Early today, we implemented one of our Joomla Goodies, Random Gifts, to get you, our valued customers some funs in the coming Christmas season.
So, when you surfing around the foobla.com website, if you see falling snow, you are a lucky customer. There is a hidden gift in the Gift Box, you hover on it for a surprise :)
Thank you for being here with us
We were migrated from old K2 system in Joomla 2.5 to standard Articles in Joomla 3 and got trouble with SEF URL for Tags system. It used to be like this: http://foobla.com/tag/rss.html and we want it to be http://foobla.com/tag/rss for now (we have Massive Redirects Joomla plugin to redirect all *.html page to *), but the Joomla 3 Tags doesn't manage to do it that way, every link to each tag has the Tag ID as prefix, like this: http://foobla.com/tag/124-rss
There are a nice discussion at the Joomla CMS Development Group about that at Why do Tags have the ID in the URL?
And an core-hacking solution at this: How to remove ID from URL in Joomla 2.5 & 3.0
Finally, I decided to make a simple SQL query to make that happen by dealing with Joomla core menu system, no core hacking since you don't want your work will be overwritten when your Joomla site be updated.
After almost a month of hard working, along waited of Joomla! 3.2 stable, foobla.com is now here with a new coat.
In this new website, we have done lots of changes, the most important thing is the speed, in our test on Pingdom at here it took less than 1 second to load the any pages on foobla.com.
foobla.com is using Joomla Speedy Template with Bootstrap 3 rather than the default JUI with Bootstrap 2 with tons of Mootools stuff. The Speedy Joomla Template is still on the development road and will be available to the community soon as the fastest Joomla Template ever.

We were in high mountain over a year to get obHelpDesk 3 series done almost from scratch which added Twitter Bootstrap UI.
After years of using obHelpDesk 2 series, we have enough experiences to make obHelpDesk 3 series the best Help Desk Joomla extension ever. All forms are now loading faster with highest performance possible. We also got rid of all unnecessary things which people will never use or rarely use.
There are a few problems left in this BETA release, but we are confident to use this on our production site foobla.com as well as obtheme.com (one of our companies).
Let's take a look at some screenshots to see how it is in action or visit our demo site at http://demo.foobla.com
