Joomla News Template

Redesigned and redeveloped for Joomla 4 using the latest versions of our framework and page builder, this Joomla template is created for news portal websites. The main purpose of the news portals is to show many information from different fields, for example politics, sport, entertainment, technology, arts, etc. Joomla news template Hot News Portal can be a good starting point in the development of such websites.

The readers usually visits such portals regularly, on daily basis. The news portals usually publish a lot of news articles every day. It's necessary to classify all these articles by importance and time of publishing. Some of the articles are shown as featured and they are more important, but everything, including the featured articles, is changing every day. Since readers are visiting such portal often, there should also be some service information, such as weather conditions. This Joomla news template allows you to add this feature easily. Browsing through tons of information will be easier with an easy-to-use search system which is available from all pages. This is available as well.

We have included several Joomla modules in the News Portal template package. One of them briefly shows weather conditions for all locations in the world. The second module allows you to include scrolling text with excerpts from the selected news articles. Also, you can include Google Maps into the articles. Last but not least, if you want to create carousels with images and text, you can do this using the Hot Full Carousel module.

The backend of the Hot News Portal Joomla template is based on our most popular product: the Sparky Framework. Using a drag and drop technology you can create or edit website layout and add or remove elements (module positions, menus, logo) and other template elements (typography, special features, etc.). This is also the place where you can visually change the font colors and text styles using a collection of 800+ Google fonts.
