Ohanah - Event & Ticketing made really easy!

Ohanah - Event & Ticketing made really easy!

Event manager extensions consist of a calendar of events page, and an added ticketing feature, which enables visitors to view, book, pay for, and receive tickets, via email or as a downloadable PDF.

These are great extensions for you to recommend to clients. They add value to a site, cost very little, and add a user-interaction element your clients had perhaps not considered.

In this article I shall be reviewing Ohanah.

How Many of These Joomla Websites Have You Visited?

How Many of These Joomla Websites Have You Visited?

As Joomla site designers, it is easy to forget that the tool we all love so much, is itself a labour of love. Unlike other large Open Source projects, Joomla is an all-volunteer organization. Without the international community of diverse expertise, passion and commitment, the project would not be a fraction of what it is today.

What's new in Joomla 3.5?

What's new in Joomla 3.5?

Joomla 3.5 has now been released and can be downloaded from Joomla.org. Along with the usual bug fixes, there are several new features of interest, including plugins to alert you to future updates, to help you provide system information for support and an easier method of customising the Protostar template. All of which make this a very useful upgrade.

Whether You Love or Hate Web Design, I Want to interview You

I am in the process of creating a new course on how to start a web design business. To help students decide if a web design business is right for them, I am including interviews from current and past developers. If that's you, would you like to be interviewed? I am looking for a few people who started their own web design business and love it. However in the interest of balance, I am also looking for those who started and decided it is not for them. Note that this is NOT directly related to Joomla. It is about your experience with web design as a whole.

I am offering a small payment in return for your time.

To be considered, please write to [email protected] with one of the following subject lines:

If you are or have been the owner of a web design business and you love(d) it, then make the subject "Web Design is Awesome"

If you tried starting a web design business or if you're in one now and you don't like it, make the subject "Web design Sucks"

Then tell me a bit about your web design business background and if I think this will work out, I will be in touch in a couple of days.
