Joomla51, Joomla! 3.0 & Bootstrap

on Wednesday, 01 May 2013.

As many of you would know the release of Joomla! 3.0 is just around the corner and with it the introduction of the much talked about Bootstrap interface library, bringing with it great improvements to the Joomla! user experience. Previously with Joomla!, extension interfaces (templates included) tended to be a bit of mixed bag varying greatly from one extension to the next depending on the developers involved. This left users having to relearn the interface with each new extension added to Joomla! and developers having to allow for different interfaces with each extension.
