SobiPro Templates & Design

SobiPro uses an standardized advanced template engine for the front-end templates. These templates are built in XSL. XSL stands for EXtensible Stylesheet Language, and is a language to process XML documents. With XSL you can build powerful templates.

More about the Template Language XSL public

SobiPro uses XSL templates to generate output. What does this mean?

As you can have a different template package for each section you build, there is a global template manager available to show and manage all installed SobiPro template packages and files. Just select Template Manager from SobiPro's control panel or from the upper right menu.

Each section has additionally its own section template manager where only the files of the template, used for that specific section is shown.

Sobipro comes with a default template pre-installed. This template is highly configurable and fits most of the needs. In its third version now, it is called 'default3'. Starting with SobiPro 1.2, we added an additional version of that template, specifically made for Booststrap 3 (B3-default3). Use this template as base reference, if your Joomla! template is Bootstrap 3 based.

A template package consists of several XSL template files for the different views of SobiPro. The currently loaded template file of a section, depends on the actual SobiPro task.
