This month we've got a selection of a few templates that we thought we're worth mentioning. I heard mentions of people having issues with some template providers that did things strangely and which made things difficult when it came to customisation and building of the website, we we picked templates from reputable sources that we know and have worked with in the past.

My number one recommendation when working with templates is to try and get one as close as possible to what you want and need. Customising the template on top of what you have can sometimes cause issues. So if you can work within the limitations of the templates then you will be set.

Also look at always using the quick starter installation with your site. It will make configuring all the inner parts and modules much much easier.


1. JoomlaShine Ferado

Beautifully put together clothing store template by the team at JoomlaShine. Comes preconfigured with a lot of their bells and whistles as well as a quick starter installation to make it easier to get started. This is very standard practise from good template providers.

2. JA Directory

For those that are looking at creating a directory based website, this template from Joomlart may be the perfect one for you. Build by a professional team that have been designing and building Joomla! templates since Joomla! was first released.

This is a beautiful template. I couldn't capture the home page unfortunately but this is one template with all the bells and whistles. Yootheme have always designed some amazing templates and this is no exception.
