Now that the Programming Joomla Plugins book is out there and selling, our designer Ruben Creemers is also sharing his creative work with the crowd. Or should I say art? He created the book cover, the page layouts, typography, banners, advertizements - all with an eye for awesomeness. And he even laid the wooden floor himself that brings out the book on artistic photos so nicely. Checkout his...

You've probably noticed that I use some pretty big photos on each blog post here. That should mean big file sizes - but it doesn't have to.
When you take a high resolution digital photo and simply resize it for your web site you are NOT compressing it. Or if you are, then you are probably not compressing it as much as you could be.

I use a macbook air as my only computer and I do not have an external display. This means that my screen has a maximum resolution of 1440 x 900.
For those of you with multiple monitor setups you might think it is odd but it works for me and forces me to concentrate on the task at hand (or it would if I didn't have a tablet and phone as well).

Yireo is proud to be sponsoring the tenth (!) edition of the JoomlaDays Netherlands 2015. The days will take place on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th of April 2015 in Zeist. We are looking forward to this great event. Let's see what is up this year.
Yireo is in the business of sharing. We develop some software, share it for free and than earn money by providing paid support on top of it. We love doing this. There's a lot we do that we don't share though. Here's a listing, to share some things with you anyway.
On 13th and 14th of February 2015, it is time for MageStackDay - two days in which the Magento community will try to solve as many as open questions on the Magento Stack Exchange site as possible. Yireo is joining in! Let's see what this is all about.
In all the years that I have used Joomla I have never really seen the need for front end editing. Why bother? I could just do everything in the admin.
There were always too many things that I couldn't do on the front end that meant I was forever switching between the two.
Editing your site can be hard
I get it that people don't want to be bothered with the complex interface of the...
For years when creating web sites we've added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to our site. Please stop NOW.
You don't need an FAQ
The usual answer is that this is where we put all the questions that people are always asking us and it saves time answering the same questions over and over again. That's why it is called "frequently asked questions" - makes sense doesn't it. NO!
