Ultimo is a premium Magento theme with advanced admin module. It’s extremely customizable, easy to use and fully responsive. Suitable for every type of store. Great as a starting point for your custom projects.
Compatible with Magento: 1.5.x (22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199), 1.6.x (188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11), 1.7.x (18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199)
You have never seen so many options! You can change the visual appearance of almost every element of the design. Your imagination is your only limit.
Change colors of almost 50 elements using color pickers, apply textures for header, footer and for the entire page, upload background image and configure its properties (position, repeating, attachment), change font and font-szie, and many many more…
Ultimo supports wide screens. In the admin panel you can select the maximum width of the page (from 1024 to 1680 pixels) or even specify your custom non-standard width.
Design is optimized for all the most popular screen resolutions. When screen is resized, design elements are transformed smoothly on each breakpoint (from 240 to 1680 pixels) in order to adapt to the current resolution. Width of the page is fluid, but you can also disable fluid width: in that case the width will only be changed on breakpoints.
Fluid grid system
Ultimo is based on fluid grid system (12-column)
You can choose the layout of the home page: one, two or three columns. Display custom content in multiple sidebar blocks. Enable/disable Magento’s default sidebar blocks.
Areas for custom content on the home page:
Clean and readable product page – your customers can easily find all important information.
Configurable width of the main columns, prominent brand logo (with link to other products), product image (customizable size) with Cloud Zoom and lightbox, tabs smoothly turning into accordion on narrow screens, additional custom tabs and CMS blocks, sliders for related and up-sell products, social bookmarks, customizable product options… In short – adjust product page to suit your needs.
Customize the display of products grid in category view. Set one of these options
1) hide, 2) show 3) show only on mouse hover – for the following elements: “Add to cart” button, ratings (stars), “Add to wishlist” and “Add to compare” links.
Each of the following elements can be displayed
Fluid, auto-adapting products grid
Set custom number of columns (products in a row): 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 for default screen resolution.
On wider (or narrower) screens the number of columns will automatically adapt to the current resolution (it will also adapt itself whenever the size of the web browser window is changed). For example, on wide screens the number of columns will be automatically increased to show more products in a row.
Switch between 2 styles of the drop-down menu: wide [demo] or classic [demo]. In wide menu you can display links in 4-8 columns. You can also display your custom content in a drop-down block. Colors are fully customizable.
1. Create custom sub-themes
Unlike many other themes, Ultimo lets you create your custom sub-themes (theme variants). You can create season-specific designs to change the look of your store for holidays, Christmas etc.
That’s very useful and very easy because Ultimo is independent from Magento’s “default” theme – it’s a separate design package (not a variant of Magento’s “default” theme). The most important advantages:
- custom sub-themes are upgrade-proof
- less code to maintain
- selected functionality can be shared between many themes
2. Starting point for custom project
Ultimo can serve as a great foundation to implement individual designs for your clients.
3. No Magento core files were modified
All layout modifications are stored in local.xml so all of the original layout files are kept intact.
