The End for sh404SEF? Hopefully not!

sh404sef-logoI woke up this morning to a blog post from Yannick Gaultier, developer of the immensely popular Joomla SEF extension sh404SEF.

For reasons know only to himself, he can no longer spend time on developing and supporting sh404SEF. When I first heard it, my heart sunk a bit, but it turned out it might not be as bad as it looks.


In case you missed it: JoomlaPraise released their new AdminPraise Lite template last week. And it's all free, all GPL!

The Fastest Joomla! Admin Template ever

AdminPraise Lite is a super lightweight Joomla! administrator panel template. Intelligent shortcuts, logical placement, and customization combine to bring you a totally optimized Joomla! experience.

Some people doesn't even know that there are back-end templates for Joomla available out there. Actually, they are as easy to install as the front-end templates.
