All of us here at Tekdi Web Solutions are avid trekkers.. We are always looking at a chance to go out into the wilderness be it in the Sahyadris or the Himalayas or some obscure jungle..

We love to trek in the Forts in the Sahyadris & love to keep a count of which all forts we have visited.. On our latest trek to a fort called as Bhairavgad , an idea emerged to develop a small Social application ( Staring as a facebook app) that would let avid trekkers like us make a portfolio of the fort's we'd visited to date..

P.S. We get a lot of such ideas when we go on treks but few manage to get converted to something useful.. A similar idea was developing a super interactive & intelligent community driven information portal on forts the biodiversity of the sahyadris.. It started out well  with a lot of information being compiled & an intelligent engine being developed on Joomla 1.0 but was abandoned later due to lack of time..

But with this new application that dream is back in focus.. Using this application as a base, we envisage to develop a community driven database of information on the various aspects of various forts in the Sahyadris like routes, flora, fauna, architechture, history etc.. This may not be limited to just Sahyadri treks but any location in the future..

It can have a great application in Bio diversity mapping efforts as well..

Coming back to the current application..

  • It will allow users to add a fort & date on which they visited the fort..
  • They can add people who went to that trek with them by their email address
  • The application will be intelligently be able to suggest people to the user who were on the fort on the same day.

Future versions will allow adding Fort Specific information as well as trek specific information..

Here's a screen shot of the email thats sent :) .

More information to follow up later.. The application should have its public release next week !

Fighting Spam in a Joomla Powered Website

SPAM ! This is one problem that any webmaster today has to contend with in his daily tasks. If not dealt with on a fundamental level it can really become a pain in the neck & also end up in consuming time.  Not removing Spam comments /registrations/ forums posts on websites can really be harmful for its reputation & credibility.
