Today CasinoBeach.com got a new design and upgraded software, from Mambo to Joomla. Probably sounds like Chinese unless you happen to know the bleeding edge of the open-source movement. If you’ve read anything at all about Content Management Systems (CMS), you’ll probably know at least three things: CMS are the most exciting way to do business, CMS can be really, I mean really, complicated and lastly Portals are absolutely, outrageously, often unaffordably expensive. Open Source has changed all that.
Casino Beach is developed using the best-of-breed CMS portal software, which is available for download FREE. Then a I purchased a template from a German designer and set about customizing it and adding the Brands of Casino Beach. So far I’d say that I’ve invested less than 8 hours in the project.
So far so good, the software runs like a charm and there’s an excellent support community available to assist with modifications and code hacking issues. Content always remains king, for which I’ll be adding Gambling related information and Casino Guides etc…
I’d like to think of a nice slogan for the site, and have had the old beach boys song going through my head today, trying to recall a phrase or think of something catchy and cool. Every time I try to remember the words for the song, I get the part about a place called “Kokomo” and then I get confused with another old song. Maybe it’ll come to me, but if you have any suggestions, please send them or comment.
