Most of the time we use plain background or a gradient but it may not be appealing so here are some very attractive gradient patterns :) have fun friends.The patterns are created using CSS3 linear-gradients by Lea Verou's (i changed it little for my convenience) from her original post on the topic of building patterns with gradients.
These demos work properly in IE 9 thanks to PIE. They do not work in IE 6-8 due to lack of support for sizing/positioning of linear-gradient as a tiled background.
For the users convenience i have deployed it my server u can directly use this link to access the code http://jbox.co.in/css/gradient.css
These are the patterns i frequently use in the templates i design.its gives a very good look and feel
I started using JOOMLA since mid 2009.. before that i tested many basic blogs and CMS, nothing interested me. I found Drupal little complex in usability and wordpress not that powerful so i was left with joomla and its quite amazing. In the early days i used most of the hacked templates and pro components for my websites ..joomla extension directory has almost all components useful to build and genere website be it simple college,art,personal or a complex social websites.
