The joom.la url shortener was changed recently to a YOURLS setup which gives Joomla! a wider customisation possibility. The Team has exported all former short URLs to our knowledge, however we may have missed some.

Call for UX Team Volunteers

17 July, 2015 - 15:27

Over the past 10 years, Joomla! has evolved naturally as a solution with guidance from the many wonderful volunteers and contributors. While this has worked for us so far, in order for us to remain relevant we need to start looking outside of our volunteer groups for direction. Namely, we need to start thinking about our end users - their needs, wants, and how they actually use the CMS in their day to day.

To kick off this process, we are rebooting the currently inactive Joomla! UX Team. This team is underneath the Production Leadership Team, and our first project will have major influence in how Joomla! 4 looks and functions from an end-user standpoint.

To make this happen, we need volunteers! Particularly those who have experience in one or more of the following:

  • Enterprise UX (this is a big one!)
  • User research & user testing
  • UX Strategy
  • UI Design
  • International accessibility standards

 

If you have experience in those areas, please send an email to crystal.harris@community.joomla.org detailing how you'd like to get involved and how you can help.
