Shape 5 have released a new theme and they were a little late, a day I think, but I am later. I'm still trying to catch up after Christmas, so I apologise.
This theme, as the trend is going this way, puts the focus back on Joomla and I like it when this happens. Don't get me wrong, I like themes that come ready for other extensions, but sometimes we seem to forget that Joomla is the system we are using and most sites rely heavily on a decent theme for the actual CMS.
It is called Clarity and I'm guessing because everything is quite clear. There is a new image slider module for the frontpage (or any page) that enables you to control any number of products, if you want to use this theme with something like Virtuemart or for you to display specific pages on your site - you control it so you decide.
Some, but not all of the features:
- 100% tableless CSS
- Validates with XHTML 1.0 Transitional
- Validates with CSS Level 3
- Joomla 1.5 only
- SQL dump available
- Unlimited possibilities, you define site colours!
- 27 module positions
- New! S5 Image Slider
- New! jQuery powered menu system
- Edited frontpage article layout
- Sliced PSDs included
- Site Shaper available (Joomla install that includes demo data)
- Fully collapsible module positions
- Set background images and colour via theme parameters
- Lytebox enabled
