This year has been slightly more quiet for JoomJunk as lots of our products became more stable and needed less regular bug fixes. However behind the scenes things have been as busy as ever:

  • We have a new shoutbox release planned early in the new year that will introduce AJAX functionality that has long been asked for (you can see the latest in progress code at
  • We have released the Social Slider Pro module with extra functionality to help us pay for the costs of the server we host JoomJunk on.
  • We have rebuilt our frontend template and are working on a new responsive forum template for the site which we hope will be out in February/March.
  • Released a variety of bug fixes and feature improvements for our extensions over the year.

As is usual over the Christmas and new year period the forum will be closed and emails will not be replied to between December 24th and January 2nd.

Wishing all of you a very Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year!

George and Charlie.

We're pleased to announce 1.4.2 of the shoutbox is released fixing a bug reported by several users with the date of displayed post when users have different time zones set to the Joomla default!

Thanks for supporting the issues and please keep referring any further issues to the JoomJunk team via email or forum!

We're proud to announce after a lot of time and effort our new website! It's more up to date, faster and fully responsive. We've completely revamped everything on our site, basically started from scratch and built our own new template based on the UIKit. Every module and component you see on here has been fully customized to fit it perfectly with our design, including the forum.

With the release of our new site now complete we have much more time to focus on updating our extensions. This said, there will however be some minor tweaks that will need making to the site.

The Social Slider Pro module is coming along nicely with some cool new features and optimization, making it much easier to customize.

We're proud to release version 1.4.0 of the Social Slider.

We have finally added the new feature that has been requested by a lot of users - changing the ordering of the slides. This can now be achieved in the Other Setting tab when editing the module. The ordering uses a jQuery plugin allowing you to easily maneuver each one. A lot of coding improvements have also been made, primarily where there slides are displayed.
