JBB Vintage – Joomla Templates

Vintage is a tumblr inspired Joomla template that features multiple colour schemes a simple tagging system for your content and an elegantly designed responsive design.


Vintage is aimed at those users that want a simple blog style template to showcase their ideas, thoughts and inspiration. Consider it your online Joomla notebook – ready to record your every thought.

Flexible LayoutsThe Vintage demo site shows a simple one column layout with site links, search and other modules you would normally see in the side bar, hidden in the hidden panel . But if that isn’t quite your cup of tea, since this theme is built on the flexible zen grid framework you can have a more traditional two, three or four column layout.

Packed full of style

Vintage comes with some flexible options including 5 background variations, eight Colour highlights and eight different tag Colour schemes. The tags are automatically populated in the k2 Joomla template and you can also use them across module classes on the page. There are ten different tag module classes available. The images are delivered on the page using a sprite which means you can load as many of the Mage based module classes n the page without worrying about excess htt requests or an increased page weight.

Social Icons

CSS and Javascript Compression

The framework combines and compresses the javascript and css delivered by the template and framework which reduces http requests when loading the site and reduces files sizes of your web site’s core assets.

Easily add your own css and javascript

Upload your own css and javascript files to the template’s user folder and have them automatically included in your site.

If you dont need Mootools on your site then it’s easy to set the option to not load Mootools on your site which can be a significant advantage when it comes to page load on your site.

A beautiful user interface

Version 2 of the Zen Grid Framework sports a beautiful user interface that makes using framework a true joy.

Template admin access control

Ever have a customer that likes to fiddle with template settings? The Zen Grid framework now gives you the option to remove selected options from the template administrator interface.

A beautiful offline page

When your site isn’t quite ready to show to the world you can show a simple and streamlined offline page for your users.

Useful frontend debug mode

Built-in documentation

Never leave the template admin again with the complex built-in framework and template documentation built into the template interface.

Clean markup

The Zen Grid Framework features clean and reusable markup based on a flexible and scalable percentage grid that makes it super easy to scale your content according to screen size.

Three menu systems to choose from

Each Zen Grid Framework template has the option of displaying your menus in either a jQuery powered superfish menu, split menu or accordion like panel menu. The menus are delivered via the core Joomla menu module and are a snap to set up.

Tabbed Modules

A tabbed interface can easily be created by simply publishing any module of your choosing to the tab1, tab2, tab3, tab4 positions. Take a look at the Meridian Joomla template’s front page for a quick demo.


The framework also supports a png fix for transparent images for the Internet Explorer 6 browser.


Removing our branding on the front end of the template is an easy toggle in the template admin.
