Echo Template Released

It has been hectic before and after the release of ConverseKit while concurrently performing multiple testings for Echo on different browsers, perfecting and tweaking some minor styling issues, and without further a-do, we would like to present you with Echo template. 

Let me briefly bring you through what are some of the main highlights of Echo template: 

  • Lightweight and agile
  • Clean and sophisticated design
  • Mobile friendly
  • Rich media oriented 
  • Works out of the box across all our Joomla extensions


Below are some screenshots of Echo on EasySocial:

What are the factors and considerations to take into account when considering the benefits/tradeoffs of using Echo Template on mobile vs Web Mobile Template App?

Mobile template allows you to have a native-ish template when browsing the site with a mobile device while the echo template is just like a standard template but responsive

Pornhub really? That is something you consider appropriate for your first template release?

It's a demo site :| I think someone must have added those videos. It will be erased now.

I'm not seeing how you can log into the Echo template demo with a demo account... Is there a basic username and password that will work?

There is a quick access module that allows you to login, http://take.ms/uQ01b

Thanks. I looked and didn't see it. It would be nice if it were available from the other component front pages - not just ES.

You could set any extensions that you want as your home page But what you see on the front page now contains a module to require user to login or register.

Great clean and modern template. But The Echo template main menu (header) "jumps horizontally"/flickers every time you navigate to new page. Are you going to fix this? This makes the site look very ... flickerish/annoys viewers.
Win 10/Chrome.

Hello Torgrim,

Hm, I cannot seem to reproduce this. Could it be that because of the hero image, it's causing the flicker effect since it is loading the image?

Where are you connecting from?

I have the same issue.
When loading the page makes something strange as when loading, load first in vertical during one instant and then continue normally.

Hey guys,

We finally managed to reproduce this and we will be releasing an update after this long weekend holidays (Chinese Lunar New year) with the updated Echo template.

Hi, I can't buy Echo template with Lunar discount. I'm automatically forwarded to paypal website, hence there is no place tu insert the coupon code.

LUNAR25 coupon code does not work with Converse Kit. Is $79 already discounted price?

I'm pretty sure that it's not a question You should ask me

Hi Rafa,

I just added that comment underneath yours cause it's kinda related. Sorry!

LUNAR25 only works for single purchases of EasyBlog, Komento, EasyDiscuss, EasySocial and ConverseKit. It's not applicable to items from our app store.

Hi Mark,

How does the Web Mobile template work? Install and you're done? No settings and ES auto switches to mobile template if the community menu is loaded in a mobile device?



Yep, that is correct. Once the mobile template package is installed, whenever users on your site browses the site with a mobile device, it get's activated automatically. No settings required

Hi Mark,

Quick question regarding Converse Kit. I am looking at it as a support chat for non-logged in users, can it be done? Like I have Departmental Users and those users will be made available to non-logged in user but if they logged in they will see more of their friends?



Not currently Jackson, but we do have plans to improvise this in the future once we decouple this from EasySocial

Hi Mark, stupid question. Once ConverseKit is decoupled form ES… When this happens you can still use it with ES if you want right?

Yep, we are planning to decouple it in a way that it will work without any integrations or with integrations. When it is integrated with EasySocial, it will inherit the behavior from EasySocial.

If it doesn't have any integration, then their contacts will be with everyone on the site since there is no "connections" or "privacy" between Joomla users.

Cool! I am looking at using tawk.to but I would prefer ConverseKit when it's fully developed since it was designed for Joomla and of course another stackideas product. Awesome!
