I would rate myself an “Intermediate” Joomla user. Someone who has a
good understanding of it….but someone who is certainly not a code
creator…and certainly not someone with the skills to develop an
awesome template, especially a CSS compliant one.
made the decision to migrate an integrated phpBB forum on my Joomla
site to the SMF forum system and as fate would have it, at the same
time, I spotted the Simplicity template at JoomlaShack….and wanted it!
the site off-line to perform the forum transfer, I extended that ‘down
time’ by around 36 hours. ThatÂ’s all it took to get most of the site
migrated thanks firstly to JoomlaÂ’s template system, but mostly to the
template itself, the instructions and ease of use.
Simplicity template is superbly put together and what impressed me even
more was the amount of support material that came with it…backed by
exceptionally prompt responses to questions in the JoomlaShack forum.
Not only were detailed instructions provided on how to use the
template, but a complete tutorial on how to alter the template also.
ItÂ’s nice to see an approach (to what is a commercial product) that
recognises a need for flexibility in user requirements.
compliance, fluid design and a great look to my site were all things
IÂ’ve been working on for ages, but something that was always going to
be a laborious Â‘work in progressÂ’. The Simplicity template has allowed
me to immediately address many of the issues IÂ’ve been working on for
quite some time.
IÂ’m exceptionally pleased with the template,
the fantastic support and guidance…but mostly, I’m just really happy
with my own Joomla site and how great it looks! Thanks Compass!
