10 Tips for a Fast Joomla Website

10 Tips for a Fast Joomla Website | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
Is your Joomla website slow? You should definitely work on that: users hate slow websites, and they may leave your site earlier then they otherwise would, resulting in low conversion. Any site that needs more then 2 seconds to load could be at risk.

Outdated Versions of Joomla 2.5.x and 3.x Widely Used

Outdated Versions of Joomla 2.5.x and 3.x Widely Used | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it

Last month we spotlighted at the fact that 31 percent of Joomla websites checked with ourJoomla Version Check tool during January were still running Joomla 1.5, for which supported ended September 2012. This month we decided to take a look at if websites that were running a supported Joomla series, either 2.5.x or 3.x, were being kept up to date based on last month’s data from the tool. Unlike websites still running Joomla 1.5 that need a more complicatedmigration to be brought up to a supported version, the upgrade process for websites running 2.5.x or 3.x is relatively simple. Keeping software running on a website up to date is a basic security measure, so if websites are not being kept up to date when it is relatively easy it shows that website security is in bad shape.

HWDMediaShare 1.1.13 Released

HWDMediaShare 1.1.13 Released | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
We are excited to announce that HWDMediaShare 1.1.13 was released yesterday. This will be one of the final maintenance releases of the Joomla 2.5 branch (a new branch for Joomla 3 will be released shortly). As usual this release includes some minor bug fixes to the HWDMediaShare component, including improvements to the HWD javascript framework and CSS style sheets. Additionally, we've included some Joomla 3 compatibility fixes, especially relating to the automatic conversions. We've changed the remote plugin framework to improve coverage for imports from media websites which use different subdomains in different geographic locations. For example, uk.extreme.com and us.extreme.com will all now work under a single remote plugin. The Strapped template overrides have also been updated for compatibility with the latest gallery component.
