ZOO 2.4 BETA released

Today, with a bit of pride, we are happy to announce the release of our ZOO 2.4 BETA. As promised we worked hard the last weeks on making ZOO work with Joomla 1.6. And here it is running on both, Joomla 1.5 and 1.6! In this post will shed some light on the new Joomla 1.6 version and take a closer look at the new features.

Ready for Joomla 1.6

We had already plans to make a major overhaul to ZOOs underlying framework with the 2.4 release to increase its flexibility. So it was the perfect time to take it for a test drive with Joomla 1.6. To achieve compatible with both Joomla versions we added a new abstraction layer between Joomla and the ZOO. This makes it possible to have the same ZOO version running on Joomla 1.5 and 1.6. This means all functionalities of ZOO for Joomla 1.5 are also available in ZOO for Joomla 1.6. We have not yet fully embraced all of Joomla 1.6s new capabilities but this new framework will make it possible to take advantage of e.g. Joomlas ACL in a future update.

19 Themes for WordPress

Since our WordPress club launch back in October we are now happy to feature 19 WordPress themes! All of our designs from Phoenix in June '09 to the latest design Spark in January '11 are now available as WordPress themes.

All themes are cutting-edge and built with our latest powerful Warp 5.5 theme framework. We made sure all themes have the features you have come to love from our Joomla! templates. For example, we've integrated all theme settings like style presets, custom fonts, CSS/JS minification and update notifications.

Specially the powerful menu and widget systems will enhance your WordPress website. The dropdown menu items can be setup with different widths and number of columns. Further you can choose from various styles for the different sidebars which are displaying your widgets. Also you can easily manage whether to display a sidebar on a particular page or section of your WordPress website. We think this core feature gives you even more control to layout your website to create individual looking pages. By the way all themes come with an ajax search as a core feature. Isn´t this great?
