Spent the day orienting different clients as to the use of the Internet.Â I have been migrating a bunch of friends over to G-Mail.Â The issue here is the idea that people can access their email and their Content ManagementÂ backend from any browser, but the assumption that I have had thatÂ people understand what it is that I am teaching them has been ill founded.
It is a tough thing to educate as well as manage expectations relative to web use at the same time.
I have stumbled upon Joomla now as a full and robust CMS (content management system) that is PHP as well as open source.Â I have given the thought to migrating this WordPress blog to a Joomla platform.Â The idea that I can build a fully functioning CMS website from scratch using Joomla with the type of power and control is a very attractive thing. I resurrected SturmunDrang.com from a holding pattern and brought the domain name over to BlueHost from Network Solutions and now I have Joomla ! loading and up and running is an exciting thing.
I am not entirely clear on where my knowledge of HyperText / HTMLÂ took off, but I understand now that I have a very fundamental understanding of how things work on the web.Â I have been delving into the guts of the Joomla tutorial and really starting to see how powerful and clean the CSS code in Joomla ! is a clear indicator of the depth and complexity that open source has become.
