Leadership Highlights July 2015

While summer vacations are gradually arriving for part of the world, another part enjoys the coolness of winter. Our worldwide community is as diverse as the seasons in the world. And while we stay focused on our software instead of rainbow colors, everyone is equal and welcome to collaborate in our community.

Is This Love That I’m Feeling?

Back when Joomla was released I started to benefit from its features. My career took a new turn and I can say that my life changed because of Joomla. For sometime I thought I was in Love with Joomla. Only recently have I understood what that feeling really is.

The High Cost of Staying Old

I had a client who refused to pay to have his site migrated to Joomla 3. I argued with him, offered him deals and discounts, and still he did not see the business sense of spending money to "migrate".  His attitude was one of resentment that upgrading was now migration and all the mumbo-jumbo that went with it was just not anything he understood or even wanted to understand. He did not see the difference and the new functions didn't seem to sell him.

Category Item Count: To a Generic Solution

Last month I described how a new feature was developed to count the number of articles in each category. At the end of the 2nd day of JoomlaDay France 2015, the feature was working… that is, it counted all articles (for com_content) in the Category Manager for Articles. I got it working by adding a hard-coded “if extension = com_content” check in the Category Manager. That’s not a solution but a workaround, I was fully aware of that.

Everyone Needs a Membership Site. Why?

There are the obvious reasons why web sites need a membership component - to collect money and to create a community. Ah, but it goes much deeper than that.
