In January 2012, Joomla announced the release of it’s CMS version 2.5 as an update of version 1.7 and we start to see some really great Joomla 2.5 templates show up. Apparently, Joomla 2.5 is not only a security update intended to protect the users from malicious security attacks, but also a gradual attempt to abandon the image of the CMS as “a turf for IT experts.” Clearly the motive of Joomla is to popularize itself to the end users, and compete with WordPress as a platform of choice by non-tech individuals. One of the key parameters for this is to have some of the best Joomla 2.5 Templates as the huge availability of high quality premium themes is one of the key strength of WordPress.

So at present, the templates that you can use are those that support the 2.5 version. These are either, natively designed, or those from lower versions which have been updated so that they are compatible Joomla 2.5 templates. There are a handful around, but finding good ones may prove to be not easy. That is why, we come up with this article to identify some great themes that support Joomla 2.5. These are all premium items, taken from notable template providers where you should be able to get support if needed.

So why should you consider Joomla 2.5. First of all it is among the most popular CMS systems competing with WordPress and Drupal in the open source scene. Among the features introduced in Joomla 2.5 that I believe is important and bring Joomla closer to its competitors is automatic notification of Joomla core and extension updates. In a world where malware and hackers constantly threaten to break good sites security updates is critical. Other notable features are Smart search, that offers a faster, more user-friendly search experience for visitors. Also around, is the auto-completion function that helps users find relevant content by typing a few letters.

At the back end, Joomla 2.5 now has multi-database support which includes Microsoft SQL and this is key for some organizations. If you want to learn more about news in Joomla 2.5 you should read the feature page. With improved features now in place, Joomla solidifies its image further as a leading CMS.

Most of these templates are stunning but it seems few are adaptive or responsive. Also, could you please showcase some sports templates as well. Great choices. Noticed that a couple just show a placeholder image. Not sure if that’s only because id am viewing on my Android phone.. Thanks
