  1. New Feature: OSDownloads Pro Has Custom Forms

    Over the last couple of months we've been working really hard on improvements to OSDownloads.

    OSDownloads is the easiest way to add downloads to Joomla, and it makes it simple to collect an email address in exchange for downloads.

    What are the new features in OSDownloads?

    We've added email notifications for downloads, improved the URL structure, and enabled custom fields for download files. Starting today, you can also use custom fields for user submissions, so you can collect more information from visitors who download files.

  2. What K2 Sub-Templates Are and How To Create Them

    One of our Spanish-speaking customers needed to hide the hour and minutes displayed by K2 items.

    By default, Joomla content doesn't display the time. So the customer wanted their K2 dates to match the normal Joomla articles on their site.

    In this tutorial, you will learn to use a language override to achieve this.

  5. js 2017 review

    Happy New Year, everyone.

    Our team took over Joomlashack 18 months ago.

    Ever since the takeover, people have been asking me questions like these:

    • "Is it worth building a Joomla business?"
    • "Do people still use Joomla?"
    • "Is anyone creating cool things for Joomla users?"

    My answers are always an emphatic "Yes".

    In this review, I'll explain why we're really confident for Joomla and Joomlashack in 2018.

    Let's first see what happened in 2017, and then we'll see the plans for 2018.
