joomla support cheshire manchester merseyside north west ukIf you want to develop a blog to help promote your website, then the best place to host the blog is INSIDE the website you want to promote.

Who says? All the SEO experts.

As a result, all WYNCHCO website designs, by default, include a pre-configured blog for your use.

 

Drag & drop images directly into blog posts

The JCE Content Editor enables you drag & drop images directly into website articles.

This is great when you are pushed for time.

Images dragged from your device will be stored in the root of the IMAGES directory.

You can subsequently transfer uploaded images from the root of the IMAGES directory to any sub-directory using the CUT & PASTE buttons provided.
