Blogs

I’m thinking it’s about time I wrote a new blog entry. The problem is, every time I do that, I end up getting really carried away and then lose the thread. I’ve got 4 blog articles sitting around in my “Drafts” folder; one about Sporting Heroes, one about Apple, one about David Millar and one about Climate Change. One day I might finish one but, hey, maybe I won’t because that’s just the way I roll.

I’ve been fiddling around with website content management stuff recently, using Joomla! basically. It’s pretty neat really but the only problem I’ve found is trying to get hold of templates and extensions to put on it that do the job I want. There are just so many of them that do similar things, some better than others, that it’s a minefield trying to work your way through it! Templates are also a bit of a nuisance; there are loads of free ones available but, more often than not, the demos that these developers point you to actually have a load of customisations and/or paid-for extras on their sites that it’s hard to tell what you’re actually going to see until you install it and then just get disappointed.

One template I’ve found that’s quite nice is one from FavThemes called “Favourite“! It’s quite subtle but fairly flexible and I used it on the East Hants Volleyball Club website I’ve been playing with. I’m quite pleased with the result so hopefully they are too.

Ah well, that’ll have to do for now. Have a nice day.
