September Workshop

North York Civic Centre
Committee Room #4
Tuesday, September 29, 2015
7:00PM to 9:00PM

Free, Permanent Joomla! Hosted Websites
& Sheldon's Tips and Tricks

September will see us back at the North York Civic Centre, where we'll be looking at what you get with, what you don't get with, and how do you get, the new free permanent hosted Joomla! websites at Joomla.com.  Doug Pickett will be presenting this, so if you're a Joomla! beginner and want to experiment, or just want a personal web site, or for whatever reason, he'll give you the "How To" on this great option that Open Source Matters has arranged for Joomla! users everywhere.

Sheldon Seale will give one of his insightful presentations on Tips and Tricks to make your web sites even better.  He's going to talk about adjusting the Protostar template to make it fill up more of the screen by adjusting the 960 pixel width model that it uses.  The 960 pixel limit was a good compromise when your CRT screen was 1024x768 pixels, but can leave an empty wasteland at the side of your screen with a wide-format layout.  Sheldon will show you how to make use of that available space.

November 2016 Workshop

November Workshop

North York Civic Centre
Committee Room #4
Tuesday, November 23, 2016
7:00PM to 9:00PM

Digital Certificates, Joomla! Security Tools,
& Sheldon's Tips and Tricks

We're going to be talking about security related issues this time.

Google is now talking about downgrading sites in searches if they aren't using https. So, you'll want to start using certificates. You can switch your Joomla! site over to https with one setting, but you need a valid certificate to avoid getting error messages.

We'll look at Let's Encrypt, one of the widely available free SSL certificate sources. What can it do for you, what won't it, and how to get one and install it?

We'll also look at Akeeba Admin Tools - how it can help protect your Joomla! sites, and some configuration tips.

Once again we'll finish up with Sheldon giving some valuable insights - this time on the hows and whys of putting in background images on your pages.
