Find Joomla! and Joomla! London related news here.  We show the latest security updates, Joomla! announcements, information about past and upcoming meetings, and anything else we think might be relevant.

This video tutorial shows you how to use the JCE profiles editor to create new profiles.  This is particularly helpful if you want to:

  • ​Lessen the learning curve for your users when using JCE as a Joomla! editor.
  • Retain control over your styling.
  • Increase the upload limit for certain users.
  • Set default settings such as the image align and margins.
  • Reduce the amount of items in the toolbar.
  • Make copying and pasting from websites work correctly.

We also show you how to import and export the profiles for reuse in future projects.​

When you're using sites around the web, most of the time we hardly give a thought as to how things actually work until you come accross a process that clearly doesn't work. For a long time Joomla's standard process of login/logout was a convoluted experience of page jumps and extra buttons with limited signposts along the way.  But that's all over now...

Yes it's that time of year again, it's usually punctuated by a slightly larger event, called GoogleIO, if you're interested in that, and you should be, there is some content overlap with JAB this year...AMP for one but IoT is also covered at JAB this year. JAB15 was always going to be a hard act to follow, the content was amazing, the surge in interest it created was also measurable. It was a significant event and set the bar.

Have you ever wished you could install all of your common Joomla! components on a site when you first set it up?  Installing them all one by one can take a little while, and that's not a productive use of your time.  Well I'm going to show you TWO ways to achieve your goal, depending on how you like to do things.
