Ten Things You Can Do With Mambo

1. Mambo gives you access to a complete database that is driven by the site engine of your choice.
This enables you to operate online and find the content you are looking for quickly. Mambo software is a tool for content management that enables you to create and manage websites through a very simplified web interface. Due to its ease of use, it has attracted many users and has become an accepted software tool. It has undergone thorough testing procedures on LINUX and a host of other operating systems.

2. Mambo gives you the ability for you to handle interface translocation.
Internalization of content is possible with this software. You can advertise and put banners that will be accessible to clients and colleagues who are international destinations. Mambo enables you put labels on the content that needs to be documented. Once you have labeled the content, its location can be easily recalled. This means that you can call content from anywhere within the database and access the information at the click of a button.

3. Page caching mechanism improves the performance of the content management system in very busy sites.
When using universal functions, one has to be sure that a function with the same name has not been defined elsewhere. With correct description of the appropriate functions, it is easy for you to package custom work for easier content management. Content can be easily edited, updated and transformed through the real time system.

4. All media files including images and documents can be edited and scheduled for publication in online sites.
This enables the contributors to have a look at the changes they have made to the documents. Content syndication is possible since the files are friendly to search engine systems.

5. A dynamic poll or forum that releases results on the spot.
This provides the user with an interactive medium. There are many layouts to choose from when launching content on the internet and the choice of the best layout may require polling.

6. Access groups can be reached on a hierarchical listing.
This ability enables the user know who is who in the system and this makes file management a very easy task. There is hierarchy of objects that enables the user define departments, topics, locations and sites.

7. The archive manager enables the user to keep content in an archive rather than throwing the content away.
With Mambo you are able to easily keep all the content you have ever put up on your Mambo site.

8. Editor support for content management enables the system to have a more collaborative outlook.
The editor is supported by the WYSIWYG platform, something that has not been installed in any other system.

5 Best template sites

March 11th, 2009 | Posted under The Internet, Web Hosting Tips | No Comments »

If you’re not much of a builder, but also not much of a designer, you’re in luck. Because not only can you download and install a CMS like Joomla or WordPress, you can also download a very nice template for it, so that you can have a functional website that also looks good. Sometimes they’re free; sometimes you have to pay over a hundred dollars. Keep in mind that paid ones are not better by default; they’re just made by more commercial people. You can find templates on the following sites.

OSSkins
www.osskins.com
OSSkins is a very large website that has templates for open-source platforms like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress. You can buy some of them for a fixed price, others require a membership. And if you don’t want to pay, just click the free section, they’re also very nice.

RocketTheme
www.rockettheme.com
These guys are in one word: brilliant. I have to admit, you pay a lot for it, you have to get a subscription, but these guys don’t just design templates, they design little miracles. And don’t worry about uploading and configuring a template. Just download a complete Joomla package including the template, and install the whole thing at once.

ThemeLayout
www.themelayout.com
A very good looking website with a very clear interface. The themes that are meant for WordPress and Joomla look very nice and very professional, but sadly they know how to charge you for it. You can get them cheap through a subscription, but if you want to buy it exclusively, you pay between 600 and 1200 dollars.

MamboHut
www.mambohut.com
Don’t let the name confuse you. Yes they have templates for Mambo, but they also have a lot of templates for Joomla. And whey I say a lot, I mean a LOT. Also nice is the fact that they have a lot of administrator templates that will make the admin part a little nicer. One of the oldest template sites around.

Template Monster
www.templatemonster.com
Without a doubt the biggest template website out there. They have templates for just about any kind of open-source platform, and they have a great way of presenting them. It’s a very commercial site though, so prepare to grab your wallet.


5 best open source CMS systems

March 4th, 2009 | Posted under The Internet, Web Hosting Tips | No Comments »

There are a lot of open source content management systems out there that will really help you build a good website. The problem is that they all have different qualities, and if you don’t know what to choose, you might just make the wrong decision. Although it’s not like you’re spending a lot of money on the software, it’s open-source. You will spend a lot of time on it though and it would be a shame to discover that you have made a mistake when your site is almost done. Let me help you on the way.

Joomla
www.joomla.org

Joomla is a CMS that you’ve heard me talk about a couple of times in these articles. Not because I’m a fan of Joomla (because I don’t like the idea of the whole world being run by one CMS, way too vulnerable), but because it’s so incredibly powerful and easy to use. There are a lot of good extensions, some cost money, some don’t. Joomla will surely make you a good website if you’re going to have a lot of content and you want to do more with it than just display it.

Mambo
www.mambo-foundation.org

Mambo can be considered Joomla’s bigger brother. Well actually, maybe more of a father. A group of developers who didn’t like the way things were going at Mambo headquarters, left, and started their own CMS, called Joomla. Both are still being developed and are very much alike, however Joomla has a bigger user base.

WordPress
www.wordpress.org

This is another very powerful CMS that you’ve heard me talking about. It is very often mistaken with a simple blogging tool, because it’s also a blogging service. Yes, you can use it as a blogging platform, but it’s way more powerful, if you know how to configure it well. Lot’s of extensions, some free, some not.

Typo3
www.typo3.com

Probably the most flexible and powerful open-source content management system there is. Nice, but the problem is that it’s also a lot harder to install and a lot harder to configure. If you know what you’re doing, it’s a very nice CMS. But if you need an open-source CMS because you have no programming skills, steer far from it.

PHP-Nuke
www.phpnuke.org

A brilliant CMS if your focus is going to be on news delivery. It’s very easy to install, very easy to use, but not the easiest CMS to customize. If you’re happy with a nice template and standard functionality, go for this one, it will make you happy.
