Improve Joomla! 2.5 article manager

Save yourself a lot of time by greatly improving the Joomla! 2.5 article manager in under 10 minutes! According to research, you will become more productive with a larger computer screen. I'm pretty sure this will also apply to the Joomla! WYSIWYG editor.

With this simple and free change you can increase the "port" of the editor to almost 4.5 times it normal size. Best of all: this is not a Joomla! core hack, it's just a template override! Screenshots available.

Dutch Joomla!Days 2013

The dates for the Dutch Joomla! Days 2013 are announced! The Dutch community will meet again on the weekend of 20 & 21 April 2013. As a Dutch company we are really happy with this news and are looking forward to being part of the event once again.  The conference is always professionally organised and well worth the investment for Joomla! enthusiasts and professionals.

The presentations by Dutch and international speakers are always very good and you will surely learn new things. I'm pretty sure Joomla 3.0 (probably 3.1 by then) will also get a lot of attention. Also, do not underestimate the value of meeting other Joomla professionals and enthusiasts face to face.
