I just noticed that3.0 is . The content resizes itself depending on your window size. The best part is that the 3.0 Frontend and Backend are both responsive.
The Joomla team were able to go mobile quickly by using Twitter Bootstrap. Why did they decide to go with Bootstrap?
- It’s mobile by default. Within a short space of time, the Joomla team were able to get both the visitor and administrator area working on mobile phones.
- It’s ridiculously popular. There are a few mobile frameworks out there but Bootstrap is by far the most common. By using something that many designers already use, Joomla can make it easier for those designers to adapt.
- It’s consistent. Bootstrap provides a uniform interface for all your .
- It’s saves time. Developers don’t need to reinvent basic interfaces. Bootstrap will do most of the work for them.
I’ve taken some screenshots from my iPhone to show:
- Frontend View from iPhone
- Backend Administrator Login View from iPhone
- Backend Administrator Main Menu View from iPhone
- Joomla 3.0 Backend Administrator Main Menu View from iPhone
1. Joomla 3.0 Frontend View
I viewed my Joomla 3.0 website with my iPhone and below is the screenshot I captured from it. The first thing I noticed though was that when I clicked on the link ‘Openmenu’, I started to see the text ‘TPL_BEEZ3_CLOSEMENU’. When I clicked on that it became ‘TPL_BEEZ3_OPENMENU‘. I will have to look into the Joomla 3.0 template index.php file code to find out how to fix that.
2. Joomla 3.0 Backend Administrator Login View
Here is a view of the Joomla 3.0 backend administrator login screen on my iPhone. I’m surprised at the new interface as it’s also very user friendly.
3. Joomla 3.0 Backend Administrator Main Menu View
The Joomla 3.0 Administrator Main Menu is also surprisingly very easy to use and manage. The navigation is clear and simple. Although it is a little bit slow, it’s 100 times better than what it was before. You can see below the Main Menu on my iPhone.
4. Joomla 3.0View from iPhone
Out of curiosity I wanted to see what the Joomla 3.0looked like on my iPhone. You will see below that it is also very intuitive and easy to navigate. It was very easy to add and edit modules in the Module Manager. It was a little confusing at first how to save the changes in the Module, but all you have to do is click on the ‘Toolbar’ and you can choose to ‘Save’, ‘Save & Close’, ‘Save & New’, ‘Close’.
These are greatin Joomla 3.0. I’m actually very excited to start using a stable version of it when it comes out. This will make this powerful CMS extremely easy to manage and add content.
