If you own a website that runs in Joomla, you will be pleased to know that the company just released the first mobile optimized Content Management System (CMS) 3.0.
“The Joomla 3.0 release opens the mobile door for all Joomla websites making them look, feel and operate equally well on all viewing devices (smartphone, tablets and traditional desktops),” said Nick A of Joomlapolis. “Joomla is used by 8.9% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 2.8% of all websites,” according to W3 Web Technology Surveys.
If you are still in the process of planning a mobile responsive site with Joomla (which can be easily install through Softaculous on WestHost hosting plans), here are the top four benefits of using Joomla 3.0.
Variety of Templates
There are more than 4000 free Joomla CMS templates. Plus, in Joomla 3.0, there is an updated accessible template called Beez3.
Incorparate Twitter Bootstrap for Browsing
One of the most significant changes in the Joomla 3.0 is the Bootstrap framework from Twitter that adds mobile responsiveness to CMS. It has the ability to adjust the layout of the website based on the screen size.
Twitter Bootstrap is a tool kit that consists of design templates (based on CSS) and HTML for texts, colors, fonts, web page navigation, and many more. Visitors of your website will benefit on this update. They can browse your web pages with ease and read your content with comfort.
Improved Admin UI
The improved interface for administrators and users delivers a high-quality mobile design. It’s easier to manage your content and deploy plugins and extensions. The brand new look will improve your browsing experience on any type of device.
Updates and Developments
Thanks to the volunteers and professionals, there are frequent updates and developments to the platform.
“Open-source, free software platforms drive innovation on the web because they lower access barriers for both creative developers and organizations,” said Andrew J. Holden, CEO, Weever Apps for Joomla and WordPress. “Open-source isn’t just a technology – it’s a community of people working together to solve common problems and create useful things.”
