JoomlArt is proud to announce a new version template framework for Joomla! 1.5: JA T3 Framework 2.0.

JA T3 Framework 2.0 is the third generation template framework for Joomla! 1.5 and above, introducing new concepts: themes, layouts, profiles.

What is new in T3 Framework 2.0

  • Introducing Profiles - a new presets feature to control template design and other template settings.
  • The template administration panel comes with a new look, split into several sections and is AJAX powered.
  • Modular code makes the template light and fast but also powerful. Scripts that are not used, are not loaded!
  • New performance features: template cache and CSS&JS compression.
  • Now the framework support advanced override features to develop a flexible front-end design, user friendly!
  • The new framework comes with a new structure - meet the new plugins to take over the framework functions!


What is hot about T3 Framework

  • An advanced navigation system upgraded by the Mega Menu, a new menu system to improve the other menu systems by giving them additional class and menu item description or slogan line, but also upgraded the template functions by adding the override capabilities.
  • Multiple layout system - index.php no longer hold module positions, layouts do! These layouts are files to manage HTML generating scripts and are built with blocks having distinctive styling and module positions.
  • Mobile Ready - made possible with device detection capabilities implemented into the framework to make your website compatible for mobile devices such as Blackberry, Android, Palm, Windows Mobile and also iPhone devices.
  • Native RTL support powered by ingenious code to switch text-direction and template styling.


Template Framework Comparison

The new T3 framework is different than the classic framework. Any usual template has the capability to manage module positions and styling classes, manage overrides, detect user's browser client, interact with the user in a certain manner, and others can give a user the freedom to chose from multiple colors or font sizes, but they all have the same structure.
