HTML 5-based Multi-lingual Website

The Howoldies

The HowOldies website was featured as the October 2011 website case study of the month in the Joomla Community Magazine, who said this about the website: "If someone says all Joomla sites look the same, this is a great one to show them."

The Problem

Film animation company, Somuga, needed to use HTML 5 as a code basis for its The Howoldies cartoon website, and they needed the site to be delivered in three languages: English, Spanish, and their native Basque. The complex site designs, which they created in Photoshop, also posed some unique challenges to coding the site in Joomla.

The Solution

Thanks to new features that began in Joomla 1.7, including template styles, support for HTML 5, and improved language support, the site was able to be constructed exactly according to Somuga's specifications. Additionally, the site includes the ability for visitors to comment on articles and vote on videos and games. Fun!


We chose 4Web, because we fell in love with the picture of the three women and the penguin, and because they were fast, sincere, professional, and human too – from start to end. They like what they do, you can tell. And they do it well.
