Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 42.
This week, the topics of posts are Joomla events, some new templates and some opinions about the Molajo distribution of Joomla 1.6.
Enjoy the read!
This is the second part of a two-part mini-series on how to add a module position to your Joomla template.
In this part I'm going to look at how to add the module position name to the template XML file.
I will also show you how to do some basic positioning and styling of the module using CSS.
In this post, I will delve deeper into how to add module positions to your template.

As you can imagine, I get a lot of requests to review and highlight Joomla! related products on this blog. As much as I want to help people, I just can't find the time to do them all. With over 4000 extensions in the Joomla Extensions Directory and a gazillion templates around, it goes without saying that it's impossible to cover it all.
That's why I've developed the concept of Quick Looks. These are paid, one-page overviews of a Joomla! template or extension. The overview will feature a short introduction, some screenshots, top features of the product and the cold facts like price etc.
Quick Looks are not reviews - but give you an insight into the workings of the product nonetheless.
Not so long ago, someone left a negative comment on this blog. The comment was more negative than others and directed towards a Joomla template developer. The commenter had experienced trouble with his Joomla website and needed to place the blame.
Criticism is OK, but negativity and the language used was not something I care for on my blog. So I didn't publish it.
Nevertheless, it got me thinking about the reason for the negative comment. Was the template developer to blame, or was it the user himself?
