Joomla blog posts from around the web (04/11)

joomla-week-04Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during the last week.

Brian Teeman's been busy this week - presenting three posts about various Joomla topics. That's what happens when you travel, I guess - you get inspired!

There's also a post about the first JoomlaDay Chile by Ryan Ozimek.

Lastly, Amy Stephen has taken a look at how to create overrides for the Joomla! 1.6 menu item metadata.xml file. Warning: Geek stuff ;)

Have a great week!

My favourite ipad apps - Wooji Presentation Remote

Written by Brian Teeman

If you have seen any of my presentations, online or in person, you will know that I am not a fan of slides with hundreds of words. Usually I just have a picture and a few words or phrase.

These words are there for you, the audience, to remember the key fact and as a reminder to me about what I am supposed to talk about. Sometimes they're not enough and I have a few extra notes just for me.

Joomla as a fashion accessory

Written by Brian Teeman

The Joomla logo is a pretty cool design and it does seem to appear on virtually all my t-shirts these days. There are even some people who have a tattoo of joomla somewhere on their body but I bet you never thought you would see the Joomla logo as a fashion accessory.

Couchsurfing Joomla across the world

Written by Brian Teeman

Just one small beer too many and crazy ideas start to sound sensible. I'm sure you've all been there and had an idea in a drunken moment that in the light of the day perhaps isn't such a "no-brainer" after all.  That's exactly what happened during JoomlaDay Chile.

Override for the Joomla! 1.6 Menu Item metadata.xml File

Written by Amy Stephen

Last week, I shared a system plugin called Override with examples of how to override Joomla! 1.6 Core Classes. I needed to identify options for overriding core code in Joomla! 1.6 for the Molajo distribution for those rare cases when Extensions don't quite get you there. I shared it hoping it might be useful to others.

Joomla without barriers

Written by Brian Teeman

I began my keynote presentation in Santiago with an apology that the presentation would be in English. Being British I have a very poor appreciation of the importance of speaking any language other than English. Even at school the French I was taught would not really help me with conversational French (and even then I was not a very good student).
