Joomla! on the web

Post by JurajB » Thu Sep 17, 2020 5:49 am

Why isnt Joomla! releases on majorgeeks.com? Wordpress and Drupal are. It should increase a popularity a bit.
I think it may be a good idea. Can you do this?

Probably because that website is not well known (or maybe I am the only one that hears about it for the first time).
Or because you need volunteers to keep the listing up-to-date.

If you think that it's a good idea, please volunteer to make it happen!
And keep the listing up-to-date with every Joomla release.
Thanks in advance!

It's not on https://www.snapfiles.com either
It's on https://download.cnet.com but several older versions
Perhaps someone could make sure those sites point to https://downloads.joomla.org/

Could you please take care of that yourself?
It will be appreciated by your fellow Joomla community volunteers!

Yes, you are right. The requirements state "include press kit" etc, so it's probably more something for the Joomla Marketing Team. I'll contact the marketing team.

Thank for trying anyway!

Need to discuss with you, I wrote majorgeeks.com about Joomla! 3.9.21
Will be a good idea to post also Joomla! 4 Beta 4 as beta? Joomla! will have more testers.
Thanks for help!

If you think that it's a good idea to post also Joomla! 4 Beta 4, then feel free to add it.
Please mention that the Beta version is only for testing purposes and not for live sites.
Thanks!

For me this type of PR/Marketing should be organised task for the Marketing department/coordinator.

It’s a very good "proactive" pr for Joomla in different channels and it’s very important bcs people/users doesn’t know about Joomla in the world..
Success in the long run Its not about the code its about the people and community that's make it!
Its not what you say its what you do that matters!

so PR/Marketing should write these sites
majorgeeks had yesterday Contentteller update in their list
did search for Joomla and found nothing

I am awaiting a reply from snapfiles. I agree with @JurajB it is best Joomla's PR/Marketing take up the baton.

I think you have to go to Joomla teams ie https://volunteers.joomla.org/teams and there find the Marketing team https://volunteers.joomla.org/teams/marketing ie Github https://github.com/joomla/joomla-marketing
