Earlier this year Jisse asked if I was prepared to review the book he was writing on Joomla plugins. Proof reading is something that strangely I enjoy doing even if it is quite a slow and tedious task.However I did warn Jisse that I wouldn't be able to review anything other than the language as "I am not a developer". I have always known that plugins are one of the most powerful features of Joomla but as "I am not a developer" I have always had to rely on plugins published on the JED...

Every conference I attend I am amazed at how bad many of the slide decks are. It's not as if people are rushing them or creating them at the last minute. They have been created with a lot of time and care they just suck. I have a few rules when I create a slide deck. If you follow them then you won't upset me, you will ensure your audience remembers the key points and you will save yourself time.

This is another post (and my first) to directly look at the proposal by the Structure Working group for Joomla. They have proposed an almost completely flat structure and you can read more about it elsewhere. A flat structure can sound great and incredibly democratic but it is a fine line between democracy and anarchy. So I have a question, well actually I have two questions about the proposals made for a completely flat structure for Joomla as made by the Structure Working Group. After...

If you are anything like me then you are regularly taking screenshots to share online. There are many different ways to do this but they all have their limitations. I don't like limits and I do like speed and to be in control of my own data. In my last post I explained that I have purchased a funky domain name http://tee.mn and set it up with YOURLS so that I can create and manage my own short url service. My next task was to find a way to use this domain to quickly and easily share my...

I like short urls (shurls). I like being able to create memorable links to anything on the internet. I like being able to see statistics on who else has followed the link. There are many online services that offer this but when you are not in control of your own data you can get burned and I got burned badly when a short url service stopped working a while back and I lost all those saved urls. So I stopped creating shurls and I missed it. During the xmas holidays last year I was reviewing a...

3.7/5 (11 votes)

I like fonts. I like to use different fonts. I have downloaded lots of fonts for different projects. Each time I start a new project I waste lots of time looking for the "perfect" font. The problem is that I have forgotten what all of the fonts I already have look like so finding the right font is a slow and frustrating process. On my Mac I have fontbook which catalogs all my fonts and lets me quickly see the alphabet in that font but that is just not good enough. There are two things it...

On Friday night in Cancun, Mexico at the third Joomla World Conference I presented an Ignite session. Ignite is a presentation format where you have 20 slides and only 15 seconds before each slide changes. What I actually said on the night you will have to wait for the video but this is what I intended to write. This is my family - they are all lawyers and the one in the middle is a judge. 9 and half years ago lawyers like them gave me some advice - Keep quiet - don’t say anything until you...

Automatic updates for Joomla! are a bad idea.

2.8/5 (16 votes)

There is a growing trend for software to automatically update without any notification, authorisation or backup. This sucks!!! Let me tell you why. A Joomla! website typically consists of the core application and many extensions, which include modules, plug-ins, components and templates. It is not possible for the developer of each of those elements to test their changes with all possible combinations of extensions. When any one of those extensions, or the core of Joomla itself, are upgraded...
