At Joomlashack we have been working hard pouring over the new 1.5 templating engine and are looking for community input for what templates you would like to see run on 1.5 natively.

New QuickLaunch Template Installer

New QuickLaunch Template InstallerRecently, we've begun (somewhat silently) adding QuickLaunch Template Installers to our products for public download. As of now, we have completed the installers for Vintage and Lightfast. This is a pretty cool idea which began with the Shack Packs, but these allow you to install the latest version of Joomla! and set up your demo content in just a few clicks. This will hopefully alleviate the common "Why doesn't my template look like the demo" confusion. If you own a Joomlashack template and want to make use of the QuickLaunch Installer, it won't be long before we have them all updated and ready. Hope you enjoy.

Web Standards Checklist

I just read a great article by Russ Weakley at Max Design titled "Web Standards Checklist". It is a checklist to help you evaluate your site for compliance with web standards. This is a great tool for any designer to help in the design of standards-compliant Joomla! templates. If you are not a designer, this is a great tool to help you evaluate potential templates for your website. The checklist is available in several languages.

Smoothing Screen Fonts in Windows

Often times in the forums when someone has a display problem with their template and I can't replicate it from my Mac, I usually ask them for a link or a screenshot of the problem. I must say I am very surprised at the number of users who are still operating in Windows XP with ClearType disabled.

If your fonts look ragged or almost pixellated, you may be able to make your eyeballs a lot happier by turning on ClearType.

I highly suggest you run this tool for tweaking your display preferences. There are alot of other resources out there as well.
