First post on Smashing MagazineYesterday, my first ever article was published on the great Smashing Magazine web site. Smashing Magazine is an online publication about design, coding and all things related to web development.

My article was published on the coding.smashingmagazine.com sub site, which contains hands-on tips and tutorials on coding, server setup etc.

The article is called How to modify a default Joomla 1.5 template. In the post, I describe in detail how to take the JA Purity template of Joomla 1.5 and modify the header, logo and other elements.

The purpose of the post is primarily to teach users how to modify a template. How to discover where settings are hidden and what CSS and code to change.

stian-didriksenDuring his presentation at J and Beyond 2011, developer and designer Stian Didriksen announced that he has partnered with Joomla template and extensions developer RocketTheme.

RocketTheme will be using NinjaBoard as their forum solution of choice for future templates.

Currently, the template developer is using phpbb3. The collaboration between Stian and RocketTheme will improve the feature-set of NinjaBoard and I could tell Stian was excited of the possibilities.

RocketTheme will sponsor development of NinjaBoard for a year and have put a significant amount of money on the table for that to happen.
