Icons

YOOtheme is a well-known template and extension provider for Joomla and WordPress who helps you to create professional websites. But to make your website or interface design a real eye-catcher we had one thing missing: Icons! Icons are an essential tool to simplify user interfaces and today almost every major website uses icons to highlight important parts in their content.

This is why we created a great resource of beautiful and handcrafted icons for web and print projects. We got commercial icon sets including e-commerce, community, file and folder icons and many more as well as many freebies.

As a member of our icon club you will get access to hundreds of handcrafted and detailed icons. New icon sets are added continuously!

Typography

You can create some beautiful content by using some simple HTML elements. The Warp theme framework offers some neat styles for all HTML elements and a great set of CSS classes to style your content. Basic HTML is very easy to learn and this small guide shows you how to use all styles provided by the Warp framework.

Basic HTML Elements

Here is a short demonstration of text-level semanticts. The <p> element creates a new paragraph. It will have some space before and after itself. To turn your text into hypertext just use the <a> element.

Text-Level Semantics

You can emphasize text using the <em> element or to imply any extra importance the <strong> element. Highlight text with no semantic meaning using the <mark> element. Markup document changes like inserted or deleted text with the <del> element or <ins> element. To define an abbreviation use the <abbr> element and to define a definition term use the <dfn> element.

  • Warp Framework - Fast and Slick Theme Framework
  • ZOO - Content Application Builder

Quotations and Code

Inline quotations can be defined by using the <q> element.

The <blockquote> element defines a long quotation which also creates a new block by inserting white space before and after the blockquote element.

To define a short inline computer code use the <code> element. For a larger code snippet use the <pre> element which defines preformatted text. It creates a new text block which preserves both spaces and line breaks.

pre {
    margin: 15px 0;
    padding: 10px;
    font-family: "Courier New", Courier, monospace;
    font-size: 12px;
    line-height: 18px;
    white-space: pre-wrap;
}
Use the <small> element for side comments and small print.

Useful CSS Classes

Here is a short demonstration of all style related CSS classes provided by the Warp framework.

Highlight Content

Drop caps are the first letter of a paragraph which are displayed bigger than the rest of the text. You can create a drop cap using the CSS class dropcap. To emphasize text with some small boxes use <em> element with the CSS class box.

This simple box is intended to group large parts of your content using the CSS class box-content.
