The Guest User Group - Hiding menu items and module

Written by Brian Teeman 

A lot of work went in to preparing that presentation and I hope to be taking it around the world in the coming months. (If you can't wait to see it live or for the video you can see the slides now.) Reducing the "Hidden Secrets" to a 45 minute presentation sadly meant that some of them were dropped so I intend to write about them here instead.

The 4 Pillars of Open Source Communities

Written by Steve Burge

In 2006 I quit my job to work full-time in open source. It was fortunate timing, because the years since then have seen extraordinary growth.

Great video from Emerson Rocha Luiz as he builds the Joomlerios Template. The video covers creating a Template, Modules, positions, and so on, as Emerson integrates tools like 960 Grid System and Bootstrap into Joomla 1.7. It is a very helpful video for professional frontend devs to see the real power of Joomla for building professional websites.

Emptying the trash in Joomla 1.7

Written by Matthew Hayashida

Joomla 1.7 has simplified much of the Joomla content workflow, making things easier and faster to do. However, one of the things that has gotten slightly more complicated is finding and emptying the trash.

In Joomla 1.5, I'm sure you know that the article trash can be easily managed and emptied by selecting Content > Article Trash from the main menu. In Joomla 1.7, that menu item is gone but the trash feature is still there.
