Hello, welcome to my wiki, bloggy, techy, geeky blog thing that will hopefully contain useful info… bit like a knowledge base but only for stuff I need!
I thought I would return to WordPress for this project as it has a Wiki plugin and some very clean templates, I also like the idea of a lightweight CMS with ease of use when editing. However, after plenty of experimentation I'm finding the menu systems a little too basic and the flexibility is just not there but there seems to be plenty of 'plugins' etc around to expand, it's just a question of trawling through the thousands that are out there and trying them until I find the one that does the job.
After three days I'm disappointed to find that it can’t do the task I have in mind but have found that over the years I’ve neglected it, it has developed into a fantastic blogging tool. I guess that’s really its primary intended use and it can be extended to a fair degree. Let’s not also forget its FREE!!!
So, being a devout Joomla fan I headed over to the extensions site for a really good research session and found a single component that will do it all! And for Joomla, that’s saying something! It does the lot and I can configure the menu systems as exactly needed, edit from the front end which is the time saving factor I’m after… I find something, I ‘copy & paste’ and it’s there to refer to again when I forget how to do something.
If you would like to help and contribute, then feel free to sign up, I’m not after being the next technorati, I just need to empty my head!
