Here at Joomlashack we work very hard to provide our customers with the best products and service in the industry, however we are never satisfied, so in our efforts to continually improve ourselves we want to share with you some of the major changes we are making
On May 6-8th Eddie, Jeremy and Myself, members of the Joomlashack team, had the pleasure of attending this years J and Beyond, an international Joomla Conference. The event was great. It was a weekend filled with the sharing of information and ideas through presentations, conversations, networking, and friendship building.
Simplepraise is a simple, yet elegant template that's easy on the eyes and even easier to customize. It's clean design (with generous white space) will allow your visitors to easily scan and quickly retrieve the information they are looking for when they visit your site. And it's simply perfect for any website--especially news sites, blogs or communities. No bloat. No clutter. Just clean, simple web 2.0 design

Until now, if you needed a reliable and feature-rich Joomla-based e-commerce solution, there were precious few choices out there.
So when our friends at ‘corePHP’ approached us last year about partnering with them in the development of a new Joomla shopping cart/ e-commerce solution, we were thrilled.
To us it just seems like the next step in a natural evolution. Since 2005, with our cool Joomla Templates and Extensions, we have helped hundreds of thousands create Joomla-powered Websites. Then in 2009, we launched the School of Joomla at Joomlashack University to teach you how to build better Joomla-powered websites.
Today we are excited to announce the SEO College (search engine optimization) and Conversion Optimization.
Its the next logical step because we first helped you create websites. Then we taught you how to build better sites. Today we want to provide you and your clients with the necessary tools to make your websites more successful.
As I mentioned in my last blog post, Joomlashack pledged to donate 50% of Tuesday's sales to help the victims of last week's devastating earthquake & tsunami in Japan.
I'm proud to announce that thanks to our loyal customers, Joomlashack was able to make a very generous donation to the American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity on Friday.
Thanks are also in order to PayPal and Missionfish-- a wonderful service which allowed us to wire 100% of our donation through PayPal to both charities quickly and easily and with no fees!
Again, on behalf of everyone here at the 'Shack, thank you so much for helping us help the good people of Japan during this very difficult time.
Here's a 12 minute sample of one of our latest video tutorials at Joomlashack University called "Automating daily site backups with Akeeba Backup Pro."
Akeeba Backup is one of the most popular and most helpful extensions for Joomla that there is.
With Akeeba Backup Pro, the paid version, you can make it even more useful by setting it up to automatically make daily backups of your site and have those backup files sent to a server of your choice, such as an Amazon S3 or Rackspace Cloudfiles account.
In this video lesson, you'll see how to set up a Cloudfile account and how to configure Akeeba Backup Pro to automatically send it's daily backup files to the Cloudfile account.
One of the many cool things about working for an online company, like Joomlashack, is that you can log in and work from the comfort of your own home. We all get to see our families a bit more each day; can work in our PJs all day if we want; and never, ever have to worry about long commutes to work. It's a pretty sweet deal.
Our team is spread out all over the world, so working out of one central office would be a bit difficult at the moment. And that's why Skype has been such a godsend to us. It’s allowed our team to stay connected to each other despite us all being in multiple timezones.
