Shackslides it now dices and slices

We are as excited about our new updated version of Shackslides as the host of an infomercial is about his Ginsu knives. This practical and reliable slideshow module has been used already in thousands of sites. It's one of our best selling products - - one being bought with almost every template we sell. What I'm getting at is that it was already a great product and now it's even better.

Today, we're excited to announce the release of our very first Joomlashack extension called Lifestream!

Lifestream for Joomla integrates your social network feeds and displays them ALL in one place!

It's a powerful new component & module that dynamically updates your website with all your social network activities and RSS feeds. You can set it to display as separate streams or as one integrated social stream that includes all of your social network updates. You can display your 'life streams' in side-by-side windows, tab view or in one window.

Imagine the power and convenience of sharing your Flickr pics, YouTube videos, Facebook status updates, blog posts, RSS feeds, Twitter tweets and moreall from one website. Cool huh?

Lifestream for Joomla now makes that possible!

ninjaforgeOne of the greatest things about Joomla is it's extendability.  If you need a forum, a shop solution, a module to display weather, etc.,  you can bet there's probably a solution available.  With over 4,600 extensions listed in the Joomla Extensions Directory at the time of this writing, Joomla users are presented with a myriad of options to extend the base functionality of their Joomla powered site.

While having such choice is an awesome thing for the Joomla end user or site developer, it can at times present some 'formatting' issues. Often times the end user might find themselves out of luck, going back and forth between a template provider and extension developer for support, with each pointing the finger at the other as the cause of a formatting issue.

Perhaps it's time to start slicing up the status quo and approach extension 'design' from a new direction.

JomSocialJomSocial is quickly becoming a "have to have" extension for Joomla 1.5.

In a time when "social networks"are becoming what we think of as "websites," JomSocial is a huge opportunity for almost any Joomla website owner.

When we first started experimenting with JomSocial almost a year ago, we were impressed with the potential of building your own social network inside your existing Joomla site. It seemed to us that Azrul and his talented team had developed something very cool, and very useful, that would really blossom over time.

Now, the flower has fruited, and JomSocial has really arrived.
