  • Bryan Ruby: Taking a 3 Month Blogging Sabbatical

    Last month, CMS Report celebrated eight years of providing stories to readers focused on content management systems. Over the years, I've told you how grateful and even surprised I am of the success CMS Report has seen. All true, but for fear of sounding ungrateful I've never acknowledged the negatives of blogging over such an extended period of time. Today, I'm acknowledging the costs and the need to take a break from my routine of waking up before sunrise and going to bed late to maintain this site. Starting today, I'm taking a three month sabbatical away from blogging here at CMS Report.

    CMS Report will still be publishing articles from our contributors during my sabbatical, but you likely won't be seeing any articles written by me. I still plan on continuing working as editor but my office hours for the site will be reduced. I'm doing all this simply because I have responsibilities to the "day job" and myself that are begging for higher priority. In the draft for this article, I originally provided three reasons that I'm doing this sabbatical but deleted them from the published article. My reasons for taking such a break are not important but only the outcome. The end result is CMS Report will be fine without me and will likely be a better website as a result of my sabbatical.

  • Top Exec: Why separate “known” and “anonymous” visitors, when they're really on a spectrum?

    This data is powerful. Even with the “unknown” visitors, I can start to aggregate information and see if patterns based on the content they engage with develops. If they do, I can start creating specific content for southern California visitors and deliver better experiences.  Portals and web are one—it’s time to start treating every visitor as an individual.

  • Eight Years of CMS Report

    Eight Years of CMS Report

    This week, CMS Report celebrates our eight year anniversary. No one is more surprised than me. Now here we sit with thousands of articles posted by over 350 different contributing authors. I spent some time this week looking back at the most popular articles we posted here on CMS Report. Besides just a list providing the "reader's choice", I also provide my own list of favorite articles that has been posted here on CMSReport.com. When comparing the two lists, you will find the only article on both lists is the one comparing Drupal and Joomla. In 2006, it was one of the first articles that I had written which suggested CMSReport.com might stick around a little longer than I had expected.

  • Drupal says farewell to PHP 4

    Drupal says farewell to PHP 4

    Well, this certainly wasn't on my radar. Gábor Hojtsy, Drupal 6 lead maintainer, announced that starting March 1, 2014 support for PHP 4 in Drupal 6 will end. I wasn't surprise to hear about Drupal developers dropping support for PHP 4. Instead, I was in shock to hear that Drupal didn't drop support for this ancient version of PHP sooner.

    To put this announcement in perspective, the PHP project developers said their goodbyes to PHP 4 back in 2008 and I personally said my "see ya later" back in 2007. Needless to say, I don't think anyone with merit can complain Drupal is dropping PHP 4 support.

  • Acquia Builds Acquia Cloud Site Factory Next to Drupal Gardens

    Acquia Builds Acquia Cloud Site Factory Next to Drupal Gardens

    Acquia Cloud Site Factory is both Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). Acquia's new product and service shouldn't be a surprise to Acquia watchers and Drupal fans. TheFactory builds on Acquia's proven Drupal Gardens OpenSaaS software and infrastructure, on which more than 100,000 sites have been built. Here at CMS Report we've covered Drupal Gardens since the days before it was even a real product and it's been an interesting story to revisit from time to time.

    Over the years, my impression have always been that Drupal Gardens was a great way to start a Drupal site quickly, but also worrisome once your site needed to grow beyond the Garden's offeringsOne of Drupal's strengths has always been that it just isn't a CMS, but also a framework. Drupal's framework lets you push beyond the limits of your original vision for the site, but within the walls of Drupal Gardens that same ability to innovate always seemed a bit too confining for my taste. Acquia Cloud Site Factory seems to be the company's answer for those customers that needed more from their SaaS.

  • WordPress.tv: Understanding the WordPress Dashboard

    WordPress.tv: Understanding the WordPress Dashboard

    The following is a new video that posted via WordPress' own VideoPress site, WordPress.tv. This is a video explaining the components of the WordPress Dashboard. The video is intended for the beginner, but the truth is that there were a few things I learned about the dashboard and I've been using WordPress before there was a 1.0 version. The most amazing part of the video is that all is explained to you at around three and a half minutes.

    The only negative to this video is that the default embedding code from WordPress.tv is Flash. So if you can't view it here, be sure to try viewing the video at WordPress.tv.
