Joomla has tried to create a content manager / CCK for several years now. Though the project has been inactive, there are a few database tables that Joomla still uses, mainly for storing content history. Although the original UCM in its spirit isn’t part of Joomla, similar functionality has been introduced by article fields.
So, with com_content already there what purpose does a new UCM extension serve you'll ask? A UCM gives the flexibility of defining multiple "types" of content. This is very useful so you could create types like Films, Actors, Banners all on the same site. Each type has its own fields, and a list of records from each type can be fetched. You could even relate these items together to build an IMDb clone!
Among the different online content management platforms available, Joomla is preferred for its flexibility and improved security. Yet, this doesn’t stop hackers from prying into your site's vulnerabilities to exploit them. Regardless of the type of website and security level, websites are always susceptible to being hacked. Most times this is due to the use of vulnerable 3rd party extensions.
Joomla is developed by expert developers and has a strong security model to combat vulnerabilities in web applications. Security holes being introduced in the web applications are mostly the consequences of poorly coded extensions that don’t implement the Joomla security model. That is why it is quite critical to choose an extension from a reputed provider. In this post, we'll cover the most common types of vulnerabilities, and how they can be prevented when creating custom Joomla extensions.

I recently happened to have a client approach us to build a mobile app. What should have been a fairly quick job turned out into a mid sized development project. The reason ? They had created almost half a dozen custom components where articles could have served the purpose.

Over the years we have received numerous requests to create a 'real manager’ or a way to edit system email notifications. We decided to go one step further. Enter TJ Notifications, our next 'horizontal’ or 'infrastructure’ extension.
This extension will eventually allow all our products and any other products who integrate it to centrally manage all notifications in your Joomla site. While we will start with emails, eventually we shall be adding support for SMS/Text notifications, Web Push (browser notifications) as well as native site notifications.
