Five Ways to Get a Review Edited or Removed
Written by Steve Burge   
Thursday, 03 July 2008 11:33
  1. I haven't used it, but ...  (please use it before you review it)
  2. How do I make it do this?  (please send support questions to the developer)
  3. Please could you make it do this?  (please send feature requests to the developer)
  4. I like it and am using it on my site: buy-viagra-and-play-texas-hold-em-with-angelina-jolie.com (self-promotional links will be removed)
  5. Add this code to make it work ... (unfortunately JED doesn't deal well with inserted code)

Its worth noting this line from the JED rules:

"The Joomla! Extension Directory reserves the right to edit and moderate all reviews to make sure their content is appropriate for publication on the JED."

That means that we may edit some reviews so that they obey JED rules. Its not unusual to get a review that is 90% fine and 10% unfit for publication (a self-promotional link inserted at the end for example). Rather than remove the whole review it makes sense simply to remove the invalid lines.

1.5 Template Forum Changes
Written by Jennifer Marriott   
Wednesday, 02 July 2008 05:51

Please note.. your posts have not been lost! 

All of the posts from the Usability and Accessibility Forum and the CSS and Design Forum have been merged into the main 1.5 Template Forum.  Don't worry, your posts are still there.

We made this change because it was confusing to users which forum to post in, and it was also difficult for other users to help with answering questions, because posts scattered among so many different boards. If you are looking for your post, you can view your posts by searching or by using the View your posts link at the top of the forum.

What hasn't changed is that there is still a specific forum to deal with Template Overrides, which is a very specific new topic, and of course if you have an issue with one of the default templates that are installed with Joomla! 1.5.x, we have the BEEZ, Milky Way and JAPurity forums still to handle those specific issues. The good news is hopefully this change will allow all of us to ask and answer questions and help each other more effectively. 

Please remember there are some resources on the Docs Site.  If you know of a css slick trick, or have information you can share about templating, the documentation site would be a great place for you to share that information.

In the future I hope to share some templating resources, and interesting templating tidbits so stay tuned.

Joomla!, Languages, Success
Written by József Tamás Herczeg

This is my opening blog entry here what I would like to celebrate with a special topic. I will sketch you a picture about the popularity of Joomla! from the viewpoint of the languages.

The internationalization is a hinge of the Joomla! 1.5.x release. The user interface of Joomla! 1.5.x is available in dozens of translations. You can obtain them from various resources, but if you are looking for a particular language, your first step should be to visit the Translations Project at JoomlaCode.

We have learnt that the search engines are our friends if we need something from the web. I read some blogs utilizing Google's services, I will do the same now with the global Google Search. Power users surely often turn to the Advanced Search feature. You will find a Language dropdown in this screen. Currently 43 languages can be selected to filter the results of the chosen language. I played it over with the keyword 'joomla' entered in the this exact wording or phrase field.
