The Wright Framework Works with Joomla 4!

Hey, Wright (Almost) Works with Joomla 4!

Here at Joomlashack, we use the Wright Framework to build great Joomla templates.

Wright currently works perfectly with Joomla 3 websites.

However, we had no idea whether it would work on Joomla 4. After all, Joomla 4 isn't even in alpha yet. And future Joomla updates have always been complicated. Surely the move to Joomla 4 would be difficult?

We were wrong. Moving Wright to Joomla 4 was surprisingly easy.

What is the Best Joomla Page Builder?

What is the Best Joomla Page Builder?

At a recent Joomla event, a Joomlashack member asked me a really interesting question:

Do you recommend using a page builder to use with Joomlashack templates?

By "page builder", we were talking about extensions that allow you to design Joomla pages using a drag-and-drop interface.

I admitted that I hadn't used the page builders enough to give him a good answer. So, over the last couple of weeks, I downloaded and tested several Joomla page builders.

Here's an introduction to some of the most popular page builder options:

How We're Improving the Admin UI for JCal Pro

Improved Admin UI for JCal Pro

We released today JCal Pro 4.2.5, a new version of the best calendar component for Joomla.

Over the last few releases, we been improving the admin UI, so that JCal Pro looks more like the core Joomla UI.

In general, we think that extensions should look like Joomla, rather than have their own, completely unique design style. This makes it much easier for users, who don't have to learn a new interface.

In this post, we'll give you a quick summary of how the JCal Pro backend evolved during the last updates.

How to Create Template Overrides for Joomla Plugins

How to Create Template Overrides for Joomla Plugins

Despite being tremendously useful, template overrides for plugins are a type of override that is barely known in Joomla community.

There is no way to create this type of override from the Joomla backend. It is a completely manual process. Template overrides for plugins are intended for extensions that output content in frontend. This means just a few plugins are ready for this feature.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to easily create plugin overrides in Joomla.
