Joomla! 3.4.1 Released | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
The 3.4 release introduces new features into the CMS such as improved front end module editing, decoupling of weblinks, composer integration, Google new reCaptcha and security improvements by implementing UploadShield code which can detect most malicious uploads by examining their filenames and file contents.

I can understand the need for businesses to make a profit but when you take a prebuilt product, change the name and then offer a pro version with no extra features, what's that about?

Front End Module Editing in Joomla 3.4

Front End Module Editing in Joomla 3.4 | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
In all the years that I have used Joomla I have never really seen the need for front end editing. Why bother? I could just do everything in the admin.


There were always too many things that I couldn't do on the front end that meant I was forever switching between the two.

Gantry5: Built from the Ground Up for Speed

Gantry5: Built from the Ground Up for Speed | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it

Gantry5 is without a doubt RocketTheme's most ambitious project to date. It is set to not only be the most flexible and powerful version of the Gantry Framework yet, but also the fastest.

 

Gantry5 is more than just an update to our popular and powerful templating framework for WordPress and Joomla, it is a complete rewrite that takes full advantage of the latest Web technologies.

 

Unlike previous versions, Gantry5 is not backwards compatible. It is, in essence, a completely new product that redefines what a framework can be, breaking free of the notion that you have to have a ton of programming experience to make a great website.

JCE 2.4.6 released

This is a maintenace release to fix some issues reported since the release of 2.4.6, as well as a possible minor vulnerability in the JCE Add-ons Installer.

Possible Vulnerability in JCE Add-ons Installer

We have been informed of a possible vulnerability that may exist in the JCE Add-ons installer, that may give someone with access to the Joomla Administration and the JCE Installer the ability to upload a file to the Joomla tmp folder that is not a JCE Add-on. This update fixes this issue.

In addition to the above fix, you should always ensure that access to the Joomla Administration of your site, and the JCE Installer, is only ever given to trusted individuals.

Joomla Moodle Integration Guide - Super Moodle

Joomla Moodle Integration Guide - Super Moodle | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it

Syncing the content of different management tools and features is one of the efficiencies that technology advancements bring and the Joomla Moodle integration is a perfect example. There are various ways in which integration can be achieved, although the most common involves a third party feature. Integration basically deals with creating an interface shared by both applications. This interface enables data sharing and automatic updating of contents in one application using another. While integration yields many benefits in terms of automation and simplified content management, not all software will achieve the perfect form of integration required to yield claimed benefits. It is therefore important to learn a few things and keenly evaluate each integration option before using them.

Fabrik The Joomla Application builder - version 3.3 released

Fabrik The Joomla Application builder - version 3.3 released | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
We have fixed a bug which could lead to a SQL injection attack. An update is strongly recommended

We ironed out a couple of issues that were blocking the use of Fabrik with Joomla 3.4

Most select lists (CDD) can now be rendered using Chosen

Improved index handling, this should increase page load times for list which use joins, or which have multi-select database join elements. The indexes are created on new or on save.

We've been seeing more issues with the fact we use Require.js to asynchronously load our Javascript, specifically with certain jQuery plugins such as widgetkit. These issues should be resolved now as we ensure that require.js is loaded last.

Revealing Joomla’s SEO Secrets - Redirect Manager (com_redirect)

Revealing Joomla’s SEO Secrets - Redirect Manager (com_redirect) | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it

One of the hidden gems which appeared with the 1.6 version of Joomla is the Redirect Manager - a simple system which allows you to identify and fix broken links. Before the Redirect Manager was introduced, the only way to find and fix broken URLs was to use a third party extension, an SEO scraper such as Screaming Frog, or looking in your server logs. Now it's possible to identify and manage broken links within the administrator panel of your Joomla website.

JoomlaCode is closing

We recently received an email from google webmaster tools with the subject line: Hacking suspected: http://joomlacode.org/


Unfortunately, it appears that joomlacode.org is infected with content spam. When we realized this, our only concern is to protect our users. This will involve taking down the service in the very near future. This is an inconvenience for project owners using JoomlaCode to host projects for, and we are truly sorry.

 

JoomlaCode.org is a resource for developers to build and manage Open Source software projects centred around Joomla. The Software that powers JoomlaCode allows project owners to manage code, documentation, and provide downloads to community members.
