Website Facelift

We have all heard the expression ‘cobbler’s shoes’ although when I quote some well known expressions to my teenage children they look at me like I am speaking a foreign language!, we have finally found some time to give our own website a ‘facelift’

We practice what we preach so our website is CMS based so the majority of work was with the new template and design and we carried all our content across, this is the beauty of CMS based websites, many times we see users produce a new website and as they have a lot of information they lose their history which can be a very good business resuorce and have the added bonus of bringing traffic.

Anyway jumping off our soapbox we hope you enjoy the new design.

Joomla or WordPress ?

We are big fans of Joomla the Content Management System on the web but we also like WordPress and currently they are the two leaders in CMS but we believe in ‘horses for courses’ and personally we prefer Joomla for website development and WordPress for blog setup, however we have see some very nice development work that allows WordPress to work well as a website CMS.

Both have great communities behind them and a great wealth of plug in modules offering some clever enhanced functionality.

Either way Bluewave are happy to have a foot in both camps.
