Avada is the #1 selling theme of all time and has been for an upcoming 5 years! We continue to make the best theme on the market even better for our 650,000+ fantastic customers.  Avada 5.2 continues the tradition of giving you value added features that allow you to build beautiful websites with ease. We’ve highlighted some of our favorite additions below! Updates are FREE to anyone who has bought a license so please enjoy!


Entirely New Demo Importer That Is Hands Down The Best On The Market

Avada demos are not like other competitor demos. A team of professional designers put forth a major effort into making them top quality, industry specific and simply beautiful. They serve a huge role for our customers by saving them time, displaying various features and giving them a fast & easy to get their site up and running.

We first built an importer that allowed you to import a demo with a click of a button. Avada 5.2 has majorly improved this process by allowing you to import individual content from any demo. Select to import everything, or only select pages or posts or widgets or theme options. This gives major flexibility to easily import content from several demos. Want the Creative demo but the Modern Shop products to turn it into an eCommerce site? Done. And, there is now an option on each demo to uninstall content imported from a demo!

New Gallery Element To Easily Build Beautiful Photo Galleries

The new Gallery Fusion Builder element is so simple to use and has many intuitive customization options that allow you to quickly build wonderful image galleries to showcase on your site. Check it out in action below along with some of our favorite features. And, this is just the beginning.

Bulk Image Uploader & Selector

It’s no fun when you have to add one image at a time. The new Gallery Element allows you to quickly upload or select as many images as you need in one go.

Easily rearrange images into your desired order
Masonry layout or Grid with fixed/auto picture size
Choose between 1-6 columns
Select any column spacing all the way down to 0px
Select various hover effect options
Show image titles /captions in the lightbox, or not.


Masonry Layouts Came With The New Gallery Option, But We Could Not Stop There. Masonry Is Also Added For Blog and Portfolio Elements

A highly requested feature, you can now choose to use a masonry layout for portfolio and blog grid layouts. Masonry allows images to cover more than one column horizontally and vertically producing a very beautiful effect. This also works with archives and has a special hover effect when used with blog grid or portfolio text layouts.


Sticky Sidebars Make It Into Avada

Avada’s sidebar setup is one of the most versatile around, and now even more so with the ability to make your sidebars sticky. Sticky sidebars allow them to stay fixed in position when scrolling down. These look best with smaller sidebar content but can be used on any sidebar.


Mega Menus Now Allow You To Insert Background Images!

Easily insert one background image that covers all columns for your mega menu, or you can set individual background images per column! This feature really enhances overall creativity and can produce incredible looking menus.


Menu Labels Are Now Possible So You Can Highlight Special Menu Links!

Menu labels are eye catching, attention grabbing and simply beautiful. Want to highlight a special product or page? Easily done! Menu Highlight Labels are possible with any menu item and have several customization options.


Mobile Menus Now Have Their Own Unique Menu Assignment

So often menus are large and need to be so they display all the necessary content to your viewers. However on mobile, viewers don’t want to sort through dozens and dozens of pages in your menu. Avada 5.2 now allows you to create and assign a separate custom menu that will only show on mobile devices so your viewers can quickly see the important content.


New Global Theme Options For Portfolio & Alert Box Elements

Avada is the originator of global theme options vs individual overriding page options. This is a huge part of the backbone for our incredibly advanced option system that works together in harmony to make your life easier. Avada 5.2 brings you more global theme options for the Portfolio and Alert Box Elements so you can set it and forget it.

Full Global Portfolio Element Options

Our Portfolio Element is widely used and very versatile with options. Avada 5.2 now provides you with a full set of global theme options for every option that the Portfolio Element offers. This complete set can save you loads of time by setting your desired options one time in Fusion Theme Options and having them used on every Portfolio instance on your site.

Alert Boxes Get Global Options

Alert boxes are needed on every site. Our Alert Box Element has many customization options so you can make them how you want, however there are automatic Alert Boxes used (like on forms) that were hard coded styles. Avada 5.2 now gives you the power to set global options for each type of Alert Box so they perfectly match your site design.


Performance Enhancements For Speed

We always put a focus on our codebase for performance, optimization and coding standards. Avada 5.2 continues this with some very nice changes to make your site faster. We take great pride in this area and always make it a priority.

Google Fonts and Font Awesome No Longer Cause Render-Blocking

We’ve combined both Google and Font Awesome fonts into the dynamic css so they will no longer affect above the fold content upon page loading. This enhances performance and allows these fonts to no longer show up as render blocking files in speed tests like Google Page Speed.

Advanced Responsive Image Setup Added To Additional Areas

Avada’s advanced responsive image setup allows the proper image size to load based on screen or container size. This produces major performance enhancements. This advanced setup is now added to the Person Element, WooCommerce Featured & Product Carousel Elements as well as content inside of various column setups.

Additional Noteworthy Goodies

Pull Blog & Portfolio Posts By Tags

You can choose to display your blog or portfolio posts by categories, and now also by tags.

New Option To Align Video Elements

Both Youtube and Vimeo Elements have a new align option to be left/center/right.

Toggles or Accordions

Our Toggle Element now has an option to make one item open at a time or several.

Portfolio Carousel Column Spacing

Now choose the spacing between each column when using the Portfolio Carousel layout.

Page Title Bar Line Height Option

A new global theme option and page option to control the line-height for the page title bar text.

Latest Slider Revolution Plugin

Every Avada update includes the latest and greatest version of the Slider Revolution plugin.

Latest Layer Slider Plugin

Every Avada update includes the latest and greatest version of the Layer Slider plugin.

Control Twitter Widget Icon Color

Choose the color that works best for the twitter icon on your site using the widget.

Control Meta Data Location

Meta Data for blog and portfolio posts can now be displayed below the article or title.

Additional Button Attributes

The button element now allows you to use additional attributes to the anchor tag, ex: rel=’nofollow’.

Support for Apple Pay In WooCommerce

Apple Pay is now officially supported when using WooCommerce and follows Apple’s design standards.
