Joomlashack is now part of OSTraining

As you may know, Joomlashack University became powered by OSTraining in 2013. Since then, Eddie (the CEO of Joomlashack) and I have continued to collaborate on a number of ventures and companies.

Eddie, who has become an integral part of the OSTraining team, asked me to help him with Joomlashack. He wanted Joomlashack to move forward more quickly and with more resources.

Enter the OSTraining team of developers, designers, and support staff …

We have taken over Joomlashack’s template and extension development projects. We'll strive to increase product launches, as we bring the company's technological excellence on par with the high standards we have at OSTraining and Alledia.

Joomla! just released their last beta release 3.5.1. We will need to wait a little longer for the stable version.

For those of you keeping your sites up to date, this new release will be a common procedure. However, if you have not been updating your Joomla site, findings reveal the need to upgrade/migrate to the latest stable version. Doing this will eliminate risks from vulnerabilities possibly found in old versions.

Please, don't become part of the statistics.

Why migrate your site?

We cannot explain this better than the good folks from Joomla.org. Read their reasons HERE. In short: you NEED to upgrade your site!

What is the status of Joomla 2.5?

Joomla! Version 2.5 is no longer supported since December 31st, 2014. End of support means that the Joomla! Project will no longer provide bug fixes, features, or security updates.

If you have a site built with Joomla 2.5, you need to do 2 things:

  1. Make sure you have the latest update of Joomla (2.5.28). This will buy you a few months of peace-of-mind.
  2. You need to start planning the migration of your site to Joomla 3.x.

Social media is a pervasive part of today’s culture, whether you’re looking at it from a user standpoint or a marketing standpoint. The social web has the largest amount of traffic, endless user engagement and is the place to be to maintain any sort of web presence. Sharing buttons and integrated features are a commonly touted tool for Joomla templates, but with new social medias popping up practically every day, it’s important to figure out a good sharing balance, where to position your sharing buttons, and how many buttons are too many.

Which Sites to Share?

The first order of business is figuring out which social media sites are most appropriate for your website. You want to go with the high-traffic social media sites to start, such as Facebook, Google+, Reddit and Pinterest. Expanding further depends on your audience and your niche. Niche social media sites give you targeted traffic of those who are more likely to be interested in the topics you’re talking about, at the expense of having lower traffic volume. Take a look at where your target demographic likes to spend their time before deciding on other social media sites.

Invest your time better when desiging a site

You already know that Joomla is a versatile platform with a theming system that provides great features and flexibility. As a Web developer working on your own projects or a client site, you also already know that it’s a great idea and the best use of your time to invest in purchasing a professional template to build upon. When you do this, you don’t have to focus on laying out the groundwork for your web-design project, because the template will take care of that. Instead, you can spend your time on the small details, the customization, the incorporated features, and the site design.

The Joomla theme market is huge, so it’s important to go into the process with a list of features, requirements, and theme characteristics that will work best for your needs, skill level, and the particular project.
