The Joomla! Project proudly announces the August 2010 Issue of the Joomla! Community Magazine. The magazine is a collection of articles and illustrations highlighting events and accomplishments of the free software community behind Joomla!, an award-winning open source content management system.
Administrators, Developers and Designers
The Administrators Toolkit article, The prefix has nothing to do with telephony , includes a free program to enhance site security. In the Developers Workbench , instructions to synchronize a Joomla! website with MAMP and Dropbox and advice on creating end-user documentation is shared. The Joomla! Setup focuses this month on developer and designer Fotis Evangelou.
The Designers Studio calls for participants to Redesign Joomla! for version 1.7. The Administrator interface, largely unchanged since Mambo, is in need of renovation, a task that will require the diverse talents of the Joomla! community. This month's Website Case Study looks at the team, the planning, and extension choices behind the new Scottoiler Joomla! website .
Extensions and Evaluations

Template Frameworks and Toolsets. Podcast interviews and comparative analysis of three leading template providers: JoomlArt, JoomlaPraise, and ProThemer are available, along with advice on how to select templates, improve site search engine optimization >and additional learning resources .

After many months of hard work by a very dedicated group of volunteers, today we proudly announce that the new Joomla! Community Magazine has launched! You can get to the JCM by clicking on the new Magazine link in the horizontal navigation for the Joomla! community site, or by going directly to http://magazine.joomla.org.
In each monthly JCM issue you will find stories that will educate, inform, challenge, and inspire you. And because we encourage community members to submit articles to the JCM, we also hope you will think about what makes Joomla! special to you, and then come back here to share your story with the rest of the community. And that is really what the JCM is all about: Helping members of the Joomla! community connect with each other and share their stories. We would love to publish yours!
