The Joomla! Resource Directory ™

A New Resources Directory

UPDATE: 3/21/2014: Hey folks, we pushed the beta site live but it cost us a little trouble with our SEO and we want to make sure we retain the value of what was built in the past.

We do have a brand new JRD located at Please join us as we update this collection of new "Registered Providers," and prepare for a full public launch in early April 2014.

JRD-Get-ListedThank you for your patience.


The JRD Team.


In the August issue of the Joomla Community Magazine the Joomla Resources Directory (JRD) team announced that we had planned to close this site with plans to implement a new one for the community. As a part of that plan we are following up by putting this announcement to inform site users and visitors to look forward to the new site. Please read the article we published for more information about why we did this and the timeline for what we have in store!

As a result of the plan you'll notice a few changes:

  1. We aren't accepting any new submissions to this site.
  2. We aren't going to approve / moderate any existing listings.
  3. We are going to be archiving this site for the time being until a date to be determined in the future. The site will remain mostly static, unless you wish to completely remove your listing.
  4. NO listing in this archive site will be migrated to the new site. New registration is required. Click links above to get your new listings in the queue for approval.
  5. Note to users searching for providers; Many of the listings in this archive are outdated. For the most current listings of Joomla Registered Providers, please use the new site listed above.
We hope that by turning your attention to the newer, much more functional site,we will be able to make this site the resource in the community that it has always had the potential to become! We hope you are as excited as we are to work on a new beginnings for this community asset.
Thank you for your help and patience.

I haven't downloaded a template yet but I will be soon. I am a developer, designer and ActionScripter. I will be using some of the free templates to redesign my own photography site.

If you are wondering, I do not work for them, here is my blog:

The site is valid and is the only 1 of 4 companies that actually offers real templates from the Joomla! site.
Barrie and crew at Joomlashack provide outstanding Joomla education and support! Very few for-profit companies have the customer at heart but Joomlashack is one company that does! You can't go wrong with anything Joomlashack offers!

I got into Joomla for our church website using one of JomlaShack's free templates (Jamba) and by reading Barrie North's book.

Now that I want to get a new template with a few more features, I am considering buying one of their professional templates.

What is attractive about JoomlaShack's offering is, among other things, a limited number of good looking templates each nicely distinctive (rather than a mass of offerings difficult to wade through and find what you want).

Above all, the support is excellent. I spent almost 1/2 hour on the live support system getting my questions answered by Adam in the UK and discussing the various advantages of a few of the templates. He was friendly and helpful and didn't try to hurry me and was in contact with CEO Barrie North in the US to get further advice.

I am certain to buy one of their templates in the next 24 hours or so, not only because they look good, but because good help will be there.

The question is, however, which one will I choose?
I recently began using Joomlashack and have had nothing but a great experience so far. The templates are well made and easy to customize. Their forums are well maintained and I have gotten a quick and informative response to any inquiries that I have made.

Thanks Joomlashack

Highly recommended.

The templates are nicely colored, useful and lightweight. Also, the customer service is very good with live support available.

I bought the Earthblog template a few days ago and I have to say it has been one of the easiest templates to install and change. The Joomlashack website has really good tutorials and tonight I used the online help and it was brilliant. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend JoomlaShack to anyone looking for a template for their joomla site. I still have a way to go with my website but I feel confident that I have a good support system there for me should I need it.

I would love to recommend Joomlashack to everyone. I had downloaded the Optimus Template, free version. After a couple of days I got a coupon offering the Pro version at a ridiculous price which I being in India and having to purchase in USD could afford. Unfortunately, the coupon was only for 24 hours. I emailed Barrie and he extended the coupon immediately for 48 hours. Needless to say I am now a pround owner of the Pro version of Optimus.

In the My Accounts section an invoice due for payment was being shown. I contacted Live Support and Tom Elliot solved the problems in a matter of minutes.

I would like to add that the forums are very good with a lot of information and helpful people.
I purchased the Inspirion tableless template, downloaded it, and within less than 1 hour had my site up and running. The transition from ja_purity was very smooth and, thus far I have not even had to touch the CSS, though I will do that later to personalize it. Congratulations on a smooth-running template. I hope that in the future you will be creating more tableless Joomla templates.
I ran into a minor bug with one of the templates I purchased from Joomlashack, and decided to use their Live Chat feature, figuring that at most I would have been referred to a support ticket system or FAQ.

In a few minutes I was chatting with Barrie himself, and he took care of everything professionally and quickly.

Definitely check our their templates, too. Inspirion is just a beautiful theme.

Highly recommending these guys for your templates. Very professional and friendly.
