Charm Template & EasySocial 2.1.8

Charm Template & EasySocial 2.1.8

It is now early February and the entire team is occupied with the development of EasyBlog 5.2, PayPlans 4 as well as a new template brewing in store :) Read on to learn more. 

Introducing Charm Template

Till date, we have 6 awesome premium Joomla templates made available to you. Based on the feedback we received, we decided to create a new variant of our premium Joomla templates, Charm.

They say love knows no bounds, Charm template was inspired for match-making, soulmates searching or simply a place for people to make meaningful connections over the net. Seeing that the internet is still booming with new dating sites targeting difference audience every now and then, we believe that there is still a fighting chance for these social sites. 

Virtually pleasing and functionally adaptive with the latest version of Helix Ultimate framework, mobile ready and the most importantly, intelligent day and night mode built-in. Making your users presence prominent yet personal at the same time.

Screenshots above are illustration of the template. The actual outcome may vary dependent on the web browser's behavior. 

The pre-order for Charm template is going for a one-time payment of $49.


EasySocial 2.1.8 Update Available Today

EasySocial 2.1.8 contains over 100 bug fixes and more than 20 different improvements compared to the previous version. One of the new feature added is site admins could now create badges directly from the back-end without needing to access the FTP.

Here are also some of the updated apps for EasySocial 2.1.8:
Upgrading to EasySocial 2.1.8 is rather straightforward, all you have to do hit on the upgrade button found on your extension page. The one click update will be a lot quicker as it only retrieve new changes made in this update from our server.

Hey, i like the way, charm is displaying friends and people with a slightly larger photo. Would be perfect if one could show additionally some custom fields on bottom of the photo, any chance?

Congratulations on the never-ending progress! Charm looks nice. 2 questions if I may:
1) It looks from the screenshots like the user's profile cover isn't being used? Is that the intention or might it be perhaps a background image for the main block that shows their name and badges.
2) Any news on whether the prior Helix 3 templates will be capable of upgrading to Helix Ultimate.. or should we just move on to your newer templates if we want to have them powered by Helix Ultimate.
Thanks!

Yep, in this design, we plan to keep things simple first without the post cover.

We looked a the structure of Helix ultimate vs Helix 3, and I don't think there is an easy way to migrate from Helix 3 to ultimate :( This is the problem about using frameworks and backwards compatibility :(

OK fully understood re: Helix Ultimate. Happy to snap up another one of your lovely templates anyhow!

Shame about the profile cover though - my users like the individuality that can bring to their page. Hopefully designers can consider a faded out profile cover as the background image to that top information box with the name and badges in it. I know we all have our different views but I think that would look lovely and not using profile covers might disappoint many who have got so used to...

Hi great to see this improvements and that you use Helix Ultimate!

I wonder too if its possible for ES to have customised fields multi-language aware so you can translate each field easy? Or maybe ES could be used with something like Falang to make those fields multi-language aware?

So you also then could make a ES customized search for customised fields different language aware.

Is it also possible to have those ES customised fields visible/unviable settings by Joomla user groups/ACL?

Is Charm also going to have like a Zillion template overrides?
I'm really not liking Office template (100+ overrides) because of this.
I don't have a problem if there are a reasonable amount (20-30 or whatever, but more than 100?)
Managing upgrades on a template with just so many overrides is not feasible.

Office template is one of my few Stackideas purchases I actually regret.
I would readily switch to something like Charm but not if it follows the same massive override path that Office...

Hi there,

We do understand your pain managing site with numbers of template overrides. However, it is quite impossible to achieve the layout as Office or Charm template without tweaking some core files. Basically, our templates introduces new layout design of EasySocial, EasyBlog or EasyDiscuss which are different from the default component design. Together with the customization functionality from Helix, users may change the theme color according to their preferences.

We're sorry for the inconvenience and please rest assure that we'll try our best to minimize the number of template overrides in Charm template. By the way, if you have suggestion on how we can improve our template please do not hesitate to voice it out. We're really appreciate it.
