On the first look, the B2 Evolution looks great and it has multiple section for your blogging needs. You can create blog A say for personal blogs, blog B for your hobbies, blog C for your photography, etc. (more…)

Earlier this year, one of my friends WordPress website and Drupal website was hacked. Both of them were running a travel website and their site was stuff full of web spam with links to dubious website selling dubious products. Appears this was no isolated incident and I have come across forums where some person websites was hack here and there. Security is an issue if ever you are maintaining a website using any of the software for making website. (more…)

HTML extension vs PHP, ASP, SHTML, PHTML, etc

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

I have been curious, whether a HTML extension (or HTM extension for that matter) would do as well in a search engine as compared with extension that ended up in PHP, ASP, SHTML, PHTML, etc, etc. Of course each extension has its own usefulness.

HTML was started pretty long ago for use with web browsing. HTML meaning Hyper Text Markup Language or HTML in short as a standard means of encoding a file to display text and graphic on your browser. It has since come a long way with many changes to its standards, though those old web pages should still work in the new modern browsers despite having HTML code that may be deprecated.

There was also forum thread discussing whether HTML will have a better standing than HTM extension. And there was more too discussing whether HTML extension would be superior in search engine than web pages that uses extension like PHP, ASP, SHTML, PHTML, JSP, CGI, etc, etc. (more…)

Some problem with Simple Script

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Recently I wanted to update my database driven software like this WordPress which was managed by Simple Script. Sure, using Simple Script to manage my software installations in Bluehost was really convenient, but I didn’t expect to see hiccups in their updating of software. Try as I might, the installations wouldn’t update to the latest version.

In the end I had to contact Bluehost support to find out what’s the matter. A flurry of exchanges later, still no solution could be found. Apparently another user also reported a similar problem – inability to update the software using Simple Script. (more…)

WordPress websites

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

After having tried a few CMS software installation, my favourite is still using WordPress to make your own web sites. Sure it is more like a blogging software than a proper content management system, however even Joomla/Drupal could be used for blogging. It all depends on how you create the structure of your web site that will determine your web site is more towards blogging or more towards information dissemination.

Dreamweaver web building software or content management system (CMS)?

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

I’m never a fan of bloated web building software like Dreamweaver or Microsoft Frontpage. Sure they are very easy to use for designing a web page. Very much like using Microsoft Word or Powerpoint, just create a box here and there and add in your content, pictures and whatever you need to create your web page. Where simplicity began is also where your nightmare to do something more complicated began. (more…)

In addition, if you decided to turn your WordPress blog into a Content Management Style (CMS) type website with hierarchical structure, no problem, it could be done too. (more…)
