It’s been some time, since I last blogged. I’ve been working hard on a study of various aspects of better web-site building – SEO, standards, accessibility, strict XHTML 1.0 etc. In doing this, I have again re-vamped my front-page. It’s finally getting to be how I want it. I have also added new parts to the site, including a FAQ on what all the footer buttons and statements are all about. More importantly, my entire site is now XHTML 1.0 Transitional verifiable.

If it wasn’t for the iFrames and opening links into new tabs/windows, it could get to be XHTML 1.0 Strict. These are functions that I don’t want to lose, so it’ll have to remain the transitional flavour, for now.

For quality professional Web designers (especially in the Netherlands), this site, on accessibility guidelines, is very important:-

webrichtlijnen.nl (Nederlands) webrichtlijnen.nl (English)

This site supports the Dutch government in compliance with the administrative arrangements concerning the Web Guidelines. It’s definitely worth a study.

I just re-vamped my front-page banner. I like the new one better but would love feedback. I love playing with graphics almost as much as I love coding 🙂

I have done a long study, over the last days, on the subject of security, particularly in Joomla installations on Apache/PHP/mySQL platforms and I have locked down my site, further, closing any tiny loopholes I found.

Now that I have a much better idea of the risks and solutions to them, I have written an article on the site, describing what Goaheadspace can do to secure a site, as part of our service.

I particularly reference Joomla security FAQ. and Security checklist which I have studied extensively.

Yesterday was Queen’s day in Amsterdam, so I didn’t get much done. Instead, I enjoyed my date with family & friends in the Vondel park.

Nonetheless, I did manage to get some stuff done, since then and I can say that, by fiddling with the PHP core code in Joomla, I did manage to remove one of the warnings that Firefox validator gives on the front page (missing summary attribute in table) . Now, I am left with the 4 minor warnings, generated by the AllVideosReloaded module, which allows playback of the Keynote address.

AFAICS the only other warnings are generated by Google on the pages that display embedded map view and street view. I am pleased to say that W3C validation does not offer these warnings, so the entire site is actually XHTML 1.0 Transitional validated. I proudly boast the logo for this on every page along with the
