Problem: Joomla "by default" Frustrations
Have you felt frustrated when you are unable to modify some "by default" positioned elements when creating a Joomla! Powered website? Well, you're not alone -- we all have been halted by elements you cannot "move" but only style. For example, what if you want to place the title at the bottom of each article instead of having it above? Or what if you want to create more divs for higher modifications and styling?
Solution: Joomla Template Overrides, w00t!
Here is the good news: Joomla allows us to create Template Overrides, which are modifications to the Joomla components or modules, that can be done from the template, and avoid hacking the Joomla! files.
Beautiful Visuals Deserve A Beautiful Website
With this thought in mind, we decided to create Showtime, a Joomla template that allows you to display, classify, and organize a huge amount of visual information. Showtime is the perfect template to showcase great works of photographers, illustrators, videographers, creative people, creative agencies, or freelancers to name a few.

The Memo Plugin: Create a Pinboard out of Joomla Articles
Other Pinterest style Joomla Templates allow you to create your "pinboard" using modules, but we were not content with that. The Joomlashack Team put in the extra effort to create added functionality that enables this new Responsive Joomla Template to use regular Joomla articles to populate the pinboard - - see it HERE. The Memo plugin is extremely light thus avoiding innecessary animations.
