Website update

Posted by: ben

Tagged in: Untagged 

Our website has now been upgraded/migrated to use Joomla 1.5. There were several issues to deal with including:

  • should we move to using lower case urls and create a lot of broken links? Answer - yes, better break them now than later.
  • this blogging tool we use (myBlog) is buggy as anything for Joomla 1.5, and their support leaves a lot to be desired! I think we may have to change what we use in the future.
  • how do we restrict access to certain content? The subscription component we used for Joomla 1.0 doesn't exist for Joomla 1.5 and the alternatives were not appealing. In the end we just developed our own.

Anyway, now we can concentrate on improving the current site. For starters, I hope you enjoy the new products page. More changes to come soon.

All I can hope is that migrating to Joomla 1.6 is easier (although I read that it will require php 5.2 and mysql 5+ which causes sufficient headaches before we start)! But that can wait till 2010.
