A Joomla Workshop

A Joomla Workshop

I’m doing a whole day workshop on blogging and podcasting for the entire Newsbreak team. Actually, make that a Joomla Workshop.

Joomla Workshop


Joomla has really positioned itself as a good CMS for portal/newsites.

Btw, thanks to all those who inquired about sponsoring the Philippine Blog Awards ’07 (I got around a dozen people/companies already). If you haven’t heard nor gotten a reply from me, please re-sent. :D

Abe is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of YugaTech. You Can follow him on Twitter @abeolandres.

    Yes, Joomla is good. I have been eying it, but it still doesn’t support multiple and nested categories :( Until that time…

    Joomla is good though needs a lot of work on the usability side. Most of the time, it’s too much for what people intend to use it for.

    I junked a joomla system and replaced it with a customized wordpress one. ;)

    I’m starting to learn Joomla just last night, when I installed it and read and ebook. So far everything has been going smoothly. I don’t like the lay-out though, of the Newsbreak website. Too cluttered, they use serif fonts and a lot of ads.

    If the business news/chismis is to be believe, Tonyboy sure needs the ads. Well, while he still has a few million left, maybe Abe can help him invest it in Pay Per Click!

    Thanks for your assistance yesterday Abe. The team really appreciated it.

    WordPress is great for a blog. But Joomla is really a very good and powerful CMS for a news site. You just have to take some time to study it and figure out how it works.

    About the look of the new Newsbreak website, the team is looking for a good web artist (who has some experience designing a joomla template) to help us improve our site template. If you know of anybody, please refer them to us.

    If there are any more comments that might help in improving the site, the link to my name opens a feedback form. The Newsbreak team will really appreciate receiving feedback on this.

    Thanks for posting on this, Abe. Joomla has indeed evolved to a much more impressive state than many of the other free CMS’s. I’m exploring starting another blog which really won’t ‘fit’ in the sequential posts, view one after another mode that WordPress does so well. I looked at a few other CMS’s over the past few weeks and they gave me a headache.

    Props to Joomla’s leadership also for doing something too many other freebie programs don’t do … keeping the current version connected with Fantastico. Nothing more annoying than setting up an app through Fantastico and then finding out the owners/maintainers have jumped several versions ahead, so you have to do it all over again, manually.
    @ Joseph … what was the ebook you read on Joomla? Any other good (preferably free) Joomla learning sources out there?

  8. This is the suitable weblog for anybody who desires to find out about this topic. You realize so much its virtually hard to argue with you (not that I truly would want…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just nice!

  9. I really like the theme on your blog, I run a website too, and I would like to use this theme. Is it a free style, or is it custom?
