T3 offers powerful control over the Joomla menu configuration and display layout via it's megamenu. One of the features of a megamenu is the ability to add icons to your menu items and so today we are going to look at to use a megamenu editing interface to add an icons to your menu items.
I'm very happy to announce the release of our November Joomla template - Ignite. Ignite is a super clean and classy ecommerce template that comes with a fully fleshed out and quite lovely theme for Hikashop.
We will also be releasing a Virtuemart theme suited for Ignite but I wanted to release this earlier so you could see the full glory.
It's a shop ... but not as we know it.
This is the first time I've worked with Hikashop and I must say it was a really very good experience. The workflow, flexibility and functionality in the free version of the extension seemed to be really well thoughtout and easy to follow. The Pro version looks even more feature rich so I guess you need to really need to make the decision on which version to use based on your project. Checkout the comparison table here.
T3 has a powerful, flexible and feature rich mega menu built into it's core. One of the features of the megamenu is the ability to include a module as a submenu item. This article describes how to insert a module as a submenu item in your T3 based template menu.
A little over a week ago I announced that I was giving away two invites to Dribbble and I got a fantastic response.
It was tough making the choice ... So without further ado, the winners are ...
Updated. Looks like I was a little slow and both Alex and Florian have picked up invites already.
As a show of solidarity for our brother and sister developers in the United States I've just released a coupon to help ease some of the pain and uncertainty of the US government shutdown.
If you use the coupon "noshutdown" you will get 35% off any of our subscriptions. The coupon will expire on Tuesday next week.
If you happened to subscribe this week - from Monday - I will add some extra time to your sub to make up for missing the coupon. Juset send me a contact email or create a ticket and I will adjust your account.
Psst ... if you are not in the United States you can use this coupon too.
If running a business has taught me anything, it's taught me that it's important to be flexible.
A few months ago I announced the retirement of the lifetime developer subscription and the start of a new 3 year developer option. In the time since then I've had numerous requests to reopen the lifetime sub and very little interest in the 3 year plan.
As I mentioned, running a business has taught me to be flexible and open to change, so in response to this "new life lesson" I am announcing the resurrection of the lifetime subscription.
I have a Dribbble invitation to give away to two lucky designers.
If you are new to Dribbble it's an invitation only social site for designers. Dribbble is an awesome resource for seeking design inspiration and also sharing your latest masterpiece.
One of the great additions to Joomla 2.5 was the Joomla update component. In the process of updating our older themes to Joomla 3 templates I have discovered that the update process can often go awry due to changes in the database from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.
Thankfully this is an easy thing to circumvent if you use the database fix tool first.

In this issue of the “How to Joomla” series I will explain how to use page class suffix in Joomla.
Joomla! creates HTML pages that use Cascading Style Sheets to control the appearance of the page. This includes things like fonts, colours, margins, and background. The CSS files are part of your template.
When Joomla! creates a page, it creates different CSS classes that are then referenced in the CSS file to specify which style will apply to which parts of the HTML page.
