Issues by Year
The concept of an open-source, 100% community project may seem to be a small portion of the software industry today. It was even less common over 10 years ago when Joomla! was founded. However, 100% volunteer organisations have been around for many years - providing relief to those in crisis and facing all sorts of challenges, promoting social change, and encouraging personal improvement. Each of these organisations rely on people to contribute to the cause solely to help other people.
We had a look at our site stats in 2016 and found great articles that are examples of what makes a great magazine. In this issue, we are counting down the Top-10 Joomla! Community Magazine (JCM) 2016 articles that received the most views throughout the past year.
It's April and the change of the season brings great news for the Joomla Community. In this article, we will highlight some points of interest for our readers. JaB'17 awardees have been announced, Joomla! 3.x series is coming to an end and Joomla! 3.7 Beta 4 has been released, bringing some great and cool new features.
It is always a challenge to give a Blog category view a unique and attractive look.
I have recently taken over as the team lead of the Capitals Committee, which is the part of the organisation in charge of handling our income from sponsorships and advertising. One of my first tasks is to get some stickers designed for use at tradeshows. The thing about stickers is that they are small and are not very good promotional material unless people actually stick them on something (ideally their laptop, car, office wall, bags or similar visible area).
JoomlaDay's are an excellent way to unite our community on a local level and this year's JoomlaDay Florida went far beyond Florida. Joomlers from across the United States, South American, Canada, Europe, and Jamaica took part in the two-day Joomla showcase.

Last year Joomla! made its first appearance at HostingCon Global 2016, the premier hosting and networking conference. The four-day event was a complete success with a two-hour session on how Joomla! can increase your ROI and the Joomla! in the Exposition Hall. We made many new friends and connections. Mike Demopolous was on fire, holding over forty one-on-one meetings that gained several new sponsors for the project.
В конце 2014 года владелец iJoomla.com и JomSocial.com Мерав Нафо любезно согласилась побеседовать с журналом "Joomla! Community Magazine" о главных для ее команды моментах в 2014 году, но ввиду непредвиденных организационных проблем это интервью публикуется только сейчас. Читайте в нем о том, как она стала новым "шерифом" в "городке" JomSocial, который она приобрела в 2012 году; о том, как она и ее команда стремятся вызвать у своих покупателей "Ого!"; о ее любимом блюде "Суши" и о том, как сегодняшний выпускник должен подходить к осуществлению своей мечты создать свой собственный бизнес по веб-разработкам.

The Joomla Community Magazine (JCM) cannot exist without Joomla community members freely sharing their knowledge and time.
These days it seems that in social networks, only negative comments are published. If a new initiative is launched, there are negative critics about why it is done and why it was not done otherwise. Also, there are those who aim to point out what is missing to complete it and that without it is useless. If you decide not to implement an idea, critics can only say that it was a bad idea. These comments are created without thinking, the product of elaborating a critic in 5 minutes, and dumped forever in social media. Without considering the time and effort of the volunteers, who in their precious free time, collaborate with the project.
in March 2015 the Joomla! Project announced its partnership with Glip, a business messaging app with built-in productivity tools. This partnership has enabled Joomla to streamline communication among its many teams and volunteers while providing a unified approach to tracking tasks, files and events. Over the last month, the JCM Public Room was created to facilitate the discussion and exchange of ideas between the JCM Team and anyone who is interested in contributing to the magazine.
The first of many virtual events reminds Joomla! newbies and professionals that keeping their Joomla! website updated is not an option it's a responsibility.
Introtext is a very important element for blogs as they give us the first impression of a post. In most cases introtext is composed by the first one or two paragraphs of the main article.
