If you have been impressed with the ability to create Showcase with worpdress ,now you can also do it on Joomla.Today I will introduce how to create a Showcase for Joomla in the addons free .However, you can create very professional site.this article will use Julia portfolio compoment.Julia portfolio is a simple component which features nice Slimbox preview, project details page, custom column number and image width for your items, custom ordering and easy interface translation via language files.
The intended purpose of JuliaPortfolio whas to allow me to showcase my few items that I wanted to put in my portfolio. I searched the JED and, even though a lot of extensions out there are very nice, none of them would fit my needs. I just needed an uncomplicated way to put some pictures, some text and a link on my page.
What JuliaPortfolio offers you now is a nice set of features:
- automatic image resize on upload, via GD library
- parameters to manage most important aspects of your portfolio, like image size, number of columns
- recently added SEF urls to allow better crawling of your portfolio
- links with "no-ref" attribute set up to prevent loosing of page rank
- layouts for both single items and entire portfolio
Easy to install via the core Joomla installer, doesn't load Mootools if already loaded by the template and easy styling with Css.
Install and start adding items!
