Purity III - I am back and way cooler..

Time flies and I can't imagine that it is already 7 years since our Purity template was chosen to be the winner of Joomla 1.5 template contest. The template was later selected to be included into the core of Joomla 1.5. Purity has been the most successful template so far because of its simplicity yet flexibility. It does not look fancy, but it works seamlessly with any type of content you come up with.

Therefore, I decided that it is the time we brought back the spirit of Purity into JoomlArt. The first mock of Purity was crafted way back in the late of October 2013.

And after 3 months of hard work, today I officially announce the availability of the first version (Developer Preview) of our featured project in 2013: Purity III - The best free template in the world for Joomla 3.x. We claim it to be the Best Free Joomla template, if you are not convinced by the end of this introductory blog post, let us know in the comment section below.

Support add-ons

From this version onward, T3 Framework and Purity III allows you to load the extra style files for specific menu items. This comes in handy for the integration for the 3rd party Joomla extensions as well as having different layout styles on your site. That doesn't mean that you could not achieve it in the past, it merely means T3 Framework now makes it easier, quickier and absolutely more convenient.

Real time Theme customization

ThemeMagic tool gives you the freedom to customize your template and be able to see how those changes affect the front-end simultaneously, eliminating the process of diving too deep into the code. Not an exception, ThemeMagic in Purity III will allow you to achieve the same. Customize modules background, text, title text and title background colors, or typo in general from font size to font type, color and other settings.
