The October edition of the Joomla community magazine has just gone live and in it this month the design team have published an interview with the brains behind the new templating engine for the Ninja Board forum component. Ninja Board promises to be somewhat of a revolution for Joomla forum components which are notoriously difficult to theme.

While the stable release may still be a little while off it's great to see such effort getting put into the front end aesthetic for components for Joomla. One of my bug bears for a lot of third party components is that integrating them into the global template design is time consuming - so it's awesome to see such consideration being made from a front end point of view from one of the innovators in the joomla extension marketplace.

The interview is also worth checking out if you are curious about the Nooku framework which forms the core code framework that Ninjaboard was built upon.
