The Summer 6-in-6 Challenge
Most Joomla Template companies launch just one Joomla Template each month, however we dont feel that 12 templates a year is enough. So for the past few years we have made the promise to our clients to launch more than 20 per year. That's almost twice as many as our competitors and we should be happy and proud of that huge acomplishment. However, every once in a while we go a little crazy - - it may be the heat or the humidity, and being the gluttons for punishment we are, we decide to push ourselves even harder and launch 6 new, reliable, and exciting products in as many weeks.
6 New Products: 4 Joomla Templates and 2 Joomla Extensions to be Launched during the next 6 Weeks
If you recall, we failed our last 6-in-6 challenge. The last template we launched in the challenge, the exciting and revolutionary N6, was delayed and we ended up launching our 6 Joomla Templates in a period of 7 weeks. This time we have made the challenge even more complicated because we will be including two Joomla Extensions as part of the 6 products we will launch. Stay tuned during the next 6 weeks as we embark in this difficult undertaking.

Vintage is one of our most loved Joomla Templates
I don't know exactly what it is. Perhaps it's the timeless design, or the simplicity with which the module positions allow the designer to tell his or her story, or maybe it's the incredibly versatile antique look to it, Vintage has been a perennial bestseller loved by web-designers the world over. If you are a Developer Club Member, download it for free now.
A good thing got even better - now built on the Wright Framework
The Wright Framework is a major upgrade and outstanding value added to our Joomla Templates and the websites built upon it. The name is in honor of the famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright and his minimalist style. In a Joomla Template, the Wright Framework is like a combination of a foundation and a blank blueprint. A solid and versatile foundation to build upon, and a blank and empty blueprint upon which the web designer can create his or her masterpiece.
Formula Joomla Template is a Recipe for Success
Give your website a healthy start by using the right Joomla Template - - the right Formula. Joomlashack's Formula was built using the reliable Wright Framework. It comes with 6 cool colors each in light and dark versions and with some cool CSS3 animations.
Formula, your Clean and Minimalist Canvas
Doohickeys, doodahs, and gizmos are all nice and well when you want them, but sometimes you need a nice, well diagramed and clean space to communicate an idea properly and without distractions. Formula will not get in the way of your master plan. It provides the developer with an almost perfect, pure, and minimalist canvas. It can be molded and designed to fit a great selection of themes.
Great New Joomla Course added
This week we don't have a new lesson for you - instead we have a brand new course, Using Akeeba Backup.
You need to learn how to properly backup your site
Last week I promised 12 lessons and over 90 minutes of easy to follow videos across 15 different topics. Thanks to them, you will never have an excuse for not having an up to date backup of any of your web sites.
Shackslides it now dices and slices
We are as excited about our new updated version of Shackslides as the host of an infomercial is about his Ginsu knives. This practical and reliable slideshow module has been used already in thousands of sites. It's one of our best selling products - - one being bought with almost every template we sell. What I'm getting at is that it was already a great product and now it's even better.
I'd like to take the opportunity to let our readers know of a current open conversation about the future of Joomla's User Interface, or UI as it's commonly referred to, and invite everyone to share their input should they wish to.
Some of you may already know of Kyle Ledbetter's work over the last few months to bring modern standardization to the Joomla admin interface, an effort that many of us are very grateful he began. For a peek, take a look at the screenshot above - yes, that's a possible Joomla admin interface!
Due largely in part to Kyle's efforts to incorporate the popular Twitter Bootstrap framework for use in standardizing the UI and presenting a set of tools for developers, Joomla's Production Leadership Team (PLT) has asked of the larger community what their desires and preferences for the adoption of an underlying framework be.
I invite you to read what Kyle has written in a summary of his overall goeals, and to head over to the JUI forum discussion to share your input.
