I'm gradually going through the existing template base and adding their relevant Zenkit demos and so the next cab off the rank is the Arcadia Zenkit demo site.
If you missed the announcement yesterday, Arcadia is a beautiful new design created by Glenn Thomas aka The Fox and the King. It's a beautiful T3 driven theme with a stack of goodies under the hood - check out the feature page for more details.
I'm very happy to announce the availability of our April Joomla template release - Arcadia.
Arcadia is a fun and creative responsive Joomla template that features an awesome header design from Glenn Thomas aka The Fox and the King. Glenn has a unique visual style and after meeting him a few months ago in the new studio space I couldn't wait to put his style into a Joomla template for you. I'll be publishing an interview with Glenn in the next few days so stay tuned if you want to find out more about this amazing Melbourne artist.
Arcadia is built on the T3 framework and features a tonne of theming options and some very flexible functionality. It's built to be compatible with our new Zenkit v2 release (Demo coming soon) so all of you K2 fans out there will be able to drop Arcadia into an existing or new K2 site without any trouble at all.
I've just unwrapped our latest Joomla template and it's a little gem.
Zenhost is a clean and simple business template built for those of you who sell your goods, products or services online. It's a flexible theme built with bootstrap and T3 and comes with a slew of features and options to make it your own.
Theme magic is a non-destructive real time preview tool for your T3 powered website.
Theme Magic makes it possible to create a multitude of theme presets and colour schemes by using a colour wheel or specific HEX values in order to manipulate pre-determined elements within the template.
Zenbase is a vanilla / skeleton / blank / scaffold (or anything else you want to call it) Joomla 3 Template. It is a free Joomla 3 template that is an ideal starting point for your next project using Joomla 3 and T3.
Please note: The Live preview of the Zen base theme features the Zentools module however the free quickstart package does not include this member only extension.
Inspire is a versatile responsive Joomla template that combines dark textured / grungey backgrounds with sharp bevelled lines and an array of elegant typography. It is our second Joomla template compatible with Joomla 3 and built on the T3 template framework.
(If you missed the news about our move to T3 check out the Zen to the power of T3 blog post from a few weeks back.)
A very mega Mega Menu
Inspire is also our first template to feature the incredible T3 mega menu.
The T3 mega menu has an intuitive visual interface that makes building complex menu structures a breeze. You have full control of the width, size, columns, rows and content of each menu item or block of items, which are all controlled via an easy to use visual interface.
I'm very happy to announce the availability of our first Joomla 3 Template release.
I've been wanting to do a third and responsive version of our popular Grid and Grid2 templates for soem time now and thought that the release of our first joomla3 template was a good time to do it.
Grid3 is a beautiful bootstrap and T3 powered (read about our recent change here) Joomla template which is the perfect companion for any artist, photographer or image based web site. Iyt has some incredible functionality built in courtesy of T3 and is fast, lightweight and responsive.
I'll be writing more in the coming days about our new workflow with working woth Joomla 3 and bootstrap but for now check out these important links below:
Earlier this month I spoke about the Melbourne Joomla day that will be held on the 19-20 January in 2013 and I hinted at a developer focussed session I will be running based on the Zen Grid Framework, Zentools and Zenkit.
This session is in addition to the talk I'll be giving about more general templating strategies during the conference program and will focus on getting into the nitty gritty of developing Joomla templates using our framework and other zen products.
I'm happy to announce the release of our December Joomla template - Collector.
Collector is an all in one Social media collecting / streaming theme that can pool and display content from your favourite social media sources.
The activity stream can source content from all of your favourite networks, including:
The stream itself is easy to control via the template administrator with the ability to limit the total number of items displayed as well as the number of items displayed froma particular source.
Don't like it skinny? or not so social?
The demo for the Collector template shows the activity stream in a reasonably narrow frontpage with slightly wider sub pages. I'm quite fond of thinner page layouts but if you like them wider, thats easily fixed by changing the width assigned to the front page of the site. Equally if you don't need to tell the world about the stuff you like, then you can easily disable the activity stream via the template admin.
We were late again.
If your subscription ran out between the first of December and the 13th of December and you would like to get a copy of this template - please email us via the contact form and we will put you in touch with the files.
Joomla 3.0 and Zen Grid Framework 2.4
As you can see our timing is a little bit out with this release and so it's placed us a little bit behind with our longer term tasks such as Joomla 3.0 compatibility for the framework as well as updates for all v2 themes to v2.4 to take advantage of some of the new features. These are all coming and I still hope to start rolling out the first Joomla 3.0 themes out before the end of the year.
I'll post an update regarding progress on this in the middle of next week to keep you all in the loop.
