Absolute Redux comes with dynamic front-end controls allowing the user to have powerful control over the front-end of the site, these options are completely customizeable from the back-end and can even be completely disabled if you like. All front-end controls can be enabled or disabled from the back-end and are also pre-loaded so they take no time to load. Dynamic front-end options included are: the 5 Color Options (Blue, Green, Red, Orange or Pink), Font Sizer (Normal, Large or Xtra Large), Sidebar Switch (Left or Right), 800px to 1000px Width Resize, Turn sIFR on or off dynamically. Also built into the front-end controls is a custom help module, allowing users to understand the various control options and how to use them.
So what else is new? Well, this time round JoomlaJunkie has added in a 3 level suckerfish menu system and a livesearch feature. Both of these are styled and built completely into the template so there are no modules to configure or install at all. Due to the increasing popularity of sIFR fonts on CMS sites, JoomlaJunkie has added a buit in sIFR feature - allowing you to have flash-type fonts for headings and other typography areas of the template - this can be set to any heading or text-type area of the website. Next up we have ThickBox3 - allowing for some classic image viewing and framing techniques giving a unique style to your site.
