I’ve been working on moving my site to a new server and upgrading the guts of it to a full fledged Content Management System (CMS) named Joomla. I’m really impressed by Joomla and the functionality it provides. It has a lot of plugins to it that knit together various web applications into one convenient system. Modules that I’ve currently added are:

  • WordPress blogging software which now contains the contents of my personal blog and Japan trip blog
  • Gallery2 image gallery which allows users to comment on photos
  • Joomlaboard forum
  • Polls
  • Banner ads for Google and Amazon

I’m also eyeing the install of a few other modules as well

  • Google Maps
  • Wiki
  • Battlefield 2 Leaderboard

There’s still a few more design tweaks that I want to make to the site and I have to recover all the user comments, but for the most part, I’m pretty happy with it.

Please answer the poll, leave a comment, or make a forum post and let me know what you think of the new site.
