    Do you have an older web site that is still running on the Joomla 1.5 content management system?  If so then you really need to think about migrating to Joomla 2.5 or 3.0.  The Joomla community has stopped providing security updates for Joomla 1.5, plus all of the newer extensions, modules, and plugins won’t run on the old 1.5 systems.  Migrating a site is a hard, time consuming job, but Straight Arrow Web Services can do it for you for a lot less than you might think.   Read More
