving you time and money in development costs. To see examples of what Hooks can do, we have created a demo area to illustrate the power and convenience of Hook.

In the past, if a user wanted to add custom code via a Hook, they would have had to create a custom-functions.php file for their Themify theme. Not anymore!

Introducing Hook Content:

Hooks

With release of Themify Framework 1.7.3, Themify has given users the power to add their custom code via Hook Content without the need of creating a custom-functions.php file saving you time. Using the Themify Framework Panel interface, you can now easily create Hooks in a matter of a few clicks. You can use Themify’s Shortcodes to use Themify pre-existing functions such as Slider, Twitter, Map and much more! Also, it will save you hours of time with debugging code as you won’t need to sift through lines and lines of code.

To learn more about Themify’s new amazing feature, read our Hook Content documentation.
