4 Reasons Why Magento Belongs in My eCommerce Portfolio

Use Magento When It's Serious

I don’t always use Magento, but when I do it’s for a serious project. I love Magento, even though I don’t talk about it as much as Prestashop or even Zencart. It’s just not a “go-to” platform for me. Even though I currently manage 6 online stores, Magento is rarely an option due to is robust presence and resource devouring ... Read More »

Flushing That Local DNS

Using the Command Line

Nothing frustrates me more than changing the nameservers in Godaddy or Namecheap just to have 404 errors popping up until the proper propagation time has occurred and my computer has flushed it’s DNS cache.

The Difference Between a WordPress Page and a Post

Developing with Wordpress

I love WordPress and it’s used by almost 76.5 websites on the WordPress.com platform as of this post. It has had more impact around the globle, driving content more than any other open-source CMS platform.

Paid vs Free Forum Software and Scripts

Free vs Paid Forum Software

I was asked earlier about why I would choose to use a free forum script over a paid forum script, or vice versa.

Getting Better Personal Engagement From Facebook

Get More Out of Facebook

Let’s face it, these days on Facebook it’s a very self-centrist world. Every post is about the person posting it or a value they hold dear.
