    cascading stylesheets is what makes the page pretty With CSS we can control how certain elements on the page appear on the browser We can specify things like text colour background colour dimensions and more Laravel isn t a front end framework so we won t go into any extra detail on this but if you re interested in this you can view a full list of CSS properties here The back end of a website is pretty much anything that you don t see Form processing authentication content management You don t see these things on the page but they happen in the background They re not easy things to handle either Most web applications require A database to well store data A database wrapper to build and execute queries A routing engine for SEO friendly URLs Form validation wrappers to process form data such as login forms A session handler and or authentication system to handle user sessions A caching solution for performance An encryption library for storing and validating passwords Mailing library to send emails We haven t even gotten started on the functionality of the website itself yet So again what is Laravel Laravel allows developers to concentrate solely on building the website without having to worry about form validation data storage caching etc it is all included in Laravel Because of this development can also be sped up drastically if you utilise the Laravel s power correctly that is The MVC Architecture If you re into the techy side of things Laravel uses the MVC architecture MVC stands for Model The model represents the data in the database and usually allows CRUD create read update delete operations which essentially means that we can pull and push data to and from the database View Simply the

  • Does WordPress have a plugin problem? - Geonet Solutions
    51 of plugins were compatable Since WPMU s findings WordPress have changed the plugin repository to filter out plugins that haven t been updated but the dead plugins still remain The issue that remains with the outdated plugins is although old plugins are hidden there are still plugins listed last updated in 2012 or 2013 These plugins have the potential to become more outdated and could already contain serious security flaws and are still showing up in searches as well as being readily downloaded For example one plugin I found had been downloaded 100 times in the last week in spite of having not been updated in over a year Outdated plugins not only have a compatibility risk there have been six core WordPress updates since 2012 but also a potential security risk associated with older versions of jQuery in plugins and partially deprecated WordPress functions Plugins that no longer exist I built my first ever WordPress site just for fun way back in 2011 One of the features of the site was a star rating review system and I used a plugin called GD Star Rating to add the rating system This plugin is no longer available and has compatibility issues with newer versions of WordPress As such if I were to go back and update the site I would find that my rating system no longer worked WordPress doesn t inform users when a plugin is withdrawn from the repository In the case of GD Star Rating the plugin was retired by the developers who are working on a new package of plugins However if the plugin had been withdrawn due to a serious security vulnerability I would have no way of knowing my site could be at risk Drupal has encouraged other developers to take over support

    rotates somewhere and enjoyed the gimmick Therefore your site must have one But let s face it there s no one knows your company or endeavour quite like you do The most vital stage of any website is right at the inception and in truth it carries on right the way through It s an old adage but having your eyes on the prize really is the difference between a great website and a jumbled mess It s your vision not everyone else s Right from the start you need to figure out exactly what the purpose of your website is It might be to inform to sell or simply entertain Whatever you choose that needs to be at the forefront of your mind from the wireframes right through to the finished product Constantly ask yourself does the website do what I want Does it provide the user with the right experience If your core aim is to sell a product but it takes seven or eight clicks through information infographics and videos to get to the sell page then you ve probably made the process too difficult even if you have pretty awesome information and media If your core aim is to inform make sure that information is easy to read and not let down by colours that aren t easy to read even if they look pretty And if you want to entertain you need to make sure you put the right amount of content on there and not bore people with only one video or hundreds and lose them once they get lost Keeping the end user s experience and your core vision at the forefront of your thoughts and letting that govern every stage of the process will ensure you end up with a really strong

  • Tools we love: Slack - Geonet Solutions
    Nothing really Slack just seems like a better alternative for our purposes The only major downsides to Hangouts are Lack of a native Mac app The majority of our developers use Apple Mac computers for work we re still trying to convince Scott and Duncan to make the switch Without a native app we can t receive notifications and are therefore constantly refreshing Google to make sure nobody is trying to reach us Doesn t support group chats If we want to send a link to three people we have to send three separate messages This makes team discussions impossible on Hangouts What do we love about Slack There are countless awesome features that we love about Slack Here s our top three Integrations We ll talk about this later Channels A channel is a designated chatroom in which you can set a purpose and a topic We re currently talking about how we can use channels productively We re toying with the idea of having a designated channel for each project we take on Until then here s what our channel list looks like File Sharing Slack allows us to upload and share files with teammates with ease for free Previously we d be emailing across attachments Not any more What are Integrations Integrations allow you to integrate external services into your Slack chatroom For example we utilise Trello to track project statuses with ease and it works great With Slack s integrations we managed to hook up our Trello board to the trello channel so whenever a card is created moved edited or deleted the Slackbot will broadcast a message to the channel notifying everyone Slack also offers integrations for Github Google Drive Dropbox Mailchimp and much much more To view a full list click here It doesn
