Joomla LogoWe have completed our upgrade to Joomla 1.5 from Joomla 1.0. While this can be a complicated process, we felt this was an important step for a few reasons.


  1. Joomla 1.5 is a stronger, more secure platform than Joomla 1.0
  2. Many extension (component, module, plugin) developers are working exclusively with Joomla 1.5
  3. Many template designers latest works are for Joomla 1.5

If you currently are running a Joomla 1.0 site and are interested in upgrading to Joomla 1.5 we have good news for you.


While there is a commercial product for the Python development platform called Webware, the term has sprouted up as shorthand term for Web Application or Webapp. In fact, Wikipedia (as of this writing) defines webware thusly:
In software engineering, a Web application or webapp is an application that is accessed via Web over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. It is also a computer software application that is coded in a browser-supported language (such as HTML, ASP, PHP, Perl, etc.) and reliant on a common web browser to render the application executable.

Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of a client, sometimes called a thin client. The ability to update and maintain Web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity. Common Web applications include Webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis, discussion boards, Weblogs, MMORPGs and many other functions.

SonicFog was early to recognize the advantage of webware and the trend toward web based applications. With webware, no longer are you enslaved to your office for the technologies you need. You and your staff are free to collaborate from wherever you are. No more, "Oh, I left that inventory report back at the office." SonicFog can help you move your business processes out of the office and online where secure access can be granted to the key members of your staff, as well as you clients and vendors, if necessary. Use this link to see how affordable webware can be. Read more...
SonicFog teams with Joomla to offer affordable power for your website.
Each web development project has it's own set of requirements. We make extensive use of JoomlaSonicFog Web Development CMS on over half of our websites because the inherent functionality saves hours of development time. This savings can be passed along to our clients and increases our production capacity. Often times a project has requirements beyond the core capabilities of the Joomla CMS. In these cases we can proceed in one of three directions.
  • Look for a third party Joomla component.
  • Develop a custom Joomla component, in house.
  • Develop a custom site outside of Joomla.
This displays the advantages of a SonicFog solution to your website needs. We will build you the most affordable solution that meets or exceeds your developmental requirements. If a customized software solution is needed we have the skills to do that. If we can save you money using the Joomla CMS we offer that as well.

Now here is a gift for you! The SonicFog staff will be writing a series of Joomla development articles designed to help you better understand the Joomla CMS. We'll be starting with topics around the Joomla Administrator. Some people have asked, "Why give away the secret sauce?" Well we want to help our clients have a better experience with their website. Learning to use Joomla is like learning to use any other application, except Joomla is a web application. It's pretty straight forward but there can be some complications. If you have a good place to turn to for reference it will help make the Joomla experience a better one. This equates to less wasted time for your team and less calls for site maintenance and support. Keep your eyes here for the upcoming reference articles.

SonicFog launches unique website proposal process.

SonicFog launched our new online web development process to help our clients get through the proposal process quickly and effectively. Potential clients will answer a series of questions with images to provide examples of styles and funtionality. At the end of the interview, the client will have automatically created a mutually acceptable proposal. The proposal will include a deadline for SonicFog to produce the deliverables. The client will then have the option to chose a payment plan and a payment method before accepting or rejecting the proposal. See the process in action .
Project ManagementNew system enables clients to login and track the progress of their development project.
It has been our goal for a long time to enable our clients transparent visability into the progess of the projects that mean so much to them. This is an exciting announcement as we are now able to fulfil that vision.

MonticelloOur visionary third president set the standard for innovative design in his day. While we here at SonicFog do not pretend to be at the Jeffersonian level, we do encorporate many of Thomas Jefferson's values into our work.

While most people of the day kept time by the sun, Jefferson had a clock in each room. Likewise we understand the value of time and treat yours with respect.

Jefferson kept four or five books open on a carousel on his desktop. The precursor to the modern tabbed browsing, if you will. This way he could read many books at the same time. Like Jefferson, we try to stay ahead of the trends and take in as much valuable information as possible. This way we can be of more value to you, our clients, in the areas of technology and marketing.

Jefferson was expert in many fields. He was an excellent farmer, scholar, writer, designer, president, and oh by the way, he wrote the Declaration of Independance. We too, while falling way short of Jefferson, maintain expertise in many fields from web design and application development, to search engine optimization and business consulting.

Let's see all we need to do now is craft 10 amendments to the constitution (The Bill of Rights), buy some land (The Louisiana Purchase) and commission an expedition (Lewis and Clark) and we too might carve out a place in this world's history.

Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing. ...Thomas Jefferson
Imagine my delight when a web development conversation started up on a recent flight. The gentleman next to me was a guitar player in a band and had recently started a business selling musical instruments that he and his partners were making. His next task: build the company website. I asked him if he'd ever developed a website before and he said, "No, but I have a book on SEO." Read more...
