The Theme comes with some unqiue and cool features.
This theme provides a special option to display a slightly animated frame around the layout. You can decide between a frame that overlays your content and one that “hugs” your content by adding padding around it. The width of the frame automatically adapts itself to save space on different viewport sizes.
Further you can switch on the frame block option, which will add the same spacing of the layout frame between each block section.
To edit the background color and width of the frame, use the Customizer in the Warp UI.
Dolce Vita comes with a special layout position called bottom-offset. It is perfect for banners or small teasers. The dimensions and spacings are calculated automatically according to the size of the published content, so that it always stays centered between the bottom and footer sections.
Footer’s block appearance
The style of this panel is bound to the footer block appearance settings. If you select the primary background and the primary contrast options for the footer, the same settings are applied to Bottom-Offset position. Otherwise it uses the default panel style.
This time we decided to fully style almost everything in the contrast component
.uk-contrast. This means all kinds of UIkit components like alerts, buttons, panels, subnavs, panels, text elements and forms are completely styled. We recommend this usage for dark and colored images and for
.uk-block-secondary modifier class/secondary background option in the block appearance section.
We’ve added a new component – Contrast Primary, which adapts the same components as .uk-contrast specifically for primary blocks. To manually apply this modifier, use the
Please use the Customizer in the Warp UI, there you will find two labeled sections Primary and Secondary, these settings will completely manage both components.
The main navigation of Dolce Vita Theme supports the latest UIkit sticky navigation component features. You are able to choose from 4 different navigation layouts.
