Leonardo Di Caprio is one of the most famous actors in the world.

Leonardo has shown the ability to choose great roles, starring in movies from Inception and Gangs of New York to Titanic and Catch Me if You Can.

It seems he can also choose great software. His new site runs Joomla. This is a particularly interesting site in its design and its navigation.

Mobile Ready.  User Friendly.

Important! Current Joomla 2.5 / 1.7 /1.6 site owners (Backup before you upgrade)

2.5/1.7/1.6 Joomla sites allow for easy one click updates to the next version.  Before you attempt any updates to your site, make sure you have a backup ready.  If you have not done your diligence on all templates and extensions in your site to make sure they are 3.0 ready. You run a large risk of breaking your Joomla site from incompatible template or extensions.  It is suggested you upgrade a 2.5 site on a replicated staging site, once you have the site up and going, move it to production. The most important fact is to make sure you keep a current backup of your site that you can easily restore.

What are the major differences between Joomla 2.5 and 3.0? 

The most noticeable difference is the totally revamped administrator, which is updated to a modern design with many simpler and more friendly user-interfaces.  Also, Joomla 3.0 is now mobile friendly and can be used with any modern device.
In addition, there are dozens of improvements to the details of all of Joomla, such as a new installer which you will notice when creating a new Joomla 3.0 install.  Finally, Joomla 3.0 is packed with goodies for extension developers,  such as Bootstrap support and jQuery support.

Consider this your invitation to join us this Saturday, the 22nd of September, for the final Pizza, Bugs, and Fun (and Birthday Party!) before Joomla 3.0's release next Thursday, the 27th of September.  It's an all-day global event that's open to all virtual participants that are interested.  There will also be local venues wherever they are organized.  The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 bugs as possible before Joomla 3's release.

This Bug Squish 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 3 patches (i.e. fixes), so please join us this weekend and help us to make Joomla 3 better!

Detailed information about the event can be found in the wiki at,_2012

 Joomla!Day Spain 2012, Mérida

Register Now!


What is it?

The 5th Joomla! Day Spain is taking place in Mérida, Spain on September 28 - 29, 2012. This conference is the biggest Joomla! event taking place in Spain, and a great opportunity too meet many of this great community's members. A beautiful venue will welcome all attendees, that will be able to share knowledge about the modern CMS Joomla! while they admire Mérida's mighty roman theatre or any of the many other monuments of this great city (we even have ruins INSIDE the venue! :D ).
This year the event organizers have taken extra care not only with what will happen during the sessions, but also with what will take place before, between and after them. Because Joomla!Days are great events to learn and discover, but very specially to meet people. Ranging from a Guinnes record (guess on what! clue: food related) to typical spanish games, coffee breaks and lunch time will be as exciting as the sessions.
