More Bang for Your JCM!

More Bang for Your JCM!

The Joomla Community Magazine exists for the community, and by the community. It’s not called the “Joomla Magazine” for a reason.

Focusing on Joomla!

Focusing on Joomla!

This issue is a big one! We have lots of articles and, very happily, lots of photos. The one thing we always do each month is try to find a relevant image to go with articles that were submitted without one... not so easy when you are searching for something interesting to go with an article full of code.
