Joomla 2.5 is a so called ‘Long Term Release’. The next Long Term Release (LTR) of Joomla! will be Joomla! 3.5, scheduled for release in Spring 2014.
Joomla 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2 are so called ‘Short Term Releases’ (STR).
The difference is that LTR’s are being updated as long as new STR’s are made. So when you use are LTR version of Joomla for your new website, like 2.5, you won’t have to update as much or worry about unstable plug-ins and templates. So, Long Term Release support periods will not only be longer but also cut across the period of support offered to STRs.
Hope that helps!

Thanks for the quick replies! That’s all I needed to know! I think I go for some custom work then – might take a bit more time but the result will fit better.
My client has a Wordpress site running – and now wants a shop. Since they were already using Wordpress with a nice design I decided to go with WOOcommerce.
However, the ‘standard’ WOOcommerce styling doens’t look brilliant. I am new to WOOcommerce – so I hope someone knows this: Is it possible to buy a WOOcommerce theme here on TF and copy the woocommerce-related files to the current theme?
A small 55$ purchase would be a lot cheaper / easier than coding it myself.
Really hope someone can help me out. Really appreciate it!
Any preferences regarding a CMS? I know Joomla has some 3rd party plugins like ZOO or K2 which would help you create something like this. Also, you could try using a e-commerce theme: I know e.g. woocommerce has a ‘catalog-mode’, so it will hide all Cart-functionalities.
Aiaiai, a ‘mile-wide’ tornado. Insane. Really can’t imagine seeing that, as an European. Stay safe over there, god bless you.
Spacing is key! Add some more whitespace between the text. (CSS: line-height) For 14px text, a line height of ±22px-24px looks good, most of the times.
Guys, I’ve found a great developer already. But, thank you all so much for your interest in my project!
@CFXd Thanks man, really appreciate it!
@mustachethemes Haha, to be honest, I have no idea how to use programs like After Effects and stuff. This video was created with Keynote, a ‘presentation’ app from Apple. You can do some nice things pretty easy. If you set all animation to ‘automatic’, you can export your presentation to a .mov file.
Thanks again, have an awesome weekend! Robbert
I’m kinda new here, so.. Hi! I’m a graphic / web designer, currently studying Multimedia design. Because of some free time I have at the moment, I decided to design a theme for Themeforest. I started designing a portfolio/grid theme last week, and I would love to hear your opinion. It’s a really clean design, focused on the freelancers’ work. It has a large slider on the frontpage, making the theme interesting for web agencies too. (Since a full grid isn’t really commercially attractive for larger agencies.)Made a little video, so you can get the idea. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9R1B6FED-w
Since I don’t have the skills to develop a (responsive?) HTML / Wordpress theme myself, I would love to collaborate with a developer. I can do the design and support and you can do the development.
If you aren’t interested, I’d still like to have your opinion about the design. Remember, it’s still at it’s very early stages.
I’d love to hear from you!
Cheers, Robbert, 94themes
I watched the live event last night with some friends. Really worth it, fun to watch. Weird that they didn’t show the actual device. Now I don’t know what will be underneath my TV this Christmas. So.. I guess we’re not only waiting for GTA V now, but on the PS4 too. Damn you, time, go faster!
” And the Ken Burns Dramatic Zoom ? For.The.Love.Of.All.That.Is.Good.PLEASE.No.”
Haha, this is so true. I wonder who ever came up with that, it’s terrible.
Thanks for the advise. I’m currently designing a portfolio-page, and will definitely keep these thing in mind.
