Helix Ultimate 2.0 RC 2: One Step Closer to Stable Release

Hello Helix Ultimate users! We are a big step closer to our Helix Ultimate 2.0 stable release. Today, we are releasing Helix Ultimate 2.0 RC 2 with a couple of new options, several fixes, and improvements. Our developers are working tirelessly to bring you the stable version ASAP. You just have to wait a bit more for this remarkable moment. 

Today’s (July 16th) RC 2 version is an experimental release and not ready for production sites. We wholeheartedly appreciate your interest in Helix Ultimate 2.0. You are invited to try this version, but DO Not use it on a production site.

Before you go through Helix Ultimate 2.0 RC 2, you can have a look at what came in our previous version here.

What’s in Helix Ultimate 2.0 RC 2

You already know the new Helix Ultimate 2.0 is packed with plenty of new features and functionalities. We have introduced many of these features in our previous updates. This Helix Ultimate 2.0 RC 2 will bring a couple of new options and fix several issues you might have experienced. 

Let’s take a look at the changelog to know what’s coming in this RC 2.

Helix Ultimate 2.0 RC 2 Changelog:

  • New: Sticky header offset option added
  • Fix: Multilingual template update issue
  • Fix: LoadTemplateData method's issue
  • Fix: Menu assign issue in template settings
  • Fix: Joomla 4 print popup issue
  • Fix: Custom logo URL issue
  • Fix: Layout builder grid option issue
  • Fix: Mega-menu full container issue
  • Fix: Missing language text

Sticky Header Offset Option

A lot of you want your website headers to be sticky. It is amazing how the header menu of your website stays fixed at the top and makes site navigation a lot easier. Now, with the new header sticky offset option, you can decide when you want your header to be sticky. This option lets you make your header sticky after a pixel value you place in there.

When you are logged in to your website, go to ExtensionsTemplates. Click on the template you are using, open the Template Option. Now, on the Template Option panel, go to BasicHeader, find the Sticky Header option at the bottom. Enable Sticky Header and Sticky Offset field will appear below. Give it a pixel value and save the changes.

Several More Fixes and Improvements

Apart from the sticky header offset option, we have brought some fixes and improvements too. We’ve added missing language text, fixed Joomla 4 print popup issue, solved custom logo URL issue, fixed-layout builder grid options issue, mega menu full container issue, and hardcoded helix ultimate issue. We hope these fixes will improve Helix Ultimate 2.0 and make your experience with it much smoother. 

We are drawing near to our Helix Ultimate 2.0 stable release. We believe this is going to change the way you build websites on Joomla. Test this Helix ultimate 2.0 RC 2, and do let us know your thoughts in the comment. And again, please do not use this version on your live site. Good luck.

You're welcome. Don't forget it was the RC version, not Stable. Windows updates can crash your system which is more painful, right.

Hi Amjad Rana,
Sorry but I never wrote that I'm going to test it on a Live site. I wrote:

Hi ребята. Отличная работа.
There is a small problem with the Header, which I wrote on GitHub. Exploring this problem, I looked at Style-1 Header.php. And in this regard, I want to express huge respect for changing the approach to the code. Now there is a clear code that is easy to customize instead of $output approach.

Helix Ultimate 2.0 takes off to new vertices for flexible development.
Respect guys!

I am reviewing the template, there is still a part that should be corrected in when the header left modal is selected to which the menu is shown a background image appears, there should be an option to change it. In this link https://prnt.sc/1cffbna you can review what I mean.

The search button should also have this design option like the one in this template https://www.joomshaper.com/joomla-templates http://demo.joomshaper.com/?template=opus
