WordPress vs Joomla : Which CMS Should You Choose?

3.5

index   While there is a large number of Content Management Systems (CMS) to choose from, few CMS platforms are more popular and more widely used than WordPress and Joomla. Some wrongly believe that Joomla and WordPress are popular simply because they are the oldest. In reality they are neither the oldest nor the pioneers of the CMS space. In fact, there are plenty of CMS platforms that existed before the turn of the millennium. WordPress didn’t rear its head until 2003, and Joomla didn’t show up until around 2005.

The popularity of either platform is largely due to its ease of use. The birth of the widely accepted open source CMS has given millions of users all around the power to create their own dynamic websites. Even some giant brands have turned to open source content management to streamline the web content management process.

In this post, we aim to give you the information you need to make the decision between the Joomla or WordPress CMS.

What is Ecommerce?

3.5

 

Electronic commerce or ecommerce is a term for any type of business, or commercial transaction, that involves the transfer of information across the Internet. It covers a range of different types of businesses, from consumer based retail sites, through auction or music sites, to business exchanges trading goods and services between corporations. It is currently one of the most important aspects of the Internet to emerge.

Ecommerce allows consumers to electronically exchange goods and services with no barriers of time or distance. Electronic commerce has expanded rapidly over the past five years and is predicted to continue at this rate, or even accelerate. In the near future the boundaries between “conventional” and “electronic” commerce will become increasingly blurred as more and more businesses move sections of their operations onto the Internet.

Business to Business or B2B refers to electronic commerce between businesses rather than between a business and a consumer. B2B businesses often deal with hundreds or even thousands of other businesses, either as customers or suppliers. Carrying out these transactions electronically provides vast competitive advantages over traditional methods. When implemented properly, ecommerce is often faster, cheaper and more convenient than the traditional methods of bartering goods and services.

HTML5 Videos: 10 Things Designers Need to Know

The HTML5 revolution is exciting web designers from all areas of the globe. The new specifications support dozens of elements and attributes for building semantic websites. These new features include multimedia tags for audio and video formats.

HTML5 Videos for the web - featured image VideoJS

In past years a Flash-based media player in more than sufficient for streaming on the Web and this technology is still necessary to support legacy browsers. But thankfully modern standards have advanced and the inclusion of HTML5 video opens doors for dozens of new opportunities.

In this guide I’d like to offer an introduction to HTML5 video for the Web. It will take some practice to understand the native in-browser player and all its functionality. And the best way to get familiar is diving in head first!

 

1. Types of Media

When you’re working with a flash video player it’s all too common to associate all video formats in .flv. While this does work, most flv files cannot retain quality anywhere near the more advanced file formats/codecs. There are 3 important video types which are supported by HTML5: MP4, WebM, and Ogg/Ogv. The MPEG-4 file type is generally encoded in H.264 which allows for playback in third party Flash players. This means you don’t need to keep a .flv video copy to support a fallback method! WebM and Ogg are two much newer file types related to HTML5 video. Ogg uses Theora encoding which is based on the open-source standard audio file format. These can be saved with a .ogg or .ogv extension.

WebM Open Project video source

WebM is a project put out by Google which you can read more about on the WebM Project website. The format is already supported by Opera, Google Chrome, Firefox 4+, and most recently Internet Explorer 9. It’s still unknown by most web professionals but WebM is the leading video media format in the future of web video.
