You might have noticed a slow down in our Fluida updates release cycle in last months. You might have also noticed that we took a bit longer than usual to fix some small issues that were quite annoying for some. But you needn’t start worry, we haven’t given up, we haven’t forgotten Fluida, no need to pack your bags and move to a different theme just yet.
The reason for the delays is actually a very simple one: for the last few months we’ve been drinking our coffee* in big(ger) secret (than usual) and been covertly working on an even greater and better Fluida. And what best time to reveal our secret project than on Fluida’s second birthday! This time the cake is not a lie*.
Today we’re happy to indulge everyone with a sneak preview to Fluida’s evil bigger twin sister – introducing Fluida Plus theme for WordPress!
We call her twin because she’s as much as her sister theme and then some, bigger because going to the features gym really worked out for her and evil because just like her sister she was born out of a deal with the devil and because you’ll have to pay the price for it.
We’ve always had plenty of ideas for extra features and functionality that we wanted to include in our themes and we did our best to include all we could. Thanks to its customizability and reconfigurability, Fluida already feels like a premium theme. And a free one on top!
This is why Fluida Plus is even more than a premium theme – she gets the best of both worlds. Most of her code is shared with Fluida, reviewed for the repository and trusted and used by thousands of sites, and you also get to have all those extra features and functionality that the repository rules don’t accept. Features like a bigger, better and sortable landing page, advanced post metas, advanced widgets, shortcodes, page templates, porftolios, extra widget areas and much much more.
Fluida Plus is not yet available for purchase. There are still quirks to sort out and tests to run so we’ll be starting a closed-beta and make her available to all our Developers Club members in the upcoming days.
We should be publishing the new demo site for Fluida Plus in the next few days – but until then, for your delight, are just some of the awesome Plus features:
New page templates
New theme options
Including mobile menu responsiveness trigger limit, extra landing page elements, header/footer scripts support and even landing page elements reordering support.
