Awesomeness of Joomla 3.3 And Our Plan

Awesomeness of  Joomla 3.3 And Our Plan

Joomla! 3.3 is going to be released in this month having many of outstanding feature and The Production Leadership Team (PLT) is claiming Joomla 3.3 will be the most stable joomla platform ever! This version aims to “Do more with Joomla” especially with improvements in terms of Security, Conflict reduction, Cloud storage API support, semantic microdata and so on.

In Themexpert HQ, we have already formulated our plan to welcome Joomla 3.3. Have a glance on the plan, we are going to adopt:

Our Plans

ThemeXpert Template

Because of radical changes in Joomla 3.3 we are preparing our guts for the official release. Our developer team are in hectic on updating Expose Framework and Quickstart Pack. All our Expose4 based template compatible with Joomla 3.3 and we are actively testing everything so it ain’t break anything.

ThemeXpert Extension

All our extension in extension directory like Xpert Contents, Xpert Slider, Xpert Tabs use jQuery library, that means they are already ready to be compatible with Joomla 3.3. You can expect that our extensions are ready to cope up with Joomla 3.3 release. Expose framework for 3.3 In expose we have to maintain a lot of core extension override. J3.3 going to add microdata for its core element it require a major rework on our framework override. We will maintain a new branch on framework repo for j3.3 and onward. We’ll still maintain the Expose 4 branch but will not add any new feature in it, it will only receive bug fixes.

Quickstart pack

From Joomla 3.3 release we’ll only provide our template quickstart with Joomla 3.3. Till now we are providing Joomla 2.5 Quickstart pack and we receive numerous request to support latest Joomla build.

Brand new features in Joomla 3.3

Security

The newness in Joomla 3.3 release is particularly focus on improving shield of security; this is why the minimum PHP requirement in Joomla 3.3 has been raised to PHP 5.3.10, which provides Two-Factor Authentication, improved Bcrypt password hashing and Remember Me area, many of critical vulnerabilities fixed. Thus Joomla security has been more powerful and strong owing to this improvement.

Fully jQuery

MooTools Javascript library has been associated with Joomla CMS since its birth. Because of technical enhancement, all back-end and front-end scripts (almost 25 script elements) will be making the jump to jQuery. The migration of script will help to lessen the size of Joomla website by loading JQuery, used by many of Joomla extensions. This migration also avoids duplication of Js libraries and resolve conflicts between MooTools and JQuery. Cloud Storage APIs The integration of Cloud Storage APIs in Joomla has opened a new door supporting for cloud storage providers such as Amazon S3, Dropbox, Google, Rackspace

SEO

Joomla! 3.3 release has added marvelous SEO capabilities to Joomla. The microdata will permit to identify the article’s author, add microdata info to breadcrumb links, get the rich snippets to bring forth your content for reviews, ratings, etc, so that Search engines can index this additional data and then provide better results for your visitors and better understand the information you provide them with.

Front-end editing

Editing front-end is pretty often task , to make changes in front-end of Joomla, developers have to jump between front-end and back-end frequently. Now in Joomla 3.3. Module editing right from front-end becomes much easier for developers without digging into the back-end. There is no need to access admin panel, this helps to save much time and easily edit stuff immediately on the front page

Important changes in our support

Important changes in our support

Our main goal of 2014 is to improve our product quality and support experience. We are striving here to provide possibly the best support but we know, we are lagging behind sometimes. To improve our support quality, we've taken some decisions which will benefit you. Before talking about upcoming changes lets see the current support workflow:

 support_channels.jpg

As you can see we are using too many channels to provide support and it's very difficult for us to focus on every channels with limited resources. So, we decided to shut down all the different channels except forum.

This decision will help us to focus only and only on forum to ensure excellent support. We are using question/answer based forum so others will be benefited from our support. You can give us your site access details through forum and it's only visible to our support team.

Forum Categorization:

We decided to use tag based forum system ended up that was a bad decision, most people love to select forum instead of adding tag. So we’ll create all different forums and move relevant topic to it.

Documentation:

We are giving our 100% effort on documentation and integrating search for documentation and forum. As you know we already hired a technical writer and he is busy creating video documentations and writings. We are hoping to launch our new integrated documentation by the end of March.

Knowledgbase:

We get you covered, we are putting together all the questions and its answer in our knowledgebase and it will be integrated with the search.

Live Chat Support:

We are trying our best to be online for live support but its limited to only non-technical support. We are hiring more support people and once we hired and trained them we'll add them for your support. 

You can still reach us through our contact form and ask question on our forum.

Last but not least, we always welcome your suggestion. If you have anything in mind please let us know.

It’s time to clean up our legacy

Our goal at ThemeXpert, this year, is to craft and shape our templates with modernized, updated and trendy technologies. Modernistic technologies are entire outcome of previous experience, research and future-proof solution.To follow this strategy, our whole development processes are under this pace. Our motto is to provide not only enlightened templates, technical support as well.

Our paramount endeavor is to focus on enhancing our services. So, we resolve to discontinue following and providing support from help desk for the templates released in 2010. Because those templates and supported technologies have been outdated, even their updated versions are no longer available or released.
