Zealus Is A Helper

Yeah, somebody had to brag about how good we are, why don’t I do it myself 🙂

A very good friend of mine asked if I can help him set up some Football (as in soccer) Team Manager web sites for two leagues he’s in. Needless to say I was eager to help and within days both http://swisswifa.com and http://www.portrfm.com were set up thanks to the folks that develop Joomla and Mambo content management systems.

Basically both systems still bear very similar look, components and modules are still compatible with both (developers promise they’ll ruin that in Joomla version 1.1 due later this year), system can literally be set up in minutes and I never even imagined having enough time to see all the templates that were developed for Mambo/Joomla. In fact, at some point I was very tempted to use Mambo to run our own Zealus web site.

So far, both sites are running (in addition to core components) guestbook and comments components, admins are thinking of using some photo gallery, although I am not entirely sure as to what exactly they are going to put there.

Zealus Linx Catalog

We have moved our link catalog that used to be located at top.zealus.com to it’s own separate domain – wadv.net (We like to call it Web ADVert net). The idea behind it is that there will be three different types of links stored. Free (via redirect script), direct (plain paid and clients) and direct (preferred). Basically, system breaks down like this:
Free links. You can post as many as you want, catalog requires reciprocal link, it may take up to 30 days for link to be approved and posted.
Direct links. Subscription based, that is – your link stays direct as long as you pay, after subscription expires we keep your link for free but via redirect script. Takes up to 24 hours since the payment is posted to publish the link.
Direct client links. Clients of Zealus Web Design Studio get listed with direct links for free. Posted as soon as client’s web site is considered complete.
Preferred. Premium subscription direct links, always displayed above the rest of the links, links printed in bold letters. After subscription expires we keep link for free, still in bold, however, no displaying preference will be given. Posted as free immediately, upgraded to preferred within 24 hours of payment confirmation.

Right now system is ready to accept free subscriptions, PayPal subscriptions will be added shortly, payment by credit card is still being contemplated.

AquaShield Pool enclosure and my bad english :)

Got a call from the client this morning – he complained that the text on the front page is written in bad English. My first reaction was to ask – how many people REALLY read what’s written there… and what’s more important for him – good page ranking in search engines or some mistakes (they are, actually, just sentences that are hard to read, not so much mistakes) that will hardly be notices.

Here’s what’s there now:

Let Aqua Shield increase your entertaining space and transform your outdoor pool into an indoor paradise all year round.

Aqua Shield Inc. is a manufacturer of State of the Art Telescopic Pool Enclosures. Our unique patented design of any pool enclosure has all the advantages of traditional enclosures, but incorporates a telescopic feature (that’s why we also call it telescopic pool enclosure) that allows one piece seamless sections to slide under each other effortlessly, while maintaining a watertight seal and minimizing the loss of heat generated by the sun or water heater.

Not so much for repeating text, but for making sure the keywords are there did I care 🙂
