Joomlashack and Joomla Birthday SaleWOW, time flies! It's hard to believe, but almost five years ago, on Sept 1st 2005, Joomla was officially launched. Just a day later, on Sept 2nd, Joomlashack was founded.

Like Joomla, we've gone through some big changes since then, especially the past year or so--a new team, new Premium Joomla Templates, launching Joomlashack University, releasing new Joomla Extensions and now our own Wordpress Themes & Drupal Themes, too!

Big changes, indeed--but one thing that will never change at the 'Shack is our commitment to bringing you the very BEST Joomla (and other CMS) products at the very BEST value anywhere.

We want to thank you all for making Joomlashack so successful these past 5 years. Here's to another 5!

Wordpress for JoomlaWe recently released a very informative, in-depth training lesson in our Joomlashack University on how to set up and use the Wordpress for Joomla! extension by corePHP. Wordpress for Joomla! is a powerful new Joomla extension that allows you to use Wordpress blogging software inside your Joomla website. With Wordpress for Joomla, you can enjoy the best blogging platform integrated with the best content management system available. You can even use Wordpress plugins and Joomla modules all at the same time, on the same blog. It's amazing.

In this new Quickshot preview of Wordpress for Joomla, JSU instructor Forest Linden gives you a very brief overview of just a few of the many cool features that Wordpress for Joomla! has to offer.
