Sneak Peek - A Promising Social Extension for Joomla!

Sneak Peek - A Promising Social Extension for Joomla!

If you ever get the chance to use EasyBlog, EasyDisucss or even free Komento extension you know the quality of their product. All of their extensions are well thought and professionally crafted. Our Blog and Forum also runs their product and we are extremely satisfied. Recently they announced for a new Social extension and I believe that will be another top notch product like EasyBlog and EasyDiscuss.

After seeing their screenshot and talking with them I can say it's a true rival of Jomsocial and Community Builder. I'm really excited to integrate this EasySocial in our template and Expose framework.

Welcome to new ThemeXpert powered by Expose Framework!

Welcome to new ThemeXpert powered by Expose Framework!

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.

 

Branding

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.

More usable and fast site

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:

Most awaited support forum

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.

New pricing and licensing

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.

Extensive documentation

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.

Summary

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 v4.1 - Brand new configurator and performance tuning

Expose v4.1 - Brand new configurator and performance tuning

Expose Framework the engine empowering our themes got a major update which deserved a blog post to highlight new features and updates.

Configurator options and versioning

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!

configurator.jpg

Performance boost up

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.

Fully translatable admin panel

Expose admin panel is fully generated by Javascript (read jQuery) and there was some problem translating the admin panel. In this release we fixed the issue and now Expose admin is fully translatable. We've got some translation also and we'll include it with our next release.

Other fixes

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.

Update and implementation

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.

You can compare the changes and download it from Expose main page

jBar The Joomla Toolbar Getting Awesome Everyday!

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.

 

We are a small team and its not always possible for us to add new features frequently in FREE product as Premium Joomla Templates & Extensions is our first priority.

Today I'm proud to announce that we've introduced some cool new features into jBar 1.4 which deserved a blog post.

Menu based loading

b2ap3_thumbnail_jbar_menu_based_loading.png

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.

Enable/Disable for Mobile devices

b2ap3_thumbnail_jbar_mobile_onoff.png
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.

Joomla3 fix

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.
