  • Baseline: Best Buy Officials Concede Dual-Site System

    This kind of stuff is just plain wrong. The confusion stems from two visually identical sites that Best Buy employees can show customers. The sites have only a handful of minor functionality differences, with the key difference being that the prices are sometimes different, said Chap Achen, director of order management for Best Buy. (Complete Story)Late last year, I had an experience as a customer that leads me to believe that there are some problems with the value system and culture over at…

    This is a busy week for me with an all-day software load scheduled this week for my work's operational systems.  Translation...you likely will not see many original posts from me for a few days.  I will however continue to post some links and excerpts  on CMS news items that catch my attention. The good news, it looks like the layout issues with the Drupal theme I'm using, Zen, are finally being resolved.  The layout issues were with how the theme displayed in Internet Explorer 6.  No one has…

  • 20bits: Four Problems with Drupal

  • Why open source attracts my attention

    From CMS Report's very beginning, I had every intention to talk about not only those content management systems (CMS) that are open source, but also those CMS that are considered propriety systems.  I personally don't have a problem seeing companies making profit for the products they develop and promote.  Yet, if you look at the majority of posts I have written in the past year you'll find that about 95% of the articles center around open source CMS and not propriety systems.  Part of the…

  • Donncha: Catch it if you can! WordPress MU 1.1.1 escaped!

    I could not help but chuckle when I read this post.  Donncha O Caoimh  hinted that he may have released Wordpress MU 1.1.1 a day earlier then he intended.  Sort of like sending that e-mail or blog post sooner then you had intended.  Despite the release of Wordpress MU 1.1.1 a day early, it still sounds as if you can expect a good package out of this version. Despite my best efforts to put off releasing WordPress mu 1.1.1 for another day it slipped through my fingers, tarred and zipped itself…
