Building Joomla Extensions With Component Creator

Building Joomla Extensions With Component Creator

In recent month, we've released classes showing you how to code your own Joomla extensions. These 4 classes covered how to create components, modules, and plugins.

In this week's class, "Building Joomla Extensions With Component Creator", we show you how to use the Component Creator service to speed up your development. This online tool quickly creates the complete, installable framework for your site.

In this class, Cory shows you how to create a com_movies extension with reviews, release dates, actors, genres and much more. All this without writing a line of code!

Join Joomlashack University or the Everything Club to get access to all these development classes.

What Extensions Should OSMap Support?

osmap google joomla

OSMap is the most popular sitemap extension for Joomla.

Currently, OSMap supports 7 extensions, using plugins from Joomlashack. These are Content, Weblinks, K2, Kunena, Mosets Tree, SobiPro, and Virtuemart.

Over 40 more extensions are supported, thanks to other developers.

We'd like to add official OSMap support for more extensions. Do you have any suggestions for extensions that are not yet covered, or that Joomlashack should support?

Ideally we're looking for extensions that meet these criteria:

  • Are used on a large number of Joomla sites
  • Contain a lot of valuable content

Click here to let us know what extensions OSMap should support.

The 4th Joomla Development Class is Here

 

How to Develop Joomla Components. Part 2

We are delighted to publish the 4th major class in our Joomla development series. These 4 classes now cover all the key areas of building Joomla extensions.

We've worked with Cory Webb, a Joomla developer since 2005, to create this series of 70 videos.

This 4th class is called "How to Develop Joomla Components. Part 2: the Frontend".

In these videos, you'll finish building the todo list component that was started in Part 1. 

Join Joomlashack University for access to all these videos

Cory shows you how Joomla uses the MVC pattern for component development. You'll learn how to build Models, Views and Controllers in the recommended Joomla way. You'll also see how to create router files and language files, plus how to package your work for distribution.

Here's Why We Use Recurring Subscriptions at Joomlashack

Recurring Subscriptions are Key for Sustainable Joomla Businesses

It's not easy to build a strong and sustainable business.

That's true whether your business is in construction, retail, food, farming, or any other industry.

It's definitely not easy to build a strong and sustainable business in Joomla. The platform is over 10 years old and the user-base is active, but not growing quickly.

However, over the last two years, we've managed to grow Joomlashack. Our revenues have doubled every six months. This enables us to add more developers and support staff, plus push out frequent product updates. 94% of Joomlashack tickets get a reply inside 3 hours, and 90% of users say the support is "great".

Yes, we have some good extensions and templates, but one thing has made that growth possible: recurring subscriptions.

Some customers are upset about this, so I want to talk through the reasons behind this decision.
