Stylus, Sass and Less...
Last week as I worked on completing my weblog and portfolio, I cam across a article about CSS Pre-Processors; I have up until this point never used a pre-processor for my web development work. After reading through the article I decided to give one a try, I picked Stylus, they had a online Demo and it all seemed straight forward. You program in the basic structure of your CSS code blocks based on the structure of your website, then the pre-processor will generate the CSS file.Add a comment

I have completed part of the work in porting my website to a mobile format, instead of creating a new website from scratch to a new template, I decided to follow what other people have done is to modify the existing website so that it displays properly on a Tablet via CSS. After looking through several websites and reading up on the topic I decided to give it a try and see how it works, so things have progress very well, I have made a lot of progress on this front.Add a comment

Joomla Template Design Notes
I started using Joomla at version 1.5, by the time it came out version 1 was already long in in the tooth. What drew me to joomla was that you could freely code the template how you wish. All you needed to do was add a few pieces of PHP include and add a JHTML "jdoc" tags where you wanted the website content to appear and you had a template ready to build. All you needed to do was build the required XML and images preview files and you were on your way to creating a template; things have Changed quite a bit with the release of 1.6. Joomla 1.6 was 3 years in the making and included a major code rewrite of Joomla.Add a comment

Creating Tableless Code in Joomla.
It's much easier than I thought, Really... :-)
I can't believe that creating tableless website code in Joomla was easier than I ever imagined. Ever since I setup this blog, I was never happy with the fact that this Joomla was using tables to build the articles and website content for the site. I was searching high and low all over the web for a solution, I knew that there had to be a solution that allows me to create code that did not contain tables. Well I found a solution, and it was right in front of me, after reading the below articles, I realized that the solution was right in front of me, in the very Joomla Install that I have in my web host.Add a comment
