I know I’ve been kind of quiet; been busy working a lot with osCommerce. It really makes me want to learn Magento, which at least looks a lot nicer and easier to customize.
So I’m going to do up a “coder’s comparison” for them in the near future, once I learn enough Magento.
Look forward to it!
Just thought to mention that you can now view the many exciting pages of wizonesolutions.com (cough) on your iPhone, iPod Touch, Android device (I’ve got a G1 myself), or Blackberry Touch!
Thanks to the makers of the WPtouch plugin for enabling this possibility. The plugin’s home page is: http://bravenewcode.com/wptouch
Today I snuck up a link to a portfolio page. Said portfolio will be getting filled in soon. I just wanted to make sure you realize you can just contact me for the moment if you want to know what work I’ve done. Rest assured that I’ve done this stuff before…a lot 🙂
Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend.
Update: I’ve finally reached a mutually beneficial agreement with my contact form. It works now.
I just noticed the contact form has become a captcha nazi. Contact forms don’t like me, for some reason. But not to fear – I’m on the case and it’ll be fixed shortly. Watch for one of those fancy Update: messages on this blog post!
Since everyone else is doing it, I’m also getting a Facebook page soon. Keep an eye on the blog and on the Connect section to the right. It’ll be appearing soon.
Have a great week.
I’ve been playing around with Joomla! lately, and it seems to have its pros and cons. Compared to Drupal, it seems a little unnecessarily complex at times, and I don’t really understand the naming conventions for its extensions (“modules,” at least – blocks, the Drupal equivalent, is a much clearer term).
The administration interface is worth applause, though…Drupal’s is simpler, although it can be souped up with modules. It seems like Joomla! has more out-of-the-box but that Drupal is easier to get going with and to tailor to one’s needs. I prefer the latter, since it gives more flexibility to the creation and presentation of content.
Drupal’s also got much nicer URLs, and turning on its “Clean URLs” is super-easy.
So I’m still on the Drupal side, but if you think I should reconsider or try to get more into Joomla!, let me know in the comments.
At some point, I’ll do a proper comparison between the two.
After some downtime, I’ve finally launched my new WordPress-based site! While it’s rather plain right now, this site will transform over time into a sample of what I can do using WordPress.
For now, browse around, and keep an eye on the blog for more info.
