On May 6-8th Eddie, Jeremy and Myself, members of the Joomlashack team, had the pleasure of attending this years J and Beyond, an international Joomla Conference. The event was great. It was a weekend filled with the sharing of information and ideas through presentations, conversations, networking, and friendship building.
FREE EasyBlog extension with purchase of our newest 1.6 template, Simplepraise--First 50 customers only
Today we released a brand new Joomla 1.5 / 1.6 template called JS Simplepraise.
Simplepraise is a simple, yet elegant template that's easy on the eyes and even easier to customize. It's clean design (with generous white space) will allow your visitors to easily scan and quickly retrieve the information they are looking for when they visit your site. And it's simply perfect for any website--especially news sites, blogs or communities. No bloat. No clutter. Just clean, simple web 2.0 design...
'corePHP' and Joomlashack team up to create kaGO Commerce, an exciting new Joomla shopping cart extension

Until now, if you needed a reliable and feature-rich Joomla-based e-commerce solution, there were precious few choices out there.
So when our friends at ‘corePHP’ approached us last year about partnering with them in the development of a new Joomla shopping cart/ e-commerce solution, we were thrilled.
We've just released a brand new colorful Joomla 1.5 / 1.6 template today, appropriately called JS Pigment
As I mentioned in my last blog post, Joomlashack pledged to donate 50% of Tuesday's sales to help the victims of last week's devastating earthquake & tsunami in Japan.
I'm proud to announce that thanks to our loyal customers, Joomlashack was able to make a very generous donation to the American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity on Friday.
Thanks are also in order to PayPal and Missionfish-- a wonderful service which allowed us to wire 100% of our donation through PayPal to both charities quickly and easily and with no fees!
Again, on behalf of everyone here at the 'Shack, thank you so much for helping us help the good people of Japan during this very difficult time.
One of the many cool things about working for an online company, like Joomlashack, is that you can log in and work from the comfort of your own home. We all get to see our families a bit more each day; can work in our PJs all day if we want; and never, ever have to worry about long commutes to work. It's a pretty sweet deal.
Our team is spread out all over the world, so working out of one central office would be a bit difficult at the moment. And that's why Skype has been such a godsend to us. It’s allowed our team to stay connected to each other despite us all being in multiple timezones.
I don't want to wait till the month is over to thank our customers and fans for making September the best month in Joomlashack's 5 year history. We work very hard to create all these great products and your purchases, loyalty, and encouraging testimonials motivate us to work even harder. To loosely quote Mike Mulligan from the loved children's book, when so many of you are watching us, we strive to work much harder and better.
This is a perfect time to say how proud I am of the Joomlashack Team: Amanda, TJ, Forest, Shawn, Jeremy, Gary, Christopher, Casey and David. Just last month this great team launched an unprecedented 4 Joomla templates, 3 Premium Wordpress Themes, 3 New Professional Drupal Themes, the awesome Joomla Extension Lifestream, and a whole batch of new courses, classes and Joomla video tutorials for the University.
This month, we launched the cool and refreshing Cascada Joomla template, the ultra modern Nuvo Joomla 1.5 template, a free Wordpress Theme, a free Drupal Theme, as well as updates for Lifestream, and more Joomla lessons for the University.
Again thank you, and please keep watching us as we'll be launching more top-notch templates, themes, and training materials to help you with your online presence.
Like Joomla, we've gone through some big changes since then, especially the past year or so--a new team, new Premium Joomla Templates, launching Joomlashack University, releasing new Joomla Extensions and now our own Wordpress Themes & Drupal Themes, too!
Big changes, indeed--but one thing that will never change at the 'Shack is our commitment to bringing you the very BEST Joomla (and other CMS) products at the very BEST value anywhere.
We want to thank you all for making Joomlashack so successful these past 5 years. Here's to another 5!
We've just released over 50 minutes of new video lessons in the Intermediate course in Joomlashack University.
In the Blogging With Joomla learning module, you'll find two new videos:
When we launched Joomlashack University back in October, we knew Joomla beginners would flock to our rich library of step-by-step videos and written tutorials. And then they did in droves. But what to do when they're ready for more?
The Intermediate Joomla Course
With our first crop of students ready to move into new learning territory, we've loaded the Intermediate course with over 2.5 hours of new video tutorials, including:
