Last week Joomla celebrated a milestone … Ten Million Downloads. Congrats Joomla!! That’s a lot of downloads. Are there 10 million Joomla sites? I really doubt that there. But, Joomla continues to be one of the most popular content management systems; continuing to duke it out with Drupal and their loyal community. Joomla also released their latest stable version 1.5.11; which I already commented on last week.
If you are familiar with Joomla then you are probably also familiar with Community Builder; a highly favored extension by thousands, to the Joomla CMS. I received word from the Joomlapolis Security Team that Joomlapolitan has advised anyone still using CB 1.1 to immediately update to 1.2.1 for security reasons. If you are running CB 1.1 make sure to update A.S.A.P.
For Joomla site owners and developers that are looking for a classified ad solution, JoomClan Classified Listings component has just released news of several fixes, including:
Fixes that address the following:
- ‘uddstart’ is undefined and other errors in IE8
- Unable to select my PayPal account
- Drop Down Select Option
- Free Ad Post Issue
I purchased and downloaded this component not too long back. I think it had the potential to be one of the best, if not the best classified listings component that runs native on Joomla 1.5.10 rather than the legacy Joomla. However, when I downloaded it (I believe it was their beta version, it still was a bit buggy) there were issues with that version that made in unworkable for my application at that time. I removed the application and they refunded my money promptly. There are only a small handful of options for classified ad extensions to Joomla. The JoomClan component, in my opinion, has the most to offer in its environment.
With that said, I have already downloaded the newly released version of Joomla; and I believe I will go ahead and get it setup and give it a test run on another site.
