Kite Photography - October 2007 Bonus Club Template

joomla template

This October bonus template is geared to a photography style site. We wanted to try something different; get away from the 3 column Joomla look that almost every template has. This template includes 2 menus that you can choose from, our new image menu (shown on the dark theme demo) and the standard suckerfish style menu (shown on the light theme demo). For the first time we introduce the S5 Horizontal Scroll which saves visual space on your page. There are 2 color themes available, a dark and light version. We hope you enjoy this extra bonus and are able to wow you viewers.
