  1. Hi Noose, This thread, in Google Webmaster Help, addresses your question. JohnMu, a googler, sees it this way: If you go down the Ajax route, as Ryan mentions, you might find this website interesting: https://developers.google.com/webmasters/ajax-crawling/docs/getting-started I hope that helps.

  2. Hi Wanze, In my opinion, Retina display is the way to go. If you think about it, Apple is rapidly discontinuing their non-Retina products, and app support for this type of display is increasing at a very fast pace. For example, Photoshop and Sublime Text 2 both support Retina displays. With this in mind, I can't help but think that buying a non-retina MBP at this point in time is buying an outdated product. Now, having said that, the first generation of retina MBPs have come with their fair share of problems, mainly to do with image retention issues and lagging problems. The image retention issue seems to be particularly prevalent, as documented here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4034848?start=0&tstart=0 Truth be told, I don't have a Retina MBP, so my exposure to it is limited to my frequent trips to my local Apple store I do have a 2012 27'' iMac and couldn't be happier with it! I hope that helps, and please keep us posted on your final decision! Claudio
  3. Hi roelof, I think Joss is right here. I think you'd be better off by first getting familiar with the system and only then starting to think about the different approaches you could use to build your site with PW. Joss provides a link to an excellent tutorial that will most definitely help you get acquainted with PW. Here are other resources you might find useful: Small Project Walkthrough: a simple and easy to follow tutorial that will teach you the basic concepts behind PW. ProcessWire's Wiki Page: some very useful articles here as well, including the tutorial Joss mentions. A very brief introduction to PW's API: this is a must read. ProcessWire's directory structure: it's important that you read this one, as it will make your life so much easier! ProcessWire's template files: again, a must read. ProcessWire's API index page: make a bookmark of this one and visit frequently! So, there you have it, a nice list of easy-to-follow articles you can read to get intimate with ProcessWire. Once you've gone through that, you will have a much clearer picture of what you can do with PW and how to do it. I hope that helps. Claudio
  4. Hi roelof, Welcome to the forums. ProcessWire is a very flexible and extremely powerful CMS, and I firmly believe it can be used to build all kinds of websites, from simple portfolio sites to highly complex news sites. In my experience, when it comes to PW, sky is the limit! As netcarver mentions, you need to be a little bit familiar with PHP to make the most out of it, but that doesn't necessarily mean you need to learn PHP before starting to use PW. In fact, I've found that using PW is in and of itself a great way of learning PHP. As long as you're able to understand the most basic PHP concepts, I think you can pretty much learn all the rest as you go. If you get stuck somewhere and need help, the community is here to help. So, my advice would be to give PW a try and see first hand what you can do with it. Best of luck. Claudio
  5. Yes, that's an inherent problem of dropdown menus. Frankly, they are a usability nightmare on touch screens, but there're some work arounds that can make them more usable and user-friendly. I've collected some articles that might help you get the menu system sorted. - StackExchange discussion - 'Designing mouse over events to be compatible with touch screens', here - A responsive dropdown navigation menu, here - Make CSS dropdown menus work on touch devices, here - Browser advisory paper - touch actions, here Well, perhaps the easiest thing would be to just not use dropdown menus , but if you have to, well, then you have to . I hope that helps. Claudio
  6. Hi Joss, Thank you for taking the time to develop and share this profile with us. I think this could be very useful for people interested in integrating Twitter Bootstrap with ProcessWire, as it will pave the way for them to do all kinds of things with it. Having said that, and sorry for getting off topic here, I can't help but think that TB, in this particular instance, is getting in the way and forcing you to make certain decisions, like changing the way you plan your pages, rather than making your job easier, which is what's supposed to do. I'm certainly not negating the value of using such tools as TB, but I do believe that, sometimes, as it seems in this case, they are rather counter productive. This is of course just my opinion, and, doubtless to say, I might be completely wrong!
  7. Hi Alex, Nice job you've done with the blog profile! I do get this error "Unable to complete this request due to an error. Error has been logged." when trying to access the 'Archives' page in the blog section. Perhaps something to have a look at.
  8. Great stuff! Very sleek and modern. Beautiful logo as well.
  9. My goodness me! Longest word I've seen in my life, by quite a margin. Now, I have to say I visited Finland some years ago and really liked how Finnish sounds. It was so different to anything else I had been exposed to (language wise), that I simply loved it!
  10. This looks impressive, Ryan, thank you very much for your hard work! I have to agree with the rest, the kind of performance we'll be able to achieve with this module installed is just amazing! ProcessWire just keeps getting better and better!
  11. I think you're right here. Organising local groups, independent of language-specific PW subdomains, on a per country basis seems the way to go. The Textpattern forum example is very relevant and worth considering. It could serve as a source of inspiration for our case. Nah, sorry guys, but my vote has to go for Joomla!

    Congrats, Soma, you most definitely deserve it! I can personally say I've learned loads of stuff about ProcessWire and web development in general thanks to your contributions to the forums. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
  13. Hi Soma, I had certainly seen the forum showcase section, but not the other one. I don't know how I missed it! Thanks for pointing it out to me.
  14. Hi all, I've just come across this Twitter conversation: I'm sure this has been discussed before, but hey, don't you guys think it'd be a good idea to have a list featuring websites built with ProcessWire? I think this could be a great selling point, as people unfamiliar with the system could see, at a glance, the kind of results they can expect to get with PW. The Symphony project, for example, has done this beautifully. Well, let's see what you think!
