Joomla 4 is catching up with the new (and not so new) web technologies, technologies that are now widely supported by most modern browsers. One of these techniques is Web Components. Web components allow developers to reuse custom elements on a web page or web app without the fear of code collusion.
The Joomla 4 loader is now available as a web component.
The administrator console user interface has been greatly improved in Joomla! 4. Focus has been made on accessibility and mobile-first experience.
While moving my own extensions to Joomla 4, I dug into the differences in the look and feel of radio buttons and list fields to ensure they would have a cohesive look throughout.
The extensions created by SimplifyYourWeb offer a wide number of options that allow you to increase page load performance. At times, I realize that these options are not always taken advantage of. Here is an exhaustive look at those advanced parameters and what they can do to help.
Joomla! 2.5 support ended December 31, 2014 (the latest official release is 2.5.28). Although this was more than 3 years ago, many sites have not yet migrated to Joomla! 3 (find reasons why you should migrate here).
Many of those sites used the Google reCaptcha v1 widget. Google turned off reCAPTCHA v1 March 31, 2018. Therefore, any call to the v1 API stopped working after March 31, 2018, resulting in failing form submissions.
Trombinoscope Contacts v3.0 free and pro will bring a truck load of improvements and new features that I could not wait to share with you. The beta testing will open soon!
Joomla! 3 is packaged with Bootstrap 2.3.2, which is the latest Bootstrap 2 version ever released.
Simplify Your Web extensions, ever since the beginnings of Joomla 3, have been using the version of Bootstrap included with the Joomla core.
Although all versions of Joomla 3, for the sake of compatibility, remain on Bootstrap 2, more and more templates have evolved and moved on to use Bootstrap 3 or the latest Bootstrap 4.
PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a set of security standards that websites have to follow in order to be able to process credit card transactions.
Generally, a third-party security assessor conducts the tests and generates a PCI compliance report, examining the physical infrastructure of the website, its access and potential code vulnerabilities.
The Joomla! platform is more secure than ever but third-party extensions and vendors may still have code issues that may need to be addressed.
