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.
We hope that by turning our attention to a newer, much more functional site we will be able to make this site the resource in the community that it has always had the potential to be! We hope you are as excited as we are to work on a new beginnings for this community asset.
The process to submit and be approved to have your listing appear in the JRD is a very simple one.
The first step you must take is to verify that your website meets all the requirements laid out by the Terms of Service document. Once you are sure that your website meets ALL of these requirements you can then begin the submission process.
To submit your site you need to create a user account here at the JRD.
Once you have created the account, you need to click the verification link that shows up in your email. If you did not receive an email, please check your spam folders. If you still do not see a registration email, send us an email. Please include the user name you used to sign up.
After you have verified your account, login to the site.
Navigate to the category you would like your listing to appear. Once you have found the category you want your listing to be categorized in, click the "Add Your Listing Here" link on the top right of the page.
You will be taken to a form that asks for information regarding the services you intend to provide. Fill out all the required information. Assuming you agree to adhere to all the requirements of the Terms of Service, submit the listing.
As of the 8th of March, 2010 the JRD Team has initiated a number of required information fields in the submission form for the JRD. All of the information you need to provide is clearly laid out in the JRD Approval Checklist.
