Joomla Extensions


While looking for an improved EU Privacy Directive compliant plugin Tim Austin found web357.

Web357 is a young team of internet lovers and professionals specialising in developing premium extensions for the Joomla! Content Management System (CMS).

Web357's Cookie Policy Notification Bar fitted the bill.

The support provided by web357 goes above and beyond what is normally expected.

Other Joomla! plugins and components are also provided.

Tim Austin is pleased to be able to highly recommend web357.

Joomla Training and How To Guides

If you feel that building and / or running a Joomla! based website a daunting prospect - perhaps you can be helped to feel that advice is at hand.

Arguably one of the most valuable "assets" - if not the most valuable asset - is knowledge, information.

A saying goes something along the lines of: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man how to fish and you feed him for life".

Ok - perhaps to be politically correct I should change "man" for "person".

This saying could, perhaps, be converted to learning how to use Joomla! - or anything else really for that matter.

Carrying out an update, writing / publishing an article, creating a category . . .

Someone can do it for you - perhaps at a financial cost - but in these days of austerity measures, you could learn how to do it yourself. Saving some money and have added personal value by learning a new skill.

Instead, perhaps, of you paying someone else to create and publish your next masterpiece article, or to create your article categories, or spruce up your website - someone else who does not have the time or inclination to do these things themselves could pay you.

So where we going with this ?

With hundreds of "How to ..." guides, and dozens of Video tutorials about the various aspects of Joomla! web design, administration, coding, Search Engine Optimisation & Marketing, and much more - Tim Austin recommends OSTraining.

With a number of subscription levels, there is bound to be a level to suit most budgets - perhaps a short (e.g 1 month) subscription to begin with to help determine training supplier effectiveness.

If you have questions - the OSTraining staff regularly contribute to their site Support Forum.
