Feature Updates

UO Cosmic Theme/UO Core

  • Images can now have overlay tints applied to them. Overlay Tint Documentation 
  • Adjusted hero envelope text shadows visually
  • Iframes can now have aspect ratios set by using the new code on the iframe parent container, the class "iframe-container" and the attribute: style="--aspect-ratio-percent: 56.25%;" set on that same container. 
    The percent can be adjusted to set the aspect ratio of the contained iframe: 
    • 16:9 Aspect Ratio (divide 9 by 16 = 0.5625 = 56.25%)
    • 4:3 Aspect Ratio (divide 3 by 4 = 0.75 = 75%)
  • If the iframe needs a variable width but a set height, change this number to the height in pixels, for example: 207px

<div class="iframe-container" style="--aspect-ratio-percent:56.25%;">
