Developing Joomla! templates involves more than just webdesign. To develop flexible templates you also need some extra PHP-logic, for which the Joomla! Framework provides good libraries. But some tasks require a solid understanding of this framework. That's why we have compiled various PHP-functions together in one library: The Yireo Template Helper library.
There are various templating tools for Joomla! on the market: But templating clubs like RocketTheme, YooTheme and JoomlArt have copyrighted their libraries, making it difficult to include their functionality in your own Joomla! template. Our library solves this problem.
Yireo Template Helper is an open source project, that you can help along with. If you have any improvements, send it to us: Use our public GitHub repository to send us a pull request, or send us a Gist of your code.
Troubleshooting SEF URLs is a common job for Joomla! admins. This plugin allows for easy switching between SEF and non-SEF, without hassling your users.
Less CSS and JS files on your pages increases your page speed. This extension allows you to merge files together, so that less HTTP requests are required.
