Fusion Builder +
A Whole Lot More
Avada 5.0 mainly focuses on the new Fusion Builder, which provides you with useful time saving features, brand new codebase for performance and easy to use interface. At the same time, we are always listening to our customer base to make constant improvements to our product. Avada 5.0 contains even more useful features that make your life easier and allow you to build what you want to build, without having to modify code. Below are the some of the other main highlights of Avada 5.0
Introducing 4 New Professionally Designed Demos
Not just any demos, these are Avada demos that are professionally designed and stand out from the crowd. As always, you can easily import through our demo importer, or simply select a single page through the new Fusion Builder Library.
Avada Health is a multi-page demo perfect for the medical industry. It focuses on general practice, but can easily be adapted to fit any specialty practice.
Avada Resume utilizes a side header and a clear, crisp design. Perfect or individuals who want to show off their work to potential companies or the web in general.
Avada Technology is an edgy design that certainly stands out from the crown. Big beautiful backgrounds along with creative design make this demo very unique.
Avada Wedding, made for those who are walking down the aisle on that special day. Create a beautiful page to display details about your upcoming wedding.
New Header 7 Option with Logo in the Middle
This highly requested header option allows for a unique design in a single click, putting the logo in the middle and your menu items on the sides of it.
Mobile Visibility System
Our new mobile visibility system allows you to choose what design shows up on each screen size (small / medium / large). And best of all, you get to choose when each size breaks through our new mobile visibility breakpoints in the Fusion Theme Options Panel.
Individual Sidebar Breakpoint
Being able to freely choose your mobile layout choice has become more and more important. We’ve added breakpoints for various areas of the theme, and now have one strictly for sidebars. This highly requested feature allows you to choose when your sidebars break into responsive mode.
Adjust Column Spacing To The Exact Pixel
We no longer offer only spacing or no spacing for columns. Avada now allows you to choose column spacing down to the exact pixel per column, giving you extended creative freedom in design.
Save Your Own Custom Color Schemes
Why add more pre-built schemes when you can simply save your own! Another hugely requested feature that has been addd to Avada. Entire color profiles can now be saved and managed with a few clicks of a mouse on the color tab in Fusion Theme Options.
New Section Separator Styles For Incredible Design Possibilities
Avada’s section separator has had 6 new styles added that can drastically change the look of your site. The new styles provide creative design capabilities like slants, clouds, big circles, half circles, big triangles and rounded splits.
Big Half Circle
Order Blog Posts However You’d Like
We’ve added an order parameter for the blog element that allows you to order your posts by; date, post title, post slug, author, comments, last modified or have them be completely random.
New Option Correlation Technology
Avada’s advanced option system allows you to build unique designs with a single theme. We achieve this through an incredible list of customization options that are based on our system of globals vs overrides. We’ve made this even better by creating Option Correlation Technology. This allows you to see what is set in Fusion Theme Options for any Fusion Builder or Fusion Page Option that has a corresponding global option. The global value is auto pulled from theme options and displayed in the option description. It links directly to the global option in a new window so you can quickly change the value.
Token Registration With The New Envato API
Envato’s new API allows us to connect auto theme updates, Avada demos, and the included premium plugins through one product registration. upon updating, simply register your purchase on the Product Registration page to receive those items. This method allows us to securely offload the content which reduces the theme size by over 60%! This massive savings means easy installation via WP admin.
Portfolio & FAQ Page Templates Converted To Builder Elements
Avada is all about constant improvement. Both FAQ and the Portfolio page templates are no longer needed since both of them have a Fusion Builder Element that offers more flexibility and features. These page templates have been removed and will be converted to Fusion Builder elements when you update to Avada 5.0.
Overall Codebase Cleanup & Continued Refactoring
Our team proudly works on Avada every day, and constantly looks for ways to improve the overall performance and code structure. Avada 5.0 has made a huge step in that direction with several performance enhancing changes, less queries run and continued refactoring of the codebase for the fastest, lightest version of Avada yet!
New Portfolio Options
New global and individual Portfolio element options for portfolio text layouts to show/hide categories, text align and boxed padding options.
Avada Status Page
Your user dashboard in our support center now automatically pulls patches of all versions for easy identification and reference.
