Because of its enormous power as a content management system, Joomla makes a natural choice as a CMS for an e-commerce site. Users who want to take advantage of that power are the target market for the New Technology template, a ThemeForest offering aimed squarely at those who intend to do business online. This template comes with many of the features that will make it easy to create a classy and functional e-commerce site. It can be licensed for your own project or, if you are a designer, you can use this template to design websites for your clients.
New Technology has three color schemes that you can use without having to change any of the coding on the site. If you want to make more exacting changes to the template, you can access the 12 included layered PSD files to do so. If you have a graphic designer at your company or if you are a graphic designer yourself, you’ll find this to be an invaluable resource. The template is also provided with the ability to switch between a one, two or three column layout, making it very flexible in terms of laying out the merchandise for visitors.
This template includes a Virtue Mart Joomla style that allows you to easily integrate this component into your website. It is also provided with a slider and uses the powerful JQuery library to create its more advanced effects. New Technology is completely compatible with all of the browsers currently being used. In the event that a user comes to the site using the IE6 browser, they will be warned automatically that their browser cannot display the page.
The ease of customization makes New Technology an excellent choice for designers that want to create e-commerce sites for their clients. Because it is so easy to use, however, e-commerce merchants who have someone on staff who has web design skills or who have the skills themselves should find that this template allows them to get their site up and running with minimal difficulty. This template offers a lot in the way of flexible menu styles, ease of installation and support. If you do have questions about using the New Technology template, you can contact the designer himself over an Internet message board and ask questions directly about using any of the features or about any difficulties you may be having with implementing some of the more advanced capabilities of the template.
