Are you a Facebook Page admin? Stumped why the "Use Facebook as ..." function doesn't allow you to post and comment on your pages as yourself? Want to make a personal opinion on your company or organisation's Facebook page but are an administrator of that page?

use-facebook-as

The feature is indeed there, and the default to always comment and post as the page is set for privacy, such that any official posts can't link to the individual's personal profile. However, differentiation is sometimes important to denote whether the comments, posts or any opinions made on the page are representative of the individual, or the company or organisation that the page represents.

So, how do I comment on a Facebook page as myself?

Well not quite cheesecake, but pavlova was the key award of choice as our newest Alltraders team member BJ recently celebrated receiving his Official Australian Citizenship.

Work stopped for a moment to mark the occasion and hear BJ's speech on his impressive history, followed by the presentation to Birendra of a large pavlova (from the Cheesecake Shop), together with perhaps the most iconic edible Australiana goodies - a platter of Vegemite. One of our managers, Vic presented BJ with the goods, which were thoroughly and enjoyably consumed within a short space of time.

From everyone at Alltraders, we congratulate you, BJ!

Security is always an important issue when you have a website on the internet. Whether it is keeping your website up to date with Joomla’s security patches or making sure your website has the correct file permissions.

One very simple but important way of keeping your site secure is by removing key distinguishable elements that make the website recognisable to the public as being powered by a particular content management system.

Removing the generator meta tag in Joomla’s code is one such part of this process. I recently wrote up a DIY article on how to remove this meta tag with possible security issues. Hop over to my blog over at hotshotdeveloper.com to find out how.

Not too long ago, I wrote an article discussing the benefits of spending a little for several plugins that slam into the JCE (Joomla! Content Editor).

'Linking to articles/sections/categories through the [TinyMCE] editor was the equivalent of slowly scrapping your face against a brick wall – it felt like a painful, pointless exercise.'

That opinion still stands - if you are looking for the much needed extended capabilities of image, caption, video, Flash and file management in JCE, then look no further - Spend around AU $15 for the JCE and get a lot of bang for buck. If you are still using TinyMCE however (the standard WYSIWYG editor), then start off by downloading JCE for free. This is one upgrade you will not regret in the slightest.

The next Joomla User Group Adelaide hosted at Alltraders will be on the 19th of April from 6pm.

Since the Sydney group is talking about Drupal, we think good discussion point for this month's meeting is a recent review of open source content management systems, which caused Joomla co-founder Brian Teeman to tweet last night,

"i'm going to write a review comparing win3.1 with latest version of osx - doh not that stupid but this guy is http://tinyurl.com/3ptrtpo"
- Brian Teeman

Do have a read of the article - we hope like us, you find it amusing and a source of new questions.

We thought you'd like to know about our new branding of Alltraders and the unveiling of the new Alltraders logo.

If you've been in contact with us recently, you may or may not have noticed this new logo on our website and in our email signatures. Needless to say, we are currently undergoing a corporate image makeover, based on our previous logo that has been with us for more than a decade. At this point I'll pass you over to Cohen for a quick breakdown of the illustrious design decisions of our new branding.

"Although the current Alltraders logo was quite strong, it was looking very dated. We wanted a logo that would see Alltraders into the next 10 years. It had to be a symbol that would stand the test of time - not always the easiest thing to pull off. I based the Alltraders symbol on the current logo, just with a twist.

Aside from producing spectacular results on a daily basis at Alltraders, staff members Cohen Gum, Michael Garratt & Ben Zhang also managed to take home gold in the Wayville basketball finals Tuesday night. We can ignore the fact that it was E grade basketball with only the bottom 3 teams playing off for free pizza and an amazing glass cup. This is in no way a good representation of the first class skills that were put on display. After a shabby season, once again The Sinking Drinkers became pressure conquering, cold stone killers during finals. Demoralising their competition at both ends of the court, tripling their score and remaining completely professional as their opponents spiralled into dissent. The team managed to secure their second shiny cup in 2 successive seasons. Nice work guys.

Tour Down Under - Alltraders sponsor Jeremy ReesThe Tour Down Under has been run and won, and Alltraders' Sponsored rider Jeremy Rees tells us about his ride.

The tour went pretty smoothly, and there were no problems with my bicycle. The start was really slow. When it was time for riders to start riding (at the end of the countdown), I had to wait about 20 minutes before I could start pedalling normally as there were lots (maybe thousands) of cyclists in front of me. I noticed some traffic that had to wait a while (perhaps a long while) to let the cyclists pass.

I felt a bit lonely the entire time as I rode by myself. I could have rode with some people that I knew, but regretfully, it did not happen. It was very windy, which made the ride a bit harder. I enjoyed the climbs; none of them were very difficult. I think my top speed was 59km/h on the final descent to Strathalbyn.

How do I start blogging?
How do I insert images and video?
How can social media help my business?

The answers to these questions and more can be found in the next Joomla! User Group Adelaide meeting for 2011, to be held on March 15 at Alltraders, Adelaide.

If you're looking for some free advice for your website, come along and everyone'll be glad to help. The Joomla User Group Adelaide is open to all internet users, clients, and pizza lovers.

Sorry I threw that last one in for fun to get your attention.
