How to Enable Single Sign-on (SSO) in Joomla

Enable Single Sign-on (SSO) in Joomla

Single sign-on (SSO) is a very useful tool for managing multiple sites.

Single sign-on is often used by large companies that have many different software platforms. If all those platforms are connected using Single sign-on, then users only need to remember one username and password.

I've also seen Single sign-on used by Joomla agencies. If you are managing 200+ sites, it can be impossible to remember the login details for all those sites.

Joomla 4 Will Have a New Default Search Extension

Joomla 4 is making steady progress with Beta releases every month or so.

One important change has been introduced recently: there is now a new default search extension. The old com_search has been replaced by com_finder.

This isn't an entirely new extension because com_finder was available in Joomla 3: it was called "Smart Search". So for several years, Joomla has had two search extensions in the core. This did not make much sense, and so it's good to remove one of them. The old com_search will join other retired extensions, such as Weblinks, as an optional Joomla download.

Earlier this year, I was working with the Joomlashack team on a project. We were busy and the work was difficult.

Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that sales were slow, but I didn't pay too much attention.

Perhaps it was just a bad day? Maybe things will improve in the afternoon?

Then I got an email. It looked like this:
