We are pleased to announce the release of Essentials 1.3 for YOOtheme Pro with the addition of new Icon Collections, Sources Improvements, Forms Updates, and most importantly lowered the build size almost in half! Wow.

Icon Collections Manager

We have completely refactored the Icons Module with an on-demand Icon Collections manager. The distribution build does not include icons anymore, those would be downloaded and installed on demand through the Icon Collections Manager. Not being content with that we have redesigned the Icons Picker UI with a list view and performance improvements.

Icons Collection for YOOtheme Pro

New Icon Collections

The Icon Collections Manager allowed us to lower the build size while growing the icons library to 12 collections and more than 12k icons! All of them are Open Source, free to use for private and commercial projects, and ready for UIkit and YOOtheme Pro customization features.

  • FontAwesome, the most popular icon set and toolkit.
  • Heroicons, hand-crafted icons by the makers of Tailwind CSS.
  • Ionicons, beautifully crafted icons built by the Ionic Framework team.
  • Zondicons, charming yet sophisticated designed by Steve Schoger.
  • Teenyicons, 15x15 grid, easily fit in small spaces with a crisp look.
  • Bootstrap (NEW), icon library from the Bootstrap!
  • Ant Design (NEW), premium icons from the popular React UI framework.
  • Boxicons (NEW), library carefully crafted for designers and developers.
  • Feather (NEW), simply beautiful open source icons.
  • Octicons (NEW), icon library from GitHub. 
  • Remix Icon (NEW), simply delightful icons.
  • Tabler Icons (NEW), pixel-perfect icons.

Sources Improvements

In the last post, we have introduced the Source Manager which has revolutionized the way sources are being used in YOOtheme Pro. And, although we are still working on some major updates, we are happy to release a completely refactored version that eases even further the creation of new sources, improves the integration of OAuth and other authentication workflows, and addresses some greatly awaited improvements.

Instagram Media resizing support
One of the most requested features was the ability to resize the media which YOOtheme Pro only supports for local images. After some considerations of pros and contras, we opted to download and cache the media locally which now yes, is resizable and faster accessed as any other local image.

External DB connection support
The Database Source has enormous potential, and your feedback made it obvious you want more of it. While we focus on all the major updates we considered it could be useful to already allow to connect to an external database as well.

Google Sheet Name support
Being able to specify the Sheet name beside the Spreadsheet ID allows for some interesting combinations of data within the same spreadsheet. It is now supported and ready to roll.

Honeypot Form Field

We are always welcoming feedback and recently we got a lot of requests for a Honeypot field, a GDPR friendly CAPTCHA alternative for blocking spam. So we gave some love to one of our favorite modules and make it happen.

Form Action Updates

Another recent request was an after submit action, Download, an action that triggers a file download after a successful form submission. Additionally, we added From Name support for the Email action, as well as Timeout and Open in New Window support for the Redirect action.

What’s Next

We took some extra care and time to refactor the Sources Module because we need a strong and easy to maintain base for what is coming next, Database Relations and Query Filtering 😎

I hope that we will soon be able to display Hikashop products and product pages in Yootheme Pro with Sources

+ 1 on this. This is so incredibly needed. I have said this before, but this is something I am very willing to pay to have developed.
