As one of the better templates currently available for the Joomla CMS, JSN EPIC by JoomlaShine provides you flexibility and outstanding graphics to develop a professional website.
We are using the JSN EPIC Developer version for a number of websites. We worked for a while with the free version, but could not resist buying the "Pro Version" of the template. We bought our first template in 2006 (version 2) and have been working since with the template’s improved functionality (versions 3 and 4).
JSN Epic supports websites that use languages that are read from the right to the left - RTL (such as Dari and Arabic). This was important since we developed websites for organizations in Afghanistan and Iraq. JSN Epic beautifully manages the rendering of text in multi-lingual websites that use both RTL and LTR languages and it works perfectly with Joomfish.
We are equally impressed with the documentation and support provided by the JoomlaShine team. We did have a few technical questions in the past and they were addressed within hours by the team.
Besides professional websites, JSN Epic can also be used for fun projects such as www.poppie.developmentwork.net. This project shows that JSN Epic, although designed for the professional market, is ideal for personal and special interest sites where quality and flexibility are required. It is easy to customize the background of the template and with a large number of module positions, you will have flexibility in designing the feel and look of your site.
We haven’t had time yet to also “mobilize” our sites for smart phone users. We know that JSN Epic already provides this option, but we will explore this later after we have migrated our sites to Joomla 1.6.
