The first live demo of UB Trex theme is out for Magento 2.2.6. This remains to be a work-in-progress demo, we’re ironing bugs, optimizing responsive layout, and adding further improvements. So stay tuned.
As you might know, Trex is a dynamic free theme with a compelling look and clean code that we first created for Magento 1. This one was specially designed for the bike and bike accessories web stores. We loved it, our members appreciated it too.
However, Trex is 6+ years old now, and it needs a new look in sync with the new-age design approach and absolutely new Magento 2 platform. For this reason, our team carefully crafted and had a significant makeover with a brand new design for the Trex theme and gave it a new code, named UB Trex. Continue reading

When you have a large catalog of different products, creating new products one-by-one or updating existing products manually are far from practical. So, it’s essential to find a tool that gives you the ability to manage multiple records in a single operation.

- A language package is a collection of translation dictionaries for all words and phrases in Magento 2 application.
This article will guide you through the process of creating a new language for your Magento 2 theme.
