Unlike most design and development firms, we at ‘corePHP’ are here to empower you to make the most out of your website! That’s why we highly recommend that you join us in Denver on December 4th and 5th for what is shaping up to be the BEST two days of training available on the planet! Did you know that if your site is not compliant with federal guidelines for the Americans with Disability Act, you may very well be subject for a $40,000 fine for the first offense? The second offense is twice as much. How do you make your site complient? What else do you need to watch out for? If you’re in the business of creating and maintaining a site (or sites) for the government, or if your site is focused on education, we recommend you attend the Expo. Our CEO, Steven Pignataro, will join 13 other Joomla! experts to present vital information that could make a world of difference to you and your site. Steven’s presentation, “How to Create Accessible Websites Using Joomla!” will tell you what you need to know.

See you in Denver!


Welcome to our new site! Our style may have changed, but we’re still the same old ‘corePHP’ you know and love.  ‘corePHP’ staff members (There are more of us now!) still strive to have the best customer service, the highest quality products, and a wide variety of products and services designed meet your needs.

As you can see, ‘corePHP’ has expanded its products, services, and staff. Our in-house design team, for example, can help you build your site from the ground up. All you have to do is tell us your vision, and we’ll turn it into a 508 compliant, xHTML, accessible template — and we’ll take care of the fine tuning and the administrative tasks that take so long to accomplish.

So, take a stroll through our new site and be inspired by the fresh style! Be sure to take special notice of our new Zen penguin: he has much knowledge to grant you. Listen to the wise Zen Penguin!



Have you ever wanted to be able to control what your Joomla! users do and and how they interact with your site — both on the front-end and back-end? Well now you can, thanks to Community ACL!

One of the most sought after pieces of functionality missing in Joomla! is the ability to assign highly advanced access levels and roles to your users. There have been other ACL components released in the past to fill this void, but since they hack the core of Joomla! to a point where it’s difficult to upgrade, many shy away from using them. With the new framework, Joomla! 1.5 uses can now create a new Access Level Control component that does very little to the core (it only hacks the menu to hide items). When you are ready to upgrade, you simply press a button and it automatically applies the patch needed for the upgrade. It’s as simple as that!

Community ACL…bringing you the ultimate in ACL for Joomla!



  • Allows you to define groups, roles and functions.
  • Powerfully synchronizes with Joomla! users and community builder fields.
  • Synchronizes with community builders’ content.
  • Allows you to define whether you want to default allow or default deny users access to your site.


  • Allows you to allow or deny access to a specific part or component or variables in the url. You can create a function with multiple access rights to a variety of components.
  • Lets you configure highly advanced options for accessing/manipulating/publishing content/categories/sections.

A blog is one of the best ways to get repeated traffic to your site. With the constant updates and new content, users will return time and time again. Not only that, but it raises your site higher in search engine rankings and increases the number of users on your site.
