Venue Management

Earlier, we used google maps for offline events. However, we have a plan to introduce sub venues in future. For instance, if there is a large campus and the Event is been conducted in Room1 and other event in Room2. To keep this simple we need Venue Management.

Quix- Page Builder for Joomla!

Quix- Page Builder for Joomla!

Joomla is one of the most powerful CMS on earth. As uncle Ben said ‘With great powers, comes great responsibility’. Despite Joomla’s power, its has one big drawback: building beautiful pages is cumbersome and complicated process.

A good looking page contains : components, modules and your modules should be rightly assigned to menu, etc.. As your site grows, it seems impossible to maintain and improve. If you want to change your template, it requires more amount of work because each template has different module positions and naming conventions.

Thanks to our friends at ThemeXpert for building Quix, a revolutionary page builder for Joomla. Page building in Joomla has never been easier before. Quix comes with advanced drag and drop layout builder, responsive controls, powerful collection system and much more.

Sneak Peek- JoomlArt’s new Free Joomla template JA Simpli

Sneak Peek- JoomlArt’s new Free Joomla template JA Simpli

A new idea which poped out of a general discussion between some innovative and geeky minds from Techjoomla, JoomlaShine, JoomlArt, Stackideas, Joomlatools and JoomlaCorner of developing a template which would be simple, light weight and one of a kind. Our friends at JoomlArt made sure that this idea turned into a reality which gave birth to JA- Simpli.

What's so special about JA- Simpli?

Well, you can say that this is the template which was missing in Joomla 3 or maybe the unofficial Joomla template because this template does not use any framework. Yeah, you read it right it does not have any framework and uses Joomla default template structure with integrated bootstrap and a template customizer. The template is fully responsive, has multiple ready to use layouts and plenty more...

 

Well, we liked it so much and we appreciated their effort by giving a testimonial. The creation of this template in a time where templates without any special 'frameworks' are not thought of anymore, this has proven that there is plenty of room to innovate.

Shika 1.0 has landed

Its February 22nd 2016. Just over 4 years when we first flirted with the idea of creating a learning management system. May 2014 saw Shika enter Techjoomla Labs. 21 months , 8000+ hours of development time and 350,000 + lines of code later, we are proud, (albeit exhausted and excited at the same time !) to present to you Shika 1.0.

Since its announcement, Shika has caused a lot of excitement in the Joomla community and all your love and feedback is what has powered and inspired us and will continue to do so. It’s been an amazing journey so far a lot of it documented via our blog.

A lot of love, feedback and code has gone into making this first cut of our dream come true. Here’s a quick look at what we have to offer.
