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.

In 2008, our sister site, Compass Designs ran a series of successful single day training classes for Joomla across new England. One question we was asked again and again was "when will you be running classes in 2009?"
People had mentioned interest in different types of classes and perhaps different locations. So, we have created a survey for anyone interested in Joomla training to fill out, and from that we'll be determining the most popular combinations of location and class type.

You may have noticed that Joomlashack is now running on Joomla 1.5. We did a stealth migration yesterday.
We had one problem we needed to address, and it took a while to figure out, so we thought we would share the solution for others.
Our old site used Joomla 1.0, as I have mentioned before, we wanted to make sure we did a 301 redirect of the Joomla URL's so Google would quickly pick up the new ones and pass the pagerank to the new pages. The problem however was that our 1.0 site used the raw URL:
We rapidly discovered that mod-write unfortunately will basically ignore all the php parameters here. You can't get rewrite to pay any attention to them.
