Joomla! 1.7 Highlight - Batch Processing

Joomla! 1.7 Highlight - Batch Processing

Elin Waring recently blogged on the Joomla! Community Portal about some of the features coming with Joomla! 1.7, appropriately titled Peeking at 1.7. Aside from the separation of the framework and CMS, I think (and I may be a bit biased) one of the better changes is the ability to batch process items being added to the framework.

It’s equally valuable as a training resource for the website builders who want to use select chapters as standalone tutorials for their clients, and can serve as a sustainable hands-on knowledge management component for any organization that has deployed and is using Joomla! to establish and grow its web presence.

Navigating the code development process (part 2 of 2)

Navigating the code development process (part 2 of 2)

While at JAB11 in May, I heard comments from more than a few developers that it could be difficult to get their code accepted into the Joomla! core. So I committed to publishing a JCM article to try and address those concerns. In the first article of this two part series, I gave an overview of how the existing development process works. In this month's article, Mark Dexter and Louis Landry from the Joomla! Production Leadership Team have responded to questions about the development process that were submitted by other developers in the community.

IE6 and IE7 can see ghosts or validate before your cross browser test

IE6 and IE7 can see ghosts or validate before your cross browser test

Yesterday I broke one of my rules when it comes to template development - I started to cross browser test before I validated.

I had my design looking perfect in Safari and Firefox and, without thinking, thought I would see what it looked like in Internet Explorer. As most of you have probably experienced waiting for the page to load in Internet Explorer 6 or 7 on a design for the first time can be a somewhat nerve wracking experience.
