On a mission from God

When visiting my old place of work as a chaplain, a regular topic of conversation is why I have moved from working in engineering to being a church minister. The short answer I sometimes give to provoke discussion is that “I’m on a mission from God”. What I’m wanting to stir is a conversation about "Why are we here? What is our purpose? What are we living for?"

Theme Styles

Solar provides different style variations of the default theme. In addition to these styles we added several other style settings like colors and fonts. Combining the different style options allows you to create your own unique website design.

Demo

Special Layout

You want to benefit from the whole screen resolution to provide your customers with a great experience? Solar is divided into 6 different sections (Header, Top-A, Main, Bottom, Footer), whose width can be set separately to up to 100%.

Theme Profiles

We created some nice theme profiles using the different styles, colors and fonts, you can choose from in the theme administration. You can create your own profiles and even assign them to different menu items. Click on one of the profile images to load it.

Theme Layout

This theme comes with a customized Warp6 module layout. The blue module positions allow you to choose a module layout which defines the module alignment and proportions: equal, double or stack. You can easily add your own module layouts. The two available sidebars, highlighted red, can be switched to the left or right side and their widths can easily be set within the theme administration. For modules in the blue and red positions you can choose different module styles. Take a look at the module variations page to get an overview.

Special Features

Grid-a-Licious

Looking for a totally different way to present your blog articles? Solar gives you the opportunity to arrange posts in a fluid layout like the one you can see on the frontpage: Grid-a-Licious! It is fully responsive and automatically adapts to all screen resolutions.

Demo
Fluid Article Layout
Demo
Default Article Layout

To implement this effect follow these steps:

  1. Set all articles you want in the fluid layout as Featured Article
  2. Joomla: Create a menu item with the menu item type Featured Articles
  3. Joomla: Now just set the number of articles you want to be displayed in # Intro Articles

Fixed Header & Menu

Enhance your website with an eyecatching header effect. Just set the header fixed to hide it with a cool scroll effect. The main menu is attached to the top of the site.

Featured Image

Present your blog images in a beautiful way. The Featured Image is placed in front of the title and benefits from the whole article width. To make them look even better, you can enable the Widgetkit Spotlight effect on all Featured Images. To set up images like the one you can see on the theme frontpage just follow these steps:

Demo
Featured Image Spotlight
  1. Joomla: Add an Intro Image to your article in the Images and Links option
    WordPress: Click Set featured image in the post and upload the image you want to add
  2. Joomla: Set the Image Float to none
  3. Enable Featured Spotlight in the template configuration if you like

Custom Widgetkit Styles

We created a custom style for our Widgetkit Slideshow, perfectly fitting the theme. To apply this style, follow these steps:

Slideshow

  1. Download and unzip the bonus styles package for Widgetkit available in the download area
  2. Copy the folder slideshow/styles/solar
  3. Joomla: Paste it to media/widgetkit/widgets/slideshow/styles
    WordPress: Paste it to wp-content/plugins/widgetkit/widgets/slideshow/styles
  4. Now you can select the style "Solar" in the settings of your Widgetkit Slideshow

Social Icons

As a little extra Solar theme offers a set of social icons. They are easy to add to your content and are part of our editable Adobe Fireworks Image Source Files.

Here is a little code example how to add them:

<ul class="social-icons">
  <li class="twitter"><a href="#"></a></li>
  <li class="rss"><a href="#"></a></li>
  <li class="facebook"><a href="#"></a></li>
  <li class="flickr"><a href="#"></a></li>
  <li class="xing"><a href="#"></a></li>
  <li class="google-plus"><a href="#"></a></li>
  <li class="youtube"><a href="#"></a></li>
  <li class="vimeo"><a href="#"></a></li>
  <li class="github"><a href="#"></a></li>
</ul>

Possible class names are twitter, rss, facebook, flickr, xing, google-plus, youtube, vimeo and github.
