May 2012 News from
Webie Design



Greetings Visitor !

Where does the time go ? The last couple of months have been a whirlwind of new and returning clients. So many great new sites to add to our portfolio soon !

Joomla! 2.5

We have been using Joomla! 2.5 for new sites and love the sleek new administrator interface. Most of our favorite 3rd party extensions have upgraded their extensions to be compatible with the new version of Joomla!, however there are still many developers who have not. You can determine who is maintaining their code and who isn't from this simple benchmark.

Ecommerce Solutions

The most used Ecommerce solution for Joomla! has had a major upgrade as well. Virtuemart 2.0 has caused many a sleepless night here at Webie Design :) You assume when there is an upgrade that all the features of the previous version are not only available, but expanded upon. Not so with Virtuemart 2.0. It has been a real "treat" to discover all the new features (and disappearances of features). We have worked with several installations at this time and feel that Virtuemart 2.0, aside from it's rocky start will continue to be a good choice for Ecommerce.

With all the "joys" of Virtuemart 2.0, we have been using Hikashop on a few projects and find it to be a great alternative for some situations. It is a newer Ecommerce solution, however, it has many great features and the developer continues to introduce new features and options.

Regardless of your Ecommerce needs, Webie Design can evaluate your situation and choose the best Ecommerce solution for your business.
