Newstream – News Magazine template

Newstream matches simplicity with a bold colour palette to create an elegant Joomla news portal or Joomla magazine template. Newstream also comes with an incredible K2 Joomla template that can help you to create an interactive online portal with absolute style and since the template is built on our Zen Grid Framework it makes it almost effortless to create your own flexible interactive magazine masterpiece.


Large slideshow.

Magazine templates are often driven by a sharp visual aesthetic and the JB Slideshow module provides the perfect focal point for the front page. The slideshow module works both with your standard Joomla content and K2 items which makes it a flexible solution for creating a sliding or fading content slideshow.

13 colour schemes

Newstream comes with thirteen distinct colour schemes that are big, bold and beautiful.

A news or magazine site traditionally needs to set the general tone via a clean or minimal backdrop with a focus on simplicity but it can also emphasize its content with a dynamic and striking colour palette.

Newstream does this by providing ample white space with a simple and striking colour hierachy that creates an elegant theme to accompany your news.

Built on the Zen Grid Framework

Our Zen Grid framework makes it incredibly easy to make layout and colour changes to your site with zero templating or coding knowledge. No more digging into code to adjust the width of an element and logo replacement is a breeze. The new framework also sports a brand new template interface that puts the plethora of Zen Grid parameters into an easy to use and understand user interface.

K2 Template

We are big fans of the K2 component for Joomla and every front end template we have released this year has come replete with a full K2 template. K2 is often described as Joomla 1.6 for Joomla 1.5 but in a nutshell it provides extra functionality that extends the content options and potential for Joomla. The newstream K2 Joomla template is designed to be used as a blog / magazine layout and supports multiple author websites.

For more information regarding K2 check the main K2 site.

50+ Module Positions

Tabbed Modules

The demo site for the newstream template features some slicked tabbed modules on the front page that will help you to sort your articles using the tabbed interface. Simply publish the modules to the tab1, tab2, tab3 or tab4 module positions in order to activate the tabbed area. The tabs are perfect for displaying important although not crucial information on the front page of your site.
