Learning More About Joomla! 3.4

Joomla! 3.4 has been revamped as of February 2015. There are a number of new features, some of which have been reviewed in a few videos. There is also an animated video available to watch. The level of satisfaction with this new version is quite high.

Frontend Module Tweaking

Have you been in charge of Joomla websites before? Did you take care of the content? It was very difficult to move between the admin section and the frontend section. However, that has been addressed in Joomla! 3.4. In the past, only global configuration, Template and Articles were available to tweak from the frontend. In the new version, you can also work with Modules. This means that content managers will find Joomla even better to work with!

Google reCAPTCHA

Google has changed its Recaptcha process. In the past, users had to attest to the fact that they were human by working with character recognition puzzles. The process was often a source of frustration. However, Google changed things up so that many users can show that they are human by simply checking a box. There is no puzzle involved; Google refers to it as the "no CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA." Depending on a variety of factor, Google can figure out if you are a robot or a human when you check the box. If it has trouble for some reason, you will see the regular puzzle again.

Joomla! 3.4 users added in support for Google's new Recaptcha in the 3.4 version. The plugin that was in previous versions is updated so that you can benefit from the advances in technology. It is important to note that the pixel display box, which used to be 302 x 352, is now quite a bit smaller at just 250 x 80. This is crucial because when you upgrade to Joomla! 3.4, you do not get the new plugin right away. You have to publish it instead and then go to your layout and make sure that everything looks correct. If not, you may need to alter the CSS properties to ensure that you can see everything the way that it was meant to be seen.
