Doing Things the Joomla! Way

Joomla logoWe've now been working with Joomla! for over ten years--since its inception in August 2005. In that 10 years, we have worked with hundreds of web sites and learned a thing or two. One of the tremendous advantages of Joomla! is the vast array of third-party extensions - components, modules and plugins - available to add almost any functionality you can think of to your web site. On occasion, a client requires functionality that cannot be provided by an existing Joomla! extension, so what do you do when Joomla! or one of those extensions doesn't do everything you need?

Joomla! 2.5 No Longer Supported...Really?

Yes, it is true that as of January 1, 2015, Joomla! 2.5 is no longer officially supported by the Joomla Foundation (joomla.org). This doesn't mean that Joomla 2.5 sites will suddenly stop working, but it does mean that no additional patches will be developed for it and that extensions will gradually become unavailable for this version. Do Patches Matter? On December 10, 2014, the last patch for Joomla 2.5, bringing it to 2.5.28, was announced. You can read the full announcement here: Joomla 2.5.28 Released.

This situation put me on the track of considering the really critical factors about a site redesign as they have pertained to us... TECHNOLOGY Our redesign originated because of the need for a technology refresh, which is why I list it first. Our previous site was Joomla 2.5, and Joomla 3 has now been out for 1.5 years. Plus, we have been delivering Joomla 3 upgrades and new sites to our clients and...

Update for Joomla 3

On Tuesday, January 24, 2012, the Joomla development team released Joomla 2.5.0. This was the release we were waiting for...or so we thought. It has a much more flexible category structure, better out-of-the-box search engine optimization, definable user groups and permissions, easier software upgrades, better administrator interface, and a lot more. We have converted our own 3by400.com site to Joomla 2.5. Joomla 2.5 was the first step in the Joomla team's strategy of a well-planned development roadmap. Joomla 2.5 was a Long Term Support (LTS) release, which will be maintained and supported until the end of 2013. In mid-2013 the next...
