Joomlashack Clubs Now Have More Affordable Options

New Joomlashack Clubs are a Greater Value

For the last year, Joomlashack clubs were sold only as 6 or 12 month plans, and they were a wonderful value for the money.

For example, you could get our Extension Club for as little as $129 for a 6 month plan. You could also get all our templates for $79 on a 6 month subscription.

Today, we're introducing a more affordable 3 month options for all Joomlashack clubs.

The Good, the Great, and the Truly Awesome Joomla Design Trends for 2017

The Good, the Great, and the Truly Awesome Joomla Design Trends for 2017

Much of what we see in changing design trends really has to do with the consumer. So, if you become aware of changes happening with your audience’s preferences, behaviors, or even technology usage, that’s usually a clear indication that something is about to change within your own work.

As far as 2017 goes, there is a major sea change happening with consumers across all industries. No longer is it enough to create a high-quality offering and accompanying website to show off that product or service. Now everything needs to be geared towards improving the user experience. Why? Because that is the direction everything is headed.

We Are Willing to Adopt Joomla Extensions

We Are Willing to Adopt Joomla Extensions

Over the last few days, we've been contacted by several Joomla users. These users were customers of a particular Joomla extension developer. The developer seems to have vanished overnight, shutting down their website. 

This is not the first time we've seen a situation like this. Life happens. People get busy, create new extensions and services, change jobs, or may need to stop development for 1,001 other reasons.

But, if you don't want to disappoint your existing customers, let me offer an option: Joomlashack is willing to adopt your extensions.
