As the new government takes its place, the BBC reports, there is a frenetic dash to update the official Whitehall website.

Any owner of a website will be well aware of how even the most innocuous-seeming content can date. Did it seem like such a good idea to announce that special promotion tied into the World Cup, didn’t it? But nothing beats the feeling of foolishness when you come across a page several months after the championship has ended, and realize you forgot to remove it.

What with a turnover of personnel (an issue the government knows keenly), discontinuation of stock or the arrival of new lines, there’s always something that needs updating on a website, and that’s before you’ve even considered the matter of keeping the homepage fresh with news or up-to-the-minute content.

For many, the answer is to outsource – and we’d be happy to talk to you about that. In the meantime, if you do come across a dusty-looking page that should have been updated months ago, take heart: the government is probably sharing the very same experience.

The word Joomla is being bandied about the Internet at a rate these days but what is it?

Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables users to build websites and online applications.  As Joomla is an open source solution it is a free project.

Joomla can be used to build:

  • Corporate websites or portals
  • Corporate intranets and extranets
  • Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
  • E-commerce and online reservations
  • Government applications
  • Small business websites
  • Non-profit and organizational websites
  • Community-based portals
  • School and church websites
  • Personal or family homepages

We have jumped on the Joomla bandwagon and our Development Team is currently incorporating the Joomla interface as a tool that our clients can use to manage their websites.

We are very excited by this development and look forward to offering our clients even more management solutions.

Watch this space for updates and our Joomla launch.
