20+ Joomla Templates Get Latest Helix Ultimate, SP Page Builder Pro, and More

With the recent Helix Ultimate and SP Page Builder Pro update, it’s time we updated our Joomla templates. Because these are what our templates are built on. In this batch of template update, 22 Joomla templates will get the latest Helix Ultimate and SP Page Builder technologies, several improvements, and fixes.

All of our Joomla templates based on Helix Ultimate have been updated with the latest version of their tools (Helix Ultimate, SP Page Builder Pro, and Joomla)

It’s probably one of the highest numbers of Joomla templates being updated in a single batch. We are happy that a large number of users who are craving for the new features of our Helix Ultimate and SP Page Builder in their templates will get them. This time, we are updating Helix Ultimate based Joomla templates. We will update the other ones in the days to come too.

What’s in this Update?

Taking a look at the changelog would give us a complete idea of this update. Let’s have a glimpse at the changelog first.

Changelog:

  • Update: SP Page Builder v3.6.10 
  • Update: Helix Ultimate v1.1.2
  • Update: Joomla v3.9.15
  • Fix: All minor bugs

SP Page Builder Pro

There have been some remarkable changes in SP Page Builder Pro recently. The changes include introducing Font Awesome 5, releasing a few new addons, and bringing enhancements & fixes. 

SP Page Builder Pro now offers full support for Font Awesome 5. Now you would be able to use Font Awesome 5’s 3 different icon styles, a separate category for brand icons, and many more. Since you have been using Font Awesome 4 for long, we've also made it compatible so that it creates no issues with your previous pages.

Helix Ultimate

Just like SP Page Builder Pro, Helix Ultimate has also introduced Font Awesome 5 in its latest update. With updated Helix Ultimate, you will be able to use new icons of Font Awesome 5 along with all other features that it brings. For all of the icons you used of Font Awesome 4, we've made it compatible with Font Awesome 5 with a shims file. 

You will enjoy page enhancement and SEO enhancement with the option to add an “alt” tag to the featured image. Apart from that, we’ve brought some specific changes to some of the templates above. All necessary components including SP Simple Portfolio to several specific templates got updated.

Also, we’ve fixed several issues in different templates including Testimonial Carousel Pro person image alignment issue in Fixter, PHP warning Issue in Konstra, module language missing issue, API key language missing issue, and course title PHP warning issue in Language School, home page blog title on click 404-page redirect issue in Newsberg, category page subtitle alignment issue in Startup Landing template, and several more.

There are various templates that my customers choose (Helix v2 and Helix v3), for example:


  • Organic Life
  • Travel Kit
  • Glamour
  • Varsita
  • Soccer
  • Blinker
  • OnePage
  • Vocal (Today it has bugs in demo)
  • Spectrum
  • Strings
  • Lightbox
  • Ares Murphy


I think that you should remove from catalog the templates no supported by JoomShaper anymore, and upgrade to Helix Ultimate all templates.

Speaking of updating SP Pagebuilder, how about updating it so it can be used as a site wide editor?

Instead of using JCE as the site wide editor I would LOVE to use SP Pagebuilder instead.

Using the power of SP Pagebuilder inside of other extensions would be awesome.

I know we can use SP Pagebuilder on articles but if we could use on let’s say forum posts, virtumart product descriptions, digital download descriptions, etc just by replacing JCE, This would be amazing!!!

So can you do it?

Cheers, Adam

Thanks, but JCE and SPPB are two different products. JCE can be part of SPPB. But I agree that we should implement some JCE Media features.

I have a heavy production website with the Educon template. I had wished to move to a template with HU but it so hard. What is the easiest way to change to a newer template and still keep most of your design? And Educon is not being updated and one is stuck!!!

Just installing the new template and switching

to it, almost all go banana and manual tweaking is almost hopeless and too time-consuming.

What is the way forward under such circumstances?

we're sorry, there is no one-click migration process. It requests a rebuilding template almost from scratch. Helix3 was based on boostrap3 and HU on BT4.

I understand that very well. I am actually not asking for a one-click migration solution. That would be asking too much. For instance, I may find a recent template appealing. But on the demo, you have so many CSS clases wrapped in so many places that make the look-and-feel awesome.
To be able to have things look very close, I would have to install the demo of that template somewhere, then walk through all the pages to see the CSS classes and how they are used, then copy them on my site. Not sure if I am communicating.

Is it possible that you will update Cuisine to Helix Ultimate?
We need a restaurant theme where the menu is in rows and not in columns.
Cuisine has rows but is Helix 3
Restora is Helix Ultimate but has columns

Also, Cuisine adds menu numbers automatically - we do not need this.

Thanks...

Maybe get the vertical menu/centering improvements like Flex https://philipwalton.github.io/solved-by-flexbox/demos/vertical-centering/ ? So you can use a vertical menu in Helix Ultimate

Thanks for the reply.
However, I am not talking about the navigation menu - I am referring to the food menus.

Cuisine uses .sppb-row and Restora uses .sppb-columns
