Themes: Announcing Inspire 8 Lite

Posted by: insraqon 2010/7/24 16:40:00 5069 reads I am very happy to release Inspire 8, another theme of the Inspire series. Now there are actually 9 themes (I count Inspire 3 and CSS3 reborn as two themes : each of them has a distinct design. To tell the truth, I didn’t think it will go that long when I first created the project. I think I might stop at the number 6, as it is thought to be a fortunate number in Chinese culture. I would like to say thank you for those people who has been supporting me.

Features

1. Compatible with IE6 (it is IE6), IE7, IE8, Firefox 1.5+, Chrome 4.0+, Opera 10.0+.
2. Large slider included in the header. It should be manually adjusted in the Lite version. The slider will be integrated into XOOPS in Premium version(comming soon).
3. UnitPng Fix for IE6. You are right! The transparent PNG in the slider is working in IE6.
4. 1kg grid system is integrated instead of 960 grid system. For more information, please visit the official website.
5. About block system: left and right blocks are displayed in the sidebar and other blocks are displayed in the content area.

2. Search box added in the header.
3. Some icons with JQuery animation effect in the header.
4. Login slider or tooltip.
