A New Version of Joomla 3 Explained is Coming

A New Version of Joomla 3 Explained is Coming

The team behind Joomlashack wrote the most popular Joomla books.

  • Joomla Explained was published in 2011 and focused on Joomla 2.5.
  • Joomla 3 Explained was published in 2013 and focused on Joomla 3.

These books sold well over 10,000 copies each. However, we haven't been able to release an update in recent years. Finally, that's going to change.

Why release a Joomla 3 Explained update?

There are several good reasons to release a new version now:

  • Joomla 3.7 will bring major changes with fields, multi-lingual changes.
  • After 4 years, the book badly needs an update. The book is actually being used in classrooms around the world. I'm embarrassed to even think about what the students must think.
  • The Joomla certification project is underway, and there needs to be affordable, high-quality study materials.

Civic 2, a New Version of Our Minimalist Video Joomla Template

We released a new version of Civic, a Joomla template that's perfect for several types of websites, especially those that rely on video.

Many video displays are hard-to-configure, so we focused on making Civic as simple as possible. Especially for Civic, we added a new "mute" feature in the OSYouTube plugin. This makes it easy to have a beautiful, and silent, video on your homepage.

Additionally, Civic is now compatible with the very last version of the Wright framework.

How to Simplify the Joomla Registration Form

How to Simplify Default Registration Form in Joomla 3

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.
