I've been reading a lot about the lastest Google search reasults and found that 50% of the searches for local businesses are done on mobile devices. That being said I just revamp this site to a more responsive structure.
If you view the site using Chrome browser then srink the the view port to the left or right the site will respond. Give it a try.
For the past few days I've been digging into the great security features available in Admin Tools by AkeebaBackup. Here's what I have found so far.
Most of the attacks have come from other countries. Sometime they try all out attack and others try to be sneaky by making attempts infrequently and maybe one or two times from the same IP address.
Here is an example of how a bot will try logging in to the administration area and failing - Reason: Login failure (Username: admin -- Password: 987456)
So, leaving a Joomla Superusers' log in name as "admin" give an attacker half of your security defense. I can not stress enough to change the username to anything other than admin.
The next and most important thing to do is create a very strong password. A minimum of 8 characters with a few number and capital letter will go a long way.

Re-Launch of Rotundo Developers, LLC running on Joomla power.
This site was originally designed by myself and Abacab Designs back 2009. Re-lauching staic HTML site to run on Joomla can be a little challenging but following my conversion plan it's now some thing I really enjoy.
If you have a HTML static site that you would like to update on your schedule contact me about turning it into a Joomla powered website, estimates are free.
Coming in 2013, Tri-County Web Consulting will be offering an affordable option to get your business or organization on the internet.
Launching a website can be an expensive project for a small business but a necessary one. A web site should solve a problem for your business such as, less calls for directions, provide information on new products, etc.
Your web site needs to be designed and developed to be an employee that works 24/7 for the business.
I am offering a Joomla developed web site which can be paid monthly to eliminate a large cash layout to get a website online.
The monthly fee will include:
- Professionally designed website powered by Joomla Content Management System (CMS)
- Site Hosting for the website files
- Registration of one domain name
Do you own your personal domain name Well if you are in business, planning to go into business or in a position where your reputation is on the line, then you MUST register your name.
For instance I own JohnOrzell.com. I don't have a website to go along with it.
So where am I going with this? For instance you own a business and believe it or not, you can not make all your customer happy 100% of the time. That one customer buys your name and puts a website online to attack you.
Since he/she own yourname.com there's not to much you can do without spending money to try and have the site taken down or get yourname.com back.
I have made it very convenient for you to grab yourname.com domain, before someone else does on the Client Portal page.

J.J. Sullivan Construction Company has been converted from a HTML designed site to a Joomla powered site.
This is currently being handled by password protecting directories on the server. The new process will be controlled by Joomla's built in ACL security rights extension. Each vendor will login to the sight and will have access to only the files needed by their company.
To accomplish this I will be using a Joomla extension developed by Phoca Web Building.
As each vendor logs in they will be directed to a page listing files that they were given access to. While on the page they can download the latest version of a file.
This is how a Joomla developed website can provide a solution to a businesses needs and increase productivity.
As a long time Joomla developer in Connecticut I'm really digging the prospects of version 3.0.
The under lying template code in 3.0 takes a lot of the weight off the designers shoulders because it utilizes HTML5 and CSS3. What does this mean? Your site will look pretty good across multiple devices, especially smart phones.
Why does everyone get all jazzed up over that? Well consider that 50% of Google's local searches are executed on smart phones I would say it's important. If your business is located in a commercial building I'm sure you would like to have a customer in the store because your website on their phone was easy to read.
Developing your current into a Joomla powered site that mobile devices display with ease must sound a little intriguing, right? Contact me and I'll take a look at your current website and we can work out a plan that fits your budget.
Over time one of the first questions I get from a client is "How much is it going to cost?" well here's a tool that I hope helps answer that question.
There are several variables that can add or subtract from the cost of a site. Do you have a branding already and need a custom website to match or are you starting from scratch? What component's will you need to make the site help your business? Are there free or lost cost extensions to meet those needs? Basically only you can answer how much the website will cost.
After out initial meeting and discussing your individual website needs can I make a more accurate estimate. So use the Website Cost Estimator as a guide only.
Been developing a method to convert static HTML sites into highly usable and expandable Joomla site. So far the results have been great. The differences aren't earth shattering but the Joomla version is developed using much more modern design practices. Which reduces the images that need to be downloaded and offers more options that can solve the business objectives of a company or organization.
One site for example is Salem Farms Campground. Here's the current site:
Here's the Joomla version:
