On Tuesday the 7th of February at 6pm, the JUGA was hosted by Greg at PROBIZ.

New key features in Joomla 2.5 were discussed, mainly:
  • - Built in captcha with possibility to develop other, more efficient captcha plugins than the standard (eg arithmetic based ones)
  • - Additions to the article manager which for previous Joomla templates affect template overrides of com_content/views/article/tmpl/default.php, namely easy addition of full article background images, article external urls and additional page navigation
  • - Security release of 2.5.1
Jared from Alltraders presented on one of the most useful tools for managing projects, and keeping both you, your developing team, and clients happy and in agreeance - a Project Brief.

A copy of the handout is available here:

We also went through what was discussed in November 2011's meeting - namely the outline of this year's Joomla User Group Adelaide meetings. The next meeting is scheduled to be held on April 10th at Alltraders.

It was discussed to choose a topic of discussion during the next month for the next meeting. The following possible topics are all possibilities (in no particular order):

htaccess / General hints and tips - by Michael Garratt
MailChimp training - by August Boehm
Joomla development in a jiffy - part 2 - by Eli Burford (sequel to last year's presentation)
Hikashop - by Greg Willson
Artisteer - by Greg Willson
Google Analytics - by August Boehm
301 Redirects - by Michael Garratt
Sitemaps for Google index and news - by August Boehm
Using Fonts - by Eli Burford
Responsive Design - by Eli Burford / August Boehm
Good Designing - by Cohen Gum
Social Media - MD
Project Management - by Jared Green
Techniques of Running a Project - by Jared Green
Marketing Methodology for Selling Websites - by Jared Green
TBA - by Michael Garratt
Security Backups and Maintenance - by Jared Green / Michael Garratt / Greg Willson

It could well be the case that two topics can be presented per meeting (only 5 more meetings left of this year).

I really enjoyed the most recent JUGA! B)

As always, a great friendly and supportive group of people. Not to forget to mention that Greg's place was great to present at! (Awesome new LCD)

Can't wait for the next meet.

I reckon we should do one more aimed at Website administration for users.
