New AST Enzyme Systems Joomla Site Goes Live

Filed under: Blog Articles — Tags: , , , — Jeff Weissberg @ 12:30 pm

AST-Joomla-WebsiteFollowing the successful launch and performance of two prior web development projects, Specialty Enzymes and Biochemicals, in Chino California, recently contracted SoCal WebWorx to design and develop a third company website for Advanced Supplemental Therapies.

The site was built from a Joomla platform http://www.joomla.org with an easy-to-use admin panel for frequent client revisions.  The WYSIWYG editor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WYSIWYG makes changes to the website pages a snap. And for more ambitious users it allows for revising page formatting including sidebars, skin colors and banner images. Since Joomla is a popular Content Management System platform there are lots of plug-ins and add-on features available from reputable contributors.  In addition, this platform allows for developing a very Search Engine friendly website.  A generous dose of keyword rich verbiage from the client and full Meta tagging combine to generate maximum organic website traffic.

Content Mangement Systems – Joomla or Drupal?

Filed under: Blog Articles — Tags: , — Jeff Weissberg @ 8:44 am

We talked about website design and development with Content Management Systems in the last blog. We mentioned that Drupal was an example of a content management system but didn’t discuss any other options. Now that you know what a CMS is, you should also know that you have options. One of the major competitors for Drupal (mentioned in prior blog)  is called Joomla and it will be the subject of today’s blog.

Joomla is a good choice for someone who is just starting out with content management. It has a very user-friendly interface and offers lots of unique features including caching, RSS feeds, printable web pages, news flashes, blog polls, search, and language internationalization support. Joomla also has a great selection of free and commercial design templates and themes. Like Drupal, Joomla is a good CMS to help you start a community with multiple users; it is also a great tool to help you start an online store. The most common drawbacks of Joomla are that it is not XHTML compliant and that it does not allow for multi-sites. If you would like to discuss in detail which content management system works best for your needs give us a call and we’ll provide some suggestions.

What is JOOMLA?

Filed under: Blog Articles — Tags: , — Deb Foley @ 7:25 pm

Joomla! is a free open source content management system for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets as well as a Model–view–controller (MVC) Web Application Development framework. The system includes features such as page caching to improve performance, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, polls, website searching, and language internationalization. Joomla is licensed under the GPL, and is the result of a fork of Mambo.

It is written in the PHP programming language and uses the MySQL database.
