Joomla 3.1 is just around the corner; and one of the most exciting proposed features for it is Tags.

The Tags feature is still currently under review. If Tags are included, it would likely be the "poster-child" for the Joomla 3.1 release.

One of the best features about the Tags component is that it allows other extensions to connect to its API and use the tags. Eextension developers can implement tagging into their component and interact with other tags easily.

In the following screenshots, I'll take you through the Tags component, its menu items, and extensions, as well as highlight some of its coolest features along the way.

How to Upload Large Joomla Extensions

Uploading large extensions can be a tricky business.

Because some extensions contain a large number of files, it's often hard to install them via the Joomla administrator area. This because hosting companies often put strict limits on the amout of resources you can use on your server, and uploading large files can take a lot of resources.. When you try to upload these large extensions you may end up with timeouts or error messages.

In this tutorial we're going to show you two ways to upload large extensions. One of these techniques will also allow you to install dozens of extensions at once.

Finally, at the end of the tutorial, we'll show you a technique that (to our knowledge) has never been documented in Joomla before.

Dear Sean, When I looked for Joomla! training it came after going through a number of different good and bad opinions about what Joomla! is. I decided to learn Joomla! finally as a easy way out of the stress of web development through programming html code. Now that I have done the training with you, I feel like a door has opened to an enormous banquet hall of opportunities that look as exciting as they are to use and delivering that satisfaction to clients looking for a good working site is achievable.
