Viento 3.0

Reading Time: < 1 minuteToday, I created the first version of Viento 3.0 for WoltLab Suite 3.0.

Viento is a style family based on the colors of colors of Google’s Material Design. The style is very light weight with only a few (S)CSS modifications since the goal of this style is to prove that it’s easy to create a good looking style for WoltLab Suite 3.0 without having to write a lot of (S)CSS.

The Elevenfour Labs Moved

Reading Time: < 1 minuteToday the Elevenfour Labs moved to a new home – if you like to say so.
The content is the same – though some old pages were removed – and you’ll still find here what you found here before. The only difference is the addition of /content/ to the URL – so instead of https://elevenfour.net/labs/ it’s now https://elevenfour.net/content/labs/.

The Elevenfour Labs got a little refresh

Reading Time: < 1 minuteToday the Elevenfour Labs got a little refresh. Nothing spectacular but it looks a little different. The theme was changed to the new default Theme Twenty Seventeen coming with WordPress 4.7. In preparation for upgrading the Elevenfour server to PHP 7.x I also had to change the plugin that powers the progress bars showing on the projects pages so they look a bit different, too.

Should you experience any bugs please drop a comment, thanks. :)
