jcal pro big Last week, we announced that over a dozen extra extensions were coming to Joomlashack, thanks to a merger with Alledia.com.

So, if you're a member of our Extensions Club, you will suddenly get 400% more value. Instead of 5 extensions, you'll have access to about 20.

Alledia's extensions include some of the most popular extensions in Joomla, such as OSMap, OSYouTube, Tabs and Sliders and more.

Today, we're can add one more to that list: JCal Pro. 

JCal Pro is one of the most popular calendar and events components in Joomla. Initially, JCal Pro will move to Alledia. But, it will then move to Joomlashack during the merger.

We intend to make Joomlashack a one-stop destination for all your Joomla needs. We hope you'll agree that this another big step in that direction!

We're continuing updating our templates.

Today, we bring you a big update for the Breezy template, previously known as Breeze.

The new Breezy has a big design refresh in addition to the awesome features from Wright 3.

What to Know About Updating to Joomla 3.6.2

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.

We're Going to Merge Alledia into Joomlashack

We have some very positive news for Joomlashack users.

We're going to merge Alledia.com into Joomlashack.com. If you're a member of our Extensions Club, you will suddenly get 400% more value. Instead of 5 extensions, you'll have access to about 20.

Sometime in the next few weeks, Alledia.com will redirect to Joomlashack.com, and over a dozen extra extensions will appear on Joomlashack. These include some of the most popular extensions in Joomla, such as OSMap, OSYouTube, Tabs and Sliders and more.

We're continuing to modernize our catalog of templates.

Today, we bring you a big update for the Onyx template.

Version 3 of Onyx has had a complete design refresh. The template also now uses the latest version of the Wright Framework.

Joomlashack logo Since taking over Joomlashack in April, we've hard at work revamping everything.

We launched Clementine, a new template, plus major updates for Onyx, Vintage and Techie. We're also planning new versions of Breeze, Community, Optimus and Travertine. Once that's done, all our templates will be running on the Wright 3 framework.

Joomlashack logoJoomla 3.6 is now available and you can update your sites.

When Joomla 3.6 was originally announced, it was meant to be a transitional release.

The Joomla team originally planned for this update to be called 3.5.2, with only a few minor fixes.

However, several new features were added. So, following Joomla’s versioning policy, the correct version number became Joomla 3.6.

This isn't a blockbuster release, unlike Joomla 3.7 which may have several major new features. However, there are some nice changes. Here's an overview of 10 useful improvements that you'll find in Joomla 3.6.

We're continuing to modernize our older templates.
 
Today, we bring you an update for the Techie template.
 
This new version has numerous design improvements, including changes to make the text easier to read. The template also now uses the latest version of the Wright Framework.

Two weeks ago, we launched Clementine a beautiful new template.
 
Today, we bring you an update on the beloved Vintage Template.
 
The original Vintage template was launched in 2007 and became an instant bestseller. We believe that web design clients loved it's classic aesthetic.

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.
