Website Case Study: Kineo E-Learning

Website Case Study: Kineo E-Learning

A global leader in E-Learning solutions, Kineo needed to update their website, and employed Philip Locke of Fastnet Web Design to help them get the job done. The previous Kineo website was running on Mambo, and it was time for an upgrade to Joomla! Using available migration tools, Fastnet Web Design was able to keep the content, categories and menu structure in place as they cautiously moved the large database and site from Mambo to Joomla 1.0, then to Joomla 1.5 successfully. Today, Philip will share with us how he made the successful transition to Joomla in just 8 short weeks.

Review: "ChronoForms 3.1 for Joomla! Site Cookbook"

Review: "ChronoForms 3.1 for Joomla! Site Cookbook"

A little while ago there was a need for a forms component for the Joomla! Community Magazine. Out of this discussion I started to think that it would be interesting to do a comparative study of forms components for Joomla!. In my initial research, I started out with a forms component I know best: ChronoForms. I have worked with other forms components, but I just keep coming back to ChronoForms. It is one of the first extensions I install on any given site I am working on. One of the reasons why I like Chronoforms is it's highly configurable and fairly easy to extend. One of the things I stumbled upon in my initial research was a book called, “ChronoForms 3.1 for Joomla! Site Cookbook, 80 recipes for building attractive and interactive Joomla! forms”.
