Enhanced User Profiles with Joomla

Written by Brian Teeman
Don’t use a hammer

One of the complaints I’ve seen often about Joomla is that the registration process on your site doesn’t gather enough data. As supplied it’s restricted to asking for just the name and email address which for many people is just not enough.

As a result people have resorted to installing something like Community Builder just for the enhanced registration form without using any of the additional “social” features that Community Builder offers. (more…)

At that time, and until the sixteenth century, the civil calendar in use the world over was the Julian calendar, introduced by Julius Caesar in the year 46 B.C. This calendar considered the year to be 365.25 days 4 and thus had a leap year every four years, just like the Coptic calendar.
