Joomla! vs WordPress

November 19th, 2006 No comments

[Alexa]

Last Friday, for the first time since BlogsWeek.com maintains its Stats page, Joomla surpassed WordPress as Most visited CMS site. According to Alexa, who provides the data for this stat, Joomla! ranked as the 421st most popular site on the web, while WordPress held the 425th place on the same list.

Alexa computes its traffic rankings by evaluating two parameters, Reach and Page Views. While Reach reflects the number of users who visit that site, Page Views represent the number of pages on the site viewed by those users.

Actually more users are visiting WordPress, but Joomla! is receiving more page views. The composite result is that Joomla! is now the number one in our Most visited CMS site list.

WordPress keeps its first place in our other two stats, Powered by . . . and Most linked CMS site. Of course these stats don’t make any claim of scientific accuracy, they are just intended to entertain our readers.

LifeType 1.1.2 released

November 12th, 2006 No comments

[LifeType]

The second maintenance release of the 1.1 branch, LifeType 1.1.2, is now available.

The issues addressed in LifeType 1.1.2 are not as important in nature as the ones addressed in LifeType 1.1.1 but the development team decided that there was no need to hold this release back any longer, although it has hardly been a month since the release of LifeType 1.1.1.

The areas in which fixes are concentrated in this release are the post preview feature, which now works with any character encoding, improved memory usage when listing the contents of resource albums, and several improvements to TinyMCE and the ‘inservideo’ plugin in order to make it easier to embed Flash videos in posts.

For additional information, please read the release announcement.
