The zen building blocks are a set of five responsive Joomla templates that are designed to be the ideal starting points for your Joomla web projects. We call them Zen Building blocks because they are simple, minimal, cleanly coded and have the potential to be turned into just about any type of design you can put your mind to.
This month we are releasing five new responsive Joomla templates for you to build, develop and create your next Joomla template on. The zen building blocks are a set of five responsive Joomla templates that are designed to be the ideal starting points for your Joomla web projects.
The five themes cover a broad range of design outlines.
This type of design is popular among businesses and product type websites. A dark navigation, banner and to area offset by an off white content area, which is then supported by a dark footer or bottom area.
The Koan theme is a container based design that places the man content area including the logo, navigation and some bottom modules on a white container with a subtle shadow. Top, bottom and footer module positions sit outside of the main container on the background colour.
The sidetrack template is a two column fixed sidebar template with minimal styling. The sidebar works intelligently by remaining fixed on the page if the sidebar is shorter than the browser window. If it is longer than it scrolls with the rest of the content as the user scrolls down.
The fullscreen theme is based on the sidetrack template but with the added bonus of a background slideshow. The background functionality is just a module position so you can add anything you like there. On the demo we used an instance of the zen tools slideshow.
The full screen template side bar has the same functionality as the sidetrack template.
