Traditional Website Vs CMS Website

Written by L. Streete
The differences are almost unnoticeable when looking at a traditional website and a CMS (Content Management System) website side by side, except that the CMS website will have fresher and more up to date content. The real differences lie under the bonnet, in how the sites are updated and accessed by you.

Microsoft Release Internet Explorer 8 (IE8)

Written by L. Streete
Microsoft has released its latest web browser in the shape of Internet Explorer 8. The company's last launch was back in 2006 when IE7 was made available.
The new browser comes equipped with many new features and more importantly for you website owners and developers it provides facilities that allow your cascading style sheets to actually display your web pages in a more truer visual appearance where as in the past IE5, IE6 and IE7, there were many problems which resulted in the common, "IE Hacks", to make web pages work better for your users.

Is your website ready for IE7?

Written by L. Streete

Is your website ready for the soon to be released Internet Explorer version 7 (IE7)?

This will be the big question for alot of websites over the coming months...

With the iminent release of IE7 alot of websites will experience problems in how they are displayed. The Cascading style sheets (CSS) used and hacked in websites to achieve good layouts in IE6 and below, will no longer work for IE7.

We have now added a commenting component to our blog, so you can now leave comments and thoughts on the topics we post in this section.

We hope you enjoy this new feature and interact with us.

Again ecommerce bucks the trend of doom and gloom of the resession. If theres one thing we always advise clients at LAS Design is that if you have a company that you can either sell your products online or increase enquiries or leads through having a professional website, then really you shoud have been online yesterday or updated your website with all the features you will need to get the most out of your website online! Yesterday the BBC released another article confirming what we already see with our clients who trade online. The figures are still good and are on the up at Christmas 2008.
