The Zen Simple shop is a slightly updated version of the Simple Shop template we released back in April 2008. This version utilises the Zen Grid framework and provides support for the ecommerce component from Dioscouri as well as an implementation of the Avanti K2 template that we released in January 2010. Zen Simpleshop is a clean, minimal snow white Joomla template that is superfast and great for showcasing your products, blog or any other content.
template feature overview
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.
For more information regarding K2 check the main K2 site.
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.
Six Colour Schemes
While Simpleshop is really just a white vanilla template we have provided six colour schemes to help change link and heading colours. Changing the colour scheme is as simple as adjusting the theme via the templates administrator panel.
50+ Module Positions
There are 50+ module positions in this template and because its built on the Zen Grid framework it means that the module positions are the same as used in all other themes built using it. This means less overhead in learning where the positions are as well as learning how to configure them.
