The feature request that is by far the most requested is for our template to be responsive.

Well, the wait is nearly over and we are very excited to announce the imminent release of our Responsive Template for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.

The new Responsive Joomla Template is based on the same module positions as the original so you’ll be able to upload it into your existing sites and, with minimal adjustments, have a fully responsive site in no time at all.

And for new sites this will be the simplest most easy to use Responsive Joomla Template you’ll ever use.  No hard to understand frameworks.  No bloated Code.  Just simple, classic Joomla development that you know and love.

Stay tuned for more info.

Afternoon folks!

We’ve just made the latest version of our Joomla Blank Template live for download.  If you are an exiting customer you can download now.

Nothing major on this release, added a few lines of basic CSS for some core Joomla elements including Tabs & Sliders, Featured and Category Blog Articles and some basic table styling.

Keep those feature requests coming in!

Thanks to all you templaters that have purchased, your positive feedback has been amazing!

Happy Templating!

The Custom CSS Module has to be my most favourite design oriented joomla extensions of all time. Yup, quite a statement but if you haven’t heard of this little module then stand by for a treat.

Put simply, the module allows you to add custom CSS to any menu item or article. That’s right,  you can add different styles to different pages of your Joomla website without the need for changes of template (or template styles in J.1.6+) for specific pages.

Fo example, say you wanted a different background image for each of your menu pages it’s a complete breeze with this module.

It’s an absolute storming bit of kit this mod and is almost a default install on every new site I build.  Check out the guys who put this together Hyde Design  – thanks to you!

The following joomla tutorial shows how you can use this to great effect  – in this example we have a different background image for each page of our website.

Enjoy, feedback and happy templating!

Hey There!

This tutorial is not specific to our template – this technique can be used on any Joomla template or any HTML/CSS website.

In this video we show how you can easily add a background colour to a website or add a background image to  a website.

With a little help from our good friend FireBug and a little cut and paste its a breeze to give your website some real character!

Enjoy!  Jak
