It begins with curiosity and an open mind, it begins with people with a talent for both observation and creative problem-solving. JoomShaper team listened to what people wanted, and we watched as independent Joomla! developers use our template framework in their projects. We spend many hours on talking how we can improve Helix.  And now we can show preview of upcoming version.

Those changes in result will improve your productivity and creativity when you will decide to use our Helix III template framework in your next project. Of course we also redesigned whole design concept (front-end & back-end side). Righ now it become more modern, we use Flat User Interface Design. Flat design is a minimalistic design approach that emphasizes usability. It features clean, open space, crisp edges, bright colours and two-dimensional/flat graphic elements.

New HomePage of Helix v3

Contrasting & solid colours make images and buttons pop from backgrounds, easily grab attention, and guide the user's eye. The purpose of minimalistic imagery also contributes to flat design's functional character. Simple images convey messages more quickly than detailed photos. Images like icons can indicate universal actions or purposes so that everyone can easily understand them.

We included package of latest version of Font Awesome 4.2. It means we gives you scalable vector icons (over 470+) that can instantly be customized — size, color, drop shadow, and anything that can be done with the power of CSS. Compatible with screen readers, vectors, icons scale to any size.

No Coding Knowledge Required

You never touch the source code or shortcodes before and now it's better you don't have to know what it is or how it works. We removed ShortCodes, in their place we suggest to use SP Page Builder (Free or Pro version). When building a website, there is no need to start from scratch as there this amazing extension. This backend builder lets you build pages using add-ons as building blocks you can drag-and-drop into a responsive layout. Also using built-in templates cuts the cost and time down, and it allows you to get your products out there quickly. Our suggestion about how you should work in near future: Use SP Page Builder for almost all pages  and K2 items or default articles reserve only for blog section. Once you've successfully done this, your users (clients with access to admin panel) will appreciate the functional nature of CMS. It's the developer company's job to figure out the best, most cost-effective solution for content & design manage.
