“Content is King.” How many times have you heard it?
It’s paraded around like a map to the holy grail, like some sacred piece of advice that will make all the bricks fall together and reveal the yellow brick road. It’s advice from the wizard, don’t you think? The man behind the curtain spouts out some vague yet wise sounding command and you nod your head, not wanting to say “But I don’t understand, my content is great and yetyet, something is wrong. Something isn’t bringing people to read it.”
Wright is moving right along these days, seeing great improvements to stability as well as some upcoming exciting enhancements (think full LESS support). It's no wonder that powerhouse Joomla company RedComponent, one of the largest Joomla companies in the world (if not THE largest), has decided to adopt Wright for all of their template and project needs!
We had a chance to ask owner Ronni Christiansen a few questions about why his company chose Wright:
You know what’s great about being a freelance developer building Joomla websites? The convenience technology can provide, such as Joomla templates.
You know what’s NOT great about being a freelance developer building Joomla websites? Getting stiffed by a customer. In fact, freelancers everywhere are getting stiffed by their customers (just check out the World's Longest Invoice). You didn’t become a web developer to be in the business of collections. If only there was an equivalent to Joomla templates for getting paid! Although there is no official template, there are in fact specific steps you can take to secure your chances of receiving money when owed.
Here are 7 ways to help you get paid faster:
1) Be Picky
Beautiful Visuals Deserve A Beautiful Website
With this thought in mind, we decided to create Showtime, a Joomla template that allows you to display, classify, and organize a huge amount of visual information. Showtime is the perfect template to showcase great works of photographers, illustrators, videographers, creative people, creative agencies, or freelancers to name a few.
New Joomla Extension Release
Easy Social Icons is the first of many new Joomla Extensions we will release this year. Our Joomlashack Extensions were designed by Joomla Professionals to make running Joomla Sites Easier and more productively. Our Joomla Extensions provide you with the kind of tools, service, and benefits that you WISH you could use in EVERY site you build.
A couple weeks ago we announced the move of The Wright Joomla Template Framework to Github in an effort to make it more accessible and invite collaboration. In addition to opening up and inviting collaboration, we're also expanding our efforts to showcase the work of those who adopt Wright for their site development needs! In this our first Wright Wednesday Developer Showcase we're excited to share a short interview and the work of Dianne Henning, organizer and site developer for Joomla Day Boston.
