If you find yourself manually sharing on Facebook each article that you've created, this tutorial is for you.

A few weeks ago, we wrote about 6 possible new features in Joomla 3.7.
Well, one feature is likely to appear in Joomla 3.7. That feature is improved URLs. Joomla will allow you to remove the numbers from URLs.
[UPDATE] This feature has now been moved to Joomla 3.8
In this post, I'll show you how to test this upcoming feature. This guide is for testing purposes only. Please don’t use this for production sites yet!
This week, a Joomlashack University member asked us about simplifying the Joomla signup process.
Yes, in Joomla 3.7 you will be able to add fields. However, this member wanted to remove fields, without touching Joomla core files.
He wanted to remove the Name field and keep just three fields: "Username", "Password" and "Email address".
We will do this with a neat technique thanks to Lodder from JoomJunk.co.uk.

Joomla development has been the most requested topic by Joomlashack University members.
So, I'm delighted to release another in a series of several Joomla development classes. We've worked with Cory Webb, a Joomla developer since 2005, to produce a series of classes on building extensions.
This new class is called "How to Develop Joomla Components. Part 1: the Administrator".
This class follows on from "How to Develop Joomla Modules" and "How to Develop Joomla Plugins".

Joomla is one of the most content friendly content management systems (CMS) in the market today. It is free to use and offers extensive options for building and maintaining a content-rich website. Anyone without programming skills and knowledge of content management systems can successfully run a feature-rich website.
Joomla follows the best industry practices for content management systems. Hence, it is an ideal platform for all sorts of websites, web apps, and especially e-commerce stores. Getting started with Joomla is fast and easy, provided you have the right platform to power the Joomla installation. Once you have installed Joomla on a reliable platform, you have access to a host of tools for building your ideal website.
For the last year, Joomlashack clubs were sold only as 6 or 12 month plans, and they were a wonderful value for the money.
For example, you could get our Extension Club for as little as $129 for a 6 month plan. You could also get all our templates for $79 on a 6 month subscription.
Today, we're introducing a more affordable 3 month options for all Joomlashack clubs.
