HOW TO: Pimp the Joomla! login module

Pimped Joomla! login module This article explains how to add some functionality to the standard Joomla! login module using an HTML override. The example below is taken from my website running on Joomla! 2.5.

Recently I changed the template of my website. Instead of getting one from a template club I decided to create a template from scratch using the Bootstrap Framework which is used by Joomla! 3.x. An excellent start for this new template gave me the Blank Template and Twitter Bootstrap Tutorial for Joomla! from Alexander Schmidt.

After the template was finished (so far) I found that the standard Joomla! login module looked a bit boring an could need some more functionality. The plan was to give my users access to often needed functions like "Private Messages" and the "Forum User Profile". I'm getting a lot of questions about how I created that "pimped" module so here is a howto.

Joomla!Day China 2012 in Shanghai

Joomla!Day China 2012 in Shanghai The first ever Joomla!Day in China took place at the German Centre in Shanghai on June 2nd 2012. Berry Yang and her team managed to create a very well organized Joomla!Day in one of the most amazing cities I ever visited.

The venue was just perfect for the around 80-90 attendees. All people I talked with (and that where a lot) where very interested in Joomla! and where also very interested about any kind of cooperation. I came home with a lot of business cards.

Presenters at the Joomla!Day China 2012 in Shanghai where Andrew Eddie, Derek Joe, Hagen Graf, Luffy Xiao and Achim Fischer.

Comments for Joomla! articles in Discussions [Preview]

Comments for Joomla! articles in Discussions The next version of Discussions will introduce comments for Joomla! articles. Since I migrated to Joomla! 2.5 I missed the comments feature for my articles. The comment extension I used on J1.5 was not available for J2.5 so I had to come up with another solution. Well, I already have a forum extension in my portfolio and I thought a comment feature would fit quite nice into it. So here is the preview of the upcoming Discussions Comments for Joomla! articles.
