  • The Best Drupal and Joomla Comparison of 2013

    The Best Drupal and Joomla Comparison of 2013

    Sitting on my desktop the past few weeks has been an eBook from the Aluent Group, Drupal and Joomla!: A Comparison of Project Processes and Costs. I probably would have not read this eBook if it wasn't for an acquaintance of mine, Justin Kerr, letting me know that he was a co-author of the book. I'm lucky to have read the book because I think in the sense Justin Kerr as well as co-authors Robert Nowak and Jet Pixel have hit a home run in their review and comparison of Drupal and Joomla.

  • Run cPanel On Your CMS Server? Verify Your Server Wasn't Compromised

    Run cPanel On Your CMS Server? Verify Your Server Wasn't Compromised

    If you have ever hosted your website on a server or virtual private server then chances are pretty high you once did or currently are using cPanel. cPanel is a graphical web-based control panel that helps site owners and administrators to quickly and easily manage their website and hosting account. It's an awesome tool that interfaces with your server to help you perform once difficult tasks such as creating databases, manage website files, as well as setting up email accounts. Unfortunately, hackers broke into a proxy server used by cPanel, Inc's technical support department and now there are concerns that a trojan may have spread onto your server.

  • The Now What? Conference is Coming to Sioux Falls

    The Now What? Conference is Coming to Sioux Falls

    Despite all the technology related companies in the Sioux Falls region, the one thing we've been missing is a great conference that really puts this city on everyone's map. That is why, thanks in parts to the effort of Blend Interactive, I'm expecting the Now What? Conference 2013 to be one of the most significant content related conferences I'll be attending this year. If your profession depends on web content and you know where Sioux Falls then I sincerely recommend you register for this event today. If by chance you miss the low early bird price, I wouldn't fret too much because even the standard price to attend is quite reasonable due to the high caliber of speakers that will be attending this conference.

  • In 20 Minutes: What I know about Joomla!

    In 20 Minutes: What I know about Joomla!

    Recently, the fine folks at CMS-Connected gave me the opportunity to become a periodic guest for the CMS in the Spotlight segment of their show. CMS-Connected is an hour-long monthly news webcast that focuses on the content management industry. For the January show we had Joomla! in the spotlight, but once we went live I soon found myself challenged to adequately cover the CMS given short period of time and format. So the video below contains additional comments I have about Joomla!, Joomla 3.0, open source, people, and the business side of Joomla!

  • The Why and What of Web Privacy and Accessibility Guidelines

    The Why and What of Web Privacy and Accessibility Guidelines

    In the recent times when we developed web properties, it has become standard for us to adhere to "Privacy and Accessibility" guidelines. In some cases, the customers have their own set of privacy and accessibility guidelines, and in other cases the customers expect the implementation agencies to follow the latest standard. In either case the core of these guidelines are laid out of by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

    In Summary it is essential to follow these Privacy and Accessibility guidelines. Lack of follow-up of these would lead to 1) Usability issues 2) Risk in terms of legal compliance, with potential for costly fines (potential for multi-millions) and regulatory orders
