What’s in store for Joomla 4.4? JCM meets the Release Managers, Allon Moritz and Martin Kopp. Let’s find out who they are and what they like most about Joomla 4!
In the last magazine article: Guiding you through Guided Tours, we looked at guided tours (available in Joomla 4.3) and walked through their use. We stopped at the point of creating a guided tour as an administrator and as a developer.

If you’re still using Joomla 3 you’ll no doubt have seen the message that: “Support for Joomla 3.10 ends on 17th August 2023” I was last in this situation with Joomla 2.5.28 and at the time I carefully documented my experience as it took a number of goes to update and included several quirks, such as turning off the “Remember Me” plugin and then copying library files once the update had been done.

You probably know how to organise your content with categories. But what if you want to be able to show content from multiple categories, based on something they have in common? That’s where tags can be useful. And the good part is: you can use this right out of the box, because it comes with the Joomla core.
At the Joomla Community Magazine, we love it when people write books about Joomla (and maybe even more when these people are our own team members!).

In this article I will give you a short overview of the “Articles – Most Read” Module. This module is part of Joomla! Core, so you can use it out of the box, and you don’t need to install any extension to use it.
