New Social Widget

We first use social widget on our premium template Matheno and merged the social widget into core. Now you can add Facebook, Twitter and Rss icon anywhere in your site.

New font re-sizer and word formate widget

We've implemented 2 more new widget for accessibility. Font resizer will allow your visitor to increase or decrease the font size and word formate will break the word into pieces for better styling.

Bundle installer


From our initial release we observed user often forgot to install the system plugin and activate it, sometime the forgot to install the framework too. As a result website won't show up and it lead them to frustration. So we decided to make a bundle installer which includes the default Expose template for J2.5 and J3.0 + Framework + Associated Plugins. From now you don't have to worry about the installation and activation of dependancies.

Brand new base template!


Not only the framework we updated the base template with modern look and feel. It pretty much a FREEMIUM template has all premium facility but FREE! Expose base template can be used as a skeleton of your next project/template and all code are commented in stylesheet.
