New Header Variations

Helix Ultimate 2.0 Alpha 5 comes with 4 new header variations to enrich the scope and versatility of your Joomla site. Now, you have more options to choose the header that best matches your style.

Apart from that, several tweaks have also been performed on 2 existing header variations to deliver optimal performance.

More Control on Logo & Header Heights

With Helix Ultimate 2.0, you have more control over your header heights and logo heights. We’ve aimed to strike a balance between flexibility and simplicity. It is now more flexible to achieve your header requirements, works at all device sizes, and easy to maintain.

Search & Login Module Into Headers Layout

Two new options have been added to the header’s layout – Enable Search & Enable Login. It goes without saying, these are an integral part of the site’s functionality. With Helix Ultimate 2.0, you can easily enable the search and login module into your header’s layout for a seamless user experience.

Enhanced Unit Field

Before we only had the number field where you had to manually input the unit if you wanted to use anything other than the default unit px. We have modified it a little bit and added the unit field option. Depending on your goals, you can choose your preferred CSS unit from the drop-down list or just write down the unit after the value and the system will automatically select the unit.

Wrapping Up

Helix Ultimate 2.0 Alpha 5 is now out on GitHub! Do give it a try to get a taste of the ultimate Joomla template framework. Keep your eyes on our blog and our newsletters for more updates on Helix Ultimate 2.0 and releases.
