Two years ago I wrote about combining Joomla 1.0 and 1.5 extensions into a single installation package. This allowed developers to distribute only a single installation file of their extension which could be used on both Joomla versions. In the same time it was easier for users as well since they avoided dealing with different installation files for different Joomla versions. Now we reveal how you can add a version for Joomla 1.6 or 1.7 to the same package and create a single installation file of your extension for all Joomla versions!
Some of the AJAX Scroller users might have noticed problems with recently released Internet Explorer 9. The issue is manifested in AJAX Scroller not working in IE9 for Joomla 1.5 sites with activated Mootools upgrade plugin. Read on to see how to fix this.
Exclusively for Bosnian Joomla Community I created a module for checking domain availability. It is used primarily for .ba (Bosnia) TLD but can also be used to check for other TLDs, like .com, .org, .net etc. The module uses AJAX to check for domain availability without page refresh and contains some nice graphics, read on for more screenshots.
Today I received an interesting question: "Is there a way to add multiple RSS feeds to run simultaneously in AJAX Scroller?". We know that there is only one single field for entering URL of the feed to be fetched and displayed by AJAX Scroller. So how do we add several different RSS feeds and combine them together in the output? Simple: we use an online feed aggregate tool!
Recently I developed a financial chart integration in Joomla for Algo Futures. The charts, called WOW Indices, represent a market's Order Flow Momentum as determined by Algo Future's proprietary set of algorithms. WOW Index (Weiss Order Weighted Index) is a Weighted Index that is built from information derived from each and every Order within a particular market. Available markets are SP 500, Dow 30, STOXX 50 and Crude Oil electronic futures markets. It is a free and handy tool that allows traders to trade with the institutional, hedge fund, and prop order flow that drives changes in price.
