Joomla

  • Joomla 3 has been released!

    This is the latest version of my favourite Content Management System, and promises a whole raft of new features as detailed at http://www.joomla.org/3/

    The general recommendation seems to be that if you have an existing Joomla 2.5 site that is working, stick with it. However, if you want to create a new site without a great need for extensions, then it's probably worth a look.

    At the moment there aren't many extensions available, but this will definitely change as time moves on.

  • The Joomla! project has released version 3.0.1 which is a security release for the newly released Joomla! 3. As there was a small error in the update code, you will need to install a patch before doing the update to Joomla! 3.0.1. There are more details available at http://www.joomla.org/announcements/release-news/5468-joomla-3-0-1-released.html.

  • Joomla 3.1 has been released and is available for download at the Joomla website here.

  • The chaps over at JoomlArt have created this rather neat infographic about the 10 major new features in the recently released Joomla 3.2.

  • So today sees the release of Joomla 3.2. Whilst this is still a point release, Joomla 3.2 is one of the Joomla foundations largest release ever, because of the sheer number of bug fixes and new features. There have been over 1000 commits made to the code, with 50 different people contributing to the project.

    Whilst bug fixes are incredibly important there are some incredible new features. More information is available in the release notes.

  • Version 3.4 of the ever popular Joomla CMS has been released today.

    More details are available directly from the Joomla website - Joomla! 3.4 is here!

    The main features of this release are:-

    • Improved front end module editing
    • Decoupling of weblinks
    • Composer integration
    • Google new reCaptcha
  • In the process of rebuilding my website at cheekie.net with the beta version of Joomla 1.7, I kept running into an issue whenever I added any custom HTML code into the site. Whenever I created a module to add the custom code required to use StatCounter or other custom modifications, the code would be mangled or deleted completely every time the module was saved.

    To overcome this you need to modify 2 things in Joomla.

  • Joomla 2.5 launches tomorrow, so I thought I'd point those of you who are interested in this content management system to an article about the new features at http://community.joomla.org/blogs/community/1533-new-features-in-joomla-25.html by Andrea Tarr.

  • Run on over to www.joomla.org/announcements/release-news/5546-joomla-3-3-0-released.html, and you'll see the latest version of Joomla has been released.

    After a brief run through it would seem that although there are some really nice headline features such as a shift to JQuery and a greater focus on Microdata; this release is more a case of releasing code in to the core rather than usable functionality.

  • Ever wanted to create a website but don't know how to create one?

    You could write your site in HTML from scratch.  HTML is the acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language - the 'script' behind the greater percentage of websites. HTML is very easy to learn and write and is really quite intuitive.  Why not read more about it at the World Wide Web Consortium, (W3C), website.
