In 2017, we are going to reboot JoomlaXTC with changes we feel are necessary to better serve the current Web Developer market and Joomla user base by introducing easier ways to get quality templates and extensions which are not only pretty and simple to use, but powerful enough for custom and complex, high-profile projects.
One of the most anticipated features for Joomla is confirmed for the upcoming Joomla 3.7 release. For the past year we have been waiting for several new features to be added to Joomla, and now we have confirmation that Joomla 3.7 will feature custom fields.
In the past few years, JoomlaXTC has been a big supporter of Joomla! Events, from the Joomla World Conference to JoomlaDay's, JoomlaXTC has sponsored and has been involved. The 2016 Joomla World Conference is no different, and we want to see you there!
GIF formatted images have made a huge come back in 2016. The current GIF revolution has been highly focused on social media, but GIF's are finding their way back to websites. In the late 90's and early 2000's clipart based GIF's were all the rage, but now GIF's are making their way into the future.
In the past year there have been countless articles predicting the fall of Joomla!. These blog posts have focused on the market share Joomla! has lost over the past five years to WordPress. As with anything you read on the internet, you need to do some fact checking to get to the truth.
We are always thinking of ways to make our products better, take our templates for example. The XTC framework is such a flexible platform it allows us to improve with each template. Lately, we have optimized the CSS, reduced load times, added friendly controls, new features and removed legacy code.
