After almost 3 years of the previous design, it was time for an update. A more "practical" update, almost a real-world site. And this is the result :)
As we announced on Twitter some months ago and just recently, this new demo website will be fully open-sourced so that people can learn by example. But there's another reason as well... Once the site is released as an installable package with its K2 setup and sample data ready, we will launch a small contest for the best redesigns of this website. The goal is simple. Keep the same sample data and work your magic. This contest is obviously targeted at experienced designers/developers and template clubs. The best 3 contributions will also be available on demo.getk2.org along with full credits to the designers/developers involved. K2 pros get ready!
JoomlaWorks is developing and supporting some of the most respected and popular extensions in the Joomla! community, including the groundbreaking K2, AllVideos, Simple Image Gallery and Frontpage Slideshow.
Since 2006 we have developed more than 26 extensions for the Joomla! CMS, all of which have been used in hundreds of thousands of Joomla! sites across the world.
Mid 2011, our extensions had been downloaded more that 4.5 million times, out of which AllVideos and Simple Image Gallery had more than 1.5 million downloads each and K2 more than 500,000!
Innovation and the open source philosophy are the two things that motivate us!
