[Its also built on wordpress and using it in the last few days has really helped me to see the power and simplicity of the platform. I think that using different cms/blogging platforms can really help to change your workflow as well as open your mind to different ways of thinking, which can only be good in terms of creativity from a writing and a design point of view.
In the tradition of end of year wrap ups I asked the JB team to put together some of the highlights for their work and personal life in 2009. While I asked everyone to contribute Jeremy, Barabara and myself were the only ones to actually put some fingers to keyboard; Jason was too busy snorkelling in crystal blue waters off the Australian east coast, Seth was too busy having an extended christmas/birthday, Ed was still eating christmas turkey and Rikard got lost in the Norwegian snow :)

General Help: Any help with Joomla, design or coding that you need a little nudge with.
It seems like an age since I promised that we would be redesigning and rebooting the Joomlabamboo website but after ten mockups it seems Im no closer to deciding on a new design for the site. Whats that old adage about a plumber always having a leaking tap? It seems like its harder for a web designer to redesign their own website rather than some one elses. So in lieu of a new design Ive just published a new download area that should make downloading templates and their extensions a lot easier.
Let Joomlabamboo do the dirty work for you! We have extensive experience with installing Joomla, our templates and our quick install packs. For a small fee we will do the hard work for you (within 24 hours and often faster) ... so all you need to do is add your content and your website is up and running.
As you may or may not know Im rebuilding the entire Joomlabamboo site from the ground up and as a part of the rebuild I procured the services of Paul Hassing to do some of the copywriting. I first met Paul on Twitter via someone elses tweet and a quick look at his bio made me want to know more. In a matter of a few clicks I was deep in conversation with Paul, finding out what he does and more importantly how he could help me. Paul Hassing, is the Founder & Senior Writer for the Feisty Empire and the following is an overview on what he does and his views on writing for the web and using social media for internet marketing.
One of the main issues that gets in the way of being able to use a Joomla 1.0 module in Joomla 1.5 using legacy mode is the way that Joomla 1.5 creates the module folder structure.
In Joomla 1.0 when referencing a script the the script reference looked something like this:
That would reference the script nicely since in Joomla 1.0 all of the module files are in the module directory as per the image below.
I stumbled upon the Jquery UI themer this morning. Its a great, easy way to drum up some styling on your jquery accordion, tabs, slider, date picker and dialogue box. Key in your colours or even choose from the theme gallery, download the zip and presto there you have it ... your very own personalised Jquery interface, styled and ready to go.
As a matter of course we are going to be shifting template development solely to the Joomla 1.5 platform. This will enable us to make better use of the advanced templating features of Joomla 1.5 and allow for a better work flow for all support material and quick start packages.
We will however offer a template customisation service whereby a Joomla 1.5 template will be able to be ported back to Joomla 1.0. We will have more details for this soon.
The change will take effect for the August template release.
