On May 25, 2018 a new European Union regulation called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect and affect every person or business that collects the personal information of consumers in the European Union (EU).
This legislation affects virtually every country in the world where an EU consumer can become a customer, user, or provide their personal information. This means it includes you and your business if you do business with anyone from the EU -- even if they're only visiting your website.
The Joomla Community Showcase is a collection of sites that show off the power and beauty of Joomla. We’re proud to announce that our work on the Michael Phelps – MP brand website is included in this showcase.
The website features all the MP brand swimwear, goggles and training accessories and provides a way for customers to learn about, buy products or locate stores where they can purchase in person.
Google Doesn't Care How You Build Your Website
How your website ranks on search engines is important to your business, but the specific details about how this happens is a trade secret of search engine companies (Google, Bing). Not unlike other ideas and concepts that people don't really understand, there are excessive amounts misinformation and myths about search engine optimization (ranking higher on search engines) floating around. Unfortunately, many of these myths get passed around as true.
Thanks for a great 2015 from your friends at CreativeSights

In its third year, the Joomla! World Conference returns to bring together the worldwide Joomla! Community for three days of learning, connecting, and sharing.
This year on November 7-9 at the Grand Oasis Cancun in Cancun, Mexico the brightest Joomla! minds come together to share their experiences, connect with others, and learn more about Joomla! and its community.
While we prefer custom designs, here are some excellent options for those looking to save money.
When someone says a site "looks like a Joomla!™ site", we cringe. Joomla!™ has a huge advantage over the other CMS platforms with the easy and functional nature of its template system, so with a little bit of work, a Joomla!™ site can look like anything.
Even for the less skilled or basic users, there are hundreds of companies in the market right now who are producing templates (and template frameworks) for Joomla!™
Additionally, some of these companies offer clubs - meaning that instead of buying one template on an as needed basis, there's an option to buy a subscription or "join the club". Membership in the template club usually provides unlimited access to support and downloads for every template the club offers.
Here are some of the better ones:
