Making workflows that work for you

workflows-joomla

I like the word workflow. It makes me feel more organised just by saying it. When my work flows I’m happy.

Safeguarding Your Joomla Content Against AI Crawlers

2024---JCM-Template-tipstricks-aicrawlers

Joomla is no exception to the trend towards artificial intelligence, and there are extensions that allow you to link up with it and use it to create content, but it may also be that you don't want your content to be used to feed this enormous knowledge base.

2024--JCM-Template-icon-article-title

A while ago someone asked in a Mattermost channel how to add an icon to the article titles in a blog layout. My first impulse was “with CSS of course!”.

2024-JCM-April-TUF

Joomla is built by many talented individuals, carefully reviewing every code contribution made to the project to ensure that a secure system is built.

Green websites help to keep your feet dry

2024-JCM-April-Green-Dry-Feet

Being green to try and lessen global warming has become part of everyday life for some; for others, it's something that doesn't affect them, or so they think. If we are serious about looking after the environment, we should see some serious changes in how we do things.
