The Upgrade and new look for the Website is now completed ! Happy New Year

on Wednesday, 02 January 2013. Posted in Blog

 

 

The upgrade and facelift of the website went well, i am now using Joomla 3.0 and the back end database is a mysql database, also using web services to poll with other sites in real time like twitter.

Overall the planning and the execution went well, where i faced a challenge was on the data conversion where i took a decision to convert the data with a timestamp of January 1st , this allowed me to save a considerable amount of time and helped me accelerate the conversion of all articles and material from the older website, the other option was to manually import each article and material one by one where that would of taken me 2-3 days. The only drawback to this decision they will be earmarked as written on January 1st.

The site has now a friendly mobile twist to it and I have enabled comments to continue our two way communication in 2013.

Next steps I will work on enabling Video with youtube and finalize the tags for the site (Tags are a non-hierarchical keyword or term assigned to a piece of information . This kind of metadata helps describe an item and allows it to be found again by browsing or searching.)

As usual please provide me your comments on the site and suggestions once again a Happy 2013 filled with prosperity , health and happiness.

    Hi Alex! Long time no see, isn't it?

    I got your message about this new presentation via LinkedIn. First comment: the font for post content is not consistent accross each entries and that's annoying (different sizes and different types). Second one: in some articles (like http://appsconsultant.com/item/Stay%20Optimistic), the container with the entry date and category overlaps the first sentence of the text!

    Good work.
    Happy new year.
    A+, Dom

    Good job with the mobile interface. Its clean and clear.

    But it could use a little more colors, but that's just me.
