Today, on the 1st of September 5 years ago Joomla was unveiled to the world for the first time. Its time for celebrations for the Joomla community world wide which is one of the most diverse communities in the Open Source world. With the least entry barriers , here anyone can come in & take leadership & make change happen. It is this marvelous community of users, developers, designers, documentation creators , bug reporters & fixers, evangelists & every single person that has touched & been touched by this piece of software.

Joomla has come a long long way since that 5 years ago. Today it feeds many mouths in more ways than one & i am sure that all together, the jobs it has created can compete with any of the top fortune 500 companies in the world. It runs close to 2.5% of the sites on the web today. It is used by organizations as large as Apple, McDonald’s and the United Nations and by millions of people for their companies, hobbies and charities.

Today as we look back, we are hit with a wave of today, we'll tell you our Joomla Story.

In the past few months, there have been some major announcements that have rocked the world of Social Networks. NING's announcement of phasing out free Social Networks have got many network admins worrying about what to do next. With the only way out being to pay to upgrade to NING's premium plans , admins have no other option than migrating to either a different system or a platform of their own.

Other SAAS options include KickApps , SocialGO which include a free solution besides their premium services. The other alternative that some might prefer would be to move to your own platform. If you are looking at going this route there are solutions like Elgg, BuddyPress , JomSocial available.

With JomSocial going GPL this month, it looks like a really promising alternative.

This blog will talk mainly about migrating from Ning to JomSocial & the options you have for the features that Ning has in this approach.

NING / CB to JomSocial Migration Service

With JomSocial going GPL, we have been getting a large number of requests for converting CB & NING based Social Networks to JomSocial. So much so that we even released a few migration extensions for CB. These plugins make it easier to move some of the CB data to JomSocial.

We are now offering a migration service  for people who want to move from NING or CB to JomSocial.

With JomSocial going GPL it's the best time to move ! Interested ? Send us an inquiry & we'll get back to you with an estimate.

Go Ahead, use your Creativity& Innovate ! looking at some extensions, i realized that a whole lot of Joomla extensions use a lot of custom js to add validations to their forms. While this might be needed in some cases, 90% of the times you should be able to use the inbuilt Joomla validation available via the mootools validate.js . Working using in built Joomla functions will help keep you code free from excessive external js & reduce the bloat. A lot of times it will also help reduce JS conflicts.

Ironically i was prompted to write this blog post when we discovered one of our old extensions having this very issue ! While making the corrections i thought a small blog about using native Joomla validation might be helpful to a lot of devs.

So here is how you go about adding Joomla form validation...
