A New Resources Directory
In the August issue of the Joomla Community Magazine the Joomla Resources Directory (JRD) team announced that we had planned to close this site with plans to implement a new one for the community. As a part of that plan we are following up by putting this announcement to inform site users and visitors to look forward to the new site. Please read the article we published for more information about why we did this and the timeline for what we have in store!
As a result of the plan you'll notice a few changes:
- We aren't accepting any new submissions to this site.
- We aren't going to approve / moderate any existing listings.
- We are going to be archiving this site for the time being until a date to be determined in the future. The site will remain mostly static, unless you wish to completely remove your listing.
Thank you for your interest in the Joomla! Resources Directory (JRD). Below are details of our rules and the procedures to get final approval to be listed in the Joomla Resources Directory. Your application will be kept in pending mode until you complete our basic requirements.
If you are using the Joomla! name or any of the Joomla! logos, images or site content you must comply with the following for approval of their use:
We at the Joomla Resources Directory have a direct interest in maintaining the integrity of the Joomla brand. As such, we cannot allow violations of the Joomla trademark, logo, brand etc. to be placed in or linked from the Joomla Resources Directory.
1. You used the Joomla! name or logo in your business name.
Conditional use logos and information are located here:
Limited use logos and information is located here, as well as the brand manual which details the rules for limited use logos:
4. Joomla! should have a "!" and a "TM" or "®" when used in the site title, header image, or slogan or the first mention of it on the page.
"The Joomla!® name is used under a limited license from Open Source Matters in the United States and other countries. *Your business name* is not affiliated with or endorsed by Open Source Matters or the Joomla! Project."
The following includes general criteria that applies to ALL submissions to the JRD:
You do not have to be involved in all of these areas.
How the new inclusive areas are calculated
A generic point system is now in place that is a general guideline to determine your level of involvement in official areas of the project. If, for example, you are not actively involved in the Forums, but are actively involved in the Magazine and have developed some extensions - that would count for active community involvement. There are no set "5 points for this or 10 points for that", instead it is a Yes or No answer for the team. "Are they involved in this area: Yes"

*In some cases we call to verify that listings are accurate.
*Hosting companies have a special provision that they must provide us a working up to date stable link to a Joomla! install to review that your servers are setup correctly. With your final review please submit administration URL and Super Admin and password. Speed is not a part of the review process. We want to confirm you have PHP running with user privileges set in an optimal way for security and usablity issues related to dynamic CMS (suPHP, fcgi, PHPSuExec or something equivalent). You can delete the site after our review. We will notify when we are done with the site.
*Once you are approved it does not mean your approved forever, we do retain the right to un-publish your listing at any time, without notice.
Failure to complete these steps in 30 days or less will result in a rejection and you will have to login again and submit your application for approval along with with your final review.
