The Good, the Great, and the Truly Awesome Joomla Design Trends for 2017

The Good, the Great, and the Truly Awesome Joomla Design Trends for 2017

Much of what we see in changing design trends really has to do with the consumer. So, if you become aware of changes happening with your audience’s preferences, behaviors, or even technology usage, that’s usually a clear indication that something is about to change within your own work.

As far as 2017 goes, there is a major sea change happening with consumers across all industries. No longer is it enough to create a high-quality offering and accompanying website to show off that product or service. Now everything needs to be geared towards improving the user experience. Why? Because that is the direction everything is headed.

We Are Willing to Adopt Joomla Extensions

We Are Willing to Adopt Joomla Extensions

Over the last few days, we've been contacted by several Joomla users. These users were customers of a particular Joomla extension developer. The developer seems to have vanished overnight, shutting down their website. 

This is not the first time we've seen a situation like this. Life happens. People get busy, create new extensions and services, change jobs, or may need to stop development for 1,001 other reasons.

But, if you don't want to disappoint your existing customers, let me offer an option: Joomlashack is willing to adopt your extensions.

Important: Please Check Your Joomlashack Extension Versions

Important: Please Check Your Joomlashack Extension Versions

Joomla has recently announced a new rule for extensions published on the Joomla Extensions Directory (JED).

Extensions on the JED must now support the Joomla Update System. This means that you can easily apply updates via your site's administrator area.

We're 110% behind this new rule. It will make your Joomla site safer and easier to maintain. The JED team wrote a great explanation of the benefits to website builders and extension developers.

Some of our extensions, especially the original extensions from Joomlashack, were still missing that feature. We've have been working hard over the last few weeks to make sure all Joomlashack extensions support the Joomla Update System.
