While we gradually make our way through our Joomla template catalogue and create Joomla 1.7 template versions of previous designs, there are a couple of places on the Joomlabamboo network that you can keep aprised of Joomla 1.6 and Joomla 1.7 compatible templates.
Upgrading from a Joomla 1.6 to a Joomla 1.7 template.
The shift from Joomla 1.6 to Joomla 1.7 compatibility was actually a minor technical update for us - it essentially ionvolved changing the version number - so when you see us mention Joomla 1.7 template you can rest assured that the templates will also work on Joomla 1.6.
The change basically involves uploading the new templateDetails.xml file from the latest Joomla 1.7 Template to your current template folder and updating your version of the Zen Grid Framework to use the latest available version for Joomla 1.7.
However it is highly recommended that you update from Joomla 1.6 to Joomla 1.7 as soon as possible as along with a few nifty feature additions there was one particular security concerned that was addressed in the update. You can find more about the release on the Joomla 1.7 download page.
Five ways to keep track of our Joomla 1.7 Template releases.
The Joomla 1.7 template overview page is perhaps the easiest way to keep track of which templates are compatible with Joomla 1.7.
The Joomlabamboo demo site navigation panel has a label for each template that comes with a Joomla 1.7 template compatible version.
The documentation version information page has Joomla compatibility and latest version information in a table.
The template feature page for each template also has a label for the specific version of Joomla that the template is compatible with.
- And while we are at it the template changelogs also have version information for each specific template.
