This is a sad story. Thankfully, it’s mostly just PHP.
We used to swear by Joomla. We loved the components, the modules, and the plugins. We thought the MVC structure made a ton of sense. We thought well of the Joomla model.
We figured out how to make CCKs work (CCK = Content Creation Kit). We figured out sh404sef despite its often bad compatibility with other plugins. We provided missing documentation for K2 and other plugins which not many knew how to use. We even wrote about how and where Joomla itself could improve (including dropping the exclamation point).
We were Joomla people
Y-Designs is a Business

Everyone has to Blog (generate content) to Rank

- Longer Content = Better Rank
- Unscalable Things (crazy good things) = Better Rank
