    In the August Session we discussed the future of the JoomlaChicago website (among other things).  Let's talk over a few specifics as we plan for our future site.

    Do you back up your Joomla! website?  You should.  Do you use AkeebaBackup?  We will go over how to setup and use, along with the differences between the free and paid versions.  If time permits, we will show you how to restore from a backup.  Use a different backup solution?  We'd like to hear about it.  

     

    We hope to see you this month! Register now to save your seat.

    Hablas español?  One of the greatest features offered by the Joomla content management system is its baked-in support for multilingual websites, a native capability that gives it a notable advantage over similar CMS systems such as WordPress and Drupal.  In this session, learn how to set up and configure multilingual websites using Joomla, including best practices for implementation, planning and management, presented by Joomla expert and Internet development veteran Justin Kerr.
