Elgg 1.9 with new responsive theme

Posted on Jul 7, 2013 in News | 0 comments

Elgg 1.9 will be released shortly, and I’m very pleased to announce that this version of Elgg comes with a new responsive theme, that I have created.

Evan Winslow from Elgg asked a few months ago if I would be interested in using my experience with mobile Elgg designs to incorporate a solution into Elgg core. I would of course love to and we agreed that I should go ahead with the idea.

I made a few suggestions, a responsive redesign of Elgg’s default theme and a separate plugin. After an interesting and constructive dialogue with Elgg’s core team, it was decided that the best solution would be a responsive Elgg theme as a bundled plugin.

The theme will be included in Elgg 1.9 and is named Aalborg Theme, after my hometown. My goal have been to design a fully responsive mobile-first layout and to give Elgg a slightly fresher color palette.

It has been a pleasure and an exciting challenge to create the theme and I’m happy to contribute in this manner. I think it’s awesome that the people behind Elgg decided to support smaller screens out of the box.

Hope you like Elgg 1.9 with Aalborg theme, you can get a sneak peek here, Elgg 1.9 live demo
