Magento Community Edition 2.0.7

Posted by Ohame on June 7, 2016No Comments

When you ask what’s the best CMS, some users will say Joomla, others Drupal, most will say WordPress. But there’s no controversy when it comes to the best online store solution. Magento is it.

This e-commerce platform contains all the functionality you’ll ever need from an online shop, along with all the configuration options you may ever want to tweak to model your store to any business or project requirement.

It may be a little hard to get Magento working on your server, but if you check and prepare for the minimum server requirements Magento will spare you from real costly store management fees Web design companies might charge.

There’s an all-encompassing administration panel included, where all the settings reside, settings that you may ever think off or never thought off.

Everything can be managed from this backend, starting with client accounts, to invoices, and up to taxes and currencies.

But the admin panel plays a double role, allowing administrators to manage the company’s actual business as well, not the products up for sale.

Reports can be generated from the backend, inventories can be managed, a basic website and blog can also be put in place, Magento providing all these tools by default.

And if something’s missing, there are free and commercial extensions and themes available for tweaking the store even more.

The IP2Location PHP Module allows developers to create servers-ide JavaScript applications capable of connecting to IP2Location databases.

The class can send an IP address to the database and retrieving the desired geographical information about it.

This data can then be used inside a website to build different geo-aware features, adapting the site’s interface and behavior based on the user’s real-life geographical location.

The module is a valuable asset if building applications that deal with traffic analysis, local currencies, digital rights management, spam filtering, etc..

The IP2Location PHP Library works with both versions of the IP2Location database, free and commercial, and also with both versions of the IP protocol, IPv4 and IPv6.

Drupal 8.1.2

Posted by Ohame on June 7, 2016No Comments

Drupal is part of the CMS trifecta alongside Joomla & WordPress, rotating the title of best CMS amongst each other for the past 10-15 years.

Used for popular websites ranging from the White House’s online presence and to weather.com, the CMS can be used for any kind of site, ranging from personal sites to large Intranets and online shops.

A big part of its appeal is its huge database of free or commercial themes and modules, allowing non-technical users to create websites without too much hassle on their part.

Drupal can be setup and ready to use within minutes, thanks to its easy to follow installer, and once everything ready, an administration panel can be accessed by the admin where he can then start creating his website.

Here he can customize the site’s overall settings, add pages, install modules, switch between themes, track website usage, and various other more.

The CMS supports multi-lingual installations, and the community has contributed top of the line modules for running fully-equipped online stores, social networks, and discussion forums on Drupal’s core.

If you’ve been working in Web development and haven’t heard about Drupal, it may be a hint that you’re really not that good at your job.
