The VirtueMart development team announced new release candidate version of VirtueMart 2.0 (RC3). Althrough it's not the final version yet, we believe it would fix many bugs found in previous versions of VirtueMart 2.0.

joomla page break default

Whenever you have too long pages, for better user experience, it's recommended to separate it to the several subpages. This feature exists in Joomla from the early days. It's performed by the Pagebreak plugin that comes with default Joomla installation. However, in the later Joomla versions it's enhanced and has more power. The options are "hidden" in the Plugin Manager and many Joomla users don't even know they exist.

google fonts

Google Web Fonts is a collection of fonts that you can use on your websites for free. There are several standard fonts that we use in web design that we all have installed on our computers. Those fonts are Arial, Verdana, Times New Roman and few more. You probably know that you can select any font in your CSS stylesheets just by entering it's name. But beware, if your visitor doesn't have this font installed on his operating system, his browser will show one of the default fonts. As a result of this, your design may look broken on the visitors browser.

user profile

If you are an experienced Joomla user, you probably developed many Joomla sites that have user accounts management. You know what I mean... Registration form, login module, pages visible only for registered members and things like that. We all know that Joomla 1.6 (and later) comes with advanced (and very complex) access control. But, how to achieve this simple task of customizing the registration form?

joomla template styles

Joomla 1.6 and later versions (like current 1.7) brought many improvement in Joomla's templating system. One of them is ability to have several styles (variants) of one template. For templates that comes without parameters or with just few of them, it's not important. However, for Joomla templates that count many parameters, it could be a nice feature.

joomla rtl support

We have upgraded all our Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.7 templates and added a new feature - RTL (Right-to-Left) text support. If writing starts from the right side of the page, and continues to the left, then we can call this language RTL language. Languages that use this system are based on Arabic alphabet (Arabic, Persian...), Hebrew alphabet (Hebrew, Yiddish...), and many more.

Joomla 1.6 has reached its end of life and would not be supported any more by Joomla developers team. What does it means? It means that, even there are some security problems found in the latest version of Joomla 1.6, the fixes would not be made and published.

Joomla users with fair knowledge of HTML know that Joomla editors (such as TinyMCE) sometimes can cut off a part(s) of their HTML code. How to fix this? There are different solutions for Joomla 1.5 and newer Joomla 1.6 and 1.7.
