Our most advanced ‘Joomla Vortex’ (multi-colour) template is now online
Today is the official release of the pre-announced ‘Joomla Vortex’ template. There are several attractive new characteristics added to the template that distinguish it from the other free Joomla templates offered on the Themza website.
With the Vortex Multi-colour Joomla template we are coming very closer to the professional Joomla templates that costs money… and yet, this is not our final word!
1. This is our best Joomla template so far and you have the possibility to choose between 5 different design color schemes: red (default), blue, green, brown and black. To make use of the color theme change functionality you have to ensure first that the params.ini file, which is a part of the template archive, has permissions for writing on the server.
To enable this through FTP, you must click on the remote file with the right mouse button, select Set Permissions or Change Attributes from the context menu and specify the corresponding write permissions. For the majority of servers 0775 would be OK, but some servers also require 0777. After you have successfully done these settings, you need to go to Extensions->Template Manager in the Joomla Administration panel, click on the template and change the Color Variation from the select box in the Parameters section.
2. Unlike our older Joomla templates, here you have Grey footer area divided to two pre-defined sections – USER 1 and USER 2 (those are contained by default in the Joomla script). These sections you can use to post Latest News, Archive, Polls, etc. Until now, this had been possible only in the left column of the template.
3. Also new is the default TOP area, containing (by default) the Newsflash1 module, which will be shuffling news information, but can be replace with custom module, which can present, for example, some welcoming text. The module is located at the top of the banner, the font is white colour.
For the moment we are trying to stick to the default areas integrated in the Joomla script, we plan to create our unique areas shortly, which will be available to the users, as long as they re-create them in their control panels.
Our newest template will have almost the same characteristics, with one new area added – Right column. The development of this template is almost completed and we will present it to your attention shortly.
