Joomla How To
Here's a 12 minute sample of one of our latest video tutorials at Joomlashack University called "Automating daily site backups with Akeeba Backup Pro."
Akeeba Backup is one of the most popular and most helpful extensions for Joomla that there is.
With Akeeba Backup Pro, the paid version, you can make it even more useful by setting it up to automatically make daily backups of your site and have those backup files sent to a server of your choice, such as an Amazon S3 or Rackspace Cloudfiles account.
In this video lesson, you'll see how to set up a Cloudfile account and how to configure Akeeba Backup Pro to automatically send it's daily backup files to the Cloudfile account.
We recently released a very informative, in-depth training lesson in our Joomlashack University on how to set up and use the Wordpress for Joomla! extension by corePHP. Wordpress for Joomla! is a powerful new Joomla extension that allows you to use Wordpress blogging software inside your Joomla website. With Wordpress for Joomla, you can enjoy the best blogging platform integrated with the best content management system available. You can even use Wordpress plugins and Joomla modules all at the same time, on the same blog. It's amazing.
In this new Quickshot preview of Wordpress for Joomla, JSU instructor Forest Linden gives you a very brief overview of just a few of the many cool features that Wordpress for Joomla! has to offer.

In October we launched as a "Joomla for Beginners" Joomla Training course, but with plans to become so much more. The incredible response (over 400 students in under 80 days) provided us with excellent feedback about ShackU and where we should take it.
What do our students want next? More learning! More Joomla lessons, more Joomla videos and Joomla tutorials, more information about how to grow their Joomla business in 2010. We've already doubled our Joomla training content in just 3 months!
Now we are pleased to launch our latest course, Intermediate Joomla Training, included as a part of your ShackU membership!
You're no Joomla beginner. What can ShackU teach you?
Since 2005 Joomlashack has been a leader in Joomla education. Hundreds of thousands have read our original free joomla tutorials, and many have taken our live classes, or attended our sessions at Joomla events. But one question we keep getting asked is:
"So when can I take an online Joomla training class?"
In 2008, Brian launched his Teaching Sells course. A complete guide to setting up and running and online paid membership websites. It was insanely popular, I joined up right when his doors opened, and so did people like Aaron Wall (of SEO Book).
After 2 rounds of students, Brian closed his doors and has been busy improving it, until now, when he has opened them up again. He only has 500 spots, and I reckon this course will soon be full and you'll have missed your chance. His last round sold out the 300 spots at $997 a pop in about 48 hours!
Head to TeachingSells.com and check it his new video.
