JPG Flash Rotator Module for Joomla

Did you know that Flash is actually not valid XHTML?

Luckily, there is a work around and we've updated the Flash JPG Rotator Module to implemement just that. The Flash Rotator Module now uses FlashObject to validate. Also added, is the wmode=transparent option so now you can sylize your module with a class-suffix and add background images.

Back in December we asked the Joomlashack community to nominate their favorite charity for our contest. In eight days you sent us over 110 nominations from worthy organizations from around the world. After a fascinating, fun, and difficult evaluation process, Team Joomlashack picked these five charities as our finalists.

And the runaway winner of the contest were the children of Casa do Caminho Orphanage, with almost 50% of the vote.

Greetings and Happy New Year to all!

This purpose of this letter is just to fill you in on some changes to come in 2006 and to recap our first year with the Joomla! community.

A lot of us have a new sense of freshness, especially since the Joomla/Mambo rebranding and Id like to personally thank the entire community for such a great success on the behalf of JoomlaShack. There are so many success stories I can't even begin to list them individually. Because of you, in just the past 3 months we were able to move our data do a dedicated server, create 8 free templates for the community, 20 variations of commercial templates and assorted modules as well as helping to launch over 60 Joomla powered sites, assist in the development of 3 community sites and donate over $1,000.00 in donations to victims of hurricane Katrina. Again, thank you! This would have never been possible without such a dedicated community and excellent camaraderie among other Joomla! developers..
