Joomla 3+ Template
Our Joomla template release for June 2016 is a Joomla 3 update of one of our favourite templates in the catalogue. Highline was originally released in October 2012 and quickly became a favourite amongst our users. This design has been used for such far afield subjects as an online petshop, to a high level mathematics website and beyond. More
Be a highline hero ...
Highline features the new Hero slideshow from our Zentools2 module. The Hero Slideshow uses some slick sliding effects to transition the various slideshow elements onto the page. It's ever so pleasing to view the title, text and read more as it slides in and out of the page. It also features the full width title navigation making it a very impressive slideshow design indeed.
Isotope and masonry filtering
Another addition to Zentools2 is the implementation of an isotope driven layout. The isotope layout uses your item category or item tags to render a list of items that when clicked filter the visible items int he layout. In addition to this the items are stacked neatly (or as neatly as possible) into the grid to allow the jigsaw effect you see on the front page.
Striking page and category views
One of the key elements of the Highline template are the way that standard Joomla content pages are handled. You can easily feature an image on the page by adding the item image to an article to have it display in the background container of the article.
Article with an Joomla item image
Standard Joomla category views have the choice of using the featured image layout
by adding an image to the category description.

Get started faster
Highline2 also comes with our new and improved quickstart packages.
Rather than add the full documentation and feature overview for Highline we have provided a quickstart package that will definitely provide you with a quick start to your next project. It's built around a common site structure with relevant categories and pages for services offered, work down, a meet the team section with a contact form.
Experience superb page speeds.
The above page speed result was tested on a standard content page on the Highline demo, with some small tweaks to the default template settings and our standardised .htaccess file. The final speed of your site will depend on a number of factors but Highline has been optimised to remove the most common speed issues caused by your Joomla template.
