Joomla Tip of the Day: Reorganizing your image files!

Image files
So you've had a site for a really long time, like super long, and you've assigned your promising young intern to some simple tasks. Shouldn't take too long, maybe one hour max. Well, two hours later your intern comes into your office looking completely exhausted and hating his/her life. He/she comes to you explaining how they couldn't find any of the right pictures easily. The company folder was empty and the logo was found in some random folder named 'a'. Maybe it's time for some spring cleaning.

5 Signs It’s Time for a Social Media Manager

5 Signs It’s Time for a Social Media Manager
Do any of these sound like you?
  1. You don’t know what a #hashtag is
  2. You haven’t updated Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest/<insert social media channel here> since the day you opened the account
  3. You have a blog but haven't updated in several months
  4. You didn’t know that updates could be scheduled

A look at Dash, docsets for developers

A look at Dash, docsets for developers

Recently, I read (shared on our Facebook page) the article Productivity Tips for Developers over on the RocketTheme blog.   If you’ve been a reader for awhile, I am always looking for ways to improve productivity.  In this article, there were some great tips and reminders for developers, especially if you work remotely.  One that I often forget is BREAKS!  Yes, I know, it seems obvious, to take a few minutes away to allow thoughts to gel and ideas to form but sometimes, I just get so caught up.

The article capped off the great tips, with a few of the members of the RocketTheme  team (if you don’t know RocketTheme, you might want to check out their templates and extensions) listing out a few tools that they find helpful.  One such tool is Dash.  I’d not heard of it before and anything with the word “dash” in it, I have to check it out.

Getting items OFF the list

In time management, project management and the like where tasks and commitments are generated there is a need for a tool or process to keep track of them. Many, myself included, write about creating and managing to do lists. 
 
So with all this gathering, listing and prioritizing you probably end up with a pretty hefty list.   Now what if you want to enlist help getting these items done?  What if you are constantly mobile?  And what if your team is virtual?  So how do you get that list down?
