Blog

Brief introduction

From time to time I blog about web, information technology & services, information culture, web solutions etc. A more personal or general blog you can find here. Feel free to use the RSS feed (top right) to subscribe. Chrome or Chromium users can download an RSS Feed app here. If you find any of the posts interesting I don't mind use of social media functions to share links. 


The end of a Joomla Project

It's been a while since i wrote anything on this page. Wow, just hit me and i checked, not blogged here in almost a year! And when I do it's to blog about a Joomla project. Well, that's what happens when you're having fun. Or rather, when you've got your plate full with work and stuff. I do blog from time to time, mostly on...

My first go at Drupal 8, no need to hurry but...

I am onto it.. testing, testing, and testing. Hi there, been a while since I posted anything here. In fact its been months. So it was high time to infest google with some new SEO "attractions" and see if I could lure some folks to read my posts. This is this a forewarning, plan to publish more within forseeable time. Well forseeable, it depends on...

Web sites and Social Media; a wheel is still a wheel

Yes indeed, rather obvious isn't it. Yet when I look at development of technology, of tools, services, trends, as opposed to mindset, culture and strategy I sometimes wonder if the wheel, as a concept or idea, has been forgotten. The wheel is about a lot more than a means of propulsion, mobility, of transportation. It can also serve as a good model for building business,...

Tools for a smart digital presence

Social media can be pretty chaotic. While that might be a part of the game, it's also a tough challenge for those who intend to invest in marketing using digital channels. Unlike classical communication where one "cries" out a message, social media open for a dialogue with companies and organizations in a way never before possible. It is not at all unusual that it is...

A seriously good, free alternative for businesses, companies or organisations, whilst compared to those from IBM or Microsoft. One that... well click here to read/see it . In this post I will talk (or rant) about ... Social Business Whether a concept...

Drupal Encrypt, new and better version

Are you running a Drupal website without SSL certificate? If you're not not into eCommerce, run a website with webshop, forums or anything that requires or offers login for users, then you're (mostly) fine. If however you have a website that offers or uses login services, you should think about minimum safety and security. Not the least for your users but of course, personal (admin)...

Collaboration, open source style

Since mid/late 90s Collaboration technologies and services have been a particular field of interest for me. Used to say that the reason I ended up working with IT is not only because of (a genuine) interest in technology, but also due to a genuine interest in people. That a function, a service or concept actually works, and makes people happy or content. After all IT...

Drupal, some useful modules, plugins & settings

Stated before I work with several different Content Management Services. All have their strong and weak points, what's best suited depends on the project, type of web solution, size, functionality and design. So I am fairly agnostic, and abstain from any "religious" notions when it comes to choice of CMS. Drupal does however remain a favorite of mine, due to its power and flexibility. Even...

Wordpress TinyMCE Advanced, a useful plugin!

Since starting to use Wordpress more and more I've allowed myself to sink deeper into its realms. Well allowed, had to is a much better way of describing it. My general opinion about WP vs other CMS systems (such as Drupal ) is relatively unchanged. But Wordpress does have a more edible surface especially to those with little interest in tech. This however means something...
