Celebrate your independence and freedom of speech with Joomla's best blogging components!

Here in the U.S. where Joomlashack is based, today is the Fourth of July, the day Americans celebrate our nation's independence. While many remember the American Revolution as a war, the real struggle was one of ideas and words, not bullets and bayonets.

Back in May we sponsored our first-ever Joomla User Survey and received an incredible reponse. Whether it was the opportunity to participate in a study of Joomla users or the chance to win our awesome prizes (or to get 30% off any Joomlashack order), we'll never know.

We do know that more than 3,500 unique respondents answered the survey and were entered to win. If you haven't checked out the results from the survey yet, you might find them very interesting. How do you compare to other Joomla users? Find out.

So, now that Joomlashack has finally finished the migration of our entire site over to several new systems, with a whole graphic redesign of our own site thrown in for good measure, we can take a deep breath and finally draw the winners of our survey. Drumroll please!

The goal here is to get a full-width page with no left or right modules showing.

First, you will need to create a menu item linking to the page to be displayed. This can be anything you want such as a gallery, wrapper, forum etc.

Next, go to the Module Manager (Modules > Site Modules).
The filter drop down is your best friend within the Module Manager. To the right you will see a "select position" drop down list.
Select the LEFT position.

A list of all modules available in the LEFT position are now displayed. Obviously the only ones of importance are the ones that are published. Starting at the top, click on a (published) module title link.

When the page loads you will see several parameters. Look to the ones at the right of the page labeled "Pages/Items". These are the menu items (or pages) which the module is to be present in its respected position, in this case LEFT. Use your control or  cmd (mac) or cntrl (pc) key to select or deselect multiple items. You can also use the shift key to select multiple items in a row. The menu item you created to be full width should NOT be selected because you don't want this or any other module in the left column.

Make your way down the list in your Module Manager through all the LEFT positioned modules with the above method and do the same for the RIGHT position.

Who is using Joomla? Does our survey tell us?

In April and May of 2007, Joomlashack conducted the first ever major survey of Joomla Users. Over 3,600 people filled out 31 questions ranging from how many Joomla sites they managed to what Joomla tasks they do most often.

The Joomla survey results confirmed many things about this powerful open source CMS, and also had a few surprises. Here are the results with some Joomlashack editorial observations!
