Support is always high priority for us and we strive to provide the best support experience our users can get. Everyday, we get a lot of support request from our forum, old Joomla! contact form and ticketing system.
Old ticketing system bugged us a lot and we missed ton of features in it to provide best support experience to our users. We've checked all support extensions from JED and finally decided to go with HelpDesk software by iMaqma.
Joomla contact form is not good enough to handle sales or support request and we failed to provide support in due time. Now everything will handle via ticket request and we don't want to miss any message come to us.
From now we've enabled a extra support layer for our Standard club subscriber! so they can easily create a technical support request through our new support system.
Last but not least

So what about all old template? we listen your voices and we'r going to update all templates to Expose3 for Joomla 2.5
Today we want to introduce completely revamped brand new layout system which will give you a new experience on controlling the template layout.
3 layouts with 2 flavors
Like previous version Expose v3 also comes with 3 layout system but with visual layout selector and 2 flavours.Fixed/Fluid you can select any of them for all this 3 layouts. You can set the template width and sidebars width by its sliders.
Controlling module flow
With this new module width controller now you can set modules width for different number of modules. Like, if you want to 20/80 for 2 modules and 30/50/20 for 3 modules you can easily set the width for specific modules and it will render the modules by your given width.
Also we’ve comes with a great idea to control modules output easily, we have added a new features in every module position called Module Styles (aka Module Chrome), controlling module output is like A.B.C!
Now you can decide which module position will load on Mobile.
Another features we’ve added for layouts which is under the layer, you can load any widgets on any module position. Widget! what is that? Keep eye on our blog, our next post is about this mighty Widget feature.
We started this week with a closer look at the overall Expose framework structure. Today we want to introduce a new feature called "Styles".
Presets are variations of the default theme which gives you full flexibility to override your default theme with few lines of CSS codes. Each preset has its own CSS file and image folder followed by its name. If you want to create your own style you just need to create a CSS file in css/ folder with your desired name like ‘black.css’ and add this name to templateDetails.xml style declaration block You’ll see this name comes into preset styles drop-down.
Custom styles and what so great about it?
As we said presets style for override the default style with “little css code”, its natural to think that’s for developer who has knowledge about css but what about the end-users who don’t know coding and want to tweak the style? Hold your breath, we are going to introduce Custom styles option, a new way of customizing the default style or presets without writing a single line of code!
If you want to add a background image/patterns in specific block, you just need to copy your image file to template’s images/pattern folder, you will see the file name inside pattern image drop-down immediately. Now just select your image file and hit Save button, your are done! We’ve added a lot of other styling option like Background color, Font color, Link color, Link hover color to make the styling process easier.
On our next blog post we will take a closer look at brand new Layout System.
Surprise! we are very proud to announce our next generation theme framework, Expose! Over the last couple of month we work hard on it and put our best effort to make a next generation theme framework. After releasing 1st version of Expose framework on April 2011 and we moved ourself to make it robust, powerful and dynamic theme framework for end-user and developers. Often people think that framework contain a lot of over bloated code and unnecessary features which slow down there site. Expose is quite opposite of that, because it based on our couple of years experience and it uses most of the best practices of web development. Its not re-inventing the wheel! it just a great toolset to develop and maintain robust themes.
Expose framework will help you to make robust, feature rich theme from scratch just like writing A,B,C! We’ll provide a series of blog post about all the features and details how Expose works.
Here is some key features:
Expose will install as library so it will not load automatically until you call it.
Complete control over styling, you can style everything!
57 built-in module position with full control on its output. Now you can decide how each module position will render and which position will load on mobile.
Fixed/Fluid layout with 3 different style.
Google font lists will update automatically when google release a new font, we've added live font preview on admin.
Mega Menu with lot of custom animation and settings
New and improve architecture for Gists, now you can add tiny features by writing few codes and load it inside module or any place you want.
Many built-in handy features like: IE6 warning, Lazyloader, Scroll to top, Modernizr, Google Analytics etc
Live Update from Joomla! Extension manager
and many more...
