Starting with templates released in July, BC Gurus templates are now built on the Foundation 6 Framework.
The BC Gurus team have been using Foundation 5 for a long time now, but found the improvements in F6 along with the smaller file sizes made it the perfect time to revamp their master template and introduce some new features.
Improvements such as:
- They added both Drilldown and Accordion menus to the sidebar & mobile navigation (where appropriate). You choose the style you want to use and remove the other one;
- Media Objects...where your responsive layout grid fits the image rather than the other way around;
- New Features page, which includes Foundations Kitchen Sink widgets... all BC’ized;
- New Icons page, shows all the Font Awesome Icons that are available, all on one page along with some simple instructions for how to use them;
- Updated Gallery Module output. By default now, the gallery page uses a liquid code snippet and the Magnific.js lightbox to provide a much improved experience for photo galleries...yet still using the built in BC gallery module.
- Updated poplets on the store detail page. You can always go back to the old way, but now when you click on a poplet image the main image changes to that colour;
- Liquid Shopping Cart. BC Gurus are eating out own dog food here...they implemented the tutorial Daniel Telfer created for them showing how to update the BC Shopping Cart to use liquid markup. For these new templates you don’t have to worry about it, it’s already done!
- BC Widgets, they have pre-installed several of the BC Widgets the BC Team have provided the community;
- Forms use Foundation Markup and the new “I’m not a robot” Captcha;
