Written by Martijn van Vreeden. Posted in Updates

Analytics for Joomla started developing their plugins in February 2011. This was a time when Joomla 1.5 was still going strong. We were still delighted with all of the cool features this great platform had to offer. since that time, Joomla has been evolved into an even more sophisticated platform. Over the past year and a half we have seen Joomla introduce new versions like Joomla 1.6, Joomla 1.7 and 1.8. By now, we are up to Joomla 2.5.

The structure of Joomla 1.5 is of a respectable age by now. Everything still seems to work fine, but most developers have decided to upgrade their website to Joomla 2.5 by now. If you haven't done this yourself, please check out some of the cool new features of the latest version of Joomla.

Unfortunately, the need for speed wasn't part of the programming of the Google Plus One button. Every time you loaded a page with a +One button on it, the button was always one the last items to load. Luckily Google now practises what it preaches.
