joomla_logo
As Joomla! professionals in Alberta, Canada, there are many reasons we love this Content Management System, or CMS. In previous posts, we've talked about how Joomla! is a great choice for a professional web design because it's robust, secure and flexible, but one of the things that sets this CMS apart, in our minds, is that they're continuously working to improve the platform for users like you. For anyone who chooses to work with our website designers to create a custom Joomla! site, this is just added reassurance that your website investment is going to be worth every cent. Here are some recent developments in the world of Joomla! that only add to the awesomeness of this CMS: Joomla! Voted Number 1 for Best Free CMS - Again!

100+ Websites Later, Saltmedia Has a Lot to Celebrate!
Six years ago, we had a vision for a company that would offer website design services that were a cut above - solutions that were perfectly tailored to meet the unique online needs of businesses, organizations and individuals both now and in the future. From our home-based office, we had the pleasure of working with many different people, charitable organizations and businesses from a wide variety of industries, providing the graphic design and website services they needed to create powerful online presences. Fast-forward to 2016 and Saltmedia has grown from that home-based Grande Prairie website design firm to a multi-faceted team of experts who now work their magic from our new office at #101 10418 99th Avenue.

Share the Love & Pay it Forward this Christmas

Share the Love & Pay it Forward this Christmas
Every time I read about or have the pleasure of working with an organization or individuals, I can't help but get that warm and fuzzy, good all over feeling. You know the one. It's that feeling that comes over you when you know someone has been helped in some way, no matter how seemingly insignificant it may be. No matter how busy we are in our day to day lives or how weighted down we can be by the grim news we see on the TV, supporting and showing love and compassion to people in our communities and around the world does just as much good for ourselves as it does those we help. Paying it Forward - Not Back There's a big difference between paying someone back for something they did for you and choosing to do something kind and/or generous for another person for no reason other than...
