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.
