The main JomSocial.com website went through a successful Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5 migration a couple of weeks ago. Some questions pertaining to our blog area were raised, in particular about the component that powers our Joomla blogging system.
Well, it might be a surprise to most of you to know that the Joomla blog component is actually a standard Joomla com_content component. Yes, you heard it right, com_content and its perfectly suitable to be a good Joomla blog extension.
Joomla! is a CMS, Content Management System and within its core is a powerful yet underutilized content publishing system. This is a component that exists since the days of Mambo CMS, gradually improved upon minor iterations with each subsequent releases of Joomla 1.0, 1.5 and the rest. Joomla is pretty much a good blog software in itself.
"What sorcery is this? It doesnt look like com_content at all. This is the com_content that I know."
With a bit of trickery, you can achieve the same layout as ours easily and turn your Joomla website into a Joomla blog community easily.
