Over the weekend I made available our May Joomla Template release - Grid4. As the name suggests it's the fourth incarnation of our popular Grid series of designs, and it is the first template to be released using the new Build.r child theming functionality.
Yesterday I released an update to the Build.r template that adds the option to turn any of it's rows into a smooth scrolling parallax driven display. Parallax is one of those design "innovations" that you either love or hate, but one thing for sure is that users and clients love the option of being able to use it if they can.
I like the judicious use of the effect and think that in some cases it can work well to push your point. But please, I must ask that you use the Parallax in the Build.r template responsibly ....
I'm super excited to announce the availability of the Buildr theme.
This template has been a long time in the making - the first seed was sown after christmas at the end of last year. And while I had hoped to have this release in time for March, March came and went but I think the final product will be all the better for the delay.
This is a pre-announcement for the official release on Monday but I couldn't wait to share the template with you and also update our members on a few things.
Things have been a little quiet on the blog for the last half the year and for an update on what's been happening at Joomlabamboo please stay tuned for a forthcoming State of the Union blog post. I'll be announcing some new things for 2016, giving a run down on what's been happening - including this new blog design and more.
So while you wait for that blog post let me introduce our December Joomla template - Corporation.
Just a quick note to let you know that we have just rolled out releases for all of our Zen Grid Framework v4 themes. There are a range of fixes in these releases and the framework has been updated with some minor fixes and additions so please check the changelog for an idea of whats been updated.
You will need to compile less to css for some of these changes to take effect.
I've just released the August Joomla template for our members and I hope you will agree that it is a beautiful design indeed. Gazetta is a minimal-ish multipurpose magazine or news theme that makes good use of the Joomla article image to create interesting and unique designs on a page by page basis.
The home page features a complex module layout that is typical of content heavy news or magazine layouts.
I'm very happy to announce the availability of our Joomla template for July.
Boost is a lightweight and fast responsive Joomla template built on our very own Zen Grid Framework v4. It features subtle textures, clear typography and an array of built in colour schemes that will suit your personal design portfolio, photograpy or business website.
It's also not too late to take advantage of the 30% off coupon we announced when Zentools2 was released, Simply use the coupon "zentools2" on our checkout page to take 30% off your next subscription.
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.
I've just released our March Joomla template (Ecolife) which is a Joomla 3 and responsive update from one of my personal favourites.
Ecolift was originally released in 2011 and proved to be a popular choice among businesses looking for an environmental, earthy and elegantly grungy 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.
This update adds two new features to the framework and a stack of improvements and a number of bug fixes.
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'm happy to announce the availability of our latest Joomla template - Venture.
Venture is a responsive flat design that suits a number of purposes. You can use it to create a Joomla business, blog, news or magazine site. It's blazingly fast out of the box and also provides you with an enormous amount of control for creating the perfect layout and theme control for your next project.
This is a somewhat belated post announcing the release of our Rasa2 template ...
Rasa2 is an elegant minimal design built on the Zen Grid Framework v4. It's a simple theme that provides some refined clean lines with nicely balanced white space, which is ideal for presenting your content or your products in style.
Rasa2 is a fast and lightweight responsive template and comes with all of the features of our Zen Grid Framework v4 themes, including a simple Mega menu, responsive layout tool, a range of responsive tools for controlling how your site behaves across different screen sizes, asset optimisation and more.
