Joomla 1.6 is available since January 10, 2011. We are currently upgrading all our templates and extensions to Joomla 1.6 native mode. We will report upgrade progress of all our products on this page, so make sure you bookmarked it.

In HotStart installation instructions, you will read "unzip and upload". When we tell you to upload, we are not telling you to randomly upload HotStart files anywhere on your server. Please upload to an empty directory that is accessible via web browser (it's usually inside public_html or httpdocs directory)! Not all directories of your hosting space are accessible via web browser.


Are you started to panic? You're thinking: "They took my money for nothing!" No. We didn't! Although there are many places on the Internet where you can give "money for nothing", we are not such kind of guys. Let's start panicking, and let's better analyze the situation.

joomla template change

Is it easy to change Joomla template of an existing website? Will the website be offline for a long time during this operation? These questions are often asked in the Joomla world. People not proficient with Joomla usually think that template will be changed with a single click. This is actually true. Your template will be changed in a second, but there's a big chance that your website will be messed up after that.
