Classic and Minimal for Joomla 3 released

Since the launch of Apple's iOS7, flat and minimalistic design is trending topic worldwide. Following this trend, Minimal is the stylish version of his brother theme Classic

CloudHotelier Minimal Theme follows the steps of his brother, Classic, but with a modern style and elegance. Minimal and Classic are built on top of CloudHotelier JStrap II template engine, taking advantage of new Joomla v3.3 CMS core for the back-end and Bootstrap v2.3 front-end framework -the same version as Joomla core- for maximum compatibility and long-term stability.

Cool Flat and Minimal Design

CloudHotelier Minimal is specially designed for hotels that need to present a clean image to their guests. From beach resorts to city hotels, Minimal can addapt perfectly to any needs, including boutique hotels and also modern country-side properties. We are providing 5 color variations, but, as we are providing easy customization LESS and CSS resources, you will be creating your own style for sure.

Minimal and Classic also integrate with Fancybox, to easily create pop-up windows of image galleries or Youtube videos. We also provide different useful modules, like latest tweets, or instagram feed & facebook feed (comming soon), to make your website social and cool. Full-width image presentation on the home, is a must.

CloudHotelier 3.0

Minimal is also specially designed for CloudHotelier 3.0. The new features of the new version look better with Bootstrap layout. Big images, rich popups with rooms information, image galleries and videos. Add extras to your room, or select special promotions or special packs, ideal for upselling. It’s all designed to work better with Bootstrap layouts, and it’s incredibly functional on touch screens and mobile browsers.

With Minimal and CloudHotelier 3.0 we are reaching new heights with our reservations system, in fact, we can asure we have one of the most powerful tools out there, and we can compete equaly to super expensive professional tools, for a fraction of the price.

JStrap II Template

With Joomla officialy adopting Bootstrap Framework we needed to prepare CloudHotelier for the future. Now we have a beautiful mobile-ready layout, and we are taking advantatge of Bootstrap conventions to build solid user-friendly layouts. JStrap means high quality development, clean layouts and consistent markup. Say goodbye javascript conflicts, slow websites, and ugly layouts. Say Hello JStrap!

JKit multi-language CCK

JKit is a powerful tool we have been developing to create multi-language sites. JKit allows us to create websites with a better organization of modules and menus, as JKit items can have their own translations.

Another point for developing JKit was to provide our costumers with an user-fiendly content management tool. JKit items have few options and can be customized using categories and types. Image uploading and resizing is also straightforward using JKit.

And last but not least, we wanted JKit to be highly customizable by website devolpers. Template layouts is the key to allow site developers to create super easy to customize views using JKit, but keeping the administration interface simple and clean. 

The result: you can let the final users manage JKit items with the confidence of not letting them access to modules or menus of the site. The clean user interface, easy organization, translations, and image uploading makes it easy for your users to self-manage the contents of the site.

Simplicity & stability for your projects

Minimal and Classic Themes for Joomla 3 are based on the new JStrap II template engine, that provides better compatibility with 3rd party extensions while keeping it's focus on simplicity, code quality and best practices on modern website development.
