Flexbox Grid

Flexbox and CSS Grid are the most popular responsive layout models which are widely supported across platforms and browsers. Our upcoming UB Atoms theme will support by both Flexbox and CSS Grid by default. If Flexbox is disabled, the CSS Grid will be used.

In this post, we’ll take a closer at the Flexbox that UB Atoms does support and learn how it helps distribute and align content in ways that Magento pages need.

A brief introduction about Flexbox

Flexbox -- a shorter term for CSS3 Flexible Box Layout -- is a new layout mode in CSS3. It describes ways to align and size elements including the parent element (the flex container) and the child elements (the flex items).

UB Atoms theme tructure

Last week we introduced a sneak peek of the upcoming Magento 2 theme at Ubertheme -- UB Atoms. We promised you a brand new theme that will be fully revamped, unlike any other Magento 2 themes that Ubertheme has offered. Today, we are happy to introduce you to the structure of the UB Atoms theme that we’re working on.

Reasoning…

When building the UB Atoms, we have been finding a uniform approach that makes the theme development and maintenance easier. The ultimate goal is to create a brand new M2 theme with good performance and extensive customization possibilities.

With that in mind, our team has thought about what we should change and how we should build a new M2 theme from scratch.

There are a number of points that UB Atoms will typically abide by: Continue reading

Inspired by Atomic Design -- a methodology of creating modular designs, UB ‘Atoms’ is designed to be exactly what it sounds like -- establishing the basic building blocks for pages, such as form label, an input or a button, color, typography, grids, and the like, rather than just creating simple collections of web pages.

Carousel examples and takeaways

Designing a carousel (sometimes called ‘slider’, ‘slideshow’) that works can be a real pain and it’s true that sliders do suck if they aren’t used or designed well. You might have heard of the drawbacks around sliders such as:

  • Only a small percentage of people actually click on a slider, which almost always the first slide;
  • Sliders don’t always work well on mobile devices;
  • People tend to ignore your slider because it triggers banner blindness. Visitors will skip the messages in your slider as they consider it advertisement or promotions;

So, is the carousel really bad? If carousels aren’t that effective, why do people use them?

Actually, carousels introduce a level of complexity to an interface, however, the carousels are everywhere on the web and have been an essential web design tool for e-commerce sites.

So, let’s take a closer look at some real use cases to see the possibilities that carousels offer and learn how to make carousels work better. Continue reading

UB Mega Menu v1.2.0

We’re happy to announce the release of UB Mega Menu v1.2.0 that brings a new menu type -- horizontally stacked category dropdown. This simple solution is handy for a massive retail store with deep level categories.

Let’s take a closer look and see how you can experiment with your mega navigations.

Multiple horizontal menu levels

With the horizontally stacked category dropdown, the mega menu is visually divided into the 3-level structure: Main menu > Submenu 1 > Submenu 2.

On mouse hover, each primary category branches into submenus with corresponding second-level and third-level subcategories visible at once in one dropdown.
