Joomla's caching system can be a huge benefit to your site, but can also cause a lot of headaches. The advantages are obvious: an overall better user experience, faster load times, less powerful server requirements and more. We're not going in-depth on the benefits here though. Let's talk about some of the pain-points that you should know about when trying to get Joomla's caching setup.

Should you enable SSL on your website? Yes, you should. Look at that! I just saved you the time of reading the full post. Years ago, there would have been a checklist of reasons for or against enabling SSL. Now there's no need for that list. The answer is yes and you don't even need to skip to after the fold if you don't want to. Every website should be accessible with that little 's' in https, have a green padlock and bask in the glory of some additional security. Better yet, https should be the only way to access your site.

If you do read on though, you'll get a good explanation on what SSL is for, why you should enable it and why things have changed since that non-existent post I could have made long ago.

Sessions within Joomla can be mystifying if you are unfamiliar with them. Pulling back the curtains reveals a pretty easy concept and one that you should be familiar with in case you run into some too-common issues, mainly around authentication and staying logged in, on your site.

Joomla 3.6 is scheduled for release on July 12th. The last release, Joomla 3.5, was released in March and packed a huge amount of features and updates, so you may be asking what's new in this release so soon. Originally, the next version of Joomla was planned for much later in the year, but there was a key feature that the Joomla core team (and other members of the community) felt warranted a smaller release sooner.. and we couldn't agree with their decision more.
