Free Joomla community magazine - September edition now ready to read.
The September 2010 Issue of the Joomla! Community Magazine is of interest to Joomla users, admins and developers.
The first two items this month are a bit introspective - an interview with the editor and a short article on the Packt Open Source awards - vote for Joomla?
We have the third installment of detailed looks at Joomla! template frameworks and welcome article on a subject that may not be directly about Joomla, but it confuses a lot of expert uers - how to configure .htaccess and robot.txt for search engine optimization.
A case study on converting the the Kosher Kingdom website from Flash to Joomla is a bit of a puff piece but at least it proves you can do commerce web sites with Joomla including integration of a shopping cart and point of sale system. And it rounds off with two security articles: improving your site's security by changing the default super administrator username and id provides what should be obvious advice as does hiding and protecting your configuration.php file - but security isn't something you can ever take for granted.
Overall it's not as good an issue as the first - too many puff pieces and too little practical information. But it's free and getting people to write anything at all for free isn't easy - documenation or magazines.
Read September 2010 Issue for free.
