Issues by Year

Je suis père. Cela sonne un peu comme une confession, mais ceux qui me connaissent savent que j’adore les enfants. Actuellement, j'en ai trois et j’espère bien en avoir d’autres dans un futur proche. Etre parent m’a énormément appris. J’ai notamment appris qu’il existe un étrange phénomène qui veut que mes enfants n’écoutent pas ce que je leur demande tant que je ne l’ai pas répété maintes et maintes fois. C’est intriguant car cela ne semble pas toujours être le cas. En effet, cela ne se produit que dans certains cas, et généralement lorsqu’ils doivent faire quelque chose qu’ils n’ont pas particulièrement envie de faire. C'est excessivement fatiguant et au bout d’un certain temps, cela devient véritablement pénible de toujours devoir me répéter.

“I want my website to integrate with Facebook.” It might sound specific, but it’s not. Facebook is a huge website and Joomla is an ever evolving CMS so the ways the two can work together are varied and interesting. Being clear with what you want (and don’t want) will help you get the Facebook integration you want on your website.

A few years ago I had a very simple view of what I understood I did and who I was when it came to website creation. I described my business as Website Design and myself as a website designer.

In my first article, I posed the idea that Joomla! could be the next "killer app" for professional writers. In this article, I compare Joomla to commercial help development tools and, hopefully, provide writers with a compelling case for switching to Joomla. I think Joomla offers the best path forward in the evolution of help development.

It's easy to take custom content types for granted these days. After all, Joomla 3.2 has core advances that make many CCKs seem totally unnecessary. Despite these improvements, clients still value a tailored experience. From the site form to the final layout, a custom content type will give your clients a simplified publishing platform.

La più importante funzionalità rilasciata con la versione 3.2 di Joomla!, a mio avviso, è senza dubbio la cosidetta "Joomla Extension Finder aka Install from Web", permette di installare le estensioni presenti nel JED (Joomla Extensions Directory) in maniera semplice e rapida comodamente dal pannello di controllo.

I'm a parent. That tends to sound a bit like a confession. But most people who know me also know that I love kids. I have three children right now, and hope to add more in the near future. I've learned many things from being a parent. I learned there is a strange phenomenon with children where they cannot hear something they are told unless I tell them multiple times. It's interesting because it doesn't seem to be all the time, only certain times, and usually only those times when they need to do something they don't particularly want to do. And I really get tired of repeating myself. It gets quite annoying after a while.

Working Progress on the Joomla Certifications: a project in which the presence of the members of the Joomla community who speak Spanish is very important; a project where there are more than a dozen countries and various continents; a project, in summary, that will be born from the fusion of experience so diverse and different, that it will mark a before and after in the quality of the certifications of a CMS.

Let's continue with our series of articles on Joomla for non-technologists. In the previous article we saw what the “extensions” are, such as templates, components, modules or plugins for our CMS. In this article we are going to start by understanding what occurs when installing Joomla on a server, and afterwards go a little further into some of the concepts which many times the technicians consider to be clear...
