JSN Template Framework - Things behind the scenes

/ / in JoomlaShine News

Joomla folks say that Joomla framework is not new terminology. But hey, JSN Template Framework? It sounds strange… even though it has been developed for countless hours by Joomlashine’s developers, almost all information about this framework has been kept quiet until now - now that it is rock solid, running smoothly and inspiringly.

Please distinguish between our JSN Template framework and other products: While almost all other Joomla frameworks allow you to build Joomla templates, JSN Template Framework encourages you to customize Joomlashine’s templates better.

Customize Joomla Extensions With Override

/ / in Joomla Tutorials

We all know that Joomla is a fantastic CMS for building professional websites. The JED (Joomla Extension Directory) is full of components, modules and plugins that can add almost any type of functionality to any Joomla site. That's great and all but what if you find a component or module that gives the functionality needed but the output and layout is not exactly what you want? A big mistake that some developers and webmasters make is going in and editing the core code of an extension. Joomla makes it easy by allowing overrides.

What is an Override?

An override is a copy of an extensions layout/template file that is placed in your Joomla template directory. You can then customize it to your liking. The difference with doing this as oppose to just editing the file in the extension directory is that when you upgrade Joomla or the extension, your changes will not be replaced with the new versions. Joomla knows to look in the overridden file first, then the actual extensions file.

Joomla Optimization: Consider Deploying a CDN

/ / in Joomla Tutorials

Page loading times on your website are important for a number of reasons. Not only can slow pages frustrate visitors and cost you conversions, but the search engines also take an interest in your page loading times, meaning slow-loading pages can affect your SEO. If you have a website running on Joomla, one option you might want to consider to improve your page loading times is to deploy a Content Delivery Network (CDN).

What is a CDN?

A CDN consists of a number of optimized servers located all over the world. These servers work together to distribute content, which includes downloadable objects, JavaScript files, applications and more. The basic principle is that when someone visits your website, their data comes from the server that is located nearest to them, significantly increasingly page load times wherever they are located in the world.

Why Use One?

There are a number of reasons why using a CDN for your Joomla website is a good idea. Faster page load times is the main reason to invest in a good CDN. When customers visit a website that performs badly and the pages take a long time to load, at best they will hit the back button and head to one of your competitors’ websites; at worse you could damage the reputation of your brand.
