custom-code.jpg

Joomla! and Wordpress are great content management systems and offer a wide variety of features that should cover most of the usage scenarios when you employ a CMS to build a website. If that’s not enough for your needs, you can choose from thousands of free and paid extensions (or plugins) that will, depending on type, either add that one small feature you need (that “Share” button for your audience to share some useful information from your website on their social media accounts), or completely transform your website’s CMS into a full-fledged social network, or news portal.

It was several years ago now that Google announced that we had passed the tipping point whereby the number of Mobile searches had taken over that of Desktop searches, stating…

JCH Optimize is a plugin that’s available for Joomla!, WordPress, Magento, and Drupal and is used to optimize your site. What does optimization mean in this context? Well, to make a long story short, it automates certain actions like combining CSS and JavaScript files to get your site working faster. I use it on a Joomla! website I created and maintain, https://sabaton.pl The website uses many graphics, extensions, and custom CSS/JavaScript, so optimization is key here.
