We're going to merge Alledia.com into Joomlashack.com. If you're a member of our Extensions Club, you will suddenly get 400% more value. Instead of 5 extensions, you'll have access to about 20.
Sometime in the next few weeks, Alledia.com will redirect to Joomlashack.com, and over a dozen extra extensions will appear on Joomlashack. These include some of the most popular extensions in Joomla, such as OSMap, OSYouTube, Tabs and Sliders and more.
We launched Clementine, a new template, plus major updates for Onyx, Vintage and Techie. We're also planning new versions of Breeze, Community, Optimus and Travertine. Once that's done, all our templates will be running on the Wright 3 framework.
