Still Using Joomla 2.5? It’s Time for You to Fly

If your website still lives on Joomla 2.5, it’s time to migrate — or make the move — to the latest version of Joomla 3.

Migrating your Joomla site is very different from updating it — it’s like moving to a new home.

Think of the moving process: Going through your belongings and getting rid of what you no longer want or need.  Packing up what you want and making the move. Once you unpack, you may discover you have new wants or needs that you didn’t have in your old house – so you bring in new items and make needed fixes to make your house work for you.

Custom Template for Multilingual Joomla Site

A little over four years ago 4Web had the pleasure of working with Somuga, an animation company in Basque Country in northern Spain, to create the multilingual Howoldies website. We were thrilled when they contacted us to develop a second children’s site, The Giftbringers. This new site needed to be multilingual, responsive, provide special interactive activities for registered users, AND work with the beautiful, graphic-intensive design Somuga provided to us.
