Join us at the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts for two days of Joomla! learning, sharing, and networking! We have an exciting weekend planned, so bring your tablet, laptop and thinking cap... we are going deep!
If there is one thing we never have to worry about, it is the vibrancy of our Joomla! community, and how involved our community members are, on topics of all kinds, and even better, all over the entire world!
In this and an upcoming article, I would like to provide all the available information about the evolution of the Joomla Certification program, the actions performed so far, and a firsthand look by one of the team leaders at the future of this interesting project.
What do you think about the administrator panel of Joomla! 3.x? The opinions are split. I for one got some serious negative feedback from my clients not wanting to upgrade, saying that the panel is not user friendly. Some of them said they were used to the old panel and it's hard for them to make the learning curve once again. Add to that the fact that most templates are not designed for RTL (right-to-left) languages, and in an RTL country like Israel, you are stuck.
Joomla 1.5 is not supported by the Joomla project for quite some time now. You still can continue to use Joomla 1.5, but (security) updates will no longer be released. Furthermore, both Joomla 2 and Joomla 3 have many new features and improvements. Perhaps you recognize it: once you use Joomla 2 or Joomla 3, managing a Joomla 1.5 website really feels old-fashioned and you notice how greatly Joomla actually improved.
These have been busy days in our community, the like of which has rarely been seen before. Twitter has been burning with feedback accompanied by the Joomla! hashtag, and that's fine. It is good to see the community actively involved, even on issues that generate passionate discussions. We are all members of the same community.
Have you ever wanted to add a link to an article from within another article,without adding that linked article to your site's Main Menu, but but were frustrated trying to get your favorite selection of modules to be displayed with the article? The answer to managing the display of modules lies in using a Hidden Menu. (Also called an Invisible Menu.)
From May 30 to June 1st near Frankfurt, Germany the Joomla community from across the world will be gathering at J and Beyond for 3 days of "Investing in our Future". This is the 5th year of J and Beyond and each time we try to do something a little different. This year is no exception.
