Part of this change is the introduction of new awesome products for Joomla (the first one launches in June 2015) including new templates, the expansion to WordPress plugins (October 2015), the introduction of a new premium performance-oriented managed hosting service for both Joomla & WordPress websites*, and the long awaited unveiling of K2 version 3.0 - our flagship product.
We are happy to announce that K2 version 3.0 will be officially presented in the upcoming JoomlaDay Brasil 2015 event, held 4-6 September, 2015 in Brasilia (the retro futuristic city built in the 50s by the visionary architect Oscar Niemeyer).
As you may have noticed the past few weeks, we have unpublished the product pages for K2mart and SuperBlogger. As it occurs with every other product or technology, there is a time when we have to say goodbye, either because a new better product or technology fulfills our needs or simply because it's not required anymore.
A common pitfall you might have run into is publishing or hiding modules in views that do not use a specific menu item. In this blog post we are shedding some light into K2 search results and how to extend their functionality. We will assign a menu item to the K2 search results so we can have even more control over our modules.
The Joomla team has decided to ditch the Ubuntu style release cycle (a truly WTF decision in the first place) and once and for all end confusion to developers, users, customers and clients from hell.
This means that the current release (3.x) is the current stable release. There is NO need to use Joomla 2.5 anymore. It won't be more stable compared to Joomla 3.x. And when 4.x is released, that will be the new stable release and so on.
An exception will be made for Joomla 2.5 and it will be supported until the end of 2014. Joomla development will then shift entirely to Joomla 3.x.
K2 is the most popular content management extension for Joomla. Together they provide a friendly and powerful interface that works great for both experts and beginners who want to customise their website with minimum effort.
In this post we'll take a deeper look in the flexibility provided by K2 when it comes to customisation, either through its multiple sub-template capabilities or through the inheritance options provided in its parameters.
Typography on the web has grown leaps and bounds in the past few years. Gone are the days when you had to choose between a handful of system fonts with sometimes embarrassing results (Yes I’m looking at you Comic Sans) or you had to jump through various hoops to use a non-system font on your website. Thankfully the resources and tools available right now make it easier and safer to make changes to an existing website design or template as long as we bear in mind some common best practices and take advantages of the tools at our disposal. Let’s dive in and examine some of these.
