  • CMS User: Do not forget about CPG Dragonfly

    I received an email from CPG Dragonfly CMS advocate, Dizfunkshunal. He observed that we do not cover Dragonfly here too much. Sadly, Dizfunkshunal is correct in his observation, in the past we have posted only a few articles regarding Dragonfly. How did this happen? Articles regarding a particular content management system get posted on this site by two significant groups of people. Those two groups of people that have the power to put focus on a specific CMS are you and me. The 30 CMS…

  • Drupal shopping carts:  Ubercart and e-Commerce module still the way to go

    Drupal shopping carts: Ubercart and e-Commerce module still the way to go

    In 2006, I helped bring a friend's Fish and Tackle store online using open source osCommerce. The project was ugly in both appearance and code as I was merging a legacy site with an SMF forum together with the osCommerce software. As I indicated back then, while osCommerce was functional I was not pleased with the software. I kept on thinking how much easier this project would have been if I had used what I consider as modern CMS's. Specifically, I was thinking Drupaland perhaps even Joomla!.

  • Quoting IT: Prisoners of Legacy

    "We’re now at the point where the most innovative technology for users really is being created in the nonbusiness space. Corporate IT has become the prisoner of legacy technology, and the result isn’t just stodginess — we’re missing out on innovation that could make our users more productive, more effective and more successful." --Frank Hayes, "Prisoners of Legacy", ComputerWorld, January 7, 2008

  • Spreading the Word

    I really like the advice Global Moxie has given their users for how best to promote their content management system, Big Medium. In their blog post, Psst... Pass It On! Spreading the Word about Big Medium, they talk about various way users can "spread the word" about Big Medium. They show a good understanding for how online communities work, including what you shouldn't do when marketing a product via a blog or forum. Don’t be a zealot If you’re posting in forums or on blogs, be…

  • Corporate Social Networking Stalls?

    Yes, another challenge for those of us that work in the IT department! Just what we wanted, right? We're spending all this time reworking the corporate Intranet so everyone can collaborate better. What happens when we're done and no one shows up? It could be tempting to conclude that because your employees enjoy keeping a personal blog or spending time with contacts on social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn, that they would want to participate in an internal corporate…

  • New e107 version for the New Year

    A new version of e107 has been released, e107 0.7.11. There is also a hint that it's time to think about version 0.8! If you haven't tried e107 for a while, I encourage you to do so! During my tenure as a judge in 2007 for Packt Publishing, I surprisingly ranked e107 as number two in the Overall Winner category. Given the final outcome, the other judges didn't agree with me...but I stand by my position. e107 is an open source content management system worthy of your consideration. New…

  • Updates for Wordpress and XOOPS

    Yes, Wordpress and XOOPS are two completely separate projects, but they do have at least one thing in common. Both Web applications were updated this past week to adddress known security vulnerabilties. Wordpress 2.3.2 was relased to fix some very significant security bugs. The release addresses an exploit that can be used to expose your draft posts. Wordpress 2.3.2 also "suppresses some error messages that can give away information about your database table structure and limits and stops…
