Finally we are very glad to release Crunch as a social business template for Joomla 2.5 and 3.x. Though we promised to release a major template on the first week of every month, but we very much apologize for being late. Releasing template has delayed due to server problem and new site launching.
Crunch has a number of eye-catching preset styles by default. But, with its potential style manager anybody can customize these preset styles according to one's needs and demand.
In this majestic template we have applied some of our familiar extensions, such as Parallax slider, Xpert slider, Xpert tab.
We created a brand new portfolio template for k2 and you can see it from K2 category template dropdown list. Without any configuration just save the category and start adding your item out of the box.
As you are expecting that the template will give you support about social networking needs, in that case Joomsocial will satisfy you.
We are giving a 15% discount for Crunch, valid till 3th July 2013. Just use CRUNCH15 as your coupon code at checkout.
After several months of hard work we are proud to launch our new site, wowhoo! If you follow our blog then you may know we've announced to launch our new site on last year announcement. As a small team its hard to keep maintain the release schedule and redesigning work as its tons of work believe me.
Finally we made it! and we are really excited about our new site. Here is couple of excited things we’ve made from ground up.
We are now with a new vivid and colorful logo which reflect our passion and what we really want to be. We’ve been following a philosophy since the beginning ‘Excellence is pixel’ and the new logo reflect it well.
The main goal was for the redesign is to make the site more usable and fast. We’ve also re-engineered the flow of content and navigation menus hopefully getting you to what you are looking for quicker and allowing for an easier checkout. All of our pages are now newly colored and coated noteworthy pages include:
Since our site hack we took down our forum and promised to bring a new powerful one. Instead of going for a typical forum system we decided to make it like question answer approach. The problem with the typical forum is, topic can easily floated and really difficult to find the right answer. Now you can vote for a reply and mark answer as solved so others can easily find the right answer. Instead of too many categories we simplified it with some main category and using tag based architecture.
We announced it earlier that in order to provide better support and improve quality of our products we are going to increase our membership price a little bit. Also from now there is no domain restriction, you can use our products in as many as domain you want. But we are going to impose restriction in support, we will provide support for those number of domains which belongs to your membership type. For getting a better overview please go to the pricing page.
What will happen to the Classic members? Well, Classic subscribers can still use our site and download the Premium templates/extension. We are not allowing any new subscription only.
From the beginning there is lack of documentation. This time we were much attentive to this issue and result is very subsidiary for our members. Now whenever a problem will arise documentation is always there to assist with its vast content. We introduced tutorial & Joomla A-Z section to provide support for general queries. We put a lot of effort in our new documentation and it’s completely rewritten and restructured.
Now it’s time for you to taste and make your opinion about our new site. We appreciate any feedback on how we can improve it more. If you find any bugs please don't hesitate to tell us so we can fix them.
We are giving 15% discount for the new launch, valid till 13th June 2013. Just use 'NEWTHEMEXPERT15' as your coupon code on checkout

Expose Framework the engine empowering our themes got a major update which deserved a blog post to highlight new features and updates.
From now you can save your template settings and rollback to any previous settings on the FLY. After installing the new template and framework you will notice a new white button on the toolbar and a beautiful popup will come after clicking it.
This feature comes really handy when you want to test couple of style and font settings and rollback to previous one without remembering the previous one. Also you can copy the settings file which save as
.json format in your
templates/configs folder and use it to other Expose powered site!
Performance is common concern for a framework and we are not exception of that. We have gone through our code again and we found some scope to improve the performance. We've tuned the widget architecture and really amazed about the performance improvement!
Here is the result of first loading Expose Base template:
First load (Before) : ~2.66 seconds
First load (after improvement) : ~0.15 seconds
Well that doesn't mean your website will load under 1 second. We've tested this on Expose base template which is pretty simple at this point and the benchmark is based on the execution of the template by calculating start and end time.
We've also fixed some Joomla 3.1 issues for jquery loading in admin template as well. We've tested new features of Expose extensively. If you found any issue please report to our issue tracker and we'll fix them asap.
We've already started to update our template and quickstart package with new version of Expose framework. If you have modified the template heavily you have to do this :
1. Download and install the framework.
2. Open templateDetails.xml file from template and add this line (highlighted in yellow) and make sure you've followed the sequence.
Its been around 6 month we released our own jBar - Joomla! toolbar extension and we received a lot of positive feedbacks and suggestions. As always we've listened all the suggestions and bug reports through Twitter, Facebook and Emails and fix those bugs as soon as it reported.
Today I'm proud to announce that we've introduced some cool new features into jBar 1.4 which deserved a blog post.
Now you can load jBar on only home page or specific page you want. This is the most requested features we've heard from Social Media and Emails. Still you can load jBar site wide or limited it by providing menu item id.
As a hardcore smartphone user i know how much bothering is to see a popup or toolbar on a small screen. I just leave immediately from the site and i guess there is a lot of user like me around the globe. So we decided to give a option which will disable loading jBar on mobile screens.
Color chooser problem in Joomla3 is also fixed with some admin style adjustment.
We do not asking your money, jBar is a FREE plugin and if you found it useful, please post a rating and a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory which will encourage us to make more good FREE extensions for Joomla.
I'd love to show you what we are cooking right now in our lab. Its a 'Delicious' responsive Joomla! template best fits for bar, restaurant, coffee shop, as well as, pizzeria websites. If you want to make your cookbook and review site, 'Delicious' would be your choice because of special K2 templates. Its worth to mention that we are using our own bootstrapped Virtuemart template which we used in our previous Vibration ecommerce joomla template.
Delicious is our March 2013 template and demo preview will available when release.
Happy New Year! we kick it off with our first 2013 Joomla Template. As i said in my previous post that, we'll release a major template first week of every month but before going live we upgrade our server for better performance and speed. I apology for the late release which we were not anticipated.
