Joomla Day Austin is right around the corner, held on September 15th in Austin, Texas. JDay Austin will be unique for several reasons such as being held in a historic Austin movie theater located in downtown Austin and using an entirely different presentation method. The most important difference is that the team of speakers is currently constructing a new Joomla website for an Austin Non-profit, Minis and Friends.

Tešanj (pronounce 'Teshagn') is a small ancient town in the North of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a now independant country that was once part of what was Yugoslavia. Although it looks now totally peaceful, nothing showing, except for a few bullet holes on some walls, the terrible war that took place in that region of the world from 1992 to 1995, I am told that, beyond the curtains, some old loves and hates are stil present between the 3 communities.

A while back we wrote a blog post asking the community to nominate people that they felt would be good candidates to join the Community Leadership Team. From those nominations, we are pleased to announce that we had selected six people. Four people accepted our invitation, while two chose to instead focus on their current volunteer roles in the community. We thank all of the people that we invited for their kind and thoughtful responses, as well as the Joomla Community for the many excellent suggestions.

Us and them.
I was recently asked two excellent blogging questions:
How personal should a business blog be?
In my view, the more personal the better.
People love reading stories.

In some of our recent Joomla templates like Newscycle and as far back as Rasa, you may have noticed that we implemented some subline styling ion the menu items. A design element that has gained a fair amount of attention and use from the design community in the last 12 months or so. Up until now we have relied on a small modification to the awesome bbcode plugin from YV to do the heavy lifting.

Our September Joomla template release is shaping up to be a bit of a departure from some our recent offerings. We have been playing with this jQuery full screen slideshow plugin and in a word it is simply beautiful to work with. The way it is shaping up it is going to be a killer photographer's folio / blog template with some pretty extraordinary features for getting your work out there.
