I've just released our April Joomla template for club members. Responsive2 is a Zen Grid Framework v4 update for the very popular and perhaps original responsive starter theme we released all the way back in October 2011.

Responsive2 is a fast, light weight and minimal Joomla template that is designed with enough flavour to use straight out of the box or for you to use as a carefully prepared canvas ready for your next masterpiece. Like all of our other Zen Grid Framework v4 themes it's lightning fast, comes with a tonne of features and a beautiful interface to hold it all together.

Ecolift was originally released in 2011 and proved to be a popular choice among businesses looking for an environmental, earthy and elegantly grungy theme.

A modern grunge based theme

Ecolife steps up where Ecolift left off. It's a modern revisioning of the grunge / textured design idea, maintaining the same soft grunge elements and minimalism that people loved in the original, combined with the added focus on performance and responsiveness.

Following the release of our Venture Joomla template late last week I have just released updates for all of our other Zen Grid Framework v4 (ZGF4) based themes - Xero, Rasa2, Focus2 and Venture.

Since the release of Xero - our first theme on ZGF4 - we have had numerous requests on tips for how to apply a full block of colour to specific rows of modules. As of v1.2 this is possible from within the template admin and without adding any new custom code.

I write this blog post as an update for our members who might be curious about what's going on at Joomlabamboo.

TLDR: Don't worry we are still here and we are still innovating, we have just been a little delayed.

Joomlabamboo as you may or may not know is a small business. By small I actually mean very small when measured against other template club standards. It's primarily myself doing design and development, with the tireless support of Rob and Paul working on our forum and ticket system. Rob also works on code development amongst his other freelance committments.

It's pretty easy to see why it gets such a good wrap from alot of different types of Joomla users. I think if I was starting a blog today this Easyblog would be my firm choice.
