This is a Plone theme with responsive layout for improved user experience on mobile devices. The theme comes with lots of great built-in options, templates and features to make it easy for you to set up and, if you like, redesign your website. Included is the default darker "rain" skin as well as a "sunny" version which can be activated via the theme panel, so you’ll basically have 2 themes in one!

Read on and try out SunRain on our Plone-demo website.

The newest release is suitable for Plone 5. Pay atention that Plone 5 is still new, so some extensions are not available for it yet.

It uses CSS3 media queries to switch between different layout configurations at smaller screen sizes. This way the design seamlessly reshapes itself without any loading delay.

You are no longer bound by limitations of the browsers, mobile devices or desktops.
Customizable logo and header image to brand your business

Two Display Skins "Sun" and "Rain"
Basically you receive two designs and use the one that suits your needs.
Portal Slogan

You can have your content on the left with a portlet on the right, flip that around, adjust their width, have portlets on both sides or even remove them altogether.

I try to install on fresh Plone 5.0 (5011) installation: it does't work.

Nice theme, but the css drop rules, if you change something in the portal_css grouping, can lead to strange results.

I am just trying it on an homemade webserver before implementing on my site.
I find it is an actual improvement from the basic Sunburst Plone style, with improved functionality. Also the rendering on mobile devices even with 3" displays is great.
