You can use all features of the Sparky Framework for free. However, if you need a professional support while you are working with Sparky, then you will need to sign up for a membership account at HotThemes. This account will also give you an opportunity to download many ready-made Joomla templates powered by Sparky Framework with quick installs included. Also, all additional modules and plugins developed by our team is included in the membership.

If you already have a Joomla site with existing content, you can still install and use the Sparky Framework. However, if your site is in the production status, it’s recommended to create a mirror copy of your site and work on it.

As you probably know, the content for each Joomla site comes from articles or components (main content), modules (in one or multiple module positions), and menus. After installation of Sparky, your job will be to create a layout that will be based on the content elements that you already have. It’s easy with Sparky’s drag’n’drop layout builder.

Once you accomplish that, you can enjoy all features that come with Sparky to enhance your existing website.
