Many professional bloggers are now converting their web pages from Drupal to WordPress. Reason? WordPress is easier, better, and user-friendlier. Many tech savvy people may argue that Drupal is the ideal place for technically sound ones; however, there are many, who cite for the struggle, they have faced during posting their blogs in Drupal. There are a couple of reasons, why many web users are switching from Drupal to WordPress. If you are interested to imbibe the process for a better blogging experience, here are some tips on how to migrate from Drupal to WordPress, mentioned below. Before landing on the topic, let’s take a look why you might need the switch.


Why WordPress is better than Drupal:


·         WordPress is quicker than Drupal. The tasks that you can perform on Drupal, can be executed much faster on WordPress.

·         WordPress has the autosave option, which takes care of your incomplete content, while on Drupal, there is no such option in the text editor.

·         WordPress offers more Plugins.

·         WordPress has the Thesis theme, which takes extra care to make your page rank higher in search engines.

·         There is WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor on WordPress, with which you don’t have to take extra burdens to add HTML links.

·         Moderating comments is easier on WordPress.


How to switch to WordPress from Drupal:


Migrating from Drupal to WordPress is not an easy task. You first need to work on the offline copies in the archive. Dump Drupal database from your system and import it into a fresh database. You can use MySQL for this conversion.


Install WordPress into your system, using the old database server, where the Drupal database is kept. You now have Drupal and WordPress running on the same server but in separate database. Don’t forget to give unique names to the databases.


You may need some programming knowledge with MySQL and PHP to work on Drupal. You can enable PHP on Drupal following the path:




You need to change the location; else Google will consider it as duplicate content. With slight coding, you can inform Google that the content is being shifted from Drupal to WordPress. After the switch, whenever, you need to post something, just enable ‘Input Format’.


This is the basic procedure of migrating from Drupal to WordPress. Now log in to WordPress site and you will supposedly find all your contents and posts along with the comments on your new WordPress site. If you find all your posts and comments in the migrated database, you can dump the WordPress database and import the archive into a new database on the server. Now a new WordPress should be installed and configured on the server so that you can use the new database properly.


Your wordPress site is ready. Happy blogging!

If you are accustomed with the Internet, Flash games need no introduction. Flash games are interactive media created for online and mobile applications. Flash development has revolutionized the way people develop websites, adding gloss to them. Ranging from small interactive applications to web design, 2D side-scrollers, and puzzle games, Flash developers have done it all over the years.


Adobe Flash (earlier known as Macromedia Flash) is one of the favourite tools for web developers as well as game developers for the development of interactive applications. However, there are few things that separate a good Flash game from an ordinary one. In this article, we shall discuss the important points that a Flash developer should keep in mind while developing games.


Tips for Good Flash Development


Plan Hard – Good developers need to be great planners as well. You need to create the game in your mind even before you have made the first click on your mouse. Even a small puzzle game written in Flash is likely to include several main screens or game states, audio files, graphical elements, and action scripts. In Flash development, it isn’t uncommon to start with a pen and paper than with a keyboard and mouse.


Design Graphic Elements - Catchy graphics always attract users and so, it is important that the graphics for your Flash Games be designed well. You can create basic graphics within Flash itself or import graphic elements designed in Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw or any other graphic designing and editing software.


Code Well – Once your graphic elements are ready, the next step and the most important one is coding. In this stage, you write the codes to make the game functional. Adobe ActionScript comes in handy while coding and one should proficiently use it. Instead of testing the game on actual graphics, one can opt to use the graphics holder at this stage.


Add Graphics and Audio – Once you are sure with the functionality of the game, it is time for you to add graphics and audio to the flash games. Be careful with the integration of graphics and see if every element functions according to the scripts. Check if all the buttons and other interactive elements work accordingly. As far as the audio is concerned, ensure that the background audio blends well with the game and audio clips following the cue from the scripts.


Final Touches – In Flash, add the game introduction and end of level screen, at the end. Most Flash developers add credits to their games at this stage. It is also advisable to get this game tested by another developer to ensure its proper functionality.


One of the best means to get Flash games developed is to outsource these to offshore development centers. This guarantees highly functional games built by expert developers at highly competitive prices.

The launch of iPhone has revolutionized the way world talks about Smartphones. iPhone development has become the benchmark of mobile application development. IPhone developers are churning out newer applications day in and day out to meet growing needs of users. Offshore development centers around the world are busy developing business applications, fun applications, and many others for iPhone users across the world. Most of the businesses outsource their custom development projects to these centers to get better deals.


Competition that surrounds iPhone application development, has led to the development of many unsuccessful apps, which have served neither the businesses nor the developers. Thousands of dollars have been lost behind these unsuccessful development projects most of which have failed due to some common mistakes committed by developers.


Common Mistakes to Avoid in iPhone Development


Don’t try to over invent – It is wise to keep the apps simple. This saves time for developers as well as appreciated by the end user who uses it. In most cases development needs can be fulfilled by the iOS SDK that has an expansive library for UI elements. In some rare case, you might need to build a novel UI from scratch. The development process becomes complex and unreliable when every element is invented from scratch. Try getting buttons, sidebars, dialog, and tables using the same UI from SDK rather than going for custom development.


Keep the resolution right – As in a photograph or video, it is very important to get the resolution correct right from the start. Mobile application development lets you have a lot of stunning and eye catching graphics in 2D and 3D animations. iPhone 4 retina display performs best with HD graphical content. Some iPhone developers create larger graphics for good resolution but it slows down the application. So it is important for you to get things right. You can use the recent SDK and the application must be optimized in the latest iOS.


Get the animation right – You need to strike a balance between right kind of animation and usability. The USP of an application is its functionality more than the animation. Many developers commit the mistake of overdoing the animation, which can lead to the application slowdowns and increase in size. On the other hand, poor animation does not bring in the X-factor to applications therefore, making them unpopular.


Try to avoid multitasking – Many developers around the world work on multiple development projects at the same time. This is not advisable as it will be difficult for you to prioritize between the applications. Each application has its own specific requirements and needs a dedicated developer to work on it.


Application development isn’t just about technology but needs a lot of creativity where you will also need to keep in mind the functionalities. There are protocols that need to be followed in the creating the best applications for iPhone as mentioned at http://www.evontech.com/iphone-solutions.html.
