Major Essence update

Posted at Feb 19th 2014 20:43:43

Almost 9 months ago the first version of Essence was released. Besides a few bug changes and compatibility updates, the theme didn't change much since then. Until today! Today the theme gets its first big update, a complete redesign of the homepage.

The biggest change is that the video slider doesn't take the space of the full page anymore, but is now smaller. This allows for content next to the slider, as well as the rest of the page that is no longer below the fold anymore.

New homepage features:

- Smaller slider
- Video description and information of featured videos next to the slider
- Less whitespace between sections
- More videos in the "top videos" list

As far as the mobile versions go, they remain mostly the same.
