Often these queries can be a great source of information about what your visitors want:

  • They show you what visitors really want: You may think people want "pink widgets" but search terms might show that people really want "blue widgets".

You Can Now Get Easy Updates for the Wright Framework

Wright Now Supports Joomla Update System

The Wright framework is the base of our Joomla templates

Wright is bootstrapped, responsive and lightweight. You can learn more about it and why it's unique in a world of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink bloated frameworks. You can also download it for free from this page.

Despite it's lightness, like many Joomla templates, updating Wright was not a straight-forward and easy process. You had to update Wright manually, by downloading the latest version from Joomlashack. So many of our customers never saw the benefits of Wright's updates and bug-fixes.

We have just released Wright 3.2, and this version uses Joomla update system. It now super easy to update your template when a new version of Wright is available.

Read more about what makes the Wright Framework unique.
