WordPress Blog and Website for Local Small Business

Stacey Nachajski is the owner of Great Brook Media, and has a background in Public Relations and Advertising—but she has followed her true love—Branding and Social Media.

Successful Joomla Website/Learning Portal for a Healthy Message

4Web recently launched a website for Massachusetts Working on Wellness, a new statewide initiative to help Massachusetts employers develop and implement health-related policies and procedures for their employees. There are two faces to the site:

  • the publicly-accessible face that describes the program, accepts applications for entry into the program, and provides a myriad of health-related resources to the general public, and
  • an integrated LMS (Learning Management System) for registered program participants.

Custom Template for Multilingual Joomla Site

A little over four years ago 4Web had the pleasure of working with Somuga, an animation company in Basque Country in northern Spain, to create the multilingual Howoldies website. We were thrilled when they contacted us to develop a second children’s site, The Giftbringers. This new site needed to be multilingual, responsive, provide special interactive activities for registered users, AND work with the beautiful, graphic-intensive design Somuga provided to us.

Massachusetts Attorney Gets New WordPress Website

Bob Allison is a personal injury attorney with over 25 years experience helping people with personal injury claims. He wasn’t satisfied with the traffic or inquiries being generated by his previous website and knew he needed professional assistance. Not only did he need a website that would yield better initial contacts from injury victims, but he needed WordPress web developers willing to take the time to understand his needs. As always it was important that we find ways to keep costs down for Bob while we improved his website.

Joomla 3

Joomla 3.4.5 Important Security Patch

Today an important security release will become available for Joomla 3. If you have a Joomla 3 website it is important to ensure this patch gets applied as soon as possible. BEFORE applying any update, 4Web recommends backing up your website, validating that your backup worked correctly, and storing that backup off the server where your website is hosted. Actually we recommend you do this on a regular basis depending on how often you update your website.
