We are preparing something very special for the Joomla community, especially for those guys who are dealing with Joomla templates. There are many Joomla template frameworks available today, but we will try to incorporate some unique features in our new framework. The working name of the framework is "Sparky".

This template has been developed with Sparky Framework. However, many of the framework's features in the template backend are intentionally disabled because the framework itself has not been 100% finished. We are still making decisions what features to add, what to enhance and what to remove. Hot Blankie template will therefore be our pilot project. This clean template will be a playground where we can test our new framework's features in various situations.

Using Sparky's great features, we've spent only several minutes to make this Joomla template from the design. With Sparky, you would be able to develop templates that fast too! Stay tuned...

jquery noConflictjQuery is powerful javascript library. Almost all of our extensions are based on that library (Top Menu, HOT Image Slider, HOT Newsflash, HOT Joomla Gallery, HOT Joomla Carousel, Lightbox, Font resizer, more are coming...). However, many Joomla extensions from other providers use other libraries (mooTools or prototype).

Using them together on a page will probably make conflicts. As a result, some or all of your extensions would not work.

However, we have found a solution. Our Joomla extensions use "jQuery noConflict mode". Therefore, with our templates, beside our extensions, you can also use other extensions from other providers based on other libraries.

Unlimited color options! Select colors and make your template unique! This is useful if you want to match the main template color with your company logo or brand. All our templates come with several pre-defined color schemes.

colors

To get to the parameters in your Joomla Admin go to: Extensions > Template Manager and click on the template name. Beside many other parameters, here you can select colors. The template colors can be selected using a handy palette tool or entered manually in hexadecimal format (combination of 6 letters and numbers). If you don't have Photoshop, Fireworks or similar application, Color Combos can help you to find out the hexadecimal code of your color.

Change few options in template parameters and... Boom! You got template with completely new experience!

Newer versions of Joomla (after 1.6) have a nice new feature in template manager. It's possible to save multiple template styles! If you are using a template that has many parameters (like our templates), and you wish to use different template settings for Page A and Page B, it's now possible. Please read Joomla template styles from our Blog to learn more about this.

seo optimizedYou don't need a nice website if Google can't index it and position it higher in search results.

All templates based on the Sparky Framework are well optimized for search engines. The template code is valid and passes W3C Markup Validation. There are no inline styles. All CSS code is in the external stylesheet files, even those that's dynamically created. You can check that by looking at the source code of the template demo.

Unlike older versions, newer Joomla versions are well optimized for SEO out of the box. Joomla now use H1 and H2 tags for headings, allow you to enter descriptions for each page, make SEF links better and has many other advantages for semantic HTML code and better SEO. Joomla and Sparky Framework are the best combination for your better ranking!

This template has support for 18 module positions. All module positions are collapsible. If no modules are published on some module positions, those module positions will automatically collapse.

There are some specific positions. The <LOGO> shows company logo and it's not a classic module position. The settings of this position are in template parameters. The <CONTENT> is a position where actual Joomla content will be shown.

module positions

This template has a fast-loading jQuery based top menu with nested sub-menus. Sub-menu opens with a nice animation effect. Core Joomla files are not hacked. Module position User3 is reserved for the top menu.

The vertical menu placed to the left side column here is a classic static Joomla menu with support for sub-menu items. You don't have to change default menu parameters for this menu. Menu type should be set to "list". You don't need to type anything in Menu Tag ID, Menu Class Suffix or Module Class Suffix fields.

This information is not important if you are installing template using our HOT Start package. In this case, all parameters are set.

About Typography:

This page represents typographical aspects of the template. Take care about your typography to make better user experience for your readers. How to achieve that?

  • Learn more about typography, escpecially about the most often used codes, such as <p>, <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <img> and <a>.
  • This template has valid XHTML, but if you want to keep it like that, you must learn and follow the XHTML principles. Also, if some of your extensions are not XHTML valid, pages based on this component would not be XHTML valid as well (no matter if template itself is valid).
  • Familiarize yourself with CSS styles that comes with this template.
  • Never copy/paste directly from layout text editors, such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice. Try to paste text in plain editors first (such as Notepad).
  • Use a WYSIWYG editor that comes with Joomla or install a better editor, but always check your code in the editor's HTML mode.
