StyleWare is announcing that from 1st January 2014 will end the support for all extensions on Joomla! 1.5. These will also no longer available for download since that date.

Joomla! 1.5 is end of life (not supported) since more than year and while we wanted to provide some extended support, it is time to move on.

What does it means for you – explained with FAQs

Can I continue using the purchased extension on my Joomla! 1.5 site?

Yes, but if you have any issues with it, we will not support it.

Can I download Joomla! 1.5 extensions?

You can download these till 31.12.2013, afterwards these will not be available.

My site is running Joomla! 1.5 with your extensions, what should I do?

Joomla! 1.5 is no longer supported and we recommend you to migrate to Joomla! 2.5 or Joomla! 3.X, whatever is more appropriate for you. Our extensions run on both of these versions. However, if for some reason you don’t want to or can’t migrate, you can continue using Joomla! 1.5 and our old versions at your own risk.

I have purchased an extension more than year ago, can I download the version for 2.5 or 3.X?

If your subscription has expired, you will need to do a new purchase. If your subscription is still active, you can download the latest version from the downloads.

As can be seen in the Joomla Extensions Directory, there are number of solutions for displaying a Google Map in a Joomla! Module. We offer two such modules and we are going to talk about one of these today.

Let's start with the other, which is easier. Our free Google Maps Module (JED Listing) offers very basic functionality, which is display a Google map through coordinates and a single pin on it. That's all it does. Nothing more or nothing less. You can download it for free from our web site (requires registration).

Now, our commercial (GPL) Google Maps Module (JED Listing) offers much more complex tasks and features. Let's prepare a short summary of all of the features and several regimes:

Regime Custom Markers – it allows you to enter unlimited number of items on the map:

  • Geocoding – Just enter the address and the module will geocode with the right coordinates (it works with the Google Geocode API);
  • Locale – manage the language in which the map is loaded;
  • CURL – the module works in two modes with or without CURL, based on your server;
  • Mode – Roadmap, Satellite, Hybrid, Terrain. It is up to you to decide;
  • Clustering – Group near pins on the map and ungroup on zoom;
  • Maximum Zoom on clustering – Select the value for zoom to enable the clustering;
  • Directions – Do you want the users to find out the fastest way to get to the pins you entered?
  • 4 icon colors plus easy option to add own icons;
  • Display information from extrafields in a pop over the pin;
  • Control the map width and height easily;
  • Add Panoramio, Weather, Clouds or Google Places with one click;
  • Monetize with Google AdSense in Map;
  • Use Colorizr to create an unique visual design for your map;

On top of that, the module works excellent with our Joomla Google Maps Plugin for K2, it can display maps for specific categories or specific items. Everything is under your control. Select if items from sub-categories to be displayed, to show "read more" link.

Joomla! Day Bulgaria 2012

Joomla! Day Bulgaria 2012

We at StyleWare are quite proud for being part of the Joomla! Day in Bulgaria this year. It was tremendous event with a lot of international speakers, most notable being Fotis from Joomlaworks and Max from Virtuemart.

The fourth Joomla! Day in Bulgaria and the first ever with international speakers started with a session about Joomla! 3.0 by Mihail Semerdzhiev, explaining the Joomla! versions lifecycle and what’s new in Joomla! 3.0. The main message was: Don’t upgrade if you don’t know what are you doing and if you plan a site to be live after 5-6 months, it is probably a good idea to consider Joomla! 3.0 as a starting point.

The next session was by Robin Poort, who displayed basics and advanced mechanics in elevator’s design. Kidding, now seriously, he was brilliant in showing examples how the usability of every site could be improved and how forms matter for end users. Don’t make me think was the main message he made the crowd to believe in.

It was time for the main sponsor of the event – to demonstrate their cloud hosting solutions in a short presentation by Lyubomir Rusanov, CEO of the company. Superhosting is the main sponsor of Joomla! Day in Bulgaria for second year in row.

After short launch break, Fotis Evangelou from Joomlaworks demonstrated the abilities of K2, its current state and revealed some of the features and improvements of the upcoming version 3 of the most popular Content Construction Kit for Joomla! We don’t want to give hints, but the future looks more than promising. A lot of questions came out after Fotis’s session and we at StyleWare are proud to be one of the companies devoted in producing K2 Extensions.

Edward Dimitrov from 3D Web Design presented the opportunities to earn money with Joomla! in different ways, some of them looking quite obvious, but others being innovative and very interesting to consider.

Joomla! Day Bulgaria 2012 continued with exciting session by Max Milbers, the Project Leader of VirtueMart, who get in very deep explanations of VM 2.0 and its features. Virtuemart is currently one of the most popular e-commerce software in Bulgaria.

After the coffee break in the afternoon, there was a small surprise. Fotis Evangelou was supposed to speak about the ways to improve the Joomla! performance, but he was surprisingly joined by Theo van der Zee from Theme Partner, who gave excellent advises on frontend performance and measurement. This was probably the best presentation for the day, highly valued even by non-Joomla! developers, who attended the event.

The event ended with long and very informative presentation by Stanislav Dimitrov from Hop Online, who basically put within one hour all current SEO trends, his experience and hints how to solve current issues in respect to changes in the Google search algorithms. Stanislav is probably one of the best speakers for such type of events in Bulgaria. Very informative, but still understandable, his presentation was the culmination of the Joomla! Day 2012 in Bulgaria.

The event was hosted by the Telerik Academy, sponsored by Superhosting, SiteGround, K2 (JoomlaWorks), VirtueMart, Theme Partner, 3D Web Design, StyleWare, Joomla! Bulgaria, Joomlart and Intuitive Technology.

Media partners of the event were, ADX, MixMedia, and Nixanbal.

It all ended in a beer and more hard drinks party in Ugo Pizza near the event space. Hope to see you in the next year Joomla! Day!
