The Webmasters FAQ outlines the nature of acceptable questions for this site: researching available solutions and providing anecdotal advice falls outside the purpose of this StackExchange site, so this type of question would be better-suited to chat or another discussion forum. That being said, there are a variety of free and open source content management ...

Content Management Solutions (CMS) are platforms you can install on your web server that allow you to choose or create a theme and begin adding content to your website. CMS solutions are great for blogs, news sites, and basic corporate or informational websites where the intent is to have pages with mostly text, links and images on them. For example ...

I think the best way would be to integrate the shop in the current site (therefor under the same domain). SEO: One domain for both would strengthen that domain (all links lead to this domain, so they are not splitted between info site domain and shop site domain). Usability: Visitors could switch seamlessly between info pages about the company and the shop,...

No. The canonical element is supposed to resolve duplicate content issues on your site stemming from multiple URLs that pull up the same content. Telling the search engines to go to two different places off the same page totally defeats the purpose. My guess is the company is having some issues internally. It might be their CMS builds composite pages from ...

Bruteforce hashes You could bruteforce the hash that is stored in the database. WordPress uses phpass for hashing. Per default, WordPress does not use blowfish or similar, but just md5 with an iteration count of 8192. If you just want to find really bad passwords, bruteforcing is certainly feasible. But I would consider this a rather big violation of ...

First, this isn't really quite a CMS question(except where maybe you'd be looking for a plugin related to the things I mention below). Roughly speaking your CMS generally doesn't care too much what your content is. It's more responsible for what to do with it, eg. organize into categories, generate listing pages, etc. The overall reason PDFs don't display ...

The intelligence of the blocker is down to whatever extension or software the user is using. Some will simply block adsense, while others may be configured to read a white list, or black list configuration. Typically a site with its own ad-network shouldn't be a problem unless the site is used by hundreds of thousands of people, then you may have people ...

There's really no way to be politically neutral on this unless you choose to exclude both China and Taiwan from your site. If you don't want to offend the Chinese visitors, then you'll need to represent Taiwan as a province of China. If you don't want to offend the Taiwanese visitors, then you need to represent Taiwan as an independent state. However, there ...

Yes they both matter. Some CMS are more Search-Engine Optimizable than others, so if we think the amount of work as fixed (as in a fixed-budget project), you can reach higher rank and thus more visibility. In practice this mean that a less SEO-proficient person can be used to keep a site updated, as he will have to handle less parameters, or that the ...

I disagree with the notion that most sites don't use a CMS, particulary given the global reach of Wordpress, and the selection of Open/Closed Source CMS available, and the obviously successful business models. If you're serious about running and managing a website then a CMS is essential IMHO. If you don't want to use one the simplist way to approach the ...

To answer your question: no, it should not pose a problem for SEO. Why not - given that ashx has nothing to do with images, you ask? Because of the MIME type being sent with the file header. The .png file ending is actually not what determine what the browser has to interpret, but rather the file headers of the HTTP request. The file headers sent when the ...

You should use a CMS when you want an all ready developed platform to manage contents (for the most) and you've usual (I mean common) and not too specific need. You should use a framework when you want to build your own, specific purpose, platform. Hence, you need a base to start your web app/website with, without "reinventing the wheel" (so have a built-in ...

The reason that boilerplate HTML5 is suggested for a resume/personal page is that it's being assumed that you aren't going to be doing large amounts of content addition/subtraction as you go along. HTML5/CSS3 can get pretty fancy w/ minimal effort and if you're a just dedicating your attention to 1 or 2 pages (resume site) it makes sense to put a large ...

We have exactly the same issue - this is based on specific browser behavior. I have found Fire Fox, IE and Chrome to all give different results. If memory serves well: IE gives <p> tags Fire Fox gives a double <br/> Chrome uses a <div/> tag I have a ticket filed with Customer Support about this, but as of now, I still don't have a ...

I can't think of a single good reason for doing what you describe. (Caveat: we obviously don't know exactly what your dev was thinking.) Even if the two "sub-sites" somehow had such different requirements(eg. for the templates) that they'd need this much segregation, WordPress has multi-site capabilities that could break them up under a single ...

There are several PHP microframeworks that allow you to create a simple application with "pretty URLs" by defining the available routes: Slim Flight Limonade Glue For example, this short Limonade app would respond to requests at the root domain (example.com/) and at the specified route (example.com/hello): <?php require_once 'vendors/limonade.php'; ...

You can see an example Here http://chicagos.co This website has all the keywords and stuff like that, but it does not appear on google even if you type the domain, check the source code. chicagos.co doesn't appear in the SERPs because you are redirecting it to another domain!? chicagos.co does a 301 redirect to chicagospizza.co chicagospizza.co then does a ...

Any used framework under the hood has no effect on the SEO. What it matters SEO wise is the front-end (on Site SEO), and the off-site SEO. Generally any structural, mark-up, content changes have their own effect on SEO. Such changes can be done even with no underlying technology change. For sure changing framework can't affect off-Site SEO. For on-site, if ...

I know Zope is an application server written in python that is centered around fully object oriented model Plone is a CMS built upon Zope that uses this object oriented architecture to take full advantage of the underlying architecture for defining it's content types. I've even read about an extension that can take an UML model definition (a class diagram ...

HTML/CSS template would be best, seeing as though the main guts of the CMS are going to be pulled out anyway. Using a CMS in this case would be a greater hinderance than not. Also, have you considered using research online to help develop your own aesthetic design abilities? Art is very similar to programming in that it follows a certain pattern of rules, ...

I also see 5 lines, and the smallest I can re-size the field to is 3 lines. I think you will need to file an enhancement request with SDL Customer Support to get the functionality you desire.

so that they are discouraged from mauling the content to their own contempt What makes you think you're even in a position to do this? I'm not sure I see what the issue is, other than that you're not letting go of the project; it's not your site. It sounds like you were contracted to build this in such a way that the client would be able to edit the ...

I can definitively tell you that it's not a good idea to use a custom CMS. I've worked in a web agency in the past (late in 2006) where we've build a custom cms that we deploy for many client. From the beginning it was a really good idea because current developper really know the cms, we can do every thing we want in every way we want. But, time passing, ...

I have used moodle for a while, it is an open-source CMS that should provide all that you need.

Most ad blockers block 3rd party content from domains that are known to host ads. If you are using an ad server to host non-ad images, your images will got blocked whenever an ad blocker is used. I have not run across an ad server that does not use any 3rd party requests. Ads are typically served via 3rd parties so that: You don't have to deal with ...

I'm not sure that this is even possible. When you select your password, it's stored hashed in database. There's no reverse enginering when comes to hash algorithms. In my experience, script for password strenght is located in www.example.com/wp-admin/js/password-strength-meter.js, and this is the link to it. You can change levels and percentage for ...

All the answers suggested I would do as well. If you want another level of security I would enable Apache Basic Authentication http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/howto/auth.html with a username/password on your admin URL within Joomla (make sure that this URL is https accessible only). This is done within your httpd.conf file whereby you generate a ...

Create a new document file like file.txt (In most OS you can do that by clicking on right button) and edit the extension from file.txt to file.xml or sitemap.xml, whatever you want. Add your all URL's in simple line. No need to add XML sitemap tags like <loc> <url> etc. Just plain absolute URL name like google use on their sitemap Upload your ...
