Product Update

We have made a change in our pioneer plugin, Joomla Admin Branding. For Joomla 2.5 version there used to be a border in front end of login window. This border was an annoyance for many. Specially when user applies a nice large background image, this border both on header area and content area on front end login of admin was an eye sore.

So based on client feedback we added a new setting parameter that will give user the option to remove this border from front end login.

 Content Border is the settings parameter introduced. The new change is applicable to only Joomla 2.5 and the product version is upgraded to 2.3 over 2.2
