To Use Automatic Registration Or Not

Allowing social network registrations on your site can be a huge boon to signing up users quickly. There's a few things you should consider while implementing the registration flow. It's extremely easy to use the "Enable Automatic Registration" setting in JFBConnect so that you have a simple, 1-click social network login process. It couldn't be simpler to let users register, have their account created, email address, avatar and profile imported quickly. So you'll probably be surprised to hear it's not the best option for all sites. Read on for the details.

The Value of a Joomla Extension

I've given presentations at more than a dozen Joomla World Conferences, Joomla Days, and Joomla User Groups meeting. Those presentations have covered JFBConnect, our social network extension for Joomla, as well as topics like 'Introduction to Joomla Development' and the generic 'Top 10 Must-Have Extensions'. We even had a chapter in the "Joomla! Development - A Beginner's Guide" book on Running a Business Around Joomla Extensions. In all presentations, regardless of topic, the same questions almost always comes up.. and usually in that order:

Why does JFBConnect cost $60?Do you have a coupon code?How can you give refunds for an open source extension?

Those are all excellent questions, and it's time to delve a little into our business model, what an extension developer does, what an end-user expects and our philosophy on coupons.

Common Joomla caching issues

Joomla's caching system can be a huge benefit to your site, but can also cause a lot of headaches. The advantages are obvious: an overall better user experience, faster load times, less powerful server requirements and more. We're not going in-depth on the benefits here though. Let's talk about some of the pain-points that you should know about when trying to get Joomla's caching setup.

Should I Use SSL On My Site?

Should you enable SSL on your website? Yes, you should. Look at that! I just saved you the time of reading the full post. Years ago, there would have been a checklist of reasons for or against enabling SSL. Now there's no need for that list. The answer is yes and you don't even need to skip to after the fold if you don't want to. Every website should be accessible with that little 's' in https, have a green padlock and bask in the glory of some additional security. Better yet, https should be the only way to access your site.

If you do read on though, you'll get a good explanation on what SSL is for, why you should enable it and why things have changed since that non-existent post I could have made long ago.
