A brand new design tool: Theme options

Theme options is a result of us rolling out many new changes to the design tools of 23 Video. This allows developers to set up options for their themes — options that can be used by end-users to tweak the design.

Theme options can include colors, logos, fonts, and much more. The choices made by users are available to developers in Sass, Liquid, CSS and JavaScript, and when an options changes the entire site design is automatically rebuilt.

To check it out, visit Design -> Theme Options in the 23 Video backend. The options you create will automatically be added as a option card for customization of the current theme.

Custom designs for pages

Back in September we extended options for editing the content on default landing pages. Now, we’ve taken it a step further by providing more options for custom designes on pages, such as ‘log in’-, ‘sign-up’- and ‘forgotten password-pages.

We’ve added more layout blocks

Floating blocks in the design tool of 23 Video allows you to insert content to the layout grid.
You can add, move, and edit blocks. Each block is designed to add a specific type of content to your site.
