2019 roared in like a Lion !

I realized 2019 is half over ! Things have been so busy I have barely had a chance to notice. In addition to our maintenance and subcontracting assignments, we launched 3 incredible web sites and they are worth a look. Taco Loco Catering features some incredible photography and the design turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself. The KidInsider sites are redesigns that were reworked from scratch.

Another designer told me today that Joomla was to complicated for his clients. Maybe their designer needs to hook them up with Form2Content ;)

Take Control of Your OWN Destiny

Why would a business would put their business in the hands of another company ?

I had a business owner tell me they didn't need a web site because they had a Facebook Page. In the weeks that followed, Facebook changed many of their policies and the company's Facebook Page looked nothing like it had before. The company had no control over the change to the content layout and the algorithms that determine how many Facebook users see their business page.

Should you not use Facebook ? No, you should use every marketing and social avenue you can. Your social networking presence should lead visitors back to your web site for more information to build your brand and client loyalty.

Joomla Category List with Custom Fields

A few months ago I explored doing a Joomla! Category List override to include custom fields on a client site. I thought it would come in handy for a client list as well to more easily manage notes/dates.

I was inspired from this post at Joomla! Stack Exchange.

Here is a video tutorial including all the steps:

For the 4th year in a row, Joomla! is awarded the best CMS

For the 4th year in a row, Joomla! is awarded the best CMS

joomla firstplace

No surprise that once again, CMS Critic has awarded Joomla! with the title of best CMS (content management system). Over the years I have worked with several CMS web site solutions and chose Joomla! over the others due to the advanced features available "out of the box". From a simple informational web site to a full featured site offering options based on your unique needs, Joomla! is the content management system built for versatility.

Joomla! is a free, open source, content management system with some exceptional core features such as a user access level system. Because it is open source, developers can freely create additional "components" that work off this core system to expand it's capabilities. Think of it like your car, you can choose the base model or add-on features to suit your needs.

GDPR - Noooooo !

GDPR - Noooooo !

I am on a private FaceBook page where web designers can talk "around the water cooler" from our generally lonely offices'. Another designer posted the above meme and I could really relate.

Many Joomla! developers are in Europe so perhaps my email inbox was fuller than most, however, any large company that deals with Europe also needed to comply with the new GDPR laws and I received a large amount of updated privacy notices from companies of every size.

The majority of sites I work on are not obligated to abide by this new law. A few did and so I got the opportunity to learn the basics last week (got to love a deadline...)
