As a bit of a light hearted end of financial year competition I announced late last night the Best avatar competition on our forum. The idea is that all you need to do to win a 12 month subscription to our Joomla template club is to say hi on the forum thread and the best avatar in the thread will win the membership. The competition is open to existing as well as non members so if you dont currently have a membership you can sign up for a free account on our template subscription overview page.
I really enjoy working on our forum and seeing the personalities that come through the photos and images that our members upload - a lot can be read and mis-read from someone's avatar. Web design forums can sometimes be overly technical and faceless places so avatars are a great way to build personality and add colour. There are a few folks on the forum that have them lifting a glass of beer to the camera - that never fails to make me thirsty :)

While doing a bit of research into some K2 functionality recently, I came across a few posts on the K2 support forum requesting lists of templates and extensions that support the K2 component. We have been working pretty intimately with K2 since the start of this year and so I thought Id post a rundown of which of our Joomla templates and extensions that are K2 compatible.
We plan on adding K2 support to most of our future Joomla template releases and extending the Joomla modules that are currently K2 compatible as well.
Im really happy to be able to show off our new icon for the Zen Grid framework. The icon was developed by the amazingly talented Parthiban Mohanraj who creates incredibly detailed and immaculate icons. Check out his folio over on Deviant Art for some more examples of his amazing work.
There are a few more columns that I will be putting into play in the table but for the time being its ready to be used as a reference for both our club templates as well as our free and club Joomla extensions.
But one of the features that I really like is the ability for the user to print an invoice has been processed by the system. This means that you have complete access to your records and you were able to get a personalized account of what you have spent throughout the life of your membership.
It has been quite some time since we have had any sort of price change here at your Joomla Bamboo - in fact when I look at my records its been well over two years since we have had any change to our pricing structure! So with the new site launch as well as the coming new year we thought it was about time that we made a few changes.
The biggest change is the introduction of incentives for renewing members which will see a dramatic saving on some of our subscriptions when you renew your membership.
With over 46 templates on offer what can we tempt you with? Since the launch of Joomlabamboo way back in 2006 we have created a wide range of pretty spectacular templates. Simple, clean lines and elegance come as standard with all our work.
Joomlabamboo has created templates for online shops, magazine style, portfolio sites and of course blogs. With the latest introduction of a template for the Admin section of your site, we are continuing to simplify the Joomla experience, both for you and your clients.
Welcome to Joomlabamboo 2.0! Yesterday we unveiled and relaunched the next iteration of the Joomlabamboo site with this fresh new design and a whole stack of new Joomla goodness.
This has been a major project which probably started around 12 months ago when I first started to sketch out a redesign but has involved hours or reworking and recoding - not to mention the preparation involved with moving a site of this size.
