We released a new version of Civic, a Joomla template that's perfect for several types of websites, especially those that rely on video.
Many video displays are hard-to-configure, so we focused on making Civic as simple as possible. Especially for Civic, we added a new "mute" feature in the OSYouTube plugin. This makes it easy to have a beautiful, and silent, video on your homepage.
Additionally, Civic is now compatible with the very last version of the Wright framework.

We will do this with a neat technique thanks to Lodder from JoomJunk.co.uk.

Joomla development has been the most requested topic by Joomlashack University members.
So, I'm delighted to release another in a series of several Joomla development classes. We've worked with Cory Webb, a Joomla developer since 2005, to produce a series of classes on building extensions.
This new class is called "How to Develop Joomla Components. Part 1: the Administrator".
This class follows on from "How to Develop Joomla Modules" and "How to Develop Joomla Plugins".
