Every month, each of the major Joomla template clubs release a new template.
In this post, I take another look at the premium business Joomla templates released. This time for the month of March 2012.
There are templates from Yootheme, RocketTheme, Joomla Bamboo, JoomlArt, JoomlaShack, JoomlaXTC and Shape5 on display this month. Enjoy!
This month's template from YooTheme really shows the possibilities of the Widgetkit plugin. The front page has a large area with an image background on which your can display slideshows. These backgrounds can be changed using the template parameters. There are also cover effects for images and other effects included in the Widgetkit package.
