WordPress Aspires to be ImpressCMS with New SEO Features

imBlogging Meta Tags

WordPress recently announced some new advanced SEO features for its Business Plan subscribers. I smiled as I read this, because these are features that have been available to all ImpressCMS users for quite some time.

While there are always debates over which meta tags to populate, which ones are relevant, and which ones make no sense, the meta description always seems to be one that is widely accepted and used.

Dear Webmaster, Google says "We can't access all your JS and CSS files" - Really!

Google robots messageYesterday, webmasters around the globe were getting emails that looked like they were from Google, which many overlooked or treated with suspicion. I did at first - then, I signed into my Google Webmaster Tools (GWT) account and found they were, indeed, from Google.

Building Bridges - What's on the Other Side?

Bridge and fog

I just returned from a vacation with my family to California, where I hoped to capture one of those beautiful photos of the Golden Gate Bridge. However, what we found was a cloud-draped bridge, with only a few glimpses of the structure. Even cloaked in clouds and mist, with the other shore invisible, the view was spectacular and we still ventured across safely.

While I was going through the photos we took, I realized how much life and this project resemble this bridge.

Real Good Code and Code Standards

CodeA while ago, there were some emails going around between @fiammybe, @MekDrop, @eyekeeper and I about being able to test new commits against a given code standard to avoid unnecessary work later on. This is a good question and practice, as is testing the code before integrating it into a development branch leading up to a release. There are tools that facilitate both of these processes - applying code standards and testing - and most modern IDE provide ways to do these things. However, such tools are only guides, as are the standards themselves.

Code Standards Are Good

When we first adopted our coding standards, we did so for several reasons:
