Joomla! invoice extension

We have recently released ccInvoices 1.9 with a lot of code improvements and finally: update notifications and one-click "live update" functionality. Read on for screenshots and more information! 

Most of our time went into reviewing and updating our code to the latest web development standards. This is an ongoing task. You won't "see" these changes in the extension output itself, but you should feel them due to the increased stability of ccInvoices and the speed in which we add new features in the future. Part of the code improvements was the continuing conversion of ccInvoices into a user interface based on Bootstrap, just like Joomla! 3.

Book about Virtuemart 2This week I got the chance to have a look at a new book about Virtuemart 2, called "Building E-commerce Sites with VirtueMart Cookbook". I was not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised! The book actually explains everything in a way that is easy to understand even for less experienced users. 

I liked the fact that the book is not limited to just a boring overview of Virtuemart with the technical facts, but included explanations about SEO (search engine optimization), analytics (with Piwik) and template frameworks (Gantry and Warp). It even has a chapter about Virtuemart alternatives like HikaShop

It's vital that you keep up with the latest trends in order to ensure people are being reached and informed.  As the internet evolves, so should your internet marketing techniques.  A Joomla! newsletter system is an excellent way to communicate with people in a hassle free way for them and you.  A newsletter provides so many advantages that to be without one means you are leaving a lot of people in the dark.
