Joomla 3.4 Templates

Joomla 3.4 was released earlier this year, and there have been a lot of improvements.

What’s new in Joomla 3.4?

They got rid of Weblinks: In order to make the CMS lighter, Joomla decided to remove the Weblinks module. But don’t worry you can still download it in the Joomla Extension Directory.

Front End Editing: You no longer have to log in to the admin area to edit a page. Now you have the possibility to do it from the front-end. We’ve been waiting a long time for this.

No Captcha: We hate captchas, but google recently introduced No-Captcha where you simply have to tick a box, confirming that you are not a robot. This new technology was integrated in Joomla 3.4.

We have a lot of joomla 3 templates on our website and you may be wondering which ones work with Joomla 3.4? Actually all of our joomla 3 templates are compatible with the latest verion 3.4. Nevertheless here is the 5 most popular Joomla 3.4 Templates:

If you don’t know already, Hostgator is the #1 web hosting provider. The majority of our users is very happy with this webhost, not only because they have great promotions, but their support and services are top notch. What I like most about them is the live support, which you can use at any time.

Just imagine that your database gets corrupted or you accidentally delete an important file. You need help instantly. With other web hosting providers, you usually have to open a ticket and wait hours if not day to get an answer.

With hostgators live support you have to wait only minutes (sometimes it’s instant, no need to wait), and their team is always friendly and helpful. There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t try out hostgator now, especially with the great Hostgator Coupon that works in April 2015 and later.
