Radial Web Newsletter: August 2012
Welcome to the summer edition of the Radial Web Newsletter! Many people are on vacation this time of the year, getting in what they can before September rolls around. Business usually
slows during the month of August, and we are taking advantage of this by focusing on new marketing strategies and researching new technologies.
Designing Websites for Tablets
the early days of website design, it was important to test all web pages in the two main browsers, Internet Explorer and Netscape. Each browser had its specific way of rendering certain objects, and pages needed to be individually tested. As the web evolved,
Netscape died and was reincarnated as Mozilla Firefox. Google Chrome was born, and Safari became a factor with the rebirth of Apple. When creating and testing new web pages, it is important to test in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome, and preferably
even Safari (especially if the pages being designed are for Mac users).
Our company has taken over many websites that are using the WordPress engine for simple informational websites. The reason those websites were originally setup in WordPress was to take advantage of the Content Management System (CMS) that WordPress provides. The CMS allows the website text and content to be edited directly through the website administration panel in a password-protected web page. However, this is often overkill, and it leaves the customer confused and unable to properly maintain their website. WordPress is an extremely useful and intuitive tool -- but only if used properly for its intended purpose as a blog engine.
Stay tuned on the Radial Blog for an in-depth analysis of this in the coming weeks.
