Issues by Year

For the third time a JoomlaDay took place in Mexico, this year on July 17-18, a 2-day event organized by the Official Mexico City JUG. I can summarize the #JdayMX14 by saying that it was: participatory, international, and with many new faces.

Meetings between Joomla! enthusiasts surprise me each time! These EXCELLENT people who want to study in order to know everything about Joomla. Relationships become something more than only a common training, work, or doing business. Warmly, I thank you for the time spent together and these happy moments together. Our first Lower Silesia meeting of Joomla enthusiasts was held on the first day of holidays, June 6, 2014. I will repeat it once again: IT WAS EXCELLENT!

Et si on se penchait sur la sécurité de votre site Joomla! ? Vous l’aimez bien votre site, vous le trouvez beau ; vous y avez consacré tellement d'énergie. Vous êtes fier du résultat et nul doute que vous pouvez l'être. Votre site est beau et utile.  Vous l’avez mis sur le net pour en faire profiter le plus grand nombre. Permettez-moi de faire une comparaison : imaginons que votre site devienne votre maison. Quand vous n’êtes pas chez vous, laissez-vous la porte ouverte ? Vos baies vitrées sont-elles grandes ouvertes en votre absence ? Non, bien sûr. Et votre site internet ? Avez-vous songé à fermer les portes et les fenêtres afin d'éviter que des cambrioleurs n'y pénètrent ?

At the end of 2013 I was asked to develop a web app for creating interactive calculators called Calculoid. It was as exciting for me as for a kid at candy store, first because I was the one who could choose technologies for this project, and second because it was the same week the shiny new Joomla Framework was released. I decided to develop the app as a Single Page Application (SPA) with AngularJS at the client side and at the server side I decided to use, as you can probably guess, the Joomla Framework.

Les réseaux sociaux sont devenus totalement incontournables. Est-ce un bien, est-ce un mal ? Difficile de juger, mais leur intégration dans les sites web, quels qu'ils soient, est devenu inévitable. Echanger des informations concernant son site avec Facebook et Google+ ne peut plus être ignoré des webmasters. A tel point que Facebook, toujours à la pointe de ce genre d'ouverture a diffusé en 2010 une API pour ce faire : Open Graph. Comme toute API, celle-ci a ses règles, les ignorer ou pour le moins ne pas connaître leurs grands principes conduit à des fonctionnements... étranges. Dans cet article, vous allez apprendre à ajouter des meta-tags à vos articles afin que Facebook et consors sachent plus précisément ce que vous souhaitez mettre en avant. Avant d'aller plus loin avec Open Graph, commençons par un petit tour d'horizon de ce que l'on peut faire avec Joomla! sans (gros) effort.

GSoC 2014 with the Project named SQL Optimization for Joomla CMS has come to an end which can be considered as a success full project according to my opinion. This project was not only otoptimize the queries but also to analyze the weaknesses and to find solution as well as research in new enhancements. After four months of hard work I came up with some solutions which can be identfied as the first step of a long journey of Joomla!'s database optimization. The vision of this project was to give my contribution to make Joomla! better than other Content Management Syetems and I hope I have given a contribution which will be a starting step of a long journey.

Joomla is very flexible and has many possibilities. A disadvantage is that working with Joomla can seem complex because of all of the setting and navigation choices. For a Joomla specialist this is usually not an issue, but for many end users it can be a stumbling block. Adding new articles via the Joomla frontend is often one of the first things end users face. This should be a simple operation, but many experience this as very complex.
