Become Mobile Joomla! 2.0 Beta Tester!

Hey folks! We've been a bit quiet for a while, but now it's time to open up more about what we've been up to: Mobile Joomla! 2.0!

We're preparing to roll the update out during fall/winter 2014. Some of the most interesting features of Mobile Joomla 2.0 include:

  1. Improved image resizing to boost page load performance
  2. Better performance via page minification
  3. Ability to remove parts of page sources on mobile (or desktop, for that matter) using "ress-media" attribute
  4. IE conditional comments removal on non-IE browsers
  5. Improved the gzip compression
  6. Better performance by Javascript combination and minification
  7. Faster loading pages by CSS combination and minification
  8. Improved performance by removing unnecessary browser-specific CSS properties (apart from the visitor's browser)
  9. CSS rule split via media queries and loading the required files only
  10. Extended lazy loading of images and videos
  11. Automatic responsive script loading (like FastClick, FitVids, Add to Home, etc.) and viewport tag

We're now looking for Alpha/Beta testers to help us to spot and iron out any issues in the new release during the next few weeks, and smooth out the install process for everybody.

To be among the first to try out the new features and to join the tester ranks, please fill in your details in the Beta Tester signup form. You will then get email from us in a few weeks with more details.

Thank you!

New support ad types for better support

Maintaining an open source product is not easy, it requires lots of time and resources not only to develop, but also to support. Lately, we’ve been feeling that it’d be great to have more people on board to help you on the public support forums. Since we are running on a tight budget, we started to brainstorm how we could make that happen. Raising our premium product prices or compromising quality would not be an option, so we thought that testing a new type of mobile ads within the Mobile Joomla! Community version would be the most reasonable way to go.

It’s important for us that those ads to be as unobtrusive as possible. The current ad type we are testing display a pop-up notification to the mobile visitor on iPhone or Android phone, if/when a visitor has scrolled down to the bottom of a page, i.e. already consumed the content of the page. We would like to keep these ads as discreet as possible, and therefore if the user closes/skips the ad, it will only reappear to that user after at least 48 hours. If closed again, the ad won't show until at least one week. After that, it's hidden for a minimum of one month.

So far we've gotten some feedback and understood that there are certain types of websites, like those of educational organizations, for which these kinds of ads are somewhat poor fit and which don't have enough budget even for Mobile Joomla! Basic, our completely ad-free version. Therefore, we are happy to offer our Community users a way to opt out of these new ads, simply by sending an email to us with the subject "Ads opt-out" to .

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments on this, we’ll be happy to hear from you.

Welcoming Lazy Load XT for jQuery: Lazy Load Images, Videos and Other Media

We have released Lazy Load XT, a new jQuery plugin for lazy loading of images, videos and other media elements to the jQuery community out there.

Lazy Load XT for jQuery - mobile Youtube videos

Previously this plugin was included in our Flat and Elegance templates. Lazy Load XT is able to significantly speed up loading of image and/or video-heavy webpages.

Since this plugin is not Joomla! dependent we decided to make it available as a separate project. You can have a look at the Lazy Load XT demo page where you can see this plugin at work and test it in different browsers. All feedback is welcome!

Usage is rather simple: just load jQuery and Lazy Load XT javascript files and rename "src" attribute to "data-src" in your <img> tags. We've designed the tool to suit most use cases without any extra configuration. Additional ways to extend the plugin are described in documentation.

This plugin is part of the CMS-independent RESS.io project devoted to advance combined client-side and server-side responsive web design. Stay tuned, as we are going to release more improved responsive web design techniques! Naturally all our Mobile Joomla! users benefit from the new development and techniques as well!
