  • Getting services ready for Joomla 4 - BackupMonkey

    As a Joomla user, you may wonder whether the Joomla! extensions and services you use will be compatible with the upcoming major version, Joomla 4. What better way to find out than asking the developers?

  • Meet a Joomler - Nicky Veitch

    Nicky Veitch had a career in IT, and she came across Joomla when she was searching for a solution to sell digital products. Creating her first website was so much fun that she decided to make a career switch. Nicky is quite active in the Joomla Community, which she describes as ‘friendly and welcoming’.



  • My First Joomla 4 Website

    I don't build many websites. Most of my work is in training and advising people to build their own websites. So when I do need to build a new website I get the opportunity to put my ideas into practice.

    Over the last few months I have been working on producing https://www.learnjoomla4.com - a free video course to teach people how to build their first Joomla 4 website.



  • How I learned Joomla - Julie Steffers

    We all learn in different ways. Some of us learn by following written step-by-step instructions with or without screenshots, some by watching tutorial videos, some by asking others, and some by clicking around to see what happens. For Julie Steffers, it was a bit of ‘all of the above’. When she needed to create an intranet website, she started out by launching a website on launch.joomla.org, the platform that enables you to build fully functional Joomla websites and experience how Joomla works (for free!). And she learned a lot along the way.



  • Explore the Core! Organise your content with Articles and Categories

    No matter if it’s a travel blog, a recipes collection or a company page, all websites have something in common: they present some kind of content to the visitors. With Joomla, it is easy to create and organise your web content.



  • How to Avoid Joomla Security Mistakes

    Joomla is a popular open-source content management system. Joomla is used by 3.4% of all the websites with known content management systems, which makes up 2.1% of all websites worldwide.

    Similar to any open-source content management system, hacking attacks pose a threat to Joomla security. This is why it is important to take all possible measures to protect your Joomla site and improve its security.



  • Community Openings - Joomla! 4 Edition

    Psst!  Have you heard? Joomla! 4 is coming. Yeah, I know that you’ve heard that before, but it’s TRUE!  Earlier this month Joomla 4 Beta 7 was released and you know what that means?! It means that a Joomla 4 Release Candidate is dropping soon, and where there’s a release candidate, a new Joomla release is soon to follow. To get over the finish line, we need a hand, make that several hands to get things done. There’s a saying, something about many hands, making light work, or something like that. We could use MANY hands to write, test, bugfix, market, document, translate and more.
