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

Major Improvements in ShackSlides Pro

Major Improvement in ShackSlides Pro

One of our goals at Joomlashack is to make things simple for you.

With that in mind, we merged Joomlashack's Visionary component into ShackSlides. Visionary was an extension that was sold separately that integrated with Shackslides and allowed you to easily upload images. The goal is help make it simpler for you to work with slideshows.

With the same low price, Shackslides now includes the features that made Visionary so popular.

If you install or update ShackSlides to its latest version 3.1.4, you will notice a significant change in your Joomla control panel.

You Can Update Joomlashack Templates From the Admin Area

Our Joomla Templates Now Support Easy Updates

If you use a Joomlashack template, please consider updating to the latest release.

Why do we ask this?

The latest versions of Joomlashack templates now use the Joomla update system.

This means that you can update templates with one-click from your admin area. This also means you can easily get the latest bug-fixes, security updates and new features.
