Joomla Job Boards

Several people have asked me what is available to create job listings on a Joomla site. You can view these at the Joomla Extensions Directory. The latest Job Board release is JA Job Board by JoomlArt. With a starting price of $290, this is one of the more expensive Joomla extensions around. However if you're making money from your job listings, you will quickly recover this investment and end up with a full featured application.

No one is going to contact you if you post here. Have you tried asking for support from the developer?

SuperBlogger

Although Joomla can display articles like a blog, to get full blogging features requires you to install one or more extensions. The new SuperBlogger extension from JoomlaWorks includes many nice blogging features such as comments, social bookmarking and ratings. This is a commercial extension but at just €7 it is a bargain.

During the Joomla 1.5 installation process, you specify a password but the username is automatically assigned as 'admin'. Most people don't bother changing this which weakens your security as hackers already know half of your login details.

Viewing template positions

In the Build a Joomla Website training, you learn how to view your template positions in Administrator. However there are times when it would be handy to be able to do this quickly in the front-end. You do this by adding ?tp=1 to the end of your home page URL.
