The end of a Joomla Project

It's been a while since i wrote anything on this page. Wow, just hit me and i checked, not blogged here in almost a year! And when I do it's to blog about a Joomla project. Well, that's what happens when you're having fun. Or rather, when you've got your plate full with work and stuff. I do blog from time to time, mostly on...

Drupal, some useful modules, plugins & settings

Stated before I work with several different Content Management Services. All have their strong and weak points, what's best suited depends on the project, type of web solution, size, functionality and design. So I am fairly agnostic, and abstain from any "religious" notions when it comes to choice of CMS. Drupal does however remain a favorite of mine, due to its power and flexibility. Even...

Wordpress TinyMCE Advanced, a useful plugin!

Since starting to use Wordpress more and more I've allowed myself to sink deeper into its realms. Well allowed, had to is a much better way of describing it. My general opinion about WP vs other CMS systems (such as Drupal ) is relatively unchanged. But Wordpress does have a more edible surface especially to those with little interest in tech. This however means something...

Active trail in menu, a couple of tips

Web Navigation has evolved tremendously over the past few years. Code standards of different sorts have become very refined whether we talk CSS (Cascading Stylesheets) or other. Most Content Management solutions also allow you to extend navigation in different directions, either by core functionality or by installing additional modules or plugins. Of these there are plenty but it's not always needed. To create a good,...

Wordpress & lay-out: less is more

Web design and content presentation trends have changed a lot over the past 10-20 years. Long gone is tolerance for, and patience with, 100+ lines paragraphs, cluttered pages, word and function density beyond sensible measures. With better tools and platforms previous layout and presentation methods have gotten their renaissance. Use of large fonts, lots of air on the page surface, plenty of space. This was...

Tags and tagging in blog

Finally that too is done, well at least for the blog, see no point in tagging static information pages, those are few, will remain few and are easy to find. I didn't build or incorporate tagging and taxonomy into this site from the beginning, simply because a blog wasn't part of the original plan. It wasn't until later I decided to enable the blog, later...

Yeah I am "drupalized", with good reason(s)

Indeed, and I don't say that because it's hip or cool, but because of the platform , the possibilities, solidity, scalability and, not entirely unimportant, safety. Though truth be told, if you are concerned with security then the first thing to consider is to get a SSL certificate for your website, regardless of what it's build with. Especially if you offer any form of login,...

Changes - some thoughts re. Web CMS Design

Over the course of the next few weeks there will be some new changes to this website. Initially I thought about replacing the entire design, make it more modern so to speak. But I've come to the conclusion that all I need is to include some new functions, and (for now at least) keep the design as is. Certain section here may however change a...

New web project, something (completely) different

Been working on a new project that was launched a couple of days ago. Quite different from most other things I've done, not the least with regards to the web architecture. Good to work with new angles, get a different perspective. In early discussions with the client it quickly became clear that they wanted something modern, a solution with less text and easy reading. A...
