30,000th Template from TemplateMonster with a Nice Promo

Hey guys, would you like to get a freebie? And would you like to be able to point at something in a store and just say “I want it” to be able to get it right away and for free? I think everybody dreams of it. And today is a miracle day when you can take things you like absolutely for free (in fact you can do it during two days: 10th and 11th of August)! Well, almost for free because TemplateMonster.com gives you a chance to choose one of 3,000 corporate design products without having to pay for them. But this promo is valid on one condition: you should buy any template from TemplateMonster.com (including those lovely Joomla 1.5 templates that we’re so much crazy about).

30000th-template-templatemonster

Anyways, what is the reason for such a generosity, you will ask. The reason is clear and it’s very nice. On the 10th of August TemplateMonster – a web templates provider – launches their 30,000th template! The theme is really fantastic. It is a Flash CMS template powered by FlashMoto CMS. But this is not the one zest of the theme. The template is made using Papervision3D technology, which will make a website based on it extremely dynamic. So this template is a reason for the promo under which you buy any template from TemplateMonster and may then choose a present out of Powerpoint templates, Logo templates, corporate identities, Iconsets and logosets.

Well, put off all your affairs and hurry up to buy a perfect Joomla template (other themes from TemplateMonster are awesome too so don’t turn away from them) with a pleasant additional free product.

Joomla 1.6: Is it so good?

Recently I have read post about the troubles that will met any sure who would start building it’s website using Joomla 1.6. Here are some points, quoting the author:
6 reasons why you should not wait for Joomla 1.6

1. Uncertainty
No one knows when it will be released. Not even when the beta version will be released.
2. Instability.
When Joomla 1.6 is released, there will be a lot of patches released before the software is stable enough for a production site.
3. Incompatibility.
Because Joomla 1.6 has a lot of new functions, your favorite extensions will not work as is. They will need to be updated and tested to  utilize the new Joomla 1.6 ACL functions, removed sections, nested categories etc.
4. Lacking support
The support for new software will obviously not be as extensive as with established software.
5. Missing documentation
Most likely, the documentation for Joomla 1.6 will not be released at the same time as the software itself. It takes time, and someone has to do it.
6. Incomplete language support
Most languages will not be ready at the time of the Joomla 1.6 release.

Ok, we agree with that language problem but I think that Joomla has really great community and it’s not gonna be a problem to make a professional translation. About uncertainty – actually it’s not a big problem because there are many good examples that show us value of really good products that were created with really huge time resources, so we just hope that 1.6 will be very good. As for extensions – of course it is normal that new software requires new extensions and I don’t think that all Joomla 1.5 extensions were released same day day with 1.5 version.

To cut a long story short – we are still believe that new 1.6 version will be something really awesome despite all those pessimist forecasts.

Joomla Is Getting More Social Friendy

Google announced that Google Friend Connect features are now available for the Drupal and Joomla content management systems. This means that content publishers using these platforms can integrate Google’s product, which basically turns your site into a mini social network.
“The social gadgets can be placed anywhere in the site using the standard Drupal and Joomla administration interfaces. Site owners can moderate reviews and comments, create new polls to collect information about community members, and then advertise on the site using that information. The newsletter feature allows site owners to create and manage their newsletters using Friend Connect’s interface, and site members can subscribe and unsubscribe as desired using the newsletter gadget.” says Globant’s Mauro Gonzalez on Google’s Social Web Blog.
The Google Friend Connect integrations with Joomla include next features:

– Interest Polls
– AdSense
– Newsletter Subscriptions
– Featured Content
– Gadgets (like Members, Comments, Recommendations, Activities, Reviews and the Social Bar)
