The JoeJoomla Blog

Everyone has an opinion. Here's mine. What's yours?

Recently I had a meeting with a product manager at a company who told me that their IT department had just been given approval to revamp their website. They are going to use an obsolete website development tool to create essentially a collection of static web pages. It's hard to believe that people are still putting resources into static HTML websites these days. It's obvious they have no idea what a true content management system like Joomla! is. Website systems like Joomla! are cost effective as well as easy to use and maintain. They are not going to be positioning themselves for the future with the decision that they made. Add a comment

approve So you have that great new blog going and you're really excited about it. You wrote what you think should be a popular entry and you have your commenting system enabled to capture all the great compliments that everyone is going to give you.

You are pumped as you hit the publish button on the blog and now you are anxiously waiting for the first comment. Waiting for the first one is like the new movie release date of a Hollywood blockbuster, if it doesn't get good attendance quickly it's more likely to be a flop than a winner.

4-steps With all the clutter that is online these days people are hard pressed to keep up with information. If you are going to get and keep any one's attention you need to be straightforward and very clear about what your website is all about. You have only a few seconds to make that first impression. Are you doing it right?

I have been guilty of not keeping my own advice and It's time to change that. I'm going to bare my soul. This blog post could just as well be titled 'How I Got Sick And Tired Of An Under-performing Website And Decided To Do Something About It'.

Hey Joomla I thought it would be fun to turn a famous Beatles tune into a Joomla! song. Both are superstars and Joomla! deserves an anthem. it has to be something worthy of the magnitude of Joomla!, not simply a one hit wonder.

Although I've banged around on the piano a few times in the past you don't want me singing this. Someone with a lot more musical talent than I have needs to do it. I heard the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, is a great performer and likes the Beatles. If you can't convince him to do it you'll just have to hum it along to yourself. Now go find your copy of 'Hey Jude'. You do remember where you put it don't you?
