Security Fix! EasyDiscuss 4.1.11 Released! Addressed possible unrestricted file upload vulnerability 馃攼

Wanderer - The Stable Release is Here. It's FREE!

Wanderer - The Stable Release is Here. It's FREE!

After all those arduous process of beta testings and bug fixing, we are proud to announce the stable release of Wanderers. This is the first Joomla template that the Stack Ideas team have actually developed; and who can tell whether it's the only template or not? :) 

For those of you who's still in the dark, Wanderers is a free Joomla template that is fully responsive and is compatible with EasySocial, EasyBlog, EasyDiscuss and Komento. You can view Wanderers in action here

Here are some of the updates that were made after the beta testings : 

Compatible with Joomla 2.5

Prior to the stable release, Wanderers actually doesn't support Joomla 2.5. After some in-depth study, our designers were finally able to make it so that Wanderers is compatible with Joomla 2.5. However, I personally and strongly suggest for our users to upgrade their site's Joomla! version to Joomla! 3 as Joomla 2.5 is nearing it's end of cycle

Compatibility with EasySocial 1.3

We admit, we've overlooked some issue with EasySocial 1.3. This turned out ugly when, during the initial release of Wanderers beta, it's not really compatible yet with EasySocial 1.3. Those issues, however, were fixed by our awesome designers and now Wanderers is working very well with EasySocial 1.3.

Revamped User's Toggle Menu

Another major improvement for Wanderers is the revamped user's toggle menu. We've made it much more simple for users to view the menu.

Apart from the menu being revamped on desktop view, we've also updated the menu on responsive view.

Not only does we've revamped the menu, we've also made the notification module to be visible in the responsive view. 

Standardised Rounded Avatar

As you've might have noticed from the previous screenshots, all of the avatars have been set to a rounded avatar. The avatar applies to all pages, including the Activity Stream and User Profile page. 

There are tonnes of under the hood stuffs that we've fixed, making Wanderers as stable as an the the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre building.  

Finally...

Having said that, we're now proud to announce the release of Wanderers, the First Joomla Template by Stack Ideas. Wanderers is now available to our active subscribers via the dashboard page. The team would like to share the happiness with our users and thus have decided to create a coupon code to celebrate the release of Wanderers.

Seeing that Wanderers works very well with our components, it would be just right for us to share a coupon code that is applied to all of our products. However, this just doesn't cut it. Hence, we've decided to provide you guys with a coupon code that will give you discounts on your Bundle purchases. Yes, even though the Bundle packages were already discounted, we're more than happy to share a coupon code than will give you a discount on an already-discounted bundles. Let's call this, discount-ception! :)

Here's the coupon code :

WANDERBUNDLE20

It will give you a 20% discount to your new bundle purchase only.

If I were you guys, I'd make haste to the Bundle page and purchase all of the bundles...!

Excellent template guys! Great job! Really appreciate your generosity on this one

P.S. I preferred the Stream items without borders from the BETA over the new stream items with borders... but those are details

Thanks Jannik. Ah, the details! I'll forward it to our designers; I don't really have the 'detailed eyes'

You guys should have a menu item for it on the demo site. Anyways, well done! Looking beautiful.

Thank you Josh!

Awesome!

Thanks Justin!

Wait, Justin-ception?

Sweet! I have an upcoming project this will be perfect for. What I like most is the menu and submenu level set-up you have in this. I always try and put this type of menu/submenu in my sites because I've found it to be the best way to navigate social sites with so many menu items. The fact it's already set-up this way is going to make it even easier to set-up a site.

Also, you guys are going crazy pumping out some great stuff. Don't forget to catch your breath once in a while.

We're breathing through our skins so that it won't hinder us from pushing awesome stuffs for our users. :p

Thanks John. Glad that we're able to assist you in any way that we can. Perhaps you might want to share that awesome site of yours? Who knows, I might put it in our showcase.

just installed it. I'm getting a horizontal scroll in FF and Chrome on Mac. Didn't have this with the beta

Hi Paul,

That's funny. I'm using FF and Chrome on Mac, too. Didn't faced the bug that you've shared. Would you be kind enough to share your findings in our Wanderer's official forum? You can reach it here.

@Ahmad Justin my testing server only has Stackideas products plus latest jreviews and kunena. I resolved this with css but I'd like to know if I'm the only one. I will post my fix at the link you mentioned.

EXcellent-thanks a lot.

You're welcome.

Thank you stackideas staff,
its beta or final release ? on my dashboard its beta !

It's the stable release. Ah, this must be due to the fact that we missed out on the dashboard's banner update. I apologize for this! We were so overwhelmed with the release that we totally missed out on this. Anyway, it's fixed! You can download the stable version of Wanderers from your dashboard.

Thank you Ahmad

Still says BETA in the banner's title

It also list ES 1.2 and that it's not ready for 2.5.

Ah, we must have forgotten to update the banner. Sorry! Should be fixed by now.

it is stable

Hi all,

Does this template is based on a framework?

Thanks,
Best regards,
Jose A.

Hi Jose,

I was informed by our designers that the template is based on Bootstrap 3.0.

Great job!

Not work template, error:
JInstaller: :Instalar: Fallo copiando el archivo /home/policiasnacionales/www/tmp/tpl_wanderers_joomla_30/index.php a /home/policiasnacionales/www/templates/wanderers/index.php

Hi Jasonargo, have you share this finding with our team? You can do so via our Wanderer's page here.

Nice, but the logo can not be inserted in place of the writing?

This would be great, im waiting for this, too.

In the template's index.php file, between lines 40 and 41 add the following:

[code type="xml"]
<?php if ($this->countModules('logo')) { ?>
<jdoc:include type="modules" name="logo" style="logo" />
<?php } ?>
[/code]

Then, create an HTML module and use "logo" as its position (helpful hint - after typing "logo" into the position box, hit enter on your keyboard for it to actually save the position), publish and save.

Add this to your custom.css file in templates/wanderers/css/

.theme-nav{
background: #F57D62;
}

Under"<div class="brands pull-left">" , add:

<?php if ($this->countModules('logo')) { ?>
<jdoc:include type="modules" name="logo" style="logo" />
<?php } ?>

EDIT: Sorry - this was a reply for Eugen Salnikov.

Thank you!

Everything is fabulous but customizing. Probably I'm spoiled by Gavick and JoomlaShine. Also more documentation would be nice to have.
Anyway, congrats StackIdeas team - it's yours first template!

That is because Stackideas focus on performance. Keeping everything light. There is a custom.css file so you can customize all you want without losing your changes

Yeah, I've got your point. Actually that's what I thought. On other hand - it's a bit like turning back to the stone age.

On the contrary, it unlocks a total freedom by the use of a more advanced customization method which is leaner. That said, I do understand that some people aren't as comfortable with css as others.

However, if you install firefox with the firebug and firepicker addons... and spend an hour on http://www.codecademy.com/ learning basic css... you suddenly will feel empowered rather than limited

Totally agree with Jannik. Joomla is already framework heavy and some of these template club templates are bimbos. Pretty on the outside but that's about it. If they add "baggage" then they are making your site suck. Bimbos with baggage = unhappy. Do you really need 40+ module positions? Do you really need another framework that is little more than adding baggage to bootstrap and then renaming it to lineup with the name of the template club? Or worse they are adding yet more css and...

Do you really need another framework that is little more than adding baggage to bootstrap and then renaming it to lineup with the name of the template club? Or worse they are adding yet more css and yet more javascript. Take a look at the lines of css code that come with a basic joomla 3 installation. It is massive.

Well, it seems like each one of us has different point of view and priorities. I agree with your approach making everything as light as possible. Technically speaking. On other hand, I know at least 3 different and more pleasant ways of spending this hour cheers!

You are correct, my friend. We all have different priorities and appreciate different sides of things... and there definitely are better ways to spend our time than discussing light vs. customizable backend too much... and I am sure Stackideas will take your feedback into consideration. They always do

I would like to use the template only if I can not place the logo .... I'm just sorry for what the rest looks nice and light. Just a template to be taken into cosider

@marco two ideas for you: 1) you could go into the template manager settings and turn off the heading title and heading caption. This will also remove that top bar space which might be desirable for some for saving vertical real estate. Then you could recode that position with your logo image. 2) Alternatively you could turn those off and then put your logo into a module position.

Any documents or at least backend account for demo site could be great!

You can reach Wanderer's documentations here. Wanderers is a front-end Joomla template and doesn't tamper with any Joomla's backend so I'm not quite sure whether backend access is needed for the demo or not.

what about easyblog 5? when will beta or some information, any new integration with easysocial???

We're in the midst of developing EasyBlog 5. We'll inform you once the beta testing programme is ready. Thank you for your support, Vladimir.

how can i prevent the "index.php" file to get not overridden on an update? i have some modifications in this file and want not lose this all the time when i update wanderers.

Hi n00bster, thank you for your inquiry. I believe it would be best if you consult with Wanderer's support team via the official forum here. They would be more than happy to assist you with this.

I also have modifications in the index.php. I just use ftp and manually upload all the new files but I just dont copy over the index.php
