As you may or may not have noticed, one of the principles we stress at Ten-321 Enterprises is affordability. Since the beginning, our tagline has been “Making it affordable to have a presence on the Web.” But, what exactly do we mean when we say that?

Are we implying that our services cost less than those of our competitors? Yes and no. A lot of that depends on who you qualify as our competitors. Ten-321 Enterprises is not the least expensive (financially) company you’ll find on the Web; but we do offer the best value for your money. Read the rest of this entry »

Connect Your WordPress Blog With Your Social Networks

Social Network Icons

If you use WordPress as a blogging platform, you may have noticed that there is a glut of plug-ins and applications making it easy for your users to share your blog posts on various social networks, but there are very few plug-ins designed to allow you to automatically publish your own posts to various social networks.

There are a few, though, and they seem to work rather well. Read the rest of this entry »

Bethania Kids – A Brand New Website

Our Ministries - Bethania Website

A few weeks ago, we were very proud to unveil a brand new website for our client Bethania Kids. The project took approximately 4 months from start to finish, and turned out extremely well. Starting with a beautiful and challenging website design from Moeller Design, we took the ball and ran with it, building a full-featured website based on WordPress 3.0.1.

From the Bethania Kids mission statement:

The mission of Bethania Kids is to nurture, and equip the children of India to change their world through Jesus’ love. Bethania Kids defines nurturing as providing food, clothing, shelter, medical and dental care, and emotional support.

The new website includes a promotional marquee for the home page, which is easily switched out using the WordPress backend. The client now has the ability to post a single marquee image that will appear every time the home page is loaded or multiple promotional items that will rotate randomly each time a visitor returns to the home page. Using the “sticky” posts feature in WordPress, a single promo item can appear each time a new visitor comes to the website, with random promo items appearing on each subsequent visit.

This is the first in what I plan to be a series of posts about the software, applications and plug-ins we use in the back-end of our website and our clients’ websites. For tonight’s post, I wanted to briefly share about one of the WordPress plug-ins installed here on our website and a few of our clients’ sites.

That WordPress plug-in is called Twitoaster, and what it does is pretty simple. First of all, it allows you to automatically send a tweet whenever you publish a new WordPress post or page. That’s cool enough on its own, but the really cool thing Twitoaster does is to keep track of when and where your posts are mentioned and/or retweeted on Twitter. Then, it adds those tweets as new comments on the blog post. Read the rest of this entry »
