joomla-week-04Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during the last week.

Brian Teeman's been busy this week - presenting three posts about various Joomla topics. That's what happens when you travel, I guess - you get inspired!

There's also a post about the first JoomlaDay Chile by Ryan Ozimek.

Lastly, Amy Stephen has taken a look at how to create overrides for the Joomla! 1.6 menu item metadata.xml file. Warning: Geek stuff ;)

Have a great week!

Joomla Day Chile took place last week, and Ryan Ozimek shares his experiences from the event. There is also a post on the road ahead for Joomla 1.6.

joomla-week-02Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during the last week.

Of course, the hot topic in the Joomla sphere last week was the release of version 1.6.

Brian Teeman has done a post with links to movies, presentations and articles about Joomla 1.6. Ryan Ozimek presented Joomla at CodeMash, Amy Stephen has looked at overriding 1.6 framework classes and the project thanks the volunteers.

In other news, there is info on the Santiago Times Joomla site, about Joomla friendly hosting and the release of NinjaBoard 1.0, to mention some.

migration-traffic-illAs I wrote yesterday, lots of people are talking about the migration of websites from Joomla 1.5 to 1.6.

Yesterday's interview with developer Matias Aguirre has resulted in a connection between him an more people in the community. I hope this will result in a powerful and stable migration script as soon as possible.

I also noticed a sharp increase in the traffic to my 2009 post Migration from Joomla 1.5 to 1.6 will be easy. There's no doubt that this subject is something people are concerned about.

Joomla! 1.6.0 released!

joomla-16-ga-releasedToday, Joomla! 1.6.0 has been released. The wait has been long, and now it's finally here!

Of course, there are still things to be resolved. The version is not released as stable, because it still contains bugs.

Even so, I think it's important to get the software out there. Developers need to rewrite their extensions. Template designers need to update and create new templates. Users need to test and learn the new version.

joomla-week-01Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during the last week.

And Anthony Olsen shares his and Kyle Ledbetter's top Joomla templates for 2010.

Sneak peek at the upcoming redesign

joomla-org-redesign-122010After some years with the same design for, it's time for some changin'. A team of designers and usability experts are working hard on the redesign. The process will focus on a new visual design and increased usability for the site.

Some alterations have already been implemented, like the mega menu now found on The site has millions of hits every month. It's divided into several sub sites and sections, which has made it hard to navigate it and find what you're looking for.

The need for more international focus (multi-language and local info) has also become apparent as Joomla has expanded throughout the world.


Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during the last week.

There is a post about upgrading to Joomla 1.6, some info from Joomla Bamboo about their new products, a new version of Tienda ecommerce, some thoughts on the introduction of "virtual currency" for the Joomla community, as well as some ideas for making Joomla more powerful.

Enjoy the read!
