What is JoomlaCode?

Joomlacode.org is the repository for the Joomla! source code as well as many open source Joomla! extensions. It requires separate registration from the the other joomla.org sites.

Where can I find information to checkout Joomla! using SVN?

See this link; http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla/scmsvn/?action=AccessInfo

I registered an account on JoomlaCode.org, but I never received an activation email. What do I do?

Please ensure that the activation email is not in your spam folder. If you still can not find it, then email a JoomlaCode.org team member at http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,149788.0.html and ask him/her to email the activation link to you directly.

Why did my project get rejected?

The "Project Rejected" email should contain specific information regarding the reason(s) why, and may suggest a remedy.

Most common reasons to date:

  • The description is non-English; multi-lingual is more than acceptable.
  • The description does not provide enough information about the project purpose and outcome.
  • The project does not conform to the requirements of the JoomlaCode.org project rules.
  • Your project was not related to Joomla!
  • Your project was a "commercial" product.
  • Your project is not a "code" project.

If I have a problem or find a bug with JoomlaCode.org how can I report it?

JoomlaCode.org has setup a Support project please post your issues there, then they can be managed and tracked by the team. http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/support/tracker/

There is a feedback forum for Joomlacode:

http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/board,406.0.html.

When I created my account, I typed in the wrong UNIX Name. Can you change it for me?

Unfortunately, this is something that we can not do. The only option is to request that we delete your project, so that you can resubmit it for approval.

Why I get a "Permission Denied" message when trying to view a project?

The project was migrated and still needs to be activated by the admin. As soon as we get a request from the admin, we will assign the project to them. It is the admin's responsibility to make a project public.

My project got rejected and I was asked to re-register it. Now I cannot re-submit it, I get a message saying that the project already exists. What do I do?

Re-register your project using a different "Unix Project Name". (This is a known issue that is being worked on as we speak, apologies for the inconvenience )
