If you have not seen our Apps page that we have just published a while ago. We have been featuring Apps for Joomla and WordPress. We would like to high light one of those apps today.
Some companies want a little more out of their site then just a blogging based system. WordPress can take you so far in a company website. Joomla has a better base for a more complex system that your company may need. Joomla does sorta have an article and category blogging-ish system.
EasyBlog is not just a Blogging software like WordPress. Its more then just a post that goes into a feed, it’s a better system. EasyBlog allows you easily have multiple people writing news for a single website. You also have built in the system to allow users to be in a group and posts can be assigned to that group so they can only see it.
To keep up with the changes to the future of the web, we will be testing out the new version of Joomla that is planned to be released in September. Joomla is a powerful system and I cannot wait to see what is in the new version. I will give you guys an update as to what I find.
There is new release of the popular blog application WordPress. With a lot of other blog programs out there now WordPress is trying to step up their game, I find in the new version. I believe that they have been listening to the users and have started to put in social media integration into their posts. Well I say social media but at this release it is really just twitter. With that being said you can now copy the URL of a tweet that you want to talk about into post ( I am still trying to figure that out). In their demo it looks interesting, but for the users that are not very web savvy is it easy to do? At this moment I say not. The other feature that we have noticed so far is the inline theme editing. Which means that if you use the default theme you can custom the colour and change some features around.
Of course they say that they made it faster on the back end which is good but thats what upgrading is about. Once we figure out how to get the URL of a tweet we will show you guys. With the new security updates we do recommend this update.
Since there is a surge into going mobile, if it is your desktop is now a laptop or just using your Blackberry. Your web site should work with everything, we are testing out some new mobile solutions. Right now we have tested joemobi.com and weeverapps.com. Both have their differences and we can tell you about each. Just send us an email and we can give you the details.
We have been looking around for new and innovated ideas for you our customer. Following Blackberry’s Dev department on Twitter we saw them talking about a new application for your Blackberry. It sounded interesting so we thought we would check it out. Currently it is in Beta form and we are testing it out. The application is called JoeMobi; this application adds a plugin to your wordpress web site and grabs all your blog posts and updates an application on your Blackberry. We think it is a GREAT idea and will be watching the developments and let you guys know when it is out of Beta. If you want to try it now then contact us and we will set you up.
There are some companies that want to do things on their own and not use social media. Maybe you have a group and not a page for your business? A page will help reach your target audience, a group can not do that. We help you to understand the ways of the facebook page. Here is a little intro to the Facebook page.
We would like to welcome klairproducts to the house. They are one of Paintball’s most recent independent remote line maker. They start in 2008 bringing out the Kobra Line product. For anyone in the Paintball Community knows about them or soon will with their redesigned site. Klairproducts came to Monkhouse Hosting looking for a new direction for their site. We worked closely with them to bring their web site that they had visioned in their mind. Check out their site and let know what you think.
