Asking For Your Help

You were probably wondering why it take us so long to release a new version. We already started to work on the next version which is based on your feedback and thus we want to make a much better Lubith. In order to include all the new features required by our users, we’ve realized that we have to completely rewrite the application. We didn’t want just to patch the old one but to make a better one instead and to overcome most of the current limitations. We’ve created a new architecture and started to work on it. But being a team of two people, we find ourselves facing a huge work volume. After a time, we started to face financial difficulties. We’ve realised that we are not able to complete such a huge task, just by ourselves.

From the beginning we wanted to make this tool available for everyone. Lubith is mainly a free tool. We would say that you get 95% of Lubith for free and 100% as a Pro Member.

We have about 90 000 users of which 99% are using the application for free.

We’ve chosen this kind policy but, unfortunately, it proves that having just a small number of paying users is not enough to sustain Lubith’s development.

An important part of the new version is already done, completely rewritten with a much advanced HTML and CSS engine. I hardly wait to show it to you. You can find more information on the crowdfunding campaign page.

If you like this project and you want it to be much better please support us now, we need your help. Any contribution would be appreciated, any amount, it could be as low as $1, it will make a difference.

We’ve started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, please open this link and support us: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wordpress-theme-generator/

New Minor Version Update (1.2.3)

This minor update brings several speed improvements:

Faster servers

Lubith is now running on a cloud architecture with SSD.

Faster thumbnail generator

A lot of time, few seconds, was needed to generate the thumbnail, much more than the theme itself. We created our own thumbnail generation service, very fast and reliable. This makes the theme generation much faster and fixes the “Connection timeout” error generated by the previous 3rd party service that we have used.

New major update?

We are working hard to release it as soon as possible. The application core is now working, but there’s a lot of fine-tuning to be done yet.  We are a small team and the progress is not so fast as we expected. For this reason we are behind our initial schedule.

Lubith has now become a more powerful editing tool!

Lubith, The WordPress theme generator has been enhanced with a major update and now it is provided with many new features.

Explore new options like the extended Typography. It includes over 400 Fonts whose various properties can be changed, expanding the editor’s flexibility. In the new version of Lubith, these are: Font Family (over 400), Text Color, Text Alignment (Left, Center, Right, Justify), Font Variant (Bold, Italic), Size, Decoration (Underline, Line-Through), Transform (Uppercase, Lowercase, Small-caps), Letter SpacingWord SpacingLine Height. Some of the Fonts contained provide support for the following scripts: Latin Extended, Cyrillic, Greek, and Vietnamese (script support is still beta).

Also, the Opacity tool is more advanced in the latest version of Lubith: you can change opacity to background, text or border (text opacity and border opacity have no support from IE8 and lower).

The background image positioning option helps you find the exact look for your design: you can precisely position an image after it’s been uploaded as an element’s background, by vertical/horizontal alignment or through pixels.

You can now enjoy Lubith’s redesigned menu: You can have your editing options always in your sight by using the new detachable, options boxes, so you can easier make the required modifications without accessing each time the main menu. Lubith is now more intuitive and interactive: it is provided with intelligent mouse prediction in order to prevent accidental mouseover.

Another available feature is the advanced theme menu customization. The menu can be centered or right-aligned. It also has the possibility of modifiable submenus.

The new version of Lubith also has an improved CSS engine. An important bug fix has been made related to links’ inheritance.

If you have any questions or problems, we provide you with new tutorials in order to better understand the functioning of Lubith and to enhance at the same time your editing skills and designing efficiency.

Please use our Tutorials and Forum services put at your disposal. We will gladly offer you the necessary support.
