  • Quoting IT: John Coonen on Open Source for Hire

    Quoting IT: John Coonen on Open Source for Hire

    "Just like Automattic's proprietary bretheren at Facebook, Google, Box, eBay and a hundred other major players in the tech arena, WordPress is now ponying up like the rest of them to retain and attract the best talent available, on a world stage. Community will still play a pivotal role, but it's clear now that full-time dedicated staff is what open source leaders are betting on in order to win this race."

  • WordPress 3.9 Refines Media Experience

    WordPress 3.9 Refines Media Experience

    WordPress 3.9 has been released with a number of refinements that WordPress hopes you'll "love". The changes and new features are solid but perhaps not as many as we've come to appreciate in past WordPress point releases. Some of the new features that can be found in WordPress 3.9 include improvements in the media editing experience, gallery previews, and live editing of widgets and headers.

  • The WordPress vs Joomla vs Drupal Infographic

    The WordPress vs Joomla vs Drupal Infographic

    Years ago, I quickly discovered there was great public interest in comparisons of open source content management systems such as Drupal and Joomla. When you throw WordPress into the mix and you can attract an even greater audience. Despite how much traffic such headlines draw people in, CMS Report has been pretty selective when we provide or point to such articles. There is some uncertainty whether there is genuine value being provided in feature comparison articles which is why I've shied away from them in recent years.

    Mike Assad, former CEO of Agility Inc., once told me that in his experience feature lists are rarely used to select your CMS but instead such lists are mostly used to justify the choice you've already made. There is some truth to that, because when selecting a CMS it is more a question of whether a CMS meets your needs and less about the quantity of features it provides.

    The most difficult comparison articles for reviewers to write are those that don't pick winners or losers but instead helps readers to pick a CMS for themselves. I believe Robert Mening, WebSiteSetup.org, shared this goal in his own.comparison of WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. Robert provides both an article and the following infographic in his comparison of the big three CMSs

    WordPress 3.6 Greets Site Owners With Improved Content Revision and HTML 5 Media Player

    The month of August starts out with a bang for WordPress fans. We knew given Matt Mullenweg's State of the Word speech that it was only a matter of time when WordPress 3.6 would be released. Starting yesterday afternoon, site administrators were quickly greeted with a notification that the WordPress update was available.

    Yesterday's launch gives WordPress sites the availability of a new blog-centric theme (Twenty Thirteen), "bullet-proof" autosave and post locking, a revamped revision browser, native support for audio and video embeds, and improved integration with Spotify, Rdio, and SoundCloud.

  • CEO Corner: CMS Has Become One-Size-Fits-None

    A few months ago, CMS Australian enthusiast Said Salameh posted this excellent breakdown comparing the number of steps required to complete simple tasks between eight leading open source content management systems. He illustrates how simple things like editing a page or adding an article can take ten steps or more – far more than necessary. His post spawned a discussion on the Web Content Management group on LinkedIn drawing out frustrations from many in the industry about the complexity of content management systems – particularly open source systems.

  • 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.
