I'm searching already for a while for a nice template for my joomla site, but can't find anything. I need a template that would have on its initial page a slider that would pick automatically posts of a certain tag/category and would show small sections with a summary of each category.

Something like this: http://www.infowars.com

Thanks a lot

I don't think anything like that would be built into a template. You are better off looking for a module that does the same - it would work on any template.

I've used GK PhotoSlide before now - it's free but it doesn't generate slides automatically, you have to add images manually. (Actually I don't think you'll find an automatic one because there is no way to determine what image to show for an article.)

Have a look on the Joomla Extensions site for more.

"there is no way to determine what image to show for an article" Cant we define a standard picture for the post in Joomla, in the same way you do for WP? – Emerson Nov 15 '10 at 15:29

I would recommend http://demo.rockettheme.com/free/quasar/ and use any of extensions from here http://www.yootheme.com/tools/extensions
