How is JA Fubix - the Joomla template for news & magazine in RTL language layout style working out for you guys? The weekend is over and while the new week is approaching, RTL version of JA Smashboard - Joomla template for entertainment and the Joomla ecommerce template - JA Hawkstore sure will keep you guys busy. Yup, they are now officially RTL language layout compatible.

JA Hawkstore is our first Joomla 2.5 responsive e-commerce template for the year 2013, featuring Virtuemart component. Not just the default Virtuemart, but better with free add-in product slider module and a bonus feature for the shopping cart.

JA Hawkstore runs on our latest T3 Framework, which provide you with the options to control layouts in desktop or responsive layouts.

Have you ever been on a website and just can’t figure out how to navigate to a certain page? Or perhaps suddenly been frustrated by trying to find the navigation bar after reading through countless comments or posts down the page. Not only is this annoying but often happens even more when using a mobile device or tablet, and is more complicated to remedy.

I have, and these problems while small, really bother me and countless other users too. Navigation is among the most important features in web design and focusing on it’s development will be a huge trend in 2013. To help improve the users experience and improve customer satisfaction we have recently incorporated Sticky Navigation for Desktop and Off Canvas Navigation for Mobile in JA Argo - responsive Joomla 2.5 / 3.0 template based on our all new T3 Framework , as well as in T3 Framework.

Overview of web navigation

A. Traditional navigation

In the past we would see all kinds of links listed on the top navigation bar. First we would scroll down to read the article, information, or blog post then have to scroll up to find the navigation bar located at the top of the page. Let’s be honest, that is one annoying and inconvenient thing to have to do everyday of your life.

Gangnam, Obama, Syria, Greece, Israel, London, Hurricane, NASA, Whitney Houston, Gunmen, space jump, God particle and a lot more keywords to summarize 2012. For us in 2012 the keyword was responsive design as most of our work has been impacted by RWD. Besides, keywords like JA Elastica, JA Wall, T3v3, J! 3.0 are also popular keywords popping across our social channels.

We're here with another post on one of the greatest features in T3v3: ThemeMagic. If you guys have installed the latest T3v3 version, you probably already have had the chance to test it.

What is ThemeMagic?

In short, ThemeMagic lets you customize your JoomlArt T3v3 based Joomla! template without having to search for the right file or without diving into the code, one can manipulate most of the template's CSS properties right from the ThemeMagic backend. Video says it all :
