We are witnesses of a flood of responsive websites and templates. All them promises that, if your site uses them, it will look great on all screen sizes and all mobile devices based on iOS (iPad, iPhone and iPod) and Android (Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, etc.).

Some of our templates have the reflection JavaScript incorporated. It creates a nice reflection effect of the images. This script has problems with new Internet Explorer IE10 and instead of the reflected image, it shows a duplicate of the image.

Joomla 2.5 Update

One of the coolest new features of Joomla 2.5 is the possibility of the automatic one-click updates. It's not necessary to download and upload the patches by FTP anymore. The update process is completely automatic now. But, not always completely problems free.

k2 not protected from comments spam

K2 is probably the most popular Joomla component today. It enables Joomla with two very important features that per our opinion should be incorporated in the core Joomla. Beside the many other features, those two most important features are content tagging and comments of articles. The comment form in your article pages is one of the most often used for spamming. There's no better way for a spammer to get a link from your site than to leave a pointless comment on your article.

Before you start, please keep in mind that HotStart is a new Joomla installation. Don't try to install it into your existing Joomla.

On this page, we will explain why the responsive web sites are so popular these days.

joomla 2.5 upgrade process

On January 25, 2012., the new version of Joomla has become available for download. It's Joomla 2.5. Many of Joomla users who are not so familiar with the history of Joomla CMS would think it's another major release that's very different from the previous. Also, many users are probably concerned about complexity of the update process.

When installing Joomla, the installer script asked you to select a language. English language was selected by default. But you remember well, you selected your native language. However, when you opened Joomla backend, everything is still in English.
