Using this component you can have all the functionality you need to make a content-rich website or news portal with many extra fields such as article images, videos, image galleries and attachments, etc.
K2 article in the JSN Epic- Joomla 1.7/2.5
K2 article in the Beez2 Default - Joomla 1.7/2.5
Now with the new version of K2 for Joomla 1.7/2.5 , we have also added an extended style that will automatically support for the display of K2 component. As you can see in the differences between the two screenshots, in the JoomlaShine templates we have fixed the CSS bug where the star icon has been obscured. Moreover, we rearranged the article layout in a more beautiful and compact format.
Joomla 2.5, with many new features and upgrades, comes soon after the release of versions beta1 and beta2. JoomlaShine is glad to announce that we have already tested our JoomlaShine template in Joomla 2.5 and will support it when it is officially released.
Have you just landed a developer job and there are many strange, new things for you to learn about templates development? Because IT is such a large world with a huge amount of things for you to discover, that can makes you feel bewildered at the beginning. From their experiences in building Joomla templates, the JoomlaShine Team will introduce to you a collection of useful web development tools that help front-end developers create magnificent websites.
For each phase of templates development, there are 3 kinds of tools as bellow:
Graphic software to edit, slice design file to the individual image layers
Editor software for writing your template code from scratch and customize them
Debug & Test tools to customize, debug and test the websites, and to validate against web standards
When you develop Joomla templates, it does not need a lot of knowledge about web design but some basic skill is necessary for editing and slicing the layer design.
I have used Photoshop for image slicing for a long time, until I felt it was too heavy, slow and expensive for only pixel handling. That is not enough for templates development since the design files can be bitmaps or vector graphics, and often very large. I tried a different approach and realized it is a better choice than ever.
