MediaCenter WP Theme v1.0.3 released

We are happy to announce the availability of MediaCenter WP Theme v1.0.3. This is a major update and we have included lot of exciting features. Please take a look at Changelog.txt for detailed changes.

Here is a round up of the various features available with v1.0.3

Product Live Search

Lot of our customers and potential buyers have asked us about the availability of this feature. With v1.0.3, we have shipped this feature built-in. We have used Twitter typeahead.js to build our live search. Typeahead.js is a flexible JavaScript library that provides a strong foundation for building robust typeaheads.

We have also used Bloodhound.js, a suggestion engine which computes suggestions based on the query and Handlebars.js for templating.

Sticky Header

Now you will be able to choose if you want the main navigation to stick to top when the user scrolls down. This option is available only for Header Style 2.

Revamped Search Bar Area

Earlier the search area had issues with display. Now we have revamped the code and added options in MCOptions panel to let the user decide what they want to show.

Default Product View

Now we can set the default product view as either Grid or List. There is also an option which can be enabled to remember User selection of view. For example, if a user has chosen grid view, the view will be preserved throught the pages. This is achieved using cookies.

More Speed

We have used W3 Total Cache to achieve high speed. When tested with YSlow, we are able to achieve a performance score of 91 with overall grade A. We also acheived 87/100 in Google PageSpeed. We have used plugins for demo purposes which are unavoidable by tuning the performance a higher grade can be acheived

Latest Owl Carousel

We have upgraded the carousel to owl 2.0 which has advanced features including RTL compatability.
