Moving on, in the year 2007 we decided to adopt CSS Style sheets and make our banners a bit more shiny to reflect our name. So we used Linux Gimp to create the basic Sun that replaced the old Illumine Star. For that reason, we used the Gimp Super Nova lighting Effect. In the same time – we created our own style sheets based on Arial and Tahoma fonts. This was the last page version that did not rely on a CMS system. The page was also translated 100% to Greek.
Years 2010 – 2013. We decided that a CMS system is the present and the future. We had chosen Joomla – the leading trend and #1 CMS tool at that time. Another decision was to have the page only in English since most of our clients were abroad or companies with English as the communication language. Site included a dedicated login page for accessing the on line training material since we had a lot of online training courses at that time.
From 2015 we moved to WordPress. We are using a couple of plugins such as Nooz, Contact Form, Eggplant, Sitemap to make the site working and we do use a lot of extras. Our company Blog and LinkedIn profiles are also referenced from the site.
All those years, according to our philosophy, Illumine IT Consulting is utilizing 100% Free Software tools to produce the site and everything around it. All buttons, banners, icons and tiny images are designed and implemented by us using 100% licence free software and not by a third party company – proving that we are available to cater our own needs even for our web site.
