The JoomlaExpo in Chicago last May was so fun, our friends at the Content Management System Association (CMSA) decided to do it again this December in lovely mile high Denver!
You're invited to the 2008 Winter CMS Expo, to be held at Denver's historic Brown Palace Hotel on December 4th and 5th. Joomla! will be the spotlight CMS, with Joomlashack's own Barrie North and Tom Elliott presenting.
We're excited about one of our more popular template designs, Lightfast which has just undergone a huge update.
We've added 2 more gorgeous themes as well as completely overhauled the CSS structure, making it easier to customize than ever.
Lightfast is one of the only true source ordered templates for Joomla! This means, if you use this template we guarantee better SEO.
Lightfast is perhaps our most unique template available. We're confident you won't find another Joomla! template like it in terms of SEO, usability, and accessibility.
