Sure thing, your host does keep backups. Usually, they are kept on a spare disk on the same physical server hosting your site. If you have a top-notch hosting provider, they may also keep separate backups on a network attached storage (NAS) device. But this is not a fail-safe approach. What about if the server machine goes does or gets accidentally seized by the FBI? What if the host goes out of business? What if the host gets hacked and your sites disappears? If you think that these scenarios are far-fetched, ask the owners of the sites affected by these real world cases. They thought the host-provided backups were enough. Newsflash: they weren’t.
So to prove that Joomla templates aren't exactly in the same category as nuclear fission, let's build the world's most basic Joomla template. If you're thinking that this isn't at all possible in a somewhat short, friendly newsletter, you'll be surprised.
Please note that these instructions are for Joomla version 1.7, and that other versions will have slight differences, but that the concepts are the same.
The soon to be released Joomla 1.7 update will bring with it quite a few new features, including the ability for most users to benefit from a much easier upgrade process with 'once click updates', security enhancements, batch processing of articles, and more.
Being one of the most popular content management systems in the world, Joomla is used by more than 30 million website owners. What makes Joomla so popular is its features for communities. If you are such website owner, you should consider making your website more attractive for search engines.
Although, there are many extensions for search engine optimization, I just want to share the best among those I had tried and some helpful information about them. In this way, I hope to save you some time and help with the overall process.
To use some of the Facebook extensions you need to create a Facebook Application and get an Application ID, Secret Key or API Key.
First of all you need to be logged into Facebook to create an Application. If you don't have a Facebook account you can create one for free at www.facebook.com.
When you are logged into Faceboo, go to Developer Dashboard.
Click on the + Set Up New Application button (at the top right of the page)
