Joomla Tutorials and Tips

Our first foray into web design following the creating of static HTML websites, was using Joomla a few months after it was born more than 10 years ago around the year 2005. We immediately fell in love at how easy it was to setup a site from scratch. As we learnt how to use Joomla, we documented any problems we encountered on CollectiveRay, or at that time, DART Creations. We kept this habit of documenting anything we thought needed to be explained better...and the site grew and grew with tips and tutorials.

10 years down the line, and CollectiveRay ranks in the 1st or first few places of lots of Joomla related queries.

WordPress Tips and Tricks

As we grew in web design, we came across plenty of other excellent technology to use for our websites. WordPress is another excellent CMS which we use to develop websites and we did the same as we did for Joomla. Stuff which we thought needed a bit of a learning curve to understand, we tried to fully explain for the benefits of the internet at large.

Guest Posting Policy

We provide detailed actionable tutorials. Essentially, if we feel that an article does not provide you with enough value, we will not publish it. In fact, we don't take guest posts which are only looking to add links to their site. Any guest post which we publish should provide excellent value. Essentially, you are getting a lot of value by posting on CollectiveRay, because you are getting an excellent backlink, so we believe you should return the favour in the form of excellent content for our readers.
