Joomla 3.6 New Features

The above infographic show the most important new features in Joomla 3.6. For detailed information, please visit the official announcement.

Joomla 3.6.0 has been released recently with many improvements and bug fixes in code. We have checked our products thoroughly and didn't find any major incompatibility issues between our framework and modules and the latest Joomla. However, there's a small issue that fortunately can be fixed easily.

Fix color picker in Row Settings modal window

The only issue we found so far is related to the Row Settings modal window. This issue was found in these templates: Hair Salon template, Paradise template, Plumber template and Tea template. There are slight changes in color picker code in new Joomla 3.6 which makes JavaScript errors on page. You can fix it easily:

  1. Edit file /templates/your_template_name/js/admin/tadmin.js. Around line 389, find this line: jQuery.minicolors.defaultSettings.theme='bootstrap'; and change it with this: jQuery.minicolors.defaults.theme='bootstrap';
  2. Edit file /templates/your_template_name/css/admin/tadmin.css and add this CSS code: #sbox-content .layout_settings .control-group .minicolors-theme-bootstrap.minicolors-position-bottom div.minicolors-panel { display: none; }

This will fix the issue and the Row Settings modal window will work normally again.
