Joomla! has long enjoyed the reputation of being one of the leading CMSs. Whether you are running a blog, a corporate website, a news site or a site of any other genre, Joomla! has the ability to suit your needs and power your website.
However, of late, Joomla! has lost some of its market share – particularly due to the rise of WordPress.
Sometime back, Joomla! released its version 2.5 (which has already had a security update by now). As with any product, Joomla! is also trying hard to shed its older image of being the geek-friendly CMS and contest WP for its crown of being the end-user’s CMS. The latest release, version 2.5, has taken many strides towards that strategy. In fact, it is the first major release after version 1.5 (the interim ones such as 1.7 were short-term releases).
In this article, we shall compare Joomla! 2.5 with WordPress. But before going any further, let us catch a glimpse of what Joomla 2.5 has to offer.Read More
Using multiple fonts in the same design can get tricky if you don’t have knowledge of basic theories and good practices. In my opinion pairing fonts is one of the most difficult parts of the design process. If you have no idea where to begin, then this article will guide you through the knowledge you need for now. Browsing the internet for tips about pairing fonts can get confusing, because there are many practices designers use. Therefore I researched a lot in the past couple of weeks and I will present you what is, in my opinion, the right way of doing this.Read More
Hello everyone :) Here we are again with a few more funny things to share.
First of all, I want to say that we’ll be improving this section and our funny content a lot, and the good part is that we won’t be limited to comic strips anymore (tip: how often are you pinning stuff?). Needless to say that after a whole week of working hard you deserve those funny moments.
Today our strips will talk about crazy clients ideas and a misunderstanding over wireframes.
I’m pretty sure you have been requested to do a crazy .gif or a malicious script. So how to deal with it?
And you remember that client who thought that those wireframes were the whole website, even after you explained that a wireframe is a concept validation tool?
Well, let’s laugh at this then!Read More

PayPal is definitely the most well-known online user payment service in the world. With its start somewhere in 2000 thanks to X.com and Confinity merging, PayPal quickly became a leader of the market and expanded very fast among eBay users. That is probably why PayPal was bought by eBay in 2002 for just under $1.5 billion.
But PayPal means much more than that today. Tens of millions of users tend to pay with PayPal faster than with their credit card. The company functions as an acquirer and processes payments for online vendors, auction sites and many commercial users – all these for a small usage fee. With such a reputation to handle, we might surely ask ourselves how likely it is for PayPal to be the best payment processor for our online services. If you own a design agency, I am sure you have thought of this at least once.Read More
As bloggers, we all are aware of the importance of comments. While it is true that some blogs/websites tend to disable comments entirely, those are special instances where the websites do not essentially require comments. However, in general, comments form an integral part of any blog, be it a personal one or a magazine site. After all, what good is any info unless it provokes a healthy discussion?
All blogging platforms (including WordPress) come with native support for some sort of comment mechanism which seems to suffice for most bloggers. But sometimes, users may require some dedicated or specialized comment mechanism. This is where third-party commenting systems come in handy.Read More
