We have upgraded all our Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.7 templates and added a new feature - RTL (Right-to-Left) text support. If writing starts from the right side of the page, and continues to the left, then we can call this language RTL language. Languages that use this system are based on Arabic alphabet (Arabic, Persian...), Hebrew alphabet (Hebrew, Yiddish...), and many more.

joomla rtl supportThere's CSS direction property (direction:ltr or direction:rtl) that specifies the text direction/writing direction. However, by simple adding this property in template's CSS file, we will not get the best result. There are several other elements (such as arrow images) that require modifications. We took care of it, so, if your language is based on Right-to-Left alphabet, you can simply switch template to RTL mode.

How is it done? Go to Joomla backend and from there to the template manager. Click on the template name and page with many template parameters will be opened. Text Direction parameter is on the top of the parameters block, in the first pane named as Template Layout. By default, it's set to Left-to-Right option, however you can change it to the Right-to-Left option. Click Save icon to remember your setting and you're done. You can visit frontend of your site now to check if desired text direction has been activated.

As usually, if you ordered a specific template (with or without Developer license), you can download updated template files from our download site. Also, all Joomla template club members with active subscriptions have download access as well.
