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.
This week we released new versions of several Alledia extensions.
The major new feature we added was integration between OSDownloads and MailChimp groups. This allows you to send a targeted series of emails after someone has downloaded a particular file.
Today, Joomla loves Google!
We've launched a new version of OSEmbed Pro that allows you to embed anything from Google using just a URL.
You can easily embed Google Maps, Docs, Slides, Forms, Sheets and Drawings in Joomla.
This week we released a new round of updates for some of our extensions, focusing on bug fixes. Here are more details:
At the end of January, we've published several new extension updates. Here's an overview:
Have you been in the following situation?
- You're watching a really great YouTube video and want to add it to your site.
- You take the embed code and paste it into your Joomla site. That doesn't work.
- You disable your WYSIWYG editor and add the embed code. You turn the editor back on and everything breaks.
You need OSEmbed, our new extension.
OSEmbed is the easiest way to embed anything in Joomla. OSEmbed will make Joomla far easier for you and your customers.
We had an independent security person test our site last week and he found a security issue in Simple Renew.
Our developer fixed the issue and we've released a new version of Simple Renew. Please download the latest version of Simple Renew and upgrade to it at your earliest opportunity. Alternatively, you can upgrade from Joomla's update manager.
Please read the below info:
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!
We're getting a secret, new Joomla extension ready for release in the next few weeks.
