Joomla! takes security very seriously and is extremely proactive about fixing any issues that may arise. That doesn't mean that there isn't more you can do for your Joomla! website to protect it. Using SSL, you can enable a few features already built-in to Joomla! and protect from some easy exploits that may be taken against your site and users users. Better yet, SSL can be used for other features you may not even know about.

What Makes a Website Memorable?

When perusing through websites the last thing on a person’s mind is something like what will make me want to come back to this site? All the same, there are certain aspects of a website that will lodge themselves in a visitor’s mind. Subtle though they may be, these are the nuances every website owner wants to capture. Why? Because these are the things that cause return visits, that cause visitors to spend more time on a particular site rather than idly surfing the web.

The Conference Crasher

So, let me start by saying I wasn’t a Joomla Guy. I was a web application guy that was used to using frameworks like Codeigniter and Ruby on Rails. I met the guys at Cont3nt.com who were building a really exciting service for freelance journalists. I asked them what they were writing it in and they said “Joomla.” My first reaction was, “Really?”

Automating Your Component Demo Site

These days almost all Joomla! developers have a demo site to display their component for testing. It really doesn’t matter if you give your component away or if you are offering it for purchase; most users expect to be able to test the functionality and “see it in action” before they purchase or waste their time downloading and installing on their own site. This means as a component developer you have to keep a demo site up and running at all times with the latest version of your component.

On Track with Joomla!

Happy but feeling like I'd been hit by a train, as I crawled into bed after the first day of the Joomla World Conference (JWC), I thought, "This is gonna kill me!"
