Updated to Bootstrap 5 Stable Version

As you know, the stable release of Bootstrap 5 has been officially out a few days ago, we have also updated Bootstrap to the stable version. Now you can enjoy all the exciting features the stable version has to offer like RTL support, brand new utility API, new off-canvas component, updated forms, and more with Helix Ultimate 2.0. Find out more about the Bootstrap 5 stable version HERE.

Add Custom Code After The Body Tag

Helix Ultimate 2.0 Beta 3

Make your Helix Ultimate 2.0 more yours with the new field for injecting custom code after opening the body tag. You can now add custom code immediately after the body tag to enhance your site's specific parts or individual pages.

Also, if you want to use Google Tag Manager with your Helix-powered site, you can add your Google Tag Manager code immediately after the body tag. There you have it - a clean and efficient way to inject your code after the opening of the body tag.

Some Notable Improvements

You'll enjoy several bug fixes and performance improvements with the new beta release. Some of the CSS styles went missing for the breadcrumbs in the last release, which has been fixed now. Pagination was not working with Joomla 4 in the last build, which has been made compatible with the update too.

Give the changelog a read to find out the other minor fixes and improvements.

More Accessibility-Ready

As promised, with the beta 3 release, Helix Ultimate 2.0 is now even more WCAG friendly! Accessibility is very important these days and is required by law in many situations. Your favorite template framework has been carefully designed and developed in our dedication to making websites more accessible to users.

@Paul Frankowski asking a question and show case a bug for Helix Ultimate in Github is like asking a question to god - no answer or attention!

Hey Joomshaper-Team,

we just tested the new Helix Ultimate and it looks really great :-) The new Header Styles rock!

One small thing regarding Blog Images though - We usally use the Joomla-based image fields (intro_image, fulltext_image) for our client's websites, since it enables us to differentiate between list and detail view - this makes the tab "Blog Options" obsolete and usually causes confusion. Do you think you could implement an option in the plugin to disable this tab?

thanks!

In that template you should include the anchor animation for One Page sites, as an option, just like in SP builder

Will there be an upgrade path from Ultimate to Ultimate 2.0? Is it worth me starting a new project using Ultimate or should I wait for the stable release of 2.0? Thanks

Pls step up your Github precense though there is no feedback or coolaborative work with customers and their reports there. It should be a priority for a Joomshaper Helix Ultimate developer to have attention and get feedback for bug reports for Helix Ultimate. If you ask people to report bugs there but dont care whats the idea??
