Huber is a modern multi-purpose review theme that allows you to
create a powerful and interactive review site. Huber has the edge
over other review themes because of its unique and powerful hub
A hub is a post or page that contains information for a
particular item (e.g. a game, movie, holiday destination). Each hub
can have tabs (Reviews, News, Images Videos, Forums) that show
content related to this item. Reviews, news, videos and images
associated with a hub will automatically display under the relevant
More Key Features
Huber has been specifically designed for BuddyPress so you can
create a great looking social network.
bbPress is known for its simplicity and ease of use. Huber
keeps all that and has completely redesigned bbPress to give you a
great looking forum platform.
Front-end and Social Login
Huber comes with an entire front-end login, registration and
lost password interface so the user never sees the WordPress login
page. It also works seamlessly with the WordPress Social Login
plugin so your users can login via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc.
The theme utilises the WordPress Popular Posts plugin to
display your trending posts. Unlike most plugins or themes trending
posts are based on the number of post views over a specific time
range (last day, week etc.) instead of displaying the number of
views from all the time.
Vote Up/Down Posts
Huber allows you to vote up or down any post/page and order
items by most likes.
Profile Link/Notifications Counter
Huber gives you the ability to add the logged in
userâ€™s profile link to your menus and add the
BuddyPress notifications counter beside it so users can keep track
of whoâ€™s sent them a message, friend request
Multiple Advertisement Areas
Huber allows you to add leaderboard ads in the header and
footer of the site which are fully responsive.
Multiple Page Headers
Select from multiple types of page header including standard,
fullwidth and full page. You can also add videos in the header as a
background or a playable video.
Ajax filtering allows you to move from page to page without
reloading the page improving page load time. You can also filter
posts by category, date, comments, views, title and date range.
Huber comes with Theia Sticky Sidebar plugin (worth $18) that
allows your sidebar to become permanently visible so it moves down
the page as the user scrolls through the content. This great for
ads and other information that you want to keep in view all the

HTML5 for better search result placement, schema markup of all
content, correct use of H tags, main content loaded before

The Review comes with translation files so you can easily

Why are icon fonts so important? Simple. They are so easy to

better. Huber includes the Font Awesome library to give you nearly
400 icons to use throughout your navigation, paragraphs, buttons,
lists, and just about anything else you can think about.

simple, clean and easy to read. This is especially important if you

Gauge and The
Will my hubs and reviews work with this theme?
Yes! If you are already using Gauge or The Review themes you
can use this theme without the worry of things not working. Huber
comes with a theme converter that converts all your hubs and
reviews so everything looks pretty much like it did before. Please
note hub awards are not currently supported.
Whatâ€™s different about this
Thereâ€™s a lot of differences,
hereâ€™s a look at a few of them:
- Hubs no longer use child pages for tabs. The Reviews, News,
Images and Videos tabs are now part of the hub page. This reduces
the number of pages generated, reduces the number of database
queries and makes creating hubs even easier.
- Hubs and reviews can now be either posts or pages.
- You can now add multiple reviews to each hub item (you
associate reviews with hubs just like you do with posts).
- Hubs now include a Forums tab by default for easily adding
- You can now add multiple affiliates to each hub.
- Release dates are now treated like a proper date field so you
can order by this date, filter by specific date ranges, show only
items from future release dates etc.
- Add review results to the top of reviews.
- Images now work with CDNs and image compression plugins.
- Tons of speed improvements.
