It's Church Without All The Additives

E-mail Print PDF
A network of organic church communities dedicated to finding out what our Lord and Savior is doing  and then joining Him on the quest.

The organic church is an attempt to do just that. It's based in the belief that living things grow naturally. Its based in the conviction that "kingdom" things are organic things -- they start small and eventually reproduce. Organic church planters don't think about planting a church. They think more like the Apostle Paul - about churching a region. While churches following organic principles often meet in homes, they are not - by definition - about a building, whether the building has a steeple on the roof…or a chimney.

The organic church is as old as the early church meeting from house to house. But for many of us it's a new thing. These days we are seeing global shifts of massive proportions and it has become very appropriate to get back to our roots as believers. Missionaries and martyrs have shown us the way in China and India, for example. But it can happen, it should happen, here in North America - and beyond - for the glory of God and the gladness of all peoples!

We are Volunteers

E-mail Print PDF

The Joomla! Core Team consists of volunteer developers, designers, administrators and managers who, together with a large range of Work Groups of dedicated community members have taken Joomla! to new heights in its relatively short life. This well-oiled machine is often copied but never surpassed. Joomla! has some wonderfully talented people taking Open Source concepts to the forefront of industry standards. Joomla! 1.5 is a major leap forward and represents the most exciting Joomla! release in the history of the project.

Stick to the Code!

E-mail Print PDF
To ensure this code release, Wilco Jansen resorted to sending rum to joint lead-developer Johan Janssens. Johan, who's had a penchant for rum ever since the first "Pirate's of the Caribbean" movie screened, took the bait, mixed it with Cola, and here we are with our latest 1.5 release. It looks like pirate talk will figure quite a lot in future Joomla! development!

What is the FTP layer for?

E-mail Print PDF

The FTP Layer allows file operations (such as installing Extensions or updating the main configuration file) without having to make all the folders and files writable. This has been an issue on Linux and other Unix based platforms in respect of file permissions. This makes the site admin's life a lot easier and increases security of the site.

You can check the write status of relevent folders by going to ''Help->System Info" and then in the sub-menu to "Directory Permissions". With the FTP Layer enabled even if all directories are red, Joomla! will operate smoothly.

NOTE: the FTP layer is not required on a Windows host/server.

Only one edit window! How do I create "Read more..."?

E-mail Print PDF

This is now implemented by inserting a Read more... tag (the button is located below the editor area) a dotted line appears in the edited text showing the split location for the Read more.... A new Plugin takes care of the rest.

It is worth mentioning that this does not have a negative effect on migrated data from older sites. The new implementation is fully backward compatible.
