Avada Mobile App

WooCommerce List View

Avada 3.8 will contain a new “list” view for WooCommerce products. This has been a highly requested feature. When activated, there will be a nice little toggle icon on the shop page that allows the viewer to choose list or grid view on the fly!

Major Enhancements To Parallax Effects In Full Width Container

Our full width container is widely used and highly beloved. We’ve given it major love in our upcoming version by adding parallax directional movements, speed options, youtube and vimeo backgrounds (with no black bars!) and made it mobile compatible.

Parallax Direction

Ability to choose the direction at which the parallax effect moves as you scroll. Select fixed, up, down, left or right.

Parallax Speed

Easily control the overall speed of parallax background image movement from .1 (slow) to 1 (fast).

Youtube & Vimeo

In addition to self hosted, Youtube & Vimeo video backgrounds have been added along with ratio settings to avoid black bars!

Parallax on Mobile

Now your full width parallax sections will also look and behave identically on mobile as they do on desktops. It’s a beautiful thing.

Brand New iLightbox Integration

We’ve made the switch over to iLightbox. It’s sleek, fast and loaded with options. Fully responsive, 6 design skins, social sharing, thumbnail positioning and more! Paired with our theme options, it is simply beautiful and gives you control over the design.

Carousel Sliders Get A Facelift!

We’ve spent a lot of time and effort into making our carousel sliders better.  Choose column size, column spacing, mouse drag to scroll, show/hide navigation, border display and autoplay. These options allow you to produce some stunning looks.

Continually Optimized & Refactored Code

Our team has devoted a lot of time and energy into reviewing and optimizing our code. Our refactoring will result in a slimmer, faster version of Avada than ever before. Our motivation for this continuous process is to enhance your workflow experience and ensure code quality stays at a high level. This is a continual effort and will make using Avada more delightful than it already is.


We are now using less css. Styles are combined into one css file which leads to less server requests.


Header.php file has been cleaned and refactored. All necessary css/js is stored in external files.


General refactoring has been done for several areas and is a continual effort our development team commits to.

Hooks & Filters

Hooks and filters have been added to different areas of Avada, giving more control over customizations.

More Streamlined User Experience

We have added a new Welcome Screen to the admin area that gives you quick access to all our demos, our support links, product registration for auto updates, plugins, system status and other important links and future goodies. Everything you need in one place.

Over 40 New Theme + Page Options For Even More Customization!

We’ve added over 40 new options to make your life easier. These options put you in the drivers seat, giving you control over your site.

WooCommerce Product Tabs

This option allows you to choose if the product tabs are horizontal or vertical on the single product page.

Parallax Footer

Now the entire footer can have a parallax scrolling effect. Check the box and save to get instant footer eye candy.

Smooth Scroll

Smooth scroll has been added and it is smooth as butter.  It can be enabled/disabled from theme options.

Responsive Heading Typography

This option allows the headings to respond based on screen size to ensure the font size is always ideal.

Related Posts/Projects

Large set of new options to control the look of the related posts/projects for blog and portfolio single post pages.

Mobile Menu

Several new options added for colors, font sizes and padding. As well s a new unique mobile logo option.

Social Icon Size

Now you can control the size of social icons & the boxed background padding for all social icons across the theme.

Load More Posts

New option added that allows you to load more post with a button click, instead of loading them automatically.

Header Margins

We’ve added individual margin options for each heading size, providing ultimate flexibility.

And That’s Not All, There Is Plenty More!
