The title of this subject says most of what I wanted to say. I have been testing J! 3.4.1 and, so far — touch wood — I have not encountered any "show stoppers". :)

Well, just yesterday I was progressing a joomla.com site which runs J3.4.1.

I created a header logo and tried to create a new folder called logos in the images folder. It wouldn't do it. It created the new folder in images/banners.

I thought I must have made a mistake so deleted the folder and tried again with more care, only to find that's how it is.

I can't see that this would be a product of the freebie joomla.com site though I haven't checked yet. It takes me back to a similar problem at the start of J3.0.x.

I'd call that a show stopper if it's real!

Well, you know my thoughts on Joomla.com ;)

*** Almost totally off-topic ***

Interestingly, Canberra has become a technical bookstore desert. I've found it almost impossible to browse bookstores here to find books that deal with Joomla. A couple of years ago I purchased Using Joomla by Ron Severdia and Kenneth Crowther (with a foreword by Louis Landry), O'Reilly Media, 2010. This was a really well-written reference book for J! 1.5 and, at the time it was written, an introduction to J! 1.6.

(Louis was one of the principal developers from the Joomla core; I had the privilege of meeting him at a private lunch in San Jose. Lucky me, Ron took me out to dinner in San Francisco the following evening. Needless to say, I think I managed to remember one or two things they said through the foggyness of several glasses of red wine.)

This weekend I've been in Brisbane and I lobbed into Dymocks in the city there where I found a copy of Ron's book that's been updated for J! 3.x. The revised book is called Using Joomla! (2nd ed.) by Ron Severdia and Jennifer Gress (with a foreword by Ryan Ozimek), O'Reilly Media, 2014.

(Ryan was a former president of Open Source Matters whom I had the privilege of meeting at a Joomla & Beyond in Holland a couple of years ago.)

I am hoping that the second edition will be just as good as the first edition. Interestingly—for me, anyway—my name appears there in one of the images on p. 224 of the new book. :lol:

Well, now I have to take it all back. Found my mistake. Sorry Joomla.

The images folder doesn't show up in the file list in the left sidebar. To get to the images folder you have to click the up button.

One good thing: a breadcrumbs has been added so you know where you are.

How does the book compare with online tutorials and documentation, Sozzled? I'd be interested to see it at the JUG meeting.
