Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 12:

- It's official! Joomla SEO goes mobile with sh404SEF
Written by Nick Savov
Today (Saturday, March 16th) is the gobal Pizza, Bugs, and Fun event. It's an all-day, in every time zone, global event that's open to all virtual participants that are interested. There will also be local venues wherever they are organized, including at Joomla!Day Boston. The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 and Joomla 2.5 bugs as possible before Joomla 3.1's release, which will be on or around the 28th of March, and Joomla 2.5.10's release.
This Bug Squash event is a great opportunity for intermediate to advanced users to learn how to contribute to Joomla bug fixes within the community. You do not have to be an expert coder or even a coder to contribute; all we ask is that you are familiar with running Joomla on your localhost before the event and that you consider yourself at least an intermediate user. We will provide you with the help and documentation that you need to test the Joomla patches (i.e. fixes), so please join us today and help us to make Joomla better!

Today we are proud to announce the official launch of sh404SEF® for Joomla 3. Building on our earlier release, sh404SEF® (version 4.0.3 and greater) is now fully compatible with a wide range of mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. To ensure the widest possible compatibility with future Joomla versions, sh404SEF® now relies heavily on the bootstrap-based responsive functionality that is baked into Joomla 3. As you can see above, this Joomla SEO add-on now has a look and feel similar to other add-ons built for Joomla 3.

In our previous post, we mentioned our novel top navigation bar that makes finding and editing URLs, page titles and meta descriptions a little easier. In the current release, you’ll find another productivity feature — the character counter.
