West Coast Wine Network: Old Version

West Coast Wine Network: Old Version

WCWN JoomlaThis is the old version of the website that uses the Joomla CMS. I had redone this site numerous times while trying to keep up with the changes in the Joomla API. Much like WordPress, the Joomla CMS has recently gone through a fairly radical update, which has disabled many of the previous addon features that you can build into your theme. Honestly, I found so many glitches and technical difficulties with Joomla that I came to the conclusion that I didn’t want to mess with it anymore. They were workable but I just didn’t feel like they were worth the effort for this site. The darned Photo Gallery that I have installed on the site is behaving very strangely. If I had to keep the Joomla site up and running, I would simply change out the gallery for a new one. I got hit really badly with a redirect malware earlier in the year. That took me awhile to clean up. Bottom line is the problems with this CMS were taking up too much of my time and I love the simplicity of the WordPress CMS. It also fits what the site is trying to do very well.
