Our team is kicking off 2024 with the release of Aurora 3.0. The new version is a blend of significant, long-awaited updates and fine-tuned improvements – all designed to elevate the look and functionality of your online store.

Without further ado, let’s walk you through the highlights.

Radiant – new theme style for jewelry brands

Aurora 3.0 debuts 'Radiant,' a theme style crafted specifically for jewelry brands. Its product-focused design, complemented by soft color tones, beautifully highlights the elegance of various jewelry pieces, from rings and bracelets to necklaces.

Experience the charm of the new style by visiting Radiant demo store.

The next part of the update allows you to transform in-store browsing into an interactive journey by using Featured navigation. When hovered over, navigation items turn into scrolling lines, each paired with a featured image and a clickable button.

This unique feature will guide visitors effortlessly through your collections, enhancing engagement and overall experience.

Interactive image slider

The introduction of the Image Slider in Aurora 3.0 adds another tool to your visual storytelling arsenal. Engage your audience with captivating animations and a timeline-style layout, perfect for showcasing new products, seasonal looks, or special offers.

Blog post slideshow

In response to multiple requests, we’ve also expanded the list of layouts available for the Blog posts section. With the new version, you can present your blog content in an engaging slideshow format, making it more appealing and accessible to your audience.

Enhanced testimonials section

The Testimonials section has been upgraded with several layouts and new functionality. The new settings allow you to resize a background image, display reviewed products, and add detailed information about reviewers, thereby bolstering the authenticity of your customer testimonials.

Optimized color schemes

In our effort to provide more versatile customization options, we’ve introduced a new color scheme, refreshed some default colors, and rolled out additional pickers. This gives you greater control over your store's aesthetic and enables more precise customization of minor theme elements.
