Here we move again...
I thought last year I moved may website for the last time. Apparently no. This time I've even moved it to an entirely different CMS. Reason? There's a whole list of reasons. First and the most important is definitely speed. I know my website was fast with an average response time about 200 ms. However, that was only because I've been using all kinds of cache. With 'System - Cache' plugin disabled, response time jumped to 4 s. I know I could've disabled all unnecessary extensions and do some optimisation of the remaining ones. Yes, I could. I could also write every single non-core extension from scratch to get optimal performance (side note: why aren't the core extensions part of the core? If CMS is useless without certain extensions, they should be integrated!)
This brings up another problem: customisation. Joomla! is really strict at telling you what you can and can't do. For example, you can't put modules inside the main content, which is really a shame since many nice extensions only come in form of modules. I could write them on my own, if I didn't have to write a whole back end and database connector just to display a simple FAQ. It's always the same - either Joomla! won't let me do it, or it will take whole lot of code even for a simple task.
And now the questions you've all been asking while reading this page: What about Videobox? As you can see on the Music page I've aready adapted it for this CMS so I obviously don't plan to abandon it. I'm taking it off from Joomla! Extension Directory for now. Next I plan to do a full port to MODX including documentation and adapters, and then I'll prepare a new Joomla! version. For now I can only tell that the new Joomla! version of Videobox will be available just for Joomla! 3. I'll give you more updates about it as I get there.
