Modern theme - a quick overview
This article aims to describe key features introduced by the recently launched " Modern" theme for event pages and how they differ from the current "Classic" theme.
TLDR: No action is required for your existing events. You can also continue to use the existing "Classic" theme for your future events too, but the newly introduced "Modern" theme introduces some additional benefits over the "Classic" theme.
What is the "Modern" theme?
You now have not one but two theme options to choose from when you create your event registration pages. The newly introduced theme is titled "Modern" while the existing theme is now called "Classic". Apart from look and feel differences between the two themes, the Modern theme also introduces a more minimalistic and seamless registration experience compared to the traditional stepped registration flow of the "Classic" theme.
- Improved control over the presentation your your event's cover / header images across all devices and screen resolutions.
- Event details are no longer overlaid on your cover art avoiding any distractions.
- A modern and minimalistic embedded registration experience that is faster and more seamless for attendees
- More responsive and universal design that ensures better compatibility across all engagement channels.
