About the Joomla! Community Magazine

Welcome to the Joomla! Community Magazine. Each month you will find articles that aim to educate, inform, challenge, and inspire you. And we also encourage community members to submit articles to the JCM, telling us what makes Joomla! special to them. That is really what the JCM is all about: Helping members of the Joomla! community connect with each other and share their stories. We would love to publish yours!

Mission Statement

The JCM publishes resources, reviews, news, and insights with an emphasis on the positive things happening in the Joomla! project and its community. It is a platform for informing about what can be accomplished with Joomla!, for allowing community members to share their stories and connect with each other, and for promoting better understanding between project leadership and the community. It highlights the contributions of community volunteers, and provides information about different opportunities to support the Joomla! project and its community.

Content Structure

The JCM is organized by different topics, and each issue contains new articles for each topic. There is a topics menu on the right sidebar of all JCM pages that allows you quick access to all articles in the current issue. You can click on the issues link in the main JCM navigation menu to find articles from previous JCM issues.

Contribute an article or idea, or join the JCM team

Engaging the community and encouraging participation is central to the JCM's mission. Each article provides the opportunity for community members to leave comments and interact with each other and the author. Each JCM article also features a “Contribute” module in the upper area of the right sidebar. In that module is a brief summary of what subjects that topic covers and what type of community participation is encouraged, along with a link to allow community members to take the next step of submitting an article or idea for an upcoming article.

The JCM has a team of friendly and helpful editors standing by to help you with your article. We have also developed extensive Author Resources content to help make the process of writing and submitting an article easier.

We are always looking for more creative, bright, talented, and passionate community members who are interested in joining our team of committed volunteers. Check the list the roles available for the JCM Team:
