Yesterday was world backup day. Did you remember to take your backups? Of course you're taking them daily aren't you and not just once a year!!
Every Joomla user knows that they can use the awesome Akeeba Backup to take a backup of their site quickly and easily and even automate the process so that the backup is taken daily, with the backup archives stored in a secure off-site location.

We are midway through a 4 week trial of a new cheaper and slightly shorter subscription to our Joomla template club.
So for the next two weeks, if you haven't already, you can take advantage of the 2 month plan option. The 2 month option costs $30 AUD (For U.S. based folks thats around $27 USD) and is priced at the same rate as the 3 month option - $15 per month. It just provides a cheaper entry point for getting access to a single theme.

Zentools offers numerous options for organising and displaying Joomla content, including galleries, slideshows, accordions and a lot more. In this tutorial a combination of a Zentools grid and Joomla's Link A functionality is used to display content.
Using Joomla's Link A in a Zentools module means that when the module is clicked, you are directed to a different page from the original content source.

I've just put together a beta package for our upcoming release of Maps2 - our new Google maps Joomla module.
Maps2 is a significant update to our free map module JB Maps, in fact, Maps2 is a complete rethink on the whole methodology of using a map in Joomla.

As most IT professionals know, coffee and other caffeinated beverages are the key to running a successful agency. Running out of coffee supplies, especially the coffee itself, is thus a serious problem that happens all too often in offices around the world.
Unfortunately, most offices continue to use an analog caffeine delivery system which lacks the ability to monitor coffee supply levels. However, with the growing popularity of digital, pod-based coffee machines, we decided to apply our website monitoring technology to solve the problem of unexpected coffee outages.

You might have seen them on our social channels already: our new extension logo’s. The new logo designs are the first step in the new overall style we are working on. Here’s the story on how the new logos got shaped.
Why the new logos?
DOCman used to have a logo back in the days. But since we released both LOGman and FILEman we are using the Joomlatools logo for our extensions everywhere. This was a good decision since it gave us a consistent and recognizable style.
