A few weeks ago, we wrote about 6 possible new features in Joomla 3.7.
Well, one feature is guaranteed for Joomla 3.7. That feature is improved URLs.
Joomla 3.7 will allow you to remove the numbers from URLs.
In this post, I'll show you how to test this upcoming feature. This guide is for testing purposes only. Please don’t use this for production sites yet!
When creating modules in Joomla, you may have seen a "Module Class Suffix" option.
When you add menu links in Joomla, you may have seen a "Page Class" option.
Did you know that these two features are very closely related? These features allow you to add custom CSS to specific modules or pages. This makes suffixes a really good way to style individual modules and pages.
Many Joomla template designers rely heavily on these suffixes to create their unique designs.
In the videos below, we'll introduce you to page and module suffixes. These videos are part of our "CSS for Joomla" class which is available inside Joomlashack University.
Joomla 3.6.3 was released on October 18th.
This is a bug-fix release that fixed over 300 issues. You can see the complete list of bug-fixes on Github.
As with any release, some users may see one or two glitches. In this post, we'll keep a list of any glitches that are reported.
Joomla 3 is a wonderful way to build websites!
It's been nearly three years since the last update to Joomla 2.5, so we want to help anyone stuck on 2.5.
We've released a 100% free class from Joomlashack University. This class explains how to move Joomla 2.5 sites to Joomla 3.
Joomla itself updates smoothly from 2.5 to 3. The main issues occur with extensions or templates that haven't been adapted for Joomla 3. Watch these videos, and you should be ready to migrate. If you need help, click here to talk with our Joomla migration experts.
If you are a Joomla developer, and you are creating your own extension or template, it will often happen that you need a nice way to organize your output so that it looks neat on the page.
A good way to do this is using a tab set, that is, a clickable set of information panes.
This article shows how to do this using Joomla Bootstrap. The Bootstrap framework is a jQuery plugin which is distributed as part of the Joomla core.
The image below has an example of tabs in action:
Joomla developers are working hard on Joomla 3.7, and they are proposing a lot of exciting changes.
In this post, I'm going to give you a preview of 6 new features that may be added to Joomla 3.7.
We're not even at the Alpha phase of development for 3.7 yet, so nothing is set in stone. I'm sure the developers would love more feedback and testing on these great ideas. I've added a Github link next to each proposed improvement, so you know how to get involved.
We occasionally get reports of some Joomlashack users experiencing this error:
[OSSystem] Alledia framework not found
This problem is normally caused by not uninstalling a Joomlashack extension correctly. We use the Alledia framework to power many of our extensions.
Here's how to solve this message.
OSCampus is the new Learning Management System (LMS) for Joomla. OSCampus is incredibly robust and is already used by 1,000's of people every week.
In this getting started guide, I'll show you how to add OSCampus to your site.
OSCampus is organized in a very simple way: Classes contain Lessons. Everything is a secondary feature, so we'll focus on setting up those core elements.
Some of the most common errors we see on Joomla sites involve plugins.
A normal Joomla site will have dozens of plugins, so they are a common source of errors.
In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to disable a troublesome plugin, using three different techniques.
The first technique is the normal way to disable a plugin. The second and third techniques can be used if the plugin has locked you out of Joomla's administrator area.
Joomla 3.6.2 has just been released (soon after version 3.6.1) and we recommend that you update.
These releases squashed some bugs and also fixes some low and medium-level security issues.
One security issue was especially tricky to fix and was related to how Joomla updates. As a result, the Joomla team have recommended a slightly different approach when updating your sites to Joomla 3.6.2.
