I recently moved back home to Toronto, Canada after living in Asia for almost 6 years. I decided it was time to move back and get a "real" job since freelance and contract work was starting to die down.
Upon my arrival I started work with a company downtown Toronto, BetterTheWorld.com. I was hired as a Sr. PHP Developer to work with their current platform and help design and build out new properties. We are currently using Croogo to rebuild one of our current properties and will be open sourcing some of the plugins we develop.
Hopefully I will have some free time to write some more articles on Croogo, CakePHP, web development and release some more code. Stay tuned and subscribe to my RSS feed.
After a long hiatus I am back with an update to my Croogo theme 'Simple'. To install simply unzip the theme's folder into the themed directory or use the built in theme uploader in Croogo's administration panel. Look forward to some new posts on Croogo, CakePHP and some other stuff I have going on.
If you have any questions or problems drop me a line in the comments section.

Download: Simple Croogo Theme 1.3.2
I just saw this on Twitter while doing a search for Croogo related news. It looks like Matt Curry has released a plugin that will migrate your Wordpress blog over to Croogo. I would give this a shot but I'm currently not running any Wordpress sites. This is great news for any CakePHP developer running a Wordpress blog looking to switch over to the CakePHP based Croogo.
Right now it looks like it migrates most data, but I would test it on a development server before you migrate your production blog.
Fahad, the lead developer followed through with his promise of delivering Croogo 1.2 before the end of the month. The new release packs a handful of new features that extend Croogo's functionality. A few of my favourites include the new hook and plugin system and custom helpers for themes.
I plan on upgrading this weekend to 1.2 and I'm excited to see what the future holds for the next release.
Wow, it's been about two weeks since my last post. I have been quite busy in the last month finishing up a custom social network that I developed in CakePHP.
Fahad the author of Croogo has added some great new functionality to Croogo especially when it comes to extending the system and creating your own plugins/hooks. I will be writing up some tutorials once the hook system is complete (hopefully in the next few days).
To test out the new plugin/hook system I developed a Tagcloud plugin with it's own admin panel that will allow you to add a tagcloud to your Croogo install. Check out the plugin page for more details and to download.
