Cross-browser testing
Some nasty surprises await those who don't test a website design in multiple browsers. It's not enough to just make sure your site 'looks Ok' in Firefox and Internet Explorer; the recent explosion of tablet devices means that design flaws will be...
Testing tablet website layouts without an iPad
In theory, websites 'should' be tested in multiple browsers across multiple operating systems; in practice, it's not usually feasible to have one of every device and device type available, so your testing options are limited. Fortunately, the desktop...
Joomla tricks - submenu indicator
The built-in menu module in Joomla 2.5 does not offer a way to indicate that a menu item has undisplayed sub-menus but with a little bit of PHP coding we can make it happen.
Moving out - changing web hosts
I've recently moved my web hosting to a different provider and found the migration surprisingly smooth. That doesn't mean you can ignore basic data security practices, but it's nice to know things can go well.
Making the move to Joomla
This site used to be static HTML pages but now uses the Joomla Content Management System (CMS); why the change? There are two different questions here: Why Content Management Systems? The short answer is that they makes life easier. Why Joomla? Because...

Adventures in synchronisation volume 1 - Address book
Although my primary computer has a perfectly acceptable address book I regularly want this information on one of my other devices (tablet, phone other computer, etc). My case might be a bit extreme in terms of the number of devices I use, but the basic...
Debugging Style Sheets with Firefox
Cascading style sheets are an important part of website design but when something is not quite right, it can be tricky to establish exactly what's wrong and where to fix it. The Inspect Element tool in the Firefox browser can help.
System Implementation
Joomla From the website ( ) "Joomla is one of the world’s most popular open source CMS (content management systems). With millions of websites running on Joomla, the software is used by individuals, small & medium-sized businesses, and...
Convincing Joomla that an update exists
The built-in update function introduced in Joomla 2.5 is a great leap forward in simplifying Joomla version maintenance and generally works just fine [1]. Except sometimes, when you know there's a newer version available, but the update checker remains...
Comments as spam
Comments on web pages can be an interesting and valuable channel for communication with your customers, but they can also be a source of polluting spam. Recently I've been getting quite a few almost real looking comments that are actually bait for...
Strange characters just need the right font
One of the great benefits of the internet is its ubiquity. People and organisations from anywhere in the world can not only find but publish content; contributing to the sum of information available to all of us. Even if it's just a blog... Just as not...
Secret to top-ranking search results
Unfortunately there isn't one. I get a fairly regularly stream of emails and web site contact messages from search engine optimisation (SEO) people promising to improve my search results in various magical ways, but a little thought shows why this is...

Having established an ownCloud synchronisation framework to share my contacts and calendar between devices, it makes sense to see what other things I can do with it.

Synchronising calendar details across multiple devices introduces some additional complications beyond the requirement of static data such as contact details.
3D content for web pages
The technology options for displaying 3D content in web pages have evolved over the years with a number of different formats attaining at least temporary popularity but with variable levels of support and maintenance. Here I mean projecting 3D content...
RSS for the rest of us
If you see an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) icon like this  on a web page, it indicates a feed of updated items that you might want to monitor. Unfortunately, your browser may handle these feeds in a way that I find is less-than-useful - I prefer to...
Make Joomla Weblinks open in a new tab
If your Joomla site uses Weblinks and the Smart Search component, any search results that match weblinks will open the link in the current window, regardless of your weblinks configuration. You can fix this with a small template override.
Google Analytics - no thanks
The Google Analytics service provides enhanced traffic analysis services for websites, unfortunately it requires that viewers accept certain cookies or your web site hangs. As a site viewer, there is something you can do about this.
Are we there yet?
