Marketing and advertising is an expensive business. Well, it used to be before the internet came along.
More companies then ever are realising that by investing in a good website they can reach a mass market which, in the medium to long terms, is much better value then advertising in print. As this article points out, an ad even in a local paper might set you back €1,800.00 for a one off add, which makes it very expensive to keep your company in the public spotlight.
Well the budget came out today - I havent had time to look at it much myself but I saw a quote on one website and thought it would make a great T-shirt:
"My Jaysus, we're properly banjaxed, now"
Think it'd sum up the national mood quite well, sher if you can't laugh etc ...
As any web designer will testify - Internet Explorer 6 or IE6 - can be a very flaky piece of software, it just seems to render websites in it's own special way, totally differently to all the other web-browsers, requiring far more hacks to Style Sheets to get things working.
Well, it looks like a Web designer in Normay might have spelt the end of IE6! Going to his site using IE6 and you're advised to upgrade your browser and you're given links to all the other software you can use, well this has spread like wildfire across Norway and is now spreading further across the web!
According to Sitepoint these are going to be the next BIG web trend.
Rightly or wrongly I'm not a big fan of drop down menus normally, I know I know we have some on our site! but these new Mega Drop Downs can look very stylish, well in some cases, and more importantly they actually look as if they'll make it easier to navigate sites!!! which is where old fashioned drop downs fall ... eh ... well down really.
Here's a nice example of them in action:
Q: Is there an easy way to get Drupal 6 to generate structured page breadcrumbs?
A: Yes, install the 'Menu Breadcrumb' module and configure your menus to mirror your website's page structure.
Breadcrumbs in Drupal can be very confusing, by default Drupal doesn't do much with breadcrumbs and there are loads of (sometimes confusing) modules to help with generating them based on all sorts including custom Taxonomy trees and the like.

When you try to install new modules onto a Drupal setup hosted on a Blacknight.ie Unix hosting plan do you get errors like the following about the installed PHP version?
"This module requires PHP version 5.2.* and is incompatible with PHP version 4.4.7."
If so don't panic, your hosting paln will almost certainly have PHP 5.2 installed and configured, all you have to do is to go to the control panel and disable PHP 4.x support, this will then allow PHP 5.2.x to shine through and should keep your modules from complaining!
