The CB Team is proud to announce the release of its first Joomla / CB Template combination, named MyCommunity. This light, lean, tableless design, inspired by the popular facebook look, will make your website super efficient in terms of loading time, size and cleanness. MyCommunity is offered commercially at 20 € and can be purchased and downloaded from Joomlapolis.
Before you rush to grab your copy, let’s take a closer look at what is actually offered.
The package contains a Joomla 1.0 template, a Joomla 1.5 template, a CB 1.2 Template Plugin, the new CB Content module, detailed documentation for Joomla 1.0 and Joomla 1.5 environments and the license agreement.
The Joomla templates are installed just like any other template on your website. The clean design and light fully CSS implementation makes your Joomla site super fast and efficient. The actual Joomla template package is only 39K in size! We have fully configured 2 template demo sites so you can see the entire package in action. MyCommunity on a CB 1.2 powered Joomla 1.0.15 website can be seen here and MyCommunity on a CB 1.2 powered Joomla 1.5.9 website here. We have also added Typography pages to these demo sites here and here.
The CB 1.2 Template Plugin is installed as a CB Plugin from the CB Plugin Management panel and once published, it will add another option to your ‘Community Builder Template’ parameter in your CB Configuration User Profile tab panel. This new ‘mycommunity’ option will change the look of your CB Profile page. See sample profile pages on our relevant demo sites here and here.
The new environment can take advantage of the new CB Content module, used to present available CB Profile actions as nicely formatted links in a Joomla module. You can check this out by logging on in our template demo sites using the demo/demo username/password combination. On the 2 demo sites we have installed, in addition to CB 1.2, uddeIM 1.6 and Fireboard. This way you can see how our MyCommunity environment works with these extensions also.
Both Joomla 1.0 and 1.5 template versions can be parameterized for fixed-with and variable width appearances. Template parameters are exposed as permitted in Joomla 1.5 environment and can be modified in template HTML editor for Joomla 1.0 template cases. We have included extended documentation regarding the installation of MyCommunity and have also included instructions to make changes to the templates to satisfy your specific esthetics and needs. Additionally you can contact the template designer, Jacob Hodara and request professional services for further modifications.
