    • Writing better articles with graphics and how to make them look good in print and on screen

      Writing great articles.

      This is not in terms of words, but how to set up good articles.

      For example I have written a great article with lots of embeded graphics as a tutorial on how to use excel, however the article is very long - should i break this into pages, if so how, also some of the great screen shots i have look good on screen, but when you click print or pdf the result is just horrible, with graphicvs being too big to fit on the page in portrait mode.
      This would be a great tutorial and it…

        • Best practices for dev, staging & production set-up

          I'm trying to "do-the-right-thing" for making a joomla/virtuemart site. So, I've just set-up a new install of xampp on my laptop with Apache,
          MySql, FileZilla, Mercury and added Joomla! And I guess, well, I think, or at least I'm assuming that I'll set-up a staging area on my host's server and a production folder as well.

          But I'm just curious how do other folks do a set-up?

              • CCK's Why?

                What are CCK's and how to use them to get best results.
                Are they just a way of getting sub-categories or do they have a lot more going for them.
                They are all document poor, so not easy to use for anyone other than avid tech-heads.
                Tutorials on what to use them for and how to use them

                • Personalising Mosets tree templates. I have looked everywhere and cant find any tutorials!

                  I need to skin up a mosets tree template in the same theme as my site. I cant find how to do this anywhere and there is also limited availability to buying premade templates. There seems to be a demand for this but no one is answering!

                      • Creating a mobile device-friendly template as the default for mobile devices

                        I would like to have my sites default to a mobile-friendly template (with the option to switch) to make the site as usable as it can be from iPhones, Android phones, windows mobile, wap, whatever. Pre-made templates seem to be few and far between. How do we get the site to properly choose the template? What are best practices for designing the template if we try it ourselves?

                        • How to setup and configure sh404sef

                          For many websites setting up SEO is a major bullet point on the project outline. So many articles that I read make the assumption that I know what the issues are, and the best practices, and they offer a trick or some tweak to the sh404sef setup process. Not so fast! .... And specifically I'd like to learn how sh404sef works with K2. Best practices... developing an SEO strategy - not that I need all that covered here, but I do need an outline, please. PLEASE! Somebody help me understand.

                                      • Do Joomla updates replace your custom work?

                                        If you use one of the standard templates that ships with Joomla, then any changes you've made will get replaced when Joomla updates. Here's how to avoid the problem.

                                        • Best practice regarding speeding up load time

                                          I primarily use premade templates from Joomlart and I have to admit that I do get excessive code which gives me long load times. I would like to be able to trim the code better.
