The current Joomla Extensions Directory (JED) features a system that has worked very well up to this point, but it has simply outgrown itself. There is a demand for new features and functionality, and the JED Team is seeking proposals from developers interested in creating a new 3.x listing management extension for a shiny, new Joomla Extensions Directory.
During the last years I got more and more involved in the organisation of two large Joomla! events that are hosted by the German Joomla! Association. Those two events, the Joomla!Day Germany and the international Joomla! conference J&Beyond are held once a year and attended by 200-250 people from all around globe, so it seems to be reasonable to call them "quite big". Since this year, I'm basically "in charge" of all things related to the technical realisation and with this post I want to give you a look behind the scenes, share some lessons that I had to learn, and tell you some best practices that developed over the past few years.
Sticking to a deadline can be a challenge in an Open Source project like Joomla! that is run entirely by volunteers. On the magazine, the first of the month is a deadline we cannot miss, and haven't in over three years. We launch on weekends, weekdays, birthdays, vacation days, even New Year's Day! But in order to keep bringing you all the Joomla news that's fit to print, we are dusting off and adding definition to our submission guide…
The Joomla! World Conference is coming up soon! It will be held on November 8-10, 2013 at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts (USA). If you have never attended a Joomla event before, this is the event to attend. If you are a regular at Joomla events, this is the one you don't want to miss! Learn more: http://conference.joomla.org/
To SEO or not to SEO, that is the question! There is a wide variety of views on the topic, whether it is necessary to use specific extensions that improve SEO positioning, if it is a good idea to employ people to help with this and to create strategies etc….or, whether that doing all of this won’t pay off as you are forced to change strategy each time Google makes changes to their SEO policy...
Trop souvent, nous sommes attaqués par des scripts malveillants qui tentent de pénétrer notre site Joomla! afin d'injecter du spam dans les commentaires du site, les forums, pages d'or, ... et, bien sûr, pour générer des utilisateurs fantômes qui, s'ils sont automatiquement approuvés, disposeront alors d'un niveau "utilisateur enregistré" qui leur permettra probablement de poster des données et donc, du spam.
Il y a quelques techniques efficaces à mettre en place sur son site Joomla! afin de diminuer cette menace.
Deux techniques concernent le fichier .htaccess et l'autre, la gestion des utilisateurs.
This is Step 2 in the Rebuilding Our Site series. We had to upgrade from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5. This entry discusses the tools and tactics we considered when upgrading to a newer version of Joomla.
Wer hat an der Uhr gedreht? Wie die Zeit vergeht, wenn man Artikel schreiben soll - und es wird jedes Mal wieder knapp zum Stichtag hin. Wahrscheinlich geht es den Leuten, die ihre Erweiterungen dokumentieren müssen genauso. Meistens sehen wir Benutzer uns ja nur die Demo an, lesen die Kurzbeschreibung und laden dann das Teil herunter und installieren es ... Aber da fehlt ein Schritt dazwischen; sehen wir uns doch kurz an, warum wir die Doku lesen sollten ...
With 164 user groups around the world, there is always something exciting and interesting happening in the Joomla! Community - and I hope to produce a monthly round-up highlighting new Joomla! User Groups, events, and reviews of JUG meetings.
Seeing how are open source technologies can make a real difference in someone's life is something quite special, but see how it can help a nation to develop into the central hub for technology is just inspiring.
Joomla!Day Kenya was my first visit to Africa, and I really didn't know what to expect. I had heard there was a lot of suport for Open Source technologies in Kenya and Africa as a whole, with there already being several Joomla! user groups in existence across Africa, but none in Kenya ... yet.
Est-ce déjà l'heure ? … Je suppose que c'est la même chose pour les personnes qui écrivent des documentations sur leurs extensions. La plupart d'entre nous, en temps qu'utilisateurs, regardent simplement la démo, la description courte, puis nous téléchargeons et installons...
Mais laissez-moi vous donner quelques raisons pour lesquelles nous devons consulter la documentation.
