We're Retiring Some Joomlashack Templates

Joomlashack logoEarlier this week, we published our roadmap for Joomlashack.

One of the key points on the roadmap was this:

"We're going to focus. During the last 11 years, Joomlashack has released over 100 templates. That's just too many to keep updated and supported. Over the next few weeks, we're going to retire some older templates, particular those that are only available for Joomla 1.5 or 2.5. All future releases will be for Joomla 3 only."

So, today we're releasing more details around that decision.

Joomlashack and OSTraining

Joomlashack is now part of OSTraining

As you may know, Joomlashack University became powered by OSTraining in 2013. Since then, Eddie (the CEO of Joomlashack) and I have continued to collaborate on a number of ventures and companies.

Eddie, who has become an integral part of the OSTraining team, asked me to help him with Joomlashack. He wanted Joomlashack to move forward more quickly and with more resources.

Enter the OSTraining team of developers, designers, and support staff …

We have taken over Joomlashack’s template and extension development projects. We'll strive to increase product launches, as we bring the company's technological excellence on par with the high standards we have at OSTraining and Alledia.

You need to migrate to Joomla 3 now

Joomla! just released their last beta release 3.5.1. We will need to wait a little longer for the stable version.

For those of you keeping your sites up to date, this new release will be a common procedure. However, if you have not been updating your Joomla site, findings reveal the need to upgrade/migrate to the latest stable version. Doing this will eliminate risks from vulnerabilities possibly found in old versions.

Please, don't become part of the statistics.

Why migrate your site?

We cannot explain this better than the good folks from Joomla.org. Read their reasons HERE. In short: you NEED to upgrade your site!
