Site Update

Major ongoing update for bezzer.co.uk I'm moving away from Joomla despite years of loyal service. There are a number of reasons for this:

  • I feel Joomla suits larger sites better
  • The process to upgrade from 1.5.23 to 1.7 is overcomplicated
  • I need something to do in between job applications
So... Decided I'd give WordPress another shot. I've used it before but not for a few years. Feels the same as before but with a larger version number.
Complaints so far:
  • Haven't found a plugin to import single flickr photo and provide lightbox effect
  • WordPress kept messing my lovely code up! Fixed: TinyMCE Advanced has option to disable this 'feature'
  • Blog style website makes me want to type useless stuff everywhere in order to have more posts...
Positives so far:
  • Much cleaner interface than Joomla (has always been the case really)
  • Easier management of Plugins and Themes
Expect an unusual amount of activity in the next few days as I finish porting over pages from the old site. Once complete I will try to update on a less frequent but regular basis.
