To create a successful Joomla website, you need several different skills. Building a Joomla site will challenge you in various areas, and you will learn a lot along the way. Still, there are some areas in which you should acquire at least some basic knowledge and proficiency before starting. These are some of the skills you will need:

  1. Basic Joomla skills
  2. HTML skills
  3. CSS skills
  4. Patience
  5. Writing skills
  6. SEO skills

In this post, I'll go through these skills and elaborate on what it all means.

K2 is one of the most popular extensions for Joomla. The CCK (Content Construction Kit) has been a favorite for a lot of devs for years, me included. Since Joomla 3 was released, K2 has started to seem a bit outdated, though. That's soon to change, with the release of K2 version 3.x.

In this post, you will find a short demo video from JoomlaWorks, showing the responsiveness of the new User Interface. In the example, K2 v3.x is running on a remote (busy) dev server.

Online security, and in particular how to create strong passwords, has been discussed a lot lately. Many users create weak passwords in their systems, which is one factor in letting hackers in. As an added security measure, online service providers offer two-factor authentication.

What this means is that you have a username, a password and a one-time password that is generated by a gadget you control. This can be a dedicated gadget (like the ones many banks issue) or it can be an app on your smartphone (like Google Authenticator). These solutions normally give you a 6-digit one-time code that you can enter into the system.

There are also USB solutions that let you put the device into the computer, click a button and the device will enter a strong one-time password into the appropriate field on the computer. One of the larger providers of these USB devices are Yubico, with their USB stick Yubikey.

The Yubikey can be used with popular services like LastPass, to add an extra security layer onto your login. Now, we can have the same solution in Joomla.

When Joomla 3.0 was released, it incorporated a lot of new user interface elements in the administrator. Compared to Joomla 1.5 and 2.5, it was a big step forward, in my opinion. The inclusion of Twitter Bootstrap did a lot for the interface, but in the first iterations of Joomla 3.0, it was a bit immature.

Now, with the release of Joomla 3.2, the interface has been reworked quite a bit. Nothing revolutionary, but little things in many places, to improve how you work with the administrator. As one who has built large sites with Joomla 3.1, I think these improvements will be very helpful and time-saving.
