Don't like the way Joomla! displays information to your web site visitors?

One of the most powerful features of Joomla!, is the ability of templates to override the HTML being sent to the user.

Come down to Free Geek for our quarterly meeting and we'll show you how to customize Joomla! content articles and contacts.

Wait...quarterly?  That's right.  We will now be holding meetings on a quarterly basis so come out to see what's going on with Joomla! until later this summer. See you there.

Happy Spring, everyone! (Is it officially Spring yet? It feels like it, ay any rate.) Hey, Joomla! 3 has been out for a while now. How many sites do you all have in production using it? Anyone?

In fact, Ben Sandberg will talk briefly during the next meeting (Thursday @ FreeGeek!) about the Joomla! release cycle. Pay attention, folks... J3.5 is coming fast!
