Have you ever had a Joomla website hacked? Do you manage a whole bunch of websites and find it hard to manage security and backups on all of these websites?
Well, Watchful.li from the team at Anything Digital and inetis have put together a fantastic service where you can manage multiple website upgrades, backups and monitor websites for security issues all in one dashboard console.
At PB Web Development, we manage hundreds of Joomla websites and when we're busy working on delivering great new projects for our clients it is sometimes hard to keep on top of all the other websites that we look after.
You can also listen to a podcast review we did of the system at our podcast: http://joomlabe.at/podcast/6-ep2-joomla-backups-security-updates-and-watchful-li
In October 2012 here in Sydney we've recently had our major event for all of us Sydney Joomla enthusiasts. Around 100 members of the Sydney Joomla community gathered together to celebrate everything and anything to do with the Joomla content management system.
The Joomla User Group Sydney pull together a few fantastic speakers from around the world in a live video stream as well as other presenters from around the country.
Choosing a domain name for my own website was not what I expected to be doing this morning, and I was pleasantly surprised that today we'd be creating our own websites. Within minutes of choosing a name, it had been registered with JoomHosting. More time consuming was choosing a pre-designed template from JoomlArt, that could be modified to suit the look and feel I wanted for my site.
Joomla, the word is thrown around here a lot. At first I was confused, what does it mean? What is it? I learnt that it is a content management system which enables users to create a website from scratch. After learning about how to create content on the platform, today I made my own website. I went from intern to master web developer in one day. Well, not really, but now I have my own website and I am on track to learning the ins and outs of using an open source content management system.
We use quite a few hosting providers here in Sydney for various different clients depending on their website requirements and their support needs.
Each of the Joomla hosting providers that we use have different levels of service for their customers and we make sure that our clients' needs are matched up with the services and support from the hosting company that they require.
We noticed the other day that a few new Joomla users that were playing around with the later series of Joomla 2.5.0-2.5.7 (onwards) were having issues with the timestamp and timezones that were set up in their websites.
This is a pretty common problem if you don't have the right setup on your server so lets look a little deeper into what is going on.
Recently we've come across a little issue in Joomla that users were having where the articles in a category would be displaying in the wrong order or wrong sequence when clicking or navigating through them with the previous and next pagination links at the bottom of an article or an item.
This isn't quite an issue with Joomla itself but more so the understanding of how Joomla works and how menu links and content is organised in a Joomla powered website.
2012 has been a big year of JoomlaDays. With 29 JoomlaDays in 2012 around the world we're seeing more and more support for the Joomla project around the world. PB Web Development this year were lucky enough so sponsor three JoomlaDays around the world, JoomlaDay New England, JoomlaDay South Africa and JoomlaDay Sydney but as our training arm, JoomTraining.
We were pretty proud to have sponsored all of these JoomlaDays around the world and help communities on a global scale.
