Vanilla Template Released

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all Beta users for feedbacks and taking the time to submit bug reports during the beta testing period.

Ah it will be a new design for your site I have misunderstood.

It's actually a new template like what we did with Vanilla :p

It is also a different concept altogether.

Joomla Templates have been a thorn in my side for years.
Vanilla looks great, is easy to manage and is pretty darn flexible!
Lots of nice bells and whistles with out being bloated.

Thanks SI Team!

Is there any coupon for black friday?

  1. Mark    Monthon Kooyathbenjarong

You can find the coupon here Monthon, :)

  1. Gary Leigh    Mark

Does that coupon cover the new Vanila template?

  1. Mark    Gary Leigh

Hey Gary,

That coupon is only applicable to product purchases and not on items on our apps store.

Soon a new template, then you just go out Vanilla ! :o

im wondering, how the new Templates would look with Helix Ultimate :P the stable Version will be released on 25th january.

On my sight, it's a satisfaction to see joomshaper and stackideas work perfectly together. Also with the SP Page Builder, site owners have the possibility to create amazing sites. Both companies have passion to create amazing and easy useful things.

I just got back from the Joomla World Conference and had some lengthy discussions with the team from Joomshaper. The transition to Helix Ultimate should be pretty easy because they would also need to update all their templates too.

There is going to be some quirks of course but we're still waiting for updates on Helix Ultimate :)

Is it a three column layout - as in can you have full width pages and then a page with a right hand sidebar and a left hand sidebar? I see conversations page for example has a right hand sidebar but can this be removed easily?

  1. Mark    James

Hm, not really sure what do you mean here James. Mind elaborating more on this please?

  1. James    Mark

Sorry mark I should have been clearer here. Notice this page here: for the conversations and notice the right hand sidebar module area. Is there a simple way to hide the right hand module area and have the page be full width.

  1. Mark    James

Hey James,

Yep, if you don't have any modules there, then it would expand accordingly :) To illustrate this, try accessing now.

  1. James    Mark

Super, I think I may just give this a try :)

  1. Mark    James

Yep you should :)
