Joomla 2.5 News

Joomla 2.5 replaced Joomla 1.5 in April 2012

There are some existing news coming from Joomla 2.5. We have used the new system and came up with some interesting information about the new and popular Joomla CMS.

Joomla 2.5 is even easier to update than ever. There is also a smart search function. It’s smarter, easier to use and more secure. Let’s take a look at new features one by one:

1. Easy to update

The easy update function is a quick button on the administrative control panel of your Joomla 2.5 website.

It enables you to update your website to the latest stable Joomla release with a single click. A second quick button manages Joomla extensions. This auto-updating feature eliminates the need to manually transfer and replace files on the server.

This turns the very time consuming error prone task of updating into a quick, time saving experience.

Note that some custom made functionalities still require close attention when updating your Joomla core version. Joomla updates might affect customisation functionality. We strongly advise consulting a Joomla web developer before updating.

2. Smart search

The Joomla 2.5 search function is a faster and user-friendly experience. It features a natural language search with auto-completion and stemming, which allows the user to find relevant content by typing in the first few letters of a word. The joomla 2.5 component and plugins set provides you with one-click automated indexing of all content.

3. Benefits of using Joomla 2.5 for web developers

  • Quality CMS for web developers to work with
  • Joomla 2.5 is safer with higher security
  • The options for customisation are advanced
  • Lots of reliable plugins and extensions available

4. Benefits of using Joomla for non-developers

  • It’s even easier to update your content – images and text
  • Someone with absolutely no programming skills can learn to do it with a one lesson session (vary depending on the person computer skills).
  • It can be easily upgraded, so that your system will always be updated with the latest technology.
