speckyboyWe're thrilled to have been selected as one of the "15 Market Leaders of Premium WordPress, Joomla and Drupal Themes" by Speckyboy Design Magazine this week. There are dozens and dozens of template & theme providers out there for Wordpress, Drupal & Joomla, so to be singled out as one of the leaders in this space by an influential design mag/blog such as Speckyboy, is a great honor.

Here's what they said:

"Below is a list of 15 players in the theming industry that I personally can vouch for as they offer unique products and services. Basically there are three types of businesses that offer ready made CMS themes. Either you buy single themes on markets or from shops, or you can join a theme club and get full access to all designs on offer. Then if you need some grade of customization you will contact a web studio or a freelance developer to get your design tailored to your needs."


Reserva Template

This week, we're excited to announce the release of our latest Joomlashack template called Reserva!

We work very hard to create all these great products and your purchases, loyalty, and encouraging testimonials motivate us to work even harder.  To loosely quote Mike Mulligan from the loved children's book, when so many of you are watching us, we strive to work much harder and better.

This is a perfect time to say how proud I am of the Joomlashack Team: Amanda, TJ, Forest, Shawn, Jeremy, Gary, Christopher, Casey and David.  Just last month this great team launched an unprecedented 4 Joomla templates, 3 Premium Wordpress Themes, 3 New Professional Drupal Themes, the awesome Joomla Extension Lifestream, and a whole batch of new courses, classes and Joomla video tutorials for the University.

This month, we launched the cool and refreshing Cascada Joomla template, the ultra modern Nuvo Joomla 1.5 template, a free Wordpress Theme, a free Drupal Theme, as well as updates for Lifestream, and more Joomla lessons for the University.

Again thank you, and please keep watching us as we'll be launching more top-notch templates, themes, and training materials to help you with your online presence.

Joomlashack and Joomla Birthday SaleWOW, time flies! It's hard to believe, but almost five years ago, on Sept 1st 2005, Joomla was officially launched. Just a day later, on Sept 2nd, Joomlashack was founded.

Like Joomla, we've gone through some big changes since then, especially the past year or so--a new team, new Premium Joomla Templates, launching Joomlashack University, releasing new Joomla Extensions and now our own Wordpress Themes & Drupal Themes, too!

Big changes, indeed--but one thing that will never change at the 'Shack is our commitment to bringing you the very BEST Joomla (and other CMS) products at the very BEST value anywhere.

We want to thank you all for making Joomlashack so successful these past 5 years. Here's to another 5!

Wordpress for JoomlaWe recently released a very informative, in-depth training lesson in our Joomlashack University on how to set up and use the Wordpress for Joomla! extension by corePHP. Wordpress for Joomla! is a powerful new Joomla extension that allows you to use Wordpress blogging software inside your Joomla website. With Wordpress for Joomla, you can enjoy the best blogging platform integrated with the best content management system available. You can even use Wordpress plugins and Joomla modules all at the same time, on the same blog. It's amazing.

In this new Quickshot preview of Wordpress for Joomla, JSU instructor Forest Linden gives you a very brief overview of just a few of the many cool features that Wordpress for Joomla! has to offer.
