    We will soon be placing some of our more public Joomla extensions here for download and setting up an automatic update system for them so that if you use one of them it will show when it needs updating within your Joomla Administrator dashboard. 

     In keeping with the philosphy here at CSC, we will try to have easy to use, simple and helpful modules and components for your Joomla site.  Coming soon!   First one will be a better type of module that displays a count of your user database. With some of our sites experiencing huge floods of spam users many of which never fully activate - it is good to have a reminder of the total number of users when you sign into your site.  This can of course be set to display to admins, managers, or all users depending on your need. Look for the CSC USERCOUNT module soon.  (beta testing now - write if you wish to try it.)


For those of you who do not know already, JOOMLA is a CMS software.  A CMS or Content Management System is a rather complex group of thousands of files and small programs that let a website become more than just static pages you pay a developer $$ to update once or twice a year.  Properly setup, you can use a Joomla website to make your site more readable for all devices including smartphones, tablets and various full computers.  Properly setup Joomla sites can easily change their look or color scheme with a few simple clicks - even if you have hundreds of pages.  

   Furthermore - the Joomla CMS software is free - and open source developement project with many thousands of users contributing and improving it each year. Many modules or components can be added to Joomla to make it into a store, a real estate site, a blog - almost anything you can think of.  We use a Joomla CMS here for Common Sense Sites and many of our more advanced sites for clients are Joomla based.  While it takes a bit more work and understanding to setup well, it gives so much more flexibility and makes it easy for you to easily edit, add or delete content on your site.  

  If you are interested - give us a shout - and for more information go to and find out what a great system Joomla is and how many sites on the Internet are using Joomla.

    Hey - yes we are still kicking... been too busy to do much updating to the site... you know how it goes, the mechanic never has time to fix his own car?  Same here - but we have been very busy this year.  Here below are some of the things we have been working on - hopefully we will do more on these stories for you soon. 

   New changes to browser's security have knocked out most of the older online radio players in the sites so we researched and came up with some great looking players that use HTML5 and should work on most devices and browsers.  And they work great too! Check for a working example.

    Also we see some changes in what the regulators of copyrighted music want from online stations - and we discuss some ways to help keep those who are trying to be compliant fully legal and maybe reduce their fees too.. more details later..
