New Feature: OSDownloads Pro Now Has Custom Fields For User Information

New Feature: OSDownloads Pro Has Custom Forms

Over the last couple of months we've been working really hard on improvements to OSDownloads.

OSDownloads is the easiest way to add downloads to Joomla.

What are the new features in OSDownloads?

We've added email notifications for downloads, improved the URL structure, and enabled custom fields for download files. Starting today, you can also use custom fields for user submissions, so you can collect more information from visitors who download files.

Joomlashack's 2017 Review and 2018 Preview

js 2017 review

Happy New Year, everyone.

Our team took over Joomlashack 18 months ago.

Ever since the takeover, people have been asking me questions like these:

  • "Is it worth building a Joomla business?"
  • "Do people still use Joomla?"
  • "Is anyone creating cool things for Joomla users?"

My answers are always an emphatic "Yes".

In this review, I'll explain why we're really confident for Joomla and Joomlashack in 2018.

Let's first see what happened in 2017, and then we'll see the plans for 2018.

The New Joomla 4 Administrator Template

The New Joomla 4 Administrator Template

Back in August, we took a first look at Joomla 4.

This was part of a series of posts on Joomla that have also covered the new Media Manager  and the new installer.

Overall, I was really impressed with Joomla 4 ... except for the administrator template. The admin screens were not well-designed.

Well, I now have much better news! The first alpha version of Joomla 4 has just arrived, and the Joomla team are making great progress on the admin area.

Elisa Foltyn has a post in the Joomla Magazine with screenshots from the new admin.
