Tips and Tutorials

This web site is currently powered by the Joomla 3.7 CMS, soon to be Joomla 3.8 then Joomla 4 at a date to be determined.

This web site was first built with Joomla! version 1.5.14 in early 2009.  In early June 2010 "we" upgraded to version 1.5.18, then the latest version. In December 2010 "we" upgraded to version 1.5.22, the last and final 1.5.x version before the major release 1.6.  Joomla v1.6 was released in December 2010. "We" will upgrade our Joomla sites to v1.6.x in Q1 2011.

In the v1.5 series of "core" PHP code upgrades none of the previously installed Joomla extensions (i.e. add-on code) needed replacement, although some had "upgrades" available. Upgrading them was a simple matter for the system administrator (i.e. me, the PI, JGW) to click on an extension "upgrade" button in the administrator's list of extension names (i.e. the respective lists of components, modules, or plug-ins).

The as yet unverified technical rumor has reached me that "access control" in Joomla v1.6 is superior to anything available for Drupal version 6 or the major new release, Drupal 7, released on Dec. 20, 2010.
