YOOtheme, A Warp Framework Theme

YOOtheme are the creators of a Warp framework that is used for themes on content management systems such as WordPress and Joomla. Since the focus of this website is on WordPress, we will concentrate this article on describing the Warp framework by YOOtheme in a WordPress context.

Some people think that the Warp framework is limited to suers who run their website to Joomla, but they are wrong. The Warp framework is a direct rival to the Genesis framework that we talked about in this article. To summarize the idea of a theme framework . Each framework is like a parent theme that contains all the functionality of a theme. There are then child themes created to work with the parent theme. Changes that are made to the child theme have no effect on the parent theme, and vice versa. This means that important security updates and other such software upgrades that provide stability and structure to the basic functioning of a theme can be made to the parent theme without altering the child theme. This addresses a fundamental issue on WordPress. It is a common complaint from people that they will go through the effort of tweaking a theme in a specific manner to suit their website, only for a security update to wipe out any of these changes. Having a theme framework addressed that issue well.

The advantages of the Warp framework are numerous, but because of its association with Joomla, there it is not very well represented in the WordPress marketplace. The Warp templates by YOOtheme have a fully responsive design. This means that they look the exact same whether you are viewing a Warp-enabled website on mobile phone, laptop or tablet. Warp templates also contain UIKit which is a fantastic utility that can be used to run various functions if you have any sort of programming knowledge.

The Warp framework contains an impressive array of styles that can be tailed to fit your website. Their colour schemes are great and with over 40 different child themes to choose from that are compatible with the parent framework, you are not stuck for choice. There is also the ability to support multi layouts on your website with Warp. You can combine these with the unlimited number of styles available to create a site that looks innovative and unique to go along with the already mentioned responsiveness that Warp gives. Sidebar management is an absolute doddle with options to place them on either the left or right-hand side of your pages and the ability to adjust their width and alignment. Every setting is concise and easy to figure out.

Menu management is also a vital component of your website. The Warp framework handles this area brilliantly. It is easy to adjust the behaviour of the pop-up menus on your websites. You can also add a subline to your menus to give them that extra element of panache that makes them stand out as pristine and modern. All this can be achieved without the use of any widgets.

The only issue with using the Warp framework is that a lot of it is designed with the Joomla content management system in mind. This means that not everything is catered towards a WordPress user, and some features may not work as well as you want them to. But for a great alternative to the usual framework like Genesis it may well be worth your time testing out your website with the Warp framework installed.
