Organising content

Well, that was a mission I have absolutely no intention of ever repeating again. I have migrated posts across from my original blog which was erratic at best, but posts dated back to 2008 and while I initially thought I’d just let them die with the domain they were on, I have decided some of …

Insanely busy day

Well, one brain scheme idea led to another and I ended up not only setting up kimmynz.com for my personal blog, I also ended up migrating another site from Joomla to WordPress and giving that brand a .com domain. My idea I think will be

Migrating Joomla 2.5.x to Joomla 3.0.x

Migrating Joomla in the past was a mission, when I migrated a Joomla 1.5 site to 2.5 I ran in to all sorts of headaches along the way. I was never a fan of Joomla 1.5 and migrating a site to 2.5 nearly put me off Joomla completely. Upon finally getting Joomla 2.5 running I …

Unfortunately a demo version wasn’t available to trial so I thought about it for an hour. I already have Simple …

Upgrading Joomla! 1.7.3 to 2.5.0

If you’ve been following my Twitter, Facebook or Google+ updates this afternoon, you would have noticed I embarked on a mission to upgrade Joomla! 1.7.3 to 2.5.0. All in all the upgrade process went pretty smoothly, initially I had only planned on upgrading a couple of sites which had few extensions installed, due to some …

Podcasting with Joomla

Recently I began playing around with Joomla as I was trying to sort out an upgrade path from Joomla 1.5 to 1.7 for someone. After a few hours of playing with Joomla 1.7 (I actually didn’t like 1.5 that much) I quickly began liking the abilities of Joomla. I installed a clean install on a …
