What’s up guys!

Since the release of Joomla 3.2 stable version earlier this month, we have been working extra hours to update our Joomla templates and extensions to be compatible with it.

Starting off the first batch of the Joomla 3.2 update series, we are eager to announce the first 10 Joomla extensions & 14 Responsive Joomla templates make it to the top list.

We kickoff this year's Christmas season early with our traditional free logo decorations for our members.

Free Christmas Logo Decoration.

Due to unavoidable circumstances we were not able to offer the free logo decorations last year but we are back on track this year, get your logo's touched by the JoomlArt's designers and get your site ready for this Christmas. Wondering how it works? Its easy, you give us your logo and we do the magic, check out how we did it last time.

Customers are crucial to any business model, and we understand that customer support plays an extremely important role here. It is difficult to make every individual customer happy. Hence I decided to take this opportunity to give you a tour around the workings of the customer support system today, with a few infographics down below (We know how wording can be puzzling and confusing, visualization is a much better option to stick with), and hopefully give you guys a chance to be in our shoes, even for a few minutes.

Warning: Please remember to ALWAYS take due back-up to your site before proceeding to any of the update to Joomla 3.2. Also take in consideration that some of our products are not yet compatible with Joomla 3.2 and we are still working on the upgrading process. We shall give you a heads up when everything is ready.

Joomla 3.2 stable release is finally here after its first public testing release since October 11th, 2013. Then, what's new in Joomla! 3.2?

We put those new features in a quick infographic, so you can share it with your friends to spread the news on Joomla 3.2. It's always something new for everyone!

I have been considering making a BIG change on how our customer support works. The idea came to me during my last visit to Stackideas.com - the best Joomla extension provider in the community (at least it is in my book). The support forum just blew me away with the Flattr button located at the bottom of each answer. When I found the answer to my problem, I could “thank” the author with Flattr. This allows them to later exchange this donation for real cash $$$. If you do not how Flattr works, jump over to the Flattr page website to get an insight.

Over the last few weeks, I have spent a lot of my time digging deeper into Flattr. I strongly believe it is the perfect system for our JoomlArt community along with our current private ticket system (using Kayako) and open support system on our forum (running Vbulletin)

If you could recall our old JoomlArt site, we used to have a complicated demo system for everything but Joomla extensions. We never had a dedicated demo site for our Joomla extensions, and guys normally had to go through info page or templates demo in order to see how the extensions function.

We did take time to work on this and guess what: a whole new and complete site only for extensions demo is out. The Extensions Demo site serves as a showcase for 25 Joomla Extensions Club extensions for Joomla 2.5 & Joomla 3, including modules, plugins and components.

Some of you may already be familiar with our heavy and complex Document system in Forums for both Joomla and Magento. Frankly speaking, Forums is not a good place to read userguide and documentation. Userguides and documents were put as forum threads and posts and in which we have received complaints from our users that they could not find documentation anywhere or it’s hard to view and follow. Understand the issues, we have started working on our new documentation site, along with new live site development.

After 2-month of effort, we are glad to introduce the all new Documentation site with a complete makeover in term of design and structure.

After 2 consecutive months of constantly experimenting, re-designing and optimizing the entire JoomlArt.com, we can finally call it DONE (or at least close to what we would like it to be). And for that, we just want to officially:

WELCOME TO OUR NEW HOME!

The old versus the new home

The old vs. the new home

The new version Bootstrap 3.0 has been released a few days back to celebrate Bootstrap 2nd birthday.
